Hearts and Flowers

The first bloom on my endless summer hydrangea .  A sight to behold.

The rose mallow will bloom for a few weeks, each day opening new blooms in the softest pink.
My favorite pot this year.  The pink is anything soft, WOW!  I love to imagine how the pot will look as things fill in and  love when my vision for one comes to fruition.
 Powerfully pink portulaca.  Say that three times fast!
 The blue saliva...I mean white saliva.  This one spike is pure white.
Makes me so happy, it is the little things in life, agree?
Took a photo of the heart from dear Melanie.  I like it so much and it looks great in my kitchen.
 This little collection has exploded.  My SIL has added the board with the heart cut out and I just found the wood burned paddle, again with a heart.
Yes hearts and flowers, defined as "extreme sentimentality."  That's me to a tee.

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your friendship and kind comments. Enjoy this beautiful day.

Oh pretty flowers. I love the one with the dish as well. It's fun to put little treasures with the flowers. I love the heart from Melanie. Hugs

For a minute I thought I was looking at my own post when I saw the picture of your hydrangea appear on my blogger dashboard. I'm in the process of creating a post about, you guessed it, MY hydrangeas! They started blooming a few days ago and I've already created a post about them (not the last I'm sure...). I love what you did with the galvanized tub and the plate as an addition. You are very creative! And I think I've started a cutting board collection, too (shh don't tell my husband!) Have a great week!

Hello my dear friend...I'm glad you like that little glass heart! It looks pretty hanging in your kitchen. Your planters are so pretty...I love how you design them with plates and other "pretties" tucked in. I also really like your collection of wooden cutting boards and spoons, etc. in the white box. I have a similar white box that I have in my donate pile...hmm, maybe I should go rescue it and play with it. See what you've started! ;-) I hope you're having a good's finally a bit sunny and cool. {{hugs}}

Your planters looks so pretty! I'll about to head our and add a planter to one of my now! I like you wooden cutting boards and I have several myself, always on the lookout for more. It's actually not rained for about 7 hours, I think it's a record. Have a great day!

All sweetness Penny . . .
Love your galvanized container and your creative flowered platter and flower additions.
It will be fun to watch it thrive and grow . . .
Happy pink flower days!
