My David Austin Roses are in full bloom as is my lavender.
Two of my favorites.
This is a mix of Abraham Darby and Crocus Rose.
Truly, I'm not sure if that is what these two are because when I planted them ten years ago I did not pay attention to the names. This is my best guess, though.
My new-to-me vintage zinc pots from the Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Couture store in Santa Monica.
The peony poppies are also doing splendidly.
Lovely mixes of color for my front porch.
We have had little rain the last few weeks and then we had at least four hours of down pouring rain. So needed. I went out the next morning to see how my plants survived and they did just fine. I cut bunches and brought them inside.
My kitchen smells amazing.
They don't last but a day or two but I thoroughly enjoy them while they do.
I hope you are all having a wonderful summer (or winter depending on where you are!!)
I thought I would share a few of my favorite flower photos with you today.
I had very good luck with keeping hydrangeas going this winter. I cut the stems at an angle, dipped the ends in Alum. I changed the water and redid the steps and they lasted up to 6 weeks!
This bunch is in my vintage European milk bucket.
My favorite white vintage pitcher full of blue hydrangeas. I recently found this chippy green table, I just love it.
For Valentine's day I surprised my love with a romantic treat in bed.
Here is the last bit of hydrangeas. They are in my vintage sap bucket from Maine. I'm originally from Vermont (I live in Colorado now) so this was so fun to find. My sister got it for me for my birthday from A Beautiful Mess Antiques.
Spring has landed here in Colorado and I hope to show you photos of my gardens and flowers soon!
