Summer Garden

Hello everyone, It is a beautiful sunny day here today 
 and I am enjoying a few fresh flowers in my garden walk this morning.  
Zinnias seem t be blooming like crazy in their bright summer colors.   Hummingbirds love the bright colors but I can't seem to catch one still long enough to snap a picture.  Zinnias are always a staple in my garden for it is the memory of my grandmother's garden full of zinnias against her white picket fence,  that I treasure.

Ever wonder what to do with all those slivers of soap leftover besides just 
throwing them away?  I slip thin slivers 
into an old worn sock , tie a knot and then 
tie it to my water spigot outside. It is a convenient
way of washing hands after gardening. 
It is always nice to have a place to sit and enjoy the sounds of the water fountain.  

"I like to think of nature as an unlimited radio station 
through which God speaks to us every hour,
 if we will only  tune in."  _George Washington Carver
Kind hearts are the gardens. 
Kind thoughts are the roots.
Kind words are the flowers.
Kind deeds are the fruit.
Take care of the gardens, 
and keep them from weeds.
Fill, fill them with flowers, 
kind words and kind deeds.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Hydrangeas bloom and are perfect for cut flowers ..

Just a few photos from my patio

and visiting  with a few friends.

Coming in the house I put a few roses by the kitchen sink. 
I hope you are enjoying these beautiful summer days too!  

blessings always,
