Fresh Flowers....


One of my favorite things about summer is having fresh flowers in my house! 

 I know I can buy them all year, but the availability is so amazing during the summer...



....and I love to add flowers from my yard with those I purchase...


The other day I found these orange flowers growing on the side of the road, beside Queen Anne Lace:


Do you know what they are called? 

UPDATE: These are Milkweed !!!

They are so bright and vibrant and I love them, but can't find them anywhere else!

  1. Patti, those look like pants blooms but I can't see the leaves so I'm not certain. Glad you're able to run out & catch some blooms in between the rains! Love those vibrant colors.

  2. One item we consider a staple...all year round. Yet, there is nothing like the bouquet coming from someone's hand grown labor!-Laurel

  4. Patti, I think those blooms might be milkweed. Monarch butterflies feast on them! I love your pretty watercolor "paintings"! The colors are all gorgeous. You should print these and frame them.

  7. I don't know what those cute orange flowers are but I think they might be what I saw in a field getting off the expressway! They were everywhere and I wanted to go dig them up!
