We just got home from a very nice vacation. It was so much fun. We go on a family trip each year all together. With having firefighters and nurses in our family there is always someone missing at the holidays with working. So this vacation is always a special one since we can all be together as a family. Getting everyone's schedules to match is always an issue so this time with us all together is such a blessing to have.
We came back from beautiful sunny Florida and Fun Fun Fun Disney. I wanted to show you just in the 10 days we were gone how much my flowers have tripled in size.
I guess the cooler temps and all the rain was good for them. Not to mention the miracle grow I doused them with before we left!!!!!!!!!
|The summer house is in full bloom.|
|My bike flowers are starting to really fill in nicely in the baskets.|
|All my pretties on the porch are doing really great.|
|The bag on the old door on my front door is loving where I hung it. It has tripled in size. It loves the late afternoon sun.|
|Remember the chippy old barn door table. The flowers on there are doing really good. I love love love that blue chippy table so glad I found a home for it in the garden.|
|Since the scare of the impatiens and the mold I did not want to chance it this year in the beds so I went with petunias and they are doing so great and bushing up nicely.|
|Even my cherub is loving her place in the garden this year. My Robin couple love to take their morning bath in the cherub bird bath.|
|My lilac bushes filled in so nicely. I had a lot of flowers on the back of the house but I think with this crazy spring we had they just greened up more than bloomed this year.|
|The flowers I potted on the old ladder filled in so fast. They are already half way down the ladder!!!!|
|It is amazing what some nice temps and miracle grow can do for your flowers. Petunia's are a little more maintenance with having to deadhead them but they give such beautiful color and they love the sun so they are perfect for the deck.|
|I still need to get a plant for the fire truck. Am going to work on that this week.|
|The plant on my table by my chair got so big I cannot even put my drink or magazines on there any more!!!!!|
|It was a beautiful vacation but it was nice to come home. Hope you are all enjoying the nicer weather. We had a little sun poke out today in between showers so I thought I would grab some pictures while the sun was shinning.|
