Fourth of July

happy fourth by Brooke

  Hoping your holiday is filled with lots of sunburns, swimming, ice cream, fireworks, watermelon, burgers, and lots of red, white, and blue.  I gathered together some of my favorite red, white and blue flowers.  Would be fun to have these all blooming together for the holiday, wouldn't it?

Reds:

1. Clematis.  Perfect for training on walls and arbors.

2. Coral Bells, Firefly.

3. Kniphofia, Nancy Red

 

Whites:

4. Allium.  These creamy whites make a great cut flower.

5. Armeria maritima, 'Alba'. Pretty groundcover that forms neat mounds.

6. White Fountain Gaura

 

Blues:

7. Sedum, Blue Spruce and Lidakense.

8. Dwarf Blue Artic Willow.  Can be found in shrub or tree form.

9. Cobalt Blue Primrose.

hurry, it's almost here by Brooke

 

Any fun plans for the Fourth of July?  Here, they do the fireworks on the 3rd for some reason, so it is almost upon us!!  Found some more simple DIYs for outdoor Fourth of July entertaining.  I'm all about simple over here.

 

Ready to throw up a few simple decorations, slice up a watermelon, and pick up a whole bunch of sparklers at the dollar store.  Can't wait!
