The flowers in the front yard are really going crazy right now! So, I took my camera out to capture some of the pretties!
First, meet "George" (yes, we named the tree George! LOL!) He is our Walmart special tree.
One day, while Mr. Mister and I were wandering around, aimlessly, in Walmart, (come on! admit it! you wander aimlessly in Walmart too!) we discovered that all of the trees were on clearance. We spotted this poor, pathetic, half dead tree, and decided to adopt him. We ended up paying around $5.00 dollars for him! You can't BEAT that! And he is doing GREAT! Well, except that he is looking like the Leaning Tower of Pisa right now, because we cannot seem to get a stake to hold him upright. They keep pulling up out of the ground or breaking, when all the dratted wind blows through.
The second picture is of the red bowling ball I made a couple of years ago. I LOVE how it shines in the sun. I need to make another one because the bowling ball has cracked and some of the pebbles/marbles have started to fall off. I am also planning to make a white one for the moon garden (which is still in it's beginning stages.)
The lilies are GORGEOUS right now, and really putting on a show!
The red lilies are everyone's favorite!
There is also salvia, miniature bleeding hearts, and gayfeather.
The columbine is almost done blooming, but it still brings a smile to my face.
Just LOOK at the Echinacea! (Purple Cone Flowers) Even the bees are giving them some LOVE!
There is nothing better than "Flower Power" and "Bee Love" LOL!
I hope that your garden is bringing you as much joy as mine is to me!
