The Gift of Summer Flowers

 July is a big month for my flowers out in the garden beds.
I went out in the morning and cut these for my floral centerpiece.

 Floral melamine plates, stemware and napkin rings- Pier 1.  Milky white swirl glass plates T.J.Maxx.  Yellow placemats Kohl's.  Flatware Horchow.  Napkins from a local boutique shop.

Cast of characters...Cone Flowers, Day Lilies, Butterfly Weed, Shasta Daisies and Veronica!

We'll pretend we're sitting outside on a large covered porch at a lovely 
white wicker dining set....

The gift of my own summer flowers brings happiness to me!

How about an afternoon lunch...

Ahh... let's pour the wine and dine!
