Small Bouquets

Hello everyone,

I hope you will enjoy a small bouquet of flowers. I picked these dahlias from our garden yesterday and I had to take a few photos of them.

aren't they lovely?

and now a few collages

these bouquets are from earlier in the summer

I love to have a small bouquet on the windowsill in our kitchen

oh! this is starting to make me miss my peonies

This is how I enjoy my garden in winter-I am thankful for my digital camera and my computer that stores thousands of my photos.

This little woodland fairy is our little 4 year old granddaughter Jessica - doesn't she make a charming little fairy?

I hope I don't have too many repeats on here today but I have just spent 7 hours driving to Halifax.We had one dead battery over there and a flat tire on the way home then I had a quick visit to my Mom - so now I am beat! I am now off for a long soak in a hot tub but I hope to do something a little more creative soon.

Thank you for visiting,

Your little woodland fairy is just beautiful. Aren't pictures wonderful. Yours certainly are and I enjoy them.
Sorry to hear about your flat tire and battery. Some days are like that aren't they? Hope your soak in the tub restored you.

I'd like to try some dahlias in next year's garden.

I hope your Mom is ok Carolyn - sorry to hear about the troubles on the trip. Hope your long soak and a good night's sleep made you feel better.

Carolyn, your flowers are so pretty! I especially love the peonies! Pity one has to live all winter without them. Have a wonderful day.

Your flowers are so beautiful;here in Sudbury our flowers are in the past. So your pictures bring back summer to my eyes.

I could never get enough of these beautiful bouquets. Your little faerie is the cutest thing ever.

Your flowers are beautiful and your fairy is the best!

My Dalia's were already froze once so they've been dug up and sent to bed for the winter!
I'm completely jealous (in a good way) that you still have beautiful flowers!
