FF and FNF

Today I am linking up with two Friday Memes.  Friday Flower Flaunt at Tootsie's and Feathered Nest Friday over at Courtney's.  Everyone that visits here is familiar with Tootsie and all of her projects inside and out.  Although Courtney has a HUGE following, I'm not sure everyone here is familiar with her.  She hosts a meme on Fridays where you share how you are improving your "Nest" inside and out. Her blog is so charming with a romantic feel ...not to mention tons of inspiration.

Wheelbarrow with Spike Dracaena, Diascia and Zinnia
Pink Glads in bud.  Our first flush of glads were purple. 
First bud on the Brugmansia.
Astilbe bud.  My Astilbes are in their creep year.  Here's to leaping next year!
I was trying to capture the bright reddish/orange color on the blades of this Toffee Twist Carex.
It is really quite eye catching in person.
Sedum dripping off a wheelbarrow.
 Stachys byzantina Lamb's Ear is just about to bloom.  I have read that they have a newer version of the Lamb's Ear that does not bloom and is a slower grower, hmm.

Pendants, Key Chains, Magnets and Brooches made from domino tiles.  Earrings made from scrabble tiles.
(see older post)
The girls are having so much fun wearing the tile jewelry and the feedback from school is "cool"!
Clicking on photos will enlarge them for a closer look..
P.S. I had another MRI on my hip yesterday it went fine.  Results next week, fingers crossed.

Just beautiful! I would like to know more about 'creeping years' and 'leaping years'. Off to Google! :)

Dragonfly Treasure said...

Your plants are so much farther along than mine. I can't believe your glads are blooming already, awesome!
Wishing all goes well with the results of your MRI.
Take care

Hi Darla, Love the sedum in the wheelbarrow - it looks great! I have a wheelbarrow, a wagon and two large pots that need planted however I need to wait until the last frost day (May 10). Thanks for the sedum inspiration.
Hope you are feeling better.

I love the sedum spilling out of the wheelbarrow and the carex is very beautiful.

Lois said...

Everything looks so pretty Darla! I'm fine, just so busy these days. Only a couple of months until I retire and things will slow down a bit. My daughter graduates from FSU tomorrow with her Masters in Music Ed and I am so proud! You might have noticed they are putting a pool in their back yard...digging started yesterday. The kids are excited!

Those domino key chains and necklaces are really nice. You are so creative.

Lona said...

Are those Glad from all of those bulbs you planted? Fast growers in your area. Your jewelry is so cute Darla! How clever. That is the prettiest Diascia. I just love the coral pink color of it.Have a wonderful weekend.

Skeeter said...

OMGoodness, your so cleaver to turn the old tiles into something new and fresh! One of a kind jewelry for the girls is awesome! Hope you learn something from the latest MRI and can move forward with the cure…

Val said...

Love all your flowers as always! But I LOVE your jewelry!!!What a great idea! Would you consider doing a tutorial? Hope your MRI gives you answers. I meant to ask you. Have you had an MRI with contrast? Someone told me that it makes you sick. I was not a happy camper to hear this since I am having one Monday.

GRACE PETERSON said...

I love your domino jewelry. I'm not surprised the kids at school were like, "Cool." Your flowers are wonderful too, of course.

Catherine@AGardenerinProgress said...

My Glads are just popping through the ground.
The jewelery and key chains are really cute! You are so talented!
