I know, I owe you dinner–or a description of dinner, complete with info on how you can get it, too. But I’ve decided that on Fridays I should say it with flowers. These live at the edge of my patio. The one in front is lavender–I bought it at Lavender Ridge Farm on my Memorial Day adventure. My track record with lavender is not very good, so I thought I’d better show it off while it’s still alive.
And yes, my patio walls really are that frightening color. If you think that’s bright, you should have seen it the morning after we painted it. See, it was dark when we got done so we couldn’t really appreciate the, um, depth of color. The next morning I got up, opened the blinds, and dang near went blind. It was school bus yellow at the time and the glare off the morning sun…ouch. I’ve toned it down since, believe it or not. I’m thinking of going a little paler when I get the house painted–I must be mellowing–but the jury’s still out on that.
So that’s all, really. Thought I’d share some of my favorite flowers. Happy Friday!
