More Flowers

I was able to spend some time outside before it rained today. I planted a few more flowers to add some more color and pizazz to the area out by our garage. A couple of years ago I planted flowers in an old washtub that used to be my Great-grandpa and grandma Clapp's. Several people complimented us on it and even asked when we were going to do flowers like that again. So, this I dug out the old washtub once again this year and got to work.

The result:

I'm not sure how these flowers are going to do here. I tried to get flowers that do well in the sun, but it was slim pickin's at the store. I also wasn't willing to spend an outrageous amount of money, so that kind of hindered me a little. Overall, I am pleased with it. I am so thankful the Lord sent some rain to us. Our garden and flowers needed it bad. He also took care of one of the items on my to-do list!!!

I've also been busy on a special project this week. Hopefully there will be a post about that within the next few days.

I am amazed at all the flower gardens up in IL. Mostly around GA the focus is veggies - but that might be because so many flowers died in April to frost.

I like the washtub. (I WANT the washtub.) What a nice keepsake. Can't wait to hear about your "special project."
