Happy Monday!

Good Monday morning to you all. Sharing some quick pics this morning as the 'list' awaits and it is a long one this week. My climbling rose is finally doing something after 2 yrs., thank you! In the back ground is a vintage deck chair we found at a garage sale Sat. for....$1.00 ! !



Enjoying the Peony before they are all gone. The bushes were groaning with the weight of them all so they got a good haircut yesterday.




This is one from a big bowl indoors, that I am offering to make it an official "Flowers in the House" that Jane is hosting again, "Hi, Jane!" If you have some flowers in your house right now, why not grab your camera and share over here.



My big window box is doing well and I think from now on I will use the geraniums like these instead of the petunias that I have in the front...much less persnickety I'm thinking.



Another find at that same garage sale, an old time themometer that mounts on the window frame and will be fun to check come winter....never mind that we have an indoor/outdoor digital weather station, it just isn't the same, now is it.

I am wishing you all a wonderful, good start to a week of new beginnings.

Love it all, the big bowl of peonies, the climbing rose and oh, yeah, that chair.

Offering 2.00 plus shipping...think it over, you're doubling your money.

Well, your roses certainly have made quite a show of it! How nice that you still have peonies and all of your flowers are looking gorgeous!

I planted a Calla Lily 3 years ago and it bloomed one bloom for the first time the other day. Then the Engineer accidentally whacked it with the mower!

Have a wonderful day and good luck with your list!

I am so jealous of folks who grow roses. I just don't have the green thumb for them. Your grass looks so green; you must be getting good rain. I love that chair. I can see myself sitting there with a good magazine and a refreshing glass of "something"!! Debi

Your flowers are fabulous, and so are the finds! I have a similar thermometer (only it doesn't wall~mount) in my posy filled wash basin. :)

Blessings, Debbie

Your roses, peonies and geraniums are just gorgeous! Every year I mix geraniums and petunias (and other plants) in my pots to enjoy the best of both plants. But this year the geraniums are hardly blooming. Not sure why.

Life in Rehab said...

Peonies! Okay, I really miss those. And that chair you found- if all it's good for is staging, you got a steal!

The Monkey Flower Group said...

I want to jump into that pile of peonies! Gorgeous!

Leigh said...

Peonies bring back such great memories of my grandmothers garden. Those, hollyhocks, pansies, and red poppies. I agree about the thermometers. I need a couple of the old-fashioned kind myself. :)

I'm so jealous of your flower box and the peonies!
They are so wonderful! :) I love the thermometer stuck in there.

Enjoy!

i am always checking my outdoor thermometer. especially to check farenheit to celcius cuz you southerners use imperial. when i see a temp on someones blog, i go check to see their temp.

Your window boxes are gorgeous,Sherri! I'm never satisfied with mines, they are never so full and lush...do you have a secret?
