    After spending 2 1/2 days working in the gardens and yard I rewarded myself with a handful of flowers to arrange in the vase I picked up at a garage sale for $2 (It is a McCoy!) 016.JPG 026.JPG
    Here is a double headed painted daisy I brought in with the rest. 008.JPG
    This came up in a packet of wildflowers, The flower head is just about the width of a nickel. Anyone know what it is? 025.JPG

    A look around the yard, too.
    Here is a sunset coral peony, past it's prime. (I forgot to get a photo sooner.) 1st year to bloom and only ONE on the plant. 036.JPG
    Some new Hosta I picked up at garage sales! Big divides for $5 each and smaller ones for $3 Cut down a tree that was struggling. Added a pot of annuals to top of stump. 038.JPG
    The new Calla lily in a pot I bought end of season clearance last fall. 058.JPG Wheelbarrow is starting to fill in. (And the Japanese Iris are in bloom.) 054.JPG
    The flower bed in front corner is looking much better. (Getting so full!) 044.JPG

    An anemone?

    Very nice, Carol :)!

    I'm just in from the garden, also. There isn't anything flowering out there. I spread some fertilizer and tilled it in. DW put some melon plants in while I continued with the tilling. Could have finished despite the heat but broke a sheer pin. Back at it, tomorrow.

    Carol Dee, I LOVE your real McCoy! I used to collect those and found many of them at yard sales for cheap...folks didn't know what they had. Yours is particularly beautiful!

    Your flowers are gorgeous!!! :love If you don't put that pic of the wheelbarrow in the POW, I'll just cry. :hit

    Thank you for sharing these pics....they are so good I feel I could reach out and touch everything. :woot

    Your yard and gardens are looking great. I really like the arrangement in the McCoy vase. Had a chance to buy some McCoy on Saturday but they wanted way to much, so I let them keep it.
