    Hi everyone I wanted to share some of my flowers from the garden this year with you all. I bought new cushions for the patio that are kind of loud, but they are comfy to sit on.
    Lemonaid anyone?

    Beautiful!
    I don't think your cushion covers are loud! I like them
    Please pass the lemonade!

    Red, I would look at your flowers (and yard, for that matter) anytime. You must spend a lot of time out there, not only caring for your plants, but just sitting and admiring. Beautiful.

    Oh thank you so much! I designed it all myself. It took me a while, but I am happy with it.

    Here it is from the other side, so you can see the walkway curving. It adds a little something extra.

    Oh Red what an amazing garden. It is so pretty. YOu have done a great job there :D Thank You so much for sharing, we like to take the straight edges away from our lawn , it looks more soothingI think.

    It tickles me to hear the way other people talk in other countries. I hope you don't take that the wrong way, it is just so cute, k2n.

    Thanks for all the nice compliments. It sure was a lot of hard work and money, but, I think I finally got it to where I want it.

    I truely wish you girls could come to visit. It would be a quilt bee that everyone would remember.

    I don't mind being cute Red - and I nearly wrote 'cossie' which is English slang for swimming costume - wish I had now, I could have been even cuter! :mrgreen:

    A tall glass of lemonade, please, and come and do my yard! I do not have a green thumb, and plants run away when they see me coming! What a great place to sit and ponder!

    What a beautiful oasis you have created in your yard. Everything is so beautiful. Your flowers are to die for. If I was you I would take my coffee outside every morning. Thanks for sharing your pics
