Bright Spot

It's turned overcast, cold and even a little rainy. My friend Connie from SoCal calls it "June Gloom". How appropriate! I thought I would post some pictures of my flowers to brighten up Lulu's Cottage.

This is the view from my kitchen, standing at the sink. I'm not a gardener. I suppose it's apparent to those who are. I think of it as beautiful chaos. Mother Nature is the main organizer!

When I moved in here, lo those many years ago, the red rose bush was here and it was already old. I have stuck trimmings in to the flower bed over the years, and the red bush has spread. I planted the 2 pink roses. They get more flowers every year.

I love the daisies! I tossed some wildflower seeds in the area one year and at some point a small daisy grew. Every year the daisies multiply. I just love them!! Wish they would last the whole summer!!

While we were all celebrating Rhondi's porch party, these 2 fellas were having a porch party of their own!!

This new flower hasn't been planted yet. It's going to go outside my office window. The cool thing is that I saw this flower on a blog and I just loved it. So, when I saw it in the store...I knew I had to have it. The Real World and Blog World collide again!!

I hope you are having a bright day!!



  1. Your garden is beautiful! I love the daisies! And of course, the roses.

  2. Stephanie, I love your view from your window. Just beautiful. I also smiled when I saw the porch dwellers having a fine day. Is that a poodle? I so love poodles. I recently posted those flowers that look like bells. I love them too. Good luck with them.


  3. Beautiful Flowers! Hope your day is getting Sunny!
    Hugs, Lisa
