One of the things I really love about spring and summer is that it allows me to decorate in one of my favorite of all time colors, pink. As you all know by now, my pink rose garden is one of my favorite things.
I am totally in love with my new falling in love rosebush that Mom and I both bought recently at the Farmington Gardens 1/2 price sale.
I feel like I have already got my $10 worth of roses out of it and I know I will have years of beautiful blooms still on their way. How fun!
When walking the dogs last night Janae laughed at me as I was "stealing weeds" out of a neighbors weedy yard because I wanted some Queens Anne's Lace to go with my pretty roses.
I think it looks lovely!
When fully open this rose has such ruffled petals. Perfect for my self proclaimed "year of the ruffle".
My Mom found this cute little wire shoe at a garage sale.
The kids and I thought it looked a little too much like a halloween decoration in black. But I knew it would be pretty in pink!
Mom also found this sweet little window decoration--for a quarter!
Summer is quickly slipping away and though I hate the heat I am still disappointed. I am such a spring and summer decorator--fall and winter are more difficult for me because I don't like the traditional colors for those seasons. Goodwill already has their halloween stuff out. I am not ready for that yet!
Most of my flowers are dead now..but at least my roses and my potted plants are still hanging on making me happy.
I love my front porch!
I hope everyone is having a lovely end of summer. I hope you will all inspire me to be able to do more fall and winter decorating in colors I can live with!
Thanks for visiting!
