Outdoor Wednesday April 29

It's Wednesday again & I want to thank Susan for hosting another Outdoor Wednesday. Click the link on my sidebar to the right to see all the other entries. WE NEED RAIN HERE IN TEXAS but, the skies have been grey & I have had the funkies. So , I was thinking back to the beautiful flowers from a trip we had to Vail Colorado a couple of years ago. I decided that is what I would share today.
The Poppies were HUGE! And the colors so intense! You can tell a little better about the size because "Honey" put his hand next to one. And trust me ladies he is no tiny guy. And pay a attention to his ring... he talked me into buying that for him YEARS ago...

Yes, It's him again & the frog had the same ring! Goes to show you... you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you find your Prince! And yes, I found him! Poppies & Daisy's
Lupine! These were huge! And to think that the Texas bluebonnets are in the same family...
Lupine, Iris, & Lobelea. Such cool colors here. And do flowers make your heart go pitty pat???? Bleeding Heart! It is way too hot here to grow these so I really enjoyed these beauties. Hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday.

Lovely post! Those are some BIG lupines! Wow.

My poppies are some weeks away from blooming -- only the leaves are visible now. But I've got bleeding heart just coming into full bloom. They are so delicate and graceful.

LOVE the frog!

Pretty pictures of flowers -- and what a great pic of your DH with the frog (and the same ring) -- I think I would have that framed and put somewhere. It's a GREAT picture!

Charlene,

The poppies and daisy's made my heart leap. Our poppies are sending some green forth from the earth and I ahve not seen any stems yet. I too grow the large orange ones and have a beautiful salmon color I brought ten yrs ago from our last home. Love them!
I enjoyed the natural look of your Cali poppies and daisy's garden. All the flowers are so pretty!

LOVE the flower pics!

AND of course, your banner is lovely! I have always loved everything and anything that Tiffany creates. She is so talented!

I just checked my voice mail in the studio and I didn't get a voicemail from you sweetie...we were having a bad storm yesterday afternoon so that could have been the problem because we lost electricity for a while! Ohhhhh I am so sorry I missed you!

I am headed out to the studio now to give you a ringy-dingy!

Love,
LuLu~*xoxo
