This is the time of the year when I really enjoy the few flowers we have growing in our yard. It takes this long for our blooms to fill out and really show their beauty.

Cutting a few to bring inside brightens my days.

Plopping a few daisies into a vase just brings sunshine inside the house.

Even though they don’t last long inside, I love to clip a few flowering branches from our Crepe Myrtles and stuff them into a pitcher.

Delicate roses in a teapot make me happy.

Sometimes, I don’t even cut the flowers. I bring the entire pot inside.  I used this potted Mandevilla  on a table for a dessert meeting in our home.  I’ll share the rest of that table later.

Next week, I’ll be joining some fabulous blogs for a week-long party.  So many bloggers are having a wonderful time at the Haven Bloggers’  Conference in Atlanta.  Some of us who aren’t able to attend, are having a Getting Creative at Home party, posting our favorite past projects.  You won’t want to miss these, so be sure to check back Monday for links.

This is a great opportunity to see some great projects, browse new blogs and make some new blog friends. It's almost like being a part of the Haven Conference.  Plus, it's FREE! 
Start here on Monday to see the first five great blogs and keep following all week.  On Monday, August 12, we'll post a round-up of all the great projects for you to see on one page.
Are your days brightened by bringing summer flowers into the house?  Wishing you flower-brightened days. Thank you for visiting.

Are you enjoying all the blooms as much as I am?  Each day, when I come home from work, I love to go into the yard and see what plants have new blooms on them.
