Planting Glass Flowers

The weather hasn't permitted much gardening the last two days, but this afternoon I was able to catch some sun showers between the rain showers to get our glass flowers planted in the garden. 


 The tulips are about done here and it will be a while before the roses bloom, so the added color will be nice in the interim. 

 Our one purchased, hand blown flower is the yellow/orange one here. 



 We have a few towers too. 



 I can see in these photos that I might need to make a few adjustments to balance the groupings a bit better. 








 This clump of Princess Irene parrot tulips are about the last of the tulip shop.
There are a few more glass flowers scattered here and there, but you get the idea. We have lots. We are at least temporarily out of the glass flower making business, unless we get a request.

  1. I fluctuate between wanting to make a bunch of those glass flowers and being sad that so many antique dishes are being re-purposed. If I had a better yard to use them in, I'd probably give into the urge to make a few. Yours are so beautiful. I have not seen the "stop light" yet. Very clever.

  5. Beautiful! We were shopping for flowers for the garden when the storm hit us this afternoon. We came home drenched and have put off planting until tomorrow. We're trying to catch up to the weeds after being gone for a month.

  6. With our crazy storms off the water it would not take long before all my flowers of the glass variety would be pummeled. You have an amazing collection.

  9. Every time I see your glass flowers I think "I think I could do that." Maybe this year I will. Really liked the gold and orange one but they all add pizzazz to your garden.

  11. Your glass flowers are phenomenal. Maybe I should try these. The deer and rabbits would leave them alone.

  14. Your flowers and towers are gorgeous as always. The best part of planting these is that you don't need to worry about what kind of soil they like or if they'll get enough sun. I left mine out this winter and they need a good washing.

  15. I'm always so amazed at your glass flowers. I will have to send a link to this post to my sister-in-law who was blown away by the flowers I showed her before.
