Thank You & Tuesday's Display Chain

Hi! I wanted to start my post off by saying THANK YOU for all the wonderful comments about my giveaway & the encouraging words about the show.  It means alot to me ~ I'm going to keep being optimistic & if I never sell anything then hey @ least I've been having fun, right?!? Thank you to all my new followers too ~ I will be around to check out everyone's blogs ASAP! My internet was down ALL day today! I thought I was going to die! lol So I'm a little behind on my blog lists & posting. I will hopefully be back later with some listings of some stuff I'd like to try to sell. :)
But for now I wanted to join in the Tuesday display chain today over @   http://bumblebeelanecottage.blogspot.com/2011/05/tuesdays-display-chain-birds-bees-and.html -Thanks Amy for hosting!   I hope everyone is enjoying their Tuesday... it's still rainy & cold here in Ohio so please forgive my pics of my blooms ~ it was trying to rain as I was trying to take pics!

my sis gave me this for mother's day -there were quite a few blooms but they are all dying :( not sure what i did to it! lol
this bunch is in my front flowerbed -see my dragonfly?!? my mom made it :)

not sure what this is called but it's GIGANTIC compared to last year -this patch is out back -it came from my grandma's house so it's extra special to me :)

 


not sure what this is but the flowers are so tiny

my "fan" flower
oh i'm so bad! i can't remember the name of this either!! i only know a few!
my light purple irises

my mother's day drawing from Cody -lists why he's thankful for his mom :)

these are the only birds I found today - all the real ones are hiding from the rain!

Great blooms (and turkey!) photos Rachel!! Love them all! The "little flowered" ones in front of that very, very sweet little stool or chair are Heuchera (or coral bells). And, from what I'm seeing, the ones from your grandmother look to be bachelor button (also called cornflowers in some parts) - but not sure....my computer wouldn't let me enlarge for some reason. No matter what they're called - I call them beautiful!! Thanks for sharing! Smiles & Hugs, Robin
