Quirky Me - Garden of Colors

You didn't think I'd let too many Fridays go by without a little randomness, did you?   I like talking about myself way too much to let that happen.  Ha!

Pansies.  As in the flower.  Because of it's name, it's one of the most maligned biennial plants around.  Actually, I have no idea if that is true or not.  But it sounded good, didn't it?!  I'd love to border my flower garden in pansies.  If I had a flower garden, that is.  Maybe next year.

Going along with the garden theme, I love hostas.  They are easy and look beautiful.  And they proliferate like crazy.

Love, love love this red hot poker plant. Kinda reminds me of the rocket popsicles we ate as kids.  Remember?  They'd look great in the back of a flower garden.  We have some planted around our pool, but they have yet to bloom.  I cannot wait!

Tulips are my absolute favorite flower of all time.  Yes, more than the rose.  More than the carnation.  More than the orchid.  They are romantic, statuesque and vibrant.  If I'd had my wedding ceremony to do all over again, I'd do tulips.

Sigh . . . lavender.  What's not to love?  These were in my bouquet for my wedding.  Love them still.

The cala (calla?) lily is probably my second favorite flower.  I think of them as a more formal than the tulip, but with similar characteristics.  These were in my flower bouquet too.

So, that's my quirky randomness for this Friday.  Hope you enjoyed it.  For more randomness, please visit Under Grace and Over Coffee.

Counting it all joy,
