Flowers.....Pretty Flowers......

I heard through the grapevine that my precious and wonderful Ohio grandkids love flowers. Well....what does this Trailboss do in a situation like that? She takes pictures of the flowers surrounding her house that she would love these sweet babes to pick for her.

They are oh so pretty

The grass growing between them drives Joe crazy but let's face it. It is next to impossible to keep all of the grass out of the flowers.

Do you see just how many flowers could be picked and delivered to their Gramma?

Every spring Joe plants these flowers from seed directly into the land and every year they are incredibility beautiful.

The next two are my whiskey barrels where I always plant annuals. This year it turned out quite nice but as usual, when the 99 degree weather sets in it changes a lot

So here is the challenge. I challenge my grandkids to convince their Mommy and Daddy to get their kahunas to Kentucky! And don't forget to bring who we really want to see. That would be Mia, Aubie & Emmeline!!!!!!!!!

Very nice. That's one thing about high humidity. It helps the flowers grow.

Nothing like those zinnias. I wish that they did as well here. I think that it is too humid here for them. They get a fungus. But they are one of my favorites.

Those are really beautiful flowers. I'm still working on my green thumb.
