How does your garden grow?



After a devastating heat wave last week, this week we have seen cooler temps and rain, rain, rain.  It's lovely to see the flowers perking back up.  Our lawn, despite frequent water last week, is still looking a little heat singed.  I'm hoping that we will see some renewed lushness (is that a word?  i'm fairly certain that lushiosity is not-- but it sounds so much better!) after all this rain. 

Heading over to Paint Party Friday now for some fresh inspiration.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. Hi, I stopped by from PPF.

    Beautiful painting you've made. Yes, I hope the flowers and grass come back for you. And I hope it doesn't get so hot again. One can only wish.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  8. Your flowers are lovely. It is so nice to see the grass and the flowers bloom again after it rains. It is raining here tonight and I know everything will look so much better in the morning.

  13. These flowers are beautiful! I saw something similar to these on a steve madden purse today!! Yes lushness is a word! I have been using the word lush a lot since we have had so much rain! Everything is so beautiful and lush here in B.C right now. I love it!!

  17. Beautiful! These look like snapdragons, which I love but can't seem to grow. I love seeing bunches of them in different colors, just like your painting. I think lushiosity should definitely be a word.

  20. Beautiful! In the desert here so definite lack of lushness ;) May you get some rain soon! Happy PPF!

  21. Lushness away...sounds like it should be a word... lucky you heat wave, wish it would find it's way over here. Love your painting, very summery :D

  22. Loving your flowers too! Same weather here, only add humidity and no wind to the mix! Icky and sticky! We finally have been getting some thunderstorms and rain, but it's not cooling down or taking away the humidity. So unusual for our area. I hope your garden recovers. P.S. LOVE the word Lushiosity!

  23. I love your flowers - I am water color impaired so I am so admiring of lovely watercolor work. Hope your outdoor flowers recover - in Beaufort SC they say the flowers are "sun done" when there is too much heat.

  24. Beautiful flowers! I just love these colors together...so bright and cheerful. I hope your yard returns to normal after the rain too. Oh, and a beach cruiser is a type of bike that is everywhere at the beach! :) Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

  25. Your beautiful colorful array of flowers make me smile. Saw so many lovelies on our recent trip and took lots of photos...my pink very pink hydragenas are coming to an end of their season so clipped some and put in the house to dry and keep, hopefully.

    Happy PPF on Sunday!

  28. Yes, I think most of us will have to paint flowers this summer if we want any. Ours were burnt crisp, and now they are half drowned.

    Love the lively feel of these.
