Fantasy ~


I don't have a flower garden here at the SUMMER HOUSE.....yet.
I am hoping to do a little container gardening a little later in the season.
We are still having fairly cool nights...no where near freezing ...
but cool enuf to make plants droop...and drop leaves...

So until the right time,
I'll share my previous post of
MY FANTASY GARDEN
Why NOT gather market FLOWERS and BLOOMS..?
 

Don't you adore that we can play and pretend and daydream here in Blogland ?
I DO....I JUST LOVE IT...
Actually, I am pretty sure IT'S GOOD FOR THE SOUL !...
So,
I say YES !
to gathering REAL and FAUX flowers around you for
FLOWER COMFORT


THESE MAKE MY HEART SING....


 These are just MAGNIFICENT..

                               *HEAVY sigh....aren't they so beautiful?
How can ANYONE doubt there's a GOD when HE sends us
 something this lovely to look at....???   
 HE sends us the GREATEST gifts,  
ALL THE TIME...


These faux, silk tulips look fabulous....
until they go up beside THE REAL THING !!
:))


Fresh flowers....fresh fruits...
faux flowers...faux fruits...
It matters NOT when they bring you happiness and joy..
and all this beautiful color and texture is definitely
GOOD FOR MY SOUL

oops....I think I used this photo twice but I just love these little faux roses.


YEP..I really am missing digging in the dirt and taking a stroll around SWEET NOTHINGS to admire my blooms . I KNOW this, too, will pass. 

HAPPY GARDENING...
even if it IS with fauxs and....
INSIDE !!
at least, for a little longer.

  1. I love the ideas of gardens and plants. When I get a house, I plan on making gardening family time while my mushy is young enough to enjoy it!!

    Your faux flowers looks so real!!

  2. Yes, this in between time is just right for faux. I will pick up some pansies and plant them for some outside color. They are such happy little flowers that can tolerate the chill, but not the heat. I like how you said that the faux tulips look beautiful until they are placed beside the real thing. Them's pondering words.

  3. Your pictures of flowers are beautiful but that picture of the iced tea... now, that spoke to my heart!

  4. I never really like faux flowers much. As soon as touch one, it's like looking at a lie all the time.

    If only real flowers lasted that long, or more than two months.

  8. The ground here is still a bit too soggy to be out in the garden. I'm ready but the weather isn't. :)

  9. Very pretty photos today BJ. Beautiful tulips... gotta go to Trader Joe's and pick up some. I love seeing herbs grow on a kitchen window sill but every time I've ever tried little fruit flies take up residence!

  11. BJ, I love all your flower photos. I am holding off on planting any more flowers for about a week. We are to have frost the next two mornings. Yikes. It's hard to endure the cold after those nice warm days of spring. I love the tulips. I use real and fake flowers too. I just today put some fake tulips on the dining room table. I should get a shot of those. Blessings, xoxo,Susie

  12. yup, sounds like you definitely need to put your fingers in some dirt and set up some pots and tubs and containers. :)

  13. What a fun post- faux or not? Sometimes it is hard to tell. I am anxious for plants, too, but here we have another month of possible heavy freezing. I am so over winter this year! xo Diana

  15. Wish I could share my real ones with you. Why, I do not know, they have just gone crazy with bloom., I am sure the storms will ruin them to night. I love yours real of not.

  16. So soon the real tulips will bloom, and you can have them both inside. I have been known to admire flowers in a business place, only to be told " They are artificial"!!! Well, they looked so real, and colours to brighten a day, let them be there.

  17. Faux or not, as long as it makes you smile is all that matters :)

    Those tulips are gorgeous!

  18. bj ... just enjoy your beautiful faux flowers ... some rooms would be very sad without them. Just can't have plants/flowers in the house all the time unless they are faux. Nice to have fresh whenever possible. I am sure you will find a way to do some container gardening this year.

  19. This time of year I miss my garden so much I can't hardly walk past a selection of plants without getting one (or more) for the house. You can do a lot in containers, and wouldn't they look pretty around the pool area?

  20. Beautiful tulips! I can't wait to plant some flowers, but it's still a little cool here, too.

  21. BJ, sometimes the faux flowers can look very real. Your tulips are very pretty, and it's such fun to have them and the irises in bloom.
