Last Year's Flowers

Allow me to dream a little,please.You are welcome to join me as I step back into the gardens with pictures taken last summer.
I really need to see something bright and cheery,so this is the easiest way that I know of.


As I sat on my deck,I noticed the Geraniums framed by the lattice and thought they looked pretty.


You know me,I enjoy going to the English Gardens in Winnipeg.This is where I can find lots of flowers and often quite a few birds.For today,I will choose to only look at the flowers.
Isn't this a beauty? 


I can't seem to grow Zinnias that look great,but they sure know how to grow them in these gardens.


Of course,what would a floral post be without roses.This one is so bright.


I'm not the only one who enjoys the flowers.This little butterfly seems to like them as well.

I hope you enjoyed walking through the flower garden with me.I know I did,and your company made it all that much better.Let's do it again sometime soon.


Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today;
because if you enjoy it today,you can do it again tomorrow.

  8. Gorgeous, Ruth.. Flowers mean so much to me any time of year ---but they are especially beautiful right now, as we anxiously await Spring and some color here. We have had a few spring-like days here --but they say that winter and freezing temperatures are coming back. SO???? We still are not ready for spring here obviously.. Oh Well.. I'll just enjoy your gorgeous flowers.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  9. How beautiful! this is what I miss about winter the most. The rose is almost neon, and the last picture...I love your editing on it, it looks almost Victorian.

  15. Your flowers are beautiful, Ruth! The second photo is my favorite. It is so hard to be without flowers all winter long. I'm so looking forward to having them grow in my garden and pots again.

  16. Ruth, such lovely images! You'll soon be enjoying natures full bloom for real! We have a bunch of crocus's in bloom and they are very pretty! I love that first blush of Spring. Everything else seems to be right on the cusp of bursting into green!
    Hope your having a great Sunday!

  18. Oh that second flower is just stunning. All I see is snow and ice outside my window, so a trip back to summer is such a treat. Thank you.

  19. Long ago, I used to dry geraniums and rose petals for a very pleasant fragrant sachet!!

    My dad used to have zinnas that were saucer sized...I swear...but I used to tell him it's 'cause he spit tobacco juice on them when he was out working with them. My mom wouldn't allow him to chew tobacco indoors so he'd go outside. That may be the secret. Are you for chewing and spitting anytime soon? I didn't think so. LOL

  20. After rowing through muddy waters and gators, this is a sight for sore eyes! Love all the color and promise of spring. Zinnias are some of my favorite and so hardy. I need to get some in the ground this year. Thanks for reminding me!

  24. Hi Ruth, The photos are great and I'm sure you'll be taking some this year just as good if not better. Sure like that quote ... "Never put off till tomorrow ..." Thought about you on my recent travels when I met a gentleman from Edmonton ... very kind and interesting. John
