Love my summer flowers....

"Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our life bloom.........Marcel Proust

I love to plant flowers when the spring weather hits. I usually plant impatients, petunia waves, geraniums and zinias. But I will admit I start getting tired of watering and taking care of them around this time of the year. Brad's pretty good about taking over for me though. He enjoys yard work and the flowers and plants, (but to listen to him he hates it). These are some of my Zinias. They have really been pretty this year.

We've got a busy weekend planned. Brant and Shelly bought a new home, so we will be moving them this weekend. Baley works Saturday, so Miss Sammi will be with me to help. And my nephew Dylan Joe turns the big 16 this weekend................whoo hoo...............That's going to be so handy. He now takes over as the errand boy......(get this, get that). He's a really neat kid. He reminds me so much of my dad.

Gotta go....Have a good evening.

WOW! Your flowers are gorgeous! I basically suck at growing things - except kids for some reason :-) I get gang busters about planting stuff and then pretty much forget it exists until my Mom says "Are you ever gonna water whatever that was?" I'll just stick to pictures and scrapping ...oh yeah, and eating! Glad to hear your surgery went well and things are getting back to normal!
