Oh no! The cute little flowers that Lady Bug and I planted a few weeks ago are taking a turn for worse. The poor little buds are starting to droop pretty bad. I’m not sure what is causing them to fall like they are. Perhaps it’s the heat that is getting to them.
I think I’ll try moving them out of her windowsill and placing them on her dresser where it is cooler. Hopefully this helps the little plants and we can save them. Lady Bug will be crushed if they wither and die.
If anyone has any suggestions to save these plants please leave your comments and we’ll try them out an let you know how it goes. We really appreciate your help.
Appreciating my surroundings is something I’ve always been taught to do. Sometimes I like to take a drive around the country just to look and see what has popped up around me. Occasionally, I’ll see clusters of new homes being built or even new shopping centers. The Boca Raton Architects have really produced some lovely buildings.
Driving through new neighborhoods and looking at the new homes gives me ideas of ways to add special touches to my home. Sometimes I might see some neat landscaping out front. Other times, my eye might be caught by large arch windows. Most recently, I was excited by a quaint little breeze way at the entrance to a home. It was a about a ten foot arch with lattice work. Hanging from the lattice was ivy and some beautiful pink and purple flowers.
I wish I had a grand entrance at the front of my home for something like this. The lattice work was breath taking. I suppose I could always add something similar to the backyard and patio, but I really thought it was stunning in the front yard.
Decorating with fresh flowers is an easy way to brighten up any room. I like to put small bouquets of flowers in old antique style vases that I’ve collected from thrift stores and flea markets. I love to have a few flowers next to my bed on my night stand so they are the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning. I scatter the flowers around my houses in places like the entry way, living room, and dining room. No matter where I put the flowers, they always bring a smile to my face when I see them when I walk in to the room.
