Day 8 – Flower Power

Our yard is not bursting with color yet, but we do have perfect little blossoms popping up here and there. For day eight of my June ‘Accentuate the Positive’ challenge, I have chosen to share a few of my favourite little buds.

Violet and pink verbena
Dan’s favourite – multi-colour portulaca
Petunias by the pond.
More Petunias by the pond.
I love these wild marigolds! πŸ’ž
And more Petunias by the pond!
Nameless gnome guarding our new marigolds.
This is a perennial that we have had for years. The cutest puff of color when it is fully in bloom.
Not blooming yet, but these Coral Bells add color to our front yard. 😊
My sister and I used to help my great uncle pick the blossoms off of his chives. I always thought it was such a pity. They are so pretty!

Spring is such a great time of year! Everytime we go outside there is a new treasure to be found. πŸ€—

Eight days down, twenty two to go. Have a lovely day and I hope to see you tomorrow! 🌞

  1. This sounds like such an awesome challenge! I love flowers. I don’t have a garden and no green thumb either, so I don’t think I can grow flowers on my balcony. That being said, I love to smell them when I come by them somewhere else.

  2. Thank you! If you were close enough, you would be welcome to come by and smell our flowers anytime. (I would give my husband a heads up). I am enjoying my challenge. I think people need to up their mindset if we are really going to come out the other side of this pandemic. I don’t know if my little challenge will really help anyone else – but it is helping me to make the effort. 😊
