friday happy moments


Some simple things that made me smile on Friday.

...that I can plant something and it actually produce. My Rhubarb that I planted last year, it is doing so well this year.


I planted these beautiful sunshine flowers last year from seed. I will forever be amazed by flowers.


I can't help it, I love 'RUST'! Anything rusty is beautiful, IMHO.


I know you all are probably sick of seeing pics of my day lilies, but they are so beautiful. I can hardly hold back the tears when I look at them.


Hollyhock I planted from seed last year. The color is brilliant; a true eggplant color - Stunning to behold.


I don't know if it is because of where these are located in the yard or what, but the color is so bright and bold that you can almost taste it.


Well, I don't eat many things with sugar in it, at least not very often, but yesterday, I made myself a root beer float and topped it with whipped cream and nutmeg. OMG, it was so delicious! This is a very small glass, so it wasn't so bad.

I thought my daylilies we're starting to bloom, however now that I look at the hollyhock - I'm not sure what I have! I'm taking pics tomorrow and relying on you and the Blue Ridge Gal to help me out!

Lenore, Glad you enjoyed looking at the picture of the hollyhock, they are truly beautiful.

Have a lovely weekend, darling. xoxo

Di, Of course you can have a sip, but you could have a whole one. These glasses are just a little larger than a shot glass, making it just about right for me. xoxo

Pop, I bet one of us will know.:) It's such a delight when flowers bloom.

flowers will never cease to amaze me either, nor will a good root bear float which i haven't had in a long time!

Anthony said...

Purdy flowers!

You have quite the green thumb, Six! And it also looks as though you can make a mean root beer float. Yummm!

You are definitely one multi-talented lady!

I think rust is beautiful when surrounded by greenery... it seems poignant as in natural cycle-of-life. Beautiful photos, Debra...

I just love the pictures of your garden. I never tire of daylily pictures - that orange is just so brilliant! And I envy your hollyhocks! I planted some in another yard, they were one of my favorite flowers. At 110 degrees, you have our high 90's beat, but I'm still going to whine about how it's been too hot to work much in my garden, haha.

Beautiful! I too love rust especially on old iron gates x

John said...

I just had to chime in on that beautiful Hollyhock! I've never seen one that color (and my yard is full of them!). I just love all your pics, especially the flowers. You are quite the photographer. Glad I found your blog, it's on my blogroll now.
