Flowers at the Art Shed

It's been raining hard on and off for two days and just a few minutes ago the sun came out and I decided I'd better take some pictures....I don't think the pictures do the flowers justice but I had a great surprise which makes it all worth while......I will start with the picture of the surprise...and remember they were so engrossed with eating, that I was just a couple of inches from zoom.....

Aren't they know how I love butterflies and cone flowers....

This is the Art Shed
They are hard to see from this distance, but there are flowers planted in front of those rocks and day lillies on the other side.......when they get larger I will take another picture....
These are the flowers I just planated behind the rocks....I am afraid the rain took it's toll...

This is a view from the porch of the shed........flower garden and fire pit

Sometime, I will write the history of this place and how it came to be ours
but in the meantime I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Hugs and Blessings,

  4. Ah Nancy, perfect picture for your banner!!
    Purple Coneflowers are one of my all time favorites. I love mixing them with Black-eyed Susans and other wildflowers! The butterflies are beautiful.

    The garden area looks like a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the marvelous views. I really would like to hear more about it.

  5. Oh my goodness Nancy! The flower with the butterflies is so amazing! I do believe God orchestrated that special moment just for you. Thank you for sharing it with us. I love your cornflowers. My ftr-in-law just gave me a start from his cornflower plants. Hope they bloom for me. Your cabin looks like a comfy and peaceful place to be and your flower addition is the perfect touch.

  6. Oh and you should enter that beautiful photo in a photo contest. It really looks like a professional shot.

  7. Nancy, My first time here and I must say "what a blessing you are" I read back through your blog and now I feel like I know you a bit. It is always good to find another sister in the Lord. I would love to hear the "history" you talked about. We have a gray cat just like Simon, only it's a she, her name is Salu.I put you on my favorites list and I will be back.
    Be Blessed
