So beautiful. Nature always gives me that 'pick me up'. No artist can capture such beauty.

It is probably the most colour I have had this year Sylvie with the exception of the purple Phlox when it was in full bloom...You must have noticed what a disaster the garden was when you was here

I know exactly where that is growing too. Wonderful! I love them. They can take over my flowerbed too but I only have a few.

Oh ! They weren't ALL weeds. Just some. And it doesn't matter. If you think it's pretty then it's all good! Am I forgiven now?

Good! 'Cause I'm wet and miserable from being outside cutting the floor out for the kitty shed and I have to shower so I don't scare customers away at work this afternoon. Working till 8!
Sorry, that was a total threadjack~!

Yep, it's raining. I so wanted to get that floor down today so all I have left was a couple of shelves. But it started coming down too hard to use the saw outside. And hubby's shop is locked.
I don't know why they don't put the kids on late shifts. But they want some "mature" people there so the kids tow the line. If they only knew.
Anyway, enough threadjacking. Back to your wonderful false sunflowers........

lovely, sunny flowers!

Our flowers froze out a couple of nights ago--but the trees are finally beginning to put on a show!
