FLAUNT YOUR FLOWERS

For the first time, I'm going to participate in Tootsie's "Flaunt My Flowers" party. I've always been so intimidated by her beautiful gardens; but, right now my front garden looks pretty good thanks to my husbands attention to it. The Blue Mist Spirea has just started to bloom - the smell of it and the alyssum is delicious. The Monarch butterflies are swarming around evidently liking the smell and taste, as well.


The white daisy-like flower is actually a Profusion Zinnia, one of our favorites. There is a glimpse of the pink Profusion Zinnia in the lower left corner.

Please head on over to Tootsie Time to check out all of those participating in showing off their flowers. If you haven't been to Tootsie's blog before, you are in for a treat. Under 'green thumb' in the dictionary, it says "Tootsie"!

This proves again that a hard working man can do wonders for blooms--either in the yard or in your cheeks!
