It rained off and on all day yesterday, so my outdoor plans were foiled once again. So I headed upstairs to my son's room to strip wallpaper. Between pulling weeds all day the day before, and scraping wallpaper yesterday, my hands can barely type this!

I'm in the middle of several ongoing projects with nothing to show right now. I did wander about my flower beds yesterday evening and took some pictures that I can share.

Someone (a man) once commented on seeing all my flower beds something like "Unless it grows food, I don't see the point." I responded, "Flowers are food for the soul."
Here are a few of my soul feeders in bloom right now.

These pots have filled out nicely since I planted them.

These fill the tummy and the soul!


  1. I love hollyhocks and my youngest piped up when she saw the raspberries, "Yummy! I love those!!"

    Your anecdote at the beginning reminded me of this quote: Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of quiet in a crowded day - like writing a poem or saying a prayer. Anne Morrow Lindbergh

  2. Very beautiful combinations in your pots! men like that probably need to feed their souls a little more,lol! I love all your flowers! Lezlee

  3. The pots are gorgeous! I love the colors!

  4. Hey I found your blog! Even though you didn't write it down right for me. ;) I'm a good detective at any rate. HA!

  5. Hi Deb~~~the colors in your pots are so beautiful!!! LOVE how you put them on your steps.
    Of course, the hollyhocks are my favorites...your yard must be awesome with all these flowers.


Thank you for taking time to leave me a comment. They make my day!
