Late Summer Flowers

Hi everyone!  I feel like I haven't blogged in forever.  The last couple of weeks have been horrendous!  Of course when my husband and I went to my in-laws little place in Pennsylvania, I suddenly came down with the flu and now I have bronchitis that's giving me asthma attacks.  Ugh!  School also started so I'm trying to get into the swing of things.  Well enough of that...............The only crafts I've been working are swap related, an altered bottle for the Altered Paper group and a tussie for the Marie Antoinette Style Trade Group.  So what I'm posting are some photos of some flowers from my garden.  My dear neighbor watered my flowers while I was in Pennsylvania and to my surprise everything looked so lush and pretty when we came back.  Thanks for taking a peak and I hope everyone has a nice, long weekend!

These are all of my broken garden pieces that I don't have the heart to throw away. Don't they kind of look like archaeological pieces?

Hi Kelly,
Love your beautiful blooms! I did very little outside primping this year, we were busy in the spring with inside work, and before I knew, it was hot and summery. Thanks for letting me enJOY the fruits of your labors, even if only in pictures.
have a lovely weekend,

Pretty, pretty flowers. I love fall but I'm going to hate to see summer go. Kane County Flea Market is this weekend. :o)

Sorry to hear you were under the weather...I have asthma too and it's really terrible for me in the winter. Hope you are better.

Very pretty blooms! Things seem to be petering out here except for my impatiens. How sweet of your neighbor to keep things going for you!!

Hope you get back to 100% soon. It's awful getting sick while traveling.
Love your flowers and your bits, I'd keep them too. Probably put them in a big pot or the flower bed.

Kelly, I adore your broken garden pieces, in fact, that is what I have been looking for on my treasure hunts. Found one thing Saturday morning but it wasn't quite right so I'll keep searching. Happy Pink Saturday and Labor Day.

Well, your flowers are beautiful and cheerful..I would have a hard time throwing the garden pieces out too. They still look wonderful
