Sweet peas don't like the heat, but enough persist to make small bouquets. The lilies are going much too fast. :-(
The dahlias are coming on strong.
A few giant marigolds brighten the arrangement.
Zinnias are so bright and wonderful.
So what do I do with all of this bounty of beauty?
The zinnias and the lily are in the powder room.
And a little bunch sits on the display cabinet by Great Grandma's clock and the little July figurine by Josef that my sister gave me as a birthday gift several years ago.
The dahlias go on the coffee table in the family room.
And the purple dahlia jug sits on the kitchen counter.
Most of the arrangements will last four or five days, and then I'll get to do it all over again.
