Goodbye Summer Flower Garden

It is hard to believe that summer is almost over.  You would not know that by the still very hot temperatures during the day, but the nights have cooled off quite a bit already.
The calendar may not be ready for the end of summer, but Mother Nature rules, and my garden is surely responding accordingly.
Unfortunately a lot of my vegetables and flowers are done for the season, so today I will share few pictures of the ones still thriving.

September 11th – Remembrance Day

My thoughts and prayers are with all the people left behind, and the souls of the ones perished on that sad day of September 11th, 2001.

My heart is aching for my second cousin and his family, as they lost their oldest son that day, Scott Daniel Bart, who was working in the North Tower.

Christening Party Decorations

I love crafts and appreciate other people’s craft talents.
Recently I was attending a Christening party for a little girl, and just adored all the decorations created by her Mom.
She used flowers from her mother’s garden, mason jars for vases, burlap for table runners and vase decoration.
She purchased crape paper flowers and burlap banners with stamped letters, to add some finishing touches and to pull it all together nicely.

Bridal Shower – Fun Decorations and Games

Once again I was honored to attend a Bridal Shower which was very elegant and fun, hosted by the Mother of the Bride.
It took place at the Trump National Golf Club in New Jersey. The venue and the view was beautiful.
The Bride To Be loves flowers used in Ukrainian wreath arrangements, such as Poppies, Sunflowers, Daisies and Cornflowers, hence these were utilized in the decor for her Bridal Shower.

My July Beauties

July is hot…and sometimes with heavy rains which just run off and leave the soil dry again. 
I water my garden couple of times per week just to keep my plants somewhat hydrated.  
Today I will share some of the currently blooming flowers, which I just adore visiting every morning to check on the new ones opening up.
It makes my day the coffee does for others….:-)
