Greg had a dream this summer. That dream was to attract butterflies and hummingbirds to our log home. He built flower boxes, researched magazines & the internet, and then planted (without my help! Crazy huh?) the flowers himself.
Well the wildflowers popped up only recently. Before then, you should've seen the hubby's face and heard his words as he checked them every week we headed up to the cabin (What is up with those !@#$ wildflowers?!)
I wanted to share his handiwork with you. (Darla, perhaps you can name some of these flowers for us?? We have no clue!!)
Here is one of two flower boxes that Greg built. (I was responsible for the patio plants!)
What are those red flowers Darla? I like em!
Close up of a purple flower.... (all my flowers are known by colors since I don't know what the heck their names are!)
Doesn't this yellow flower remind you of a ray of sunshine?
I know what these are! Marigolds! Well that's because I planted them in Greg's box (he was a little perturbed - I was suppose to stick to the patio plants) - but I thought they would look nice there.
We've only had a few hummingbirds and butterflies this summer. It hasn't been the best weather wise this year - hopefully next year we get more of our winged visitors!
