Two Parties on Sunday

Sundays mean flowers from all over the world and seeing what other people are doing this summer. When I wake up with the start of a migraine, the day is not going to turn out like I planned. So my day today was one of resting at home.
My sweet girl gave up a trip to Estes Park yesterday to help me paint because the sweet Hummel children told me they were feeling left out when the doors were getting new coats (of paint). The drab white walls are going to be Tea Light by Benjamin Moore while the little friends are boxed up so they won't crash into each other while their shelf and wall are being spruced up.
Sarah and I saw this at a tea shop in Arvada and I knew it would be the color for me. We were able to get lots of prep work accomplished, but not a lot of wall space was transformed. This is what I will spend my week doing!
My other party involves the garden.
Summer phlox, David.
Wally's roses are beginning to bloom again. They vacation during July, so I'm glad to see them again.
My one hollyhock that's been chomped on by gigantic grasshoppers. I do like pink flowers of all sorts.
All the petunias need to be trimmed back. Will work on that this week between painting and am hoping the headache doesn't turn into a two or three day ordeal.

I'm planning on a giveaway in my next post, so I hope many of you will visit again later this week.

Many thanks to the hard working friends that host Summer Sundays and Today's Flowers. You may click either on the logo or the underlined link to return to the host blogs. ♥♫

I love the color of your hollyhock! I've planted them twice, and both times they ended up white.

Your flowers are beautiful! We have been having a problem with the grasshoppers...they love my basil this summer. Hopefully after my husband cut back our roses they too will bloom again! Joni

Hi! I love this paint color - we use Benjamin Moore paints for all of our house projects, both inside and out. I think they have the best colors!! Your pink flowers are lovely also, I didn't know about the 'Today's Flower' blog - it looks wonderful. Thanks for sharing! Ciao,bella~!

I have two gallons of paint, ready to be opened and rolled on the wall. I should get started, but I'm feeling rather lazy about it. Where is the tea shop in ARvada?

Al said...

That's a beautiful garden. I can never get mine to look like that.

Hi Marilyn,
Thanks for stopping by for tea. That's a pretty shade you've chosen for your walls and I like mostly pink flowers too. Hope you have a lovely week, dear friend.

What lovely flowers you have. I don't really have any at all planted since my landlord prefers cement and I've gotten too poverty stricken with my job loss 18 months ago to even do planters any more! Retirement and my drop of $90,000 in income have not made me happy.

Rebecca said...

Oh girl...I love your flowers. Mine looks simply terrible from Oklahoma heat. I've about given up this year.

I love Wally's Roses...beautiful.

You are entered into my giveaway!

xoRebecca PS; Thank you soooo much for the sweet compliments on the chair makeover. Harder than I thought it would be... No, not hard...just tedious trying to figure out what was best to do! xo~
