Cielo's Garden Party

Cielo from House In The Roses is having a party today and everyone is invited. You don't have to ask me twice to go to a party, I'm there anytime. This is a special garden party and while I don't have much of a garden, I thought I would share a few photos. Go to Cielo's blog and see who has come to the party.

I really like how this photo of my flowers turned out. I used my macro setting on my camera and the flowers just look so vibrant and pretty
Okay, this is not really part of a garden but it does sit outside. It is my birdhouses with a few gerber daisies. I love these little birdhouses that sit right outside my patio door, they just look so cheerful and nice.
For some reason this photo looks washed out. This really is a pretty little area in my front yard with the little girl and bunny statue.
And this photo is hard to see also but these flowers are sitting in a very old rocking chair that my sweetie's Grandfather made many years ago. I love this little old chair.
And this photo..................Okay just kidding. This photo is actually at our Krohn Conservatory here in Cincinnati. I only wish I had a garden clock like this. LOL Happy First Day of Summer!! The fireflies are out,the pools are opened, kids are playing outside, we are grilling out, eating watermelon and peaches and corn on the cob, ice cream cones, sitting on the deck enjoying that first cup of morning coffee..........gardens are another thing to love about this time of year. I wish summer would never end.

It was so nice to meet you and visit your garden. And I adore that photo on your sidebar of Grandma and Maddie's toes at the beach. ~ Miles of Smiles ~ Lynn

Hi, I am part of Cielo Garden Party so I thought I would come by and see you. Lovely pictures and that picture of that clock made out of flowers from the Conservatory is really!
I also peeked at your shower pictures, very nice favors and the cupcakes look yummy!
Thanks for having me!
Love, Ann

How nice! A garden party!
I am sure you enjoyed it!
Now it is midsummer, and tomorrow some of us who live here on my place, comes together for a grillparty..Everyone brings with them what they like to eat, and put it on the grill.
Later on we have coffee and cakes. It is very socially.
The weather seems not to be so good.
But we make the grilling outside, and eat the food inside in case of rain.

Your flowers are so pretty as are the little ones!

Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Have a blessed day.
