Bloomin' Tuesday

There is nothing like garden fresh tomatoes.

Beautiful Daisies
After the sunflowers dry, I hang them from a string on the clothesline and watch the birds.
This isn't the best photo, but I couldn't catch up with the butterfly. Do you see it?
This is an end of summer shot of one of my five enormous ferns.
The picture does not give this beauty justice.

My flag of the week.
Have a Happy Bloomin' Tuesday. To really celebrate, visit Jean at http://msgreenthumbjean.blogspot.com/!

Hi Sweetie...I enjoyed your pretty blooming pics and realize summer is fading away here in Texas for me. I LOVE those ferns too and I have 3 of them I'm going to try to winter over in the garage...it could be tricky though because mine are huge like yours. ;-) Bo

Beautiful flowers! And on your sidebar...you have my Blue Willow dishes...my favorite too. Mine belonged to my Grandma, so I don't use them...I have some of them displayed on plate racks. One day I'll post them!

You take very nice photos and yes I saw the butterfly.

What a gorgeous fern (or ferns if I look at the latest photo.) That is one plant that doesn't do well here, even in the house. They look very ratty after a couple of months. All your flowers are lovely. I couldn't see the butterfly, even after enlarging the photo!

HiSweetie, what beautiful flowers in your garden today!
I tried and tried, I just couldn't find that butterfly!
Your tomatoes are huge!
Love, Ann

Our tomato garden this year was a total bust, so I'm glad to see someone had a thriving one. There's not much better than a fresh tomato! Love the ferns -- just gorgeous! And your flag is wonderful.

Everything looks huge and full of blooms. The ferns are amazing! Do you get new ones every year? Love the sunflowers and what fun to feed the birds with them. Happy Bloomin' Tuesday! Jean

I love your mini petunias! You just about have every color don't you? Nothing is prettier than a huge fern (or two or three;) on a porch! Thank you for sharing!

I can't wait until my garden tomatoes are ready...there's lots on the plants but they haven't ripened yet. At least everything else is ready to pick:-) Your flowers are so beautiful and your ferns leave me in awe. xoxo

Sweetie, So many things about your blog tell me your a girl after my own heart. It's always nice to meet another gardener.
