pretty petals

These beauties were left to us in our garden from the original owners of our house. Every June they blossom and its just spectacular! The rose bush itself is pretty large and is in a great location so I'm able to see it every morning.

I'm have no idea what kind of rose bush it is, all I know is that it's beautiful! Anyone have an idea what kind?

Today is the last day to enter my giveaway! Tomorrow I'll be picking the name!! Good luck and thanks for entering!!

garden watchers

These little guys I found last year at a estate sale. I couldn't resist not picking them up and giving them a home. I just love the guy in the middle holding the flowers, so cute! They are placed in my sunroom, looking over my gardens.

It looks like they were hand painted years ago. There is a small signature of some sort on the bottom of each one. Either way they are so cute and unique that I couldn't say no to them!

crazy beautiful foxglove

Here are my foxglove I was talking about in this post. I bought a very SMALL portion of this plant last summer and hoping that it would do well, and to my surprise they kept on getting taller and taller. I have 3 stems that grew and boy were they beautiful! Just take a look!!

The blossoms are so unique looking, so beautiful!

The foxglove are towering over my peonies and the other plants. I'm thinking about buying some more and planting them in my new garden!!

my new wreath

A new wreath I made for over the stairwell going into our family room. I have had a collection of gorgeous silk flowers that I've been wanting to do something for quite some time. I'm really happy with how it turned out, with the different shades of pinks, purples, greens, and whites.

turquoise necklace

My Mom was out shopping one day and saw a turquoise necklace that she loved. When she told me about the necklace and how much it cost, I told her that I would make her one for A LOT less then what it was selling for. After helping her pick out the right turquoise and matching beads, I put together this necklace and matching bracelet. I think it would look so chic wearing a black or white top, but anything would look great on her wearing this!!

my flower boxes

A week later and here are my flower boxes! I think they brighten up the front of the house and add a little summer to the look. Since I've planted them they already have grown a lot! We are in a bit of a heat wave here in Rochester so they are lovin to get watered! Lots n lots!

Here's the front entrance, I bought 2 urns at Christmas Tree store to put on either side of the fence. Filled petunas, marigolds and ageratum. My peonies, roses, and foxglove are grown large and beautiful. Wait to you see the foxglove! They are over 4 foot high!!

A close up of the boxes.

My left overs ready and waiting to be planted!
