Summer Time Flowers


Mid-June in zone 5/6, Upstate NY. I say zone 5/6, because while we're actually in zone 5,living 5 miles from Lake Ontario keeps zone 6 plants coming back in the spring.  Had fun adding some color this year by spray painting old pots.

Also did some repurposing of an old chair and other household items as pot/potholders.

    Thank you everyone for the nice comments! It was a lot of fun adding color with a little spray paint, some dollar store items, and a few repurposed things that had been hanging around in the barn. This is my first spring/summer in 5 years not working most waking hours in a garden center and I've been enjoying every minute of it :-)
