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.
Ketchup and Mustard
Ketchup and Mustard by Weeks Roses always makes me think of summer time and pic-nics!
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.
Mr. Lincoln is one of the country's all time favorite roses. If you live in Illinois, its simply a must have.
Everyone loves the sweet and delicate Bleeding Heart.
Petunias are easy to grow and do come in Red | White and Blue colors!
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"!
This is a rarely seen Sphinx moth I captured last week-end on the verbena! So be prepared to see beautiful flying insects at your 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.
Have a Happy and Save Fourth of July! Say it in Flowers!
Just add Food, Pets, Beverages and we have a real celebration!
