My Happy Flower

They say its a heat wave.
A tropical heat wave.
Right now the heat wave is killing me here.
Even my outside plants are dying.

Good afternoon sweet friends.
Hope you all are enjoying this first
August weekend.
I love the month of August,
because that is when my 
"Happy Flowers"

Growing up on both of my grandparents farms
sunflowers were everywhere.

I have always called them my happy flower.
They grow tall and strong and just bring 
a smile to my face.
How about you?

I always manage to bring them out for my 
Autumn decor.
With my kitties, I do not bring in real plants,
so I use artificial sunflowers and other flowers.
they still make me 

Even my feathered friends must have known
I love this flower.
They not only brought me one volunteer...

But a second one too!
I am so thrilled and cannot wait until these
happy flowers bloom outside.
See my scorched honeysuckle leaves.

Do you have a flower that makes you smile?

Happy Flower Blessings To All!


  1. This is way too hot for me too, Janice...I hate temps in the upper 80's and 90's....can't do a darn thing weeds love it however! Looking forward to seeing you at the show in Sept!

  2. Janice~ The heat wave thing can be from June to the end of September here in Florida unless we get afternoon rains. There have been long stretches of super hot and dry days in July and finally we are now getting some nice rains. Everything was dreadfully dry and drooping!

    How well I understand about fresh flowers and kitties. My kitty thinks all plants indoors are for him to play with and chew!

  3. Can't wait for Fall Janice...yes, sure are a happy flower, love them too!!!! Blessings Francine.

  4. Beautiful fresh flowers!
