Flowers in my Garden

Today I finally have a day off from work. I did finish up the order I needed to do and must send it out today. I have started working on some Christmas crafts, but I need to put my nose to the grindstone. However, there are towels to wash,sheets to fold, bathrooms to clean, floors to dust, and a foyer to paint. Ok, well you get the picture. I won't get it all done, but I'd like to make a dent. I also need to go to the bank, sooo while I'm out I might as well hit the thrift store, right?

After coming home from work last evening I decided to go check the storm damage to my flowers. To my surprise they with stood the high winds and hail. I snapped a few pics becuase I thought the colors were just beautiful. Some of them I know the names of others I don't because I didn't plant them. LOL. Anyway, enjoy... Oh yeah, don't mind the weeds I think they're nice don't you ;-) They grow so well in my soil I tell you.



This is lavendar... I need to learn how to harvest and dry it...


All of these were growing in a flower bed out by the road that hubby and I tore out. We replanted most of the these because I couldn't stand to just throw them away.

These are a deep red...


Very light pink...


Bright orange...

Very pretty, I would like to grow and dry lavender too.

Last night we had a terrible storm, thought it was a hurricane. My garden doesn't look to good now.
