Flowers on Saturday 5

Wow - I am really getting behind on my posting.  Usually I have a post waiting in the wings.  I was sick and missed two days of work this week and didn't even turn a computer on the whole time I was home in bed.  I am very behind at work so this is going to be a short one.  Without further ado.....


My Flower Shots

I wish my whole backyard looked like this.  I took this outside a candy store in Pigeon Forge TN a few years ago.  We had a sister trip and stayed for a long weekend in Gatlinburg TN.


I just love these types of flowers.  Blackeyed Susans, Cone Flowers, Daisies and all types like that.  Do I have any in my backyard - uh - that would be a no.  First I have three dogs who think they own that yard.  Second, I had to fix up the front yard first.  We did a pretty good remodel of the front yard last year.  I will try to see if I can find some before shots.  It was a disaster but it is sooo much better now.  Okay, I am at the office and MUST do some work now.

  6. Hope you're feeling better. These photos are gorgeous! Like you, someday I dream of a yard full of these. But for right now, the dogs own the backyard. :-)

  8. Nice pics. Hope you are feeling better. My favorites are cone flowers. I have planted a lot but it is still a long time before flowers will bloom around here.

    1. I absolutely love cone flowers - they are my fave. One of these days when I can get a good border to keep the dogs out I will have tons of them

  9. I hate that your employers won't let you blog all day LOL! Glad you are feeling better! What beautiful flowers, my garden never looks like that! You asked if I was a permanent vendor at the Fancy Flea. Actually it is only held twice a year, in April and November, I have no idea how people could do anything like this on a consistent basis, but I can see doing it twice a year.
