Good bye city life! Our family designed and built an industrial but old fashioned farmhouse on nine acres. Now we are building our homestead ~ or is it building us? Grab your boots and join us on our journey to country living.

Friday Flowers


The scorching heat hasn't taken it's toll on the flowers quite yet,
at least not all of them.  Watering at sunset every night is helping.  It also helps to choose varieties that can take "Oklahoma full sun".  That's different than regular full sun.


This bed is my favorite this year ~
Hot pink Knockout Rosebushes
Purple Coneflower
Russian Sage
Lilies
Iris
May Night Salvia
Purple Heart
& Periwinkles



I finally have some Daisies in the garden.  This is the second variety that I have tried.


 The Cut & Come Again Zinnias are really growing.
Next year, I am hoping the whole bed is filled with these.


And my favorite this week ~
a gorgeous pink Gladiolus

  2. Pink Glads! How beautiful! We have those miserable hot summers, too, in SC (this weekend's temps will be 104ish...ugh!) where full sun does a number on everything!
