SoulFood#20~



My how time really does fly!!!!

Already..the Anemones are almost done~



Thank Goodness the bees are still visiting~

"Anemone flowers come in colors ranging from light pink to a wonderful shade of bluish purple. With 120 species of anemones available to gardeners, it's easy to choose a variety for your garden. Anemones, also known as windflowers, come in spring and summer blooming varieties. Hardy in zones 5 through 9, they are not fussy about soil type, although they do need a loose, well-drained soil."

I LOVE these late blooming windflowers..Even Lulu bent down to put his beautiful little nose in them!:) Irrésistibles! Même pour les petits..even for the small ones~

  8. Anemones were the first flowers I ever planted. They were in circles around the base of trees. I was so proud from all the comments I received. Many thousands of flowers later, I will have to try them again.

  11. Happy Labor Day~

    Susan I saw it too:) Good eye~

    Had clients this am..but this afternoon we sparkled every window in the house! I love the day we do this..I know.. the nester appears..But I love them sparkling..it lasts about 2 days.. today is perfect!


    Anemones are the perfect fall flower to me because they don't look like fall..they look like spring to me..Not gold..not yellow or red or rust.. not too late to clash w/ the ambered fall foliage..they marry beautifully w/ the last roses and certain sedums..

    Thank you..if you can grow them..try! A pleasure and maintenance free!

  15. I am with you Kathy, I will have to go back and start at the beginning too. I see people saying Monique and I didn't find that on the entry page, can't find a profile so I will go back to the beginning and read my way through. I love this blog, the pictures the recipes, the french sprinkled thorughout (hope to go there in May 2010) the soul food adorable. I made a recipe last night tweeked it a littl, but it was scrumpious, the scallops with grapes, try it.
