A Fourth of July Celebration in Flowers


When I think of the 4th of July I think of pic-nics! Don't you? And being outside in the garden with the kids I thought it would be fun to celebrate the fourth of July with you with the flowers in colors that dazzle you while you celebrate the occasion.

This is John F. Kennedy. Our hearts turn to patriotism on the 4th of July and this rose is a beautiful reminder of those who served our country and gave their lives in service.

Doesn't this just look like fireworks to you?! So this is our flower fireworks display! This is from a garden in Minneapolis, MN when I toured gardens as a speaker for the Twin Cities Rose Club in Minneapolis.

No celebration is complete without 'the relatives' so here is hefty ole 'Uncle Joe' known to have the most petals of any rose, sweet and hefty, no garden party is complete without 'Uncle Joe"!
There's always flying 'guests' at the party!

Your party has lots of flare when you spice it up with your colorful red | white and blue container gardens. I planted these before I was going to P. Allen Smith's Moss Mountain Farm for his annual speaker get together and I did use Organic Soil that they sent me and asked that I use it for a competition.

    The 4th of July is one of the most celebrated occasions for all Americans. Even after centuries it continues to be the most patriotic holidays in the US. And yes, for us it is more of a day which is a holiday meant for picnics and celebrations. Very nice suggestions, thank you for posting such beautiful pics.
