I can't forget about the bees..


So I shared the DIY Hummingbird bath Tutorial... but it seems that is too deep for bees...

I can't forget about the bees... so this simple DIY Bee Bath...
offers water to Nature's Pollenators... IMPORTANT TOO!

Fill a tray with marbles... and then fill with water... just deep enough that the bees can reach the water from the safety of the marble tops...

Impressive- and simple... ( a fun way to get kids excited about
bees... PLEASE!) 


P.S. Bee Bath... I like it... another addition to a great garden!

"Seal in the freshness"...


I created this garland out of cuttings from P Allen Smith- Chaste Tree (or Vitex)... along with elaeagnus (Olive Martini)... Rosemary... and of course...

-Gorgeous Pacific Blue Roses... the combination is stunning...

and Allen made this video - sharing the tips for constructing a gorgeous garland like this...

I made this the day before... and glued the roses into place with cold adhesive (rubber cement)... and sprayed it completely with
Chrysal Professional Glory to "seal in the freshness"...

We displayed it on Allen's porch... and I took this picture the day after I created it... shows how well this technique holds up!



P.S. Flower garlands are fun way to bring the garden inside... and decorate with Flowers!

Flower Totems... WOW!!!


On a recent visit to Amsterdam... Kelly and I ran across these amazing Flower Totems...

created from all different varieties of flowers an foliage..

The construction was incredible... Metal poles were
bolted to the board at the bottom... and then foam was mounted
around the poles and secured with anchor tape...

Then the flower placements were added... it was a tremendous display and showcased the flowers so well... 



P.S. Flower Totems... WOW!!!

With their perfectly round green ball heads, this relative of the Carnation is a great addition to any arrangement... (Yep.. Carnations

What do you think? Do you "LIKE" ???


I spotted this on a visit to Amsterdam... and the Flower Auction...

In a Local wholesaler... this common tropical flower is typically
red and has a very recognizable form...

however this variety has a mutation that occurs in the Spadix... that creates a different shape and form...

What do you think? Do you "LIKE" ???


P.S. It's a Pink Anthurium called..."Coral reef"...
