Flowers, Flowers Everywhere!

Everyone loves flowers...

even Kramer:).

Flowers are beautiful everywhere, even on this beautiful cider pitcher, a gift from my father and his wife:).

I don't think I will use it for cider-perhaps for a lovely flower arrangement instead.

The artist even painted the bottom. It's dated 1906.

The flowers in the gardens are blooming in bursts of glorious colors.



Soon the yellow roses will surround the fountain in delicate blooms.

Look what I did! Another place to relax and enjoy God's spendor.

These busy little cherubs are nestled amongst the gardenias.

This little cherub sits upon an old iron chair taking in the garden beauty.

A freshly painted fence gleams from beneath the soft purple blooms.

Take the time to enjoy the beauty that surrounds you:).
Have a blessed day!

Absolutely refreshing. I am on my way to art class but had to stop, I knew you had something inspiring on here. I have a question for you? I will post another item my dad gave me and I think he called it a collectible. It is cranberry pitcher with 6 glasses with thumbprint on it. What is the difference in antique and collectible?

Hi Kim,
Another lovely stroll through your garden. I so love them. That cider pitcher is beautiful and the painting on the bottom makes it all the more special, don't you think?
Smiles,
June

Beautiful, I like that terra cotta colored rose, kind of a sunset red color.

Your garden looks like Paradise.
