Coronado Flower Show

Hi Everyone
Happy Monday

This weekend 
My husband took me to the
Coronado Flower Show
What a fabulous day
So fun walking around and looking at all of the amazing flowers
This beautiful arrangement was my favorite
love the colors and even the tiny succulents 
the lilacs smelled intoxicating 



 They judge the roses all lined up together in rows
here are the second place
red ribbon winners
Here are the First place
blue ribbon winners
there were 6 large white tents just filled with beauty

old step side trucks this one was
filled with roses
a truck bed full of roses

{Love}
flowers in painted tin cans

Grateful 
for such a beautiful weekend
 such beauty  inspired us to work in our garden

This is my new DIY brick border it turned out great
we used recycled brick. It is  alittle uneven and looks like it has been there forever
Simply perfect to me and
 a fun project
linking up with House in the Roses for
Show off your Cottage Monday

  1. I'd love to go to a show like this...I can just imagine the wonderful scent in the air! The vintage truck is cute!

    I like your bricks...you both did that yourself? Kudos to you! It's really nice. I love the foxglove, too. Your garden is as pretty as the inside of your home!

  4. Hi Pam,
    Thank you for letting me know about your blog!This is lovely! Very inspiring and we have a common taste in treasures. The pictures you took are so sweet. It was wonderful to see you both yesterday, and hope it won't be your only flower show! It's been a family event for us since I can remember. The silver cup that says NAS Seattle from 1953 is exactly when my mom and grandparents were stationed at the nearby NAS Sandpoint in Seattle area and where my parents met. My granddad was the CO of the base at the time. How amazing to see the picture of the cup! Hope the four of you continue in health and happy times, and hope to see you again soon. Claudia

  8. Hi, friend! You've got a lot of informative & creative posts so why
    not show them off at the Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop? My co-host
    this week is Amber from Lucky Lees To Be.

    This is a combination of linky party (where we can show off our
    creations) and of blog hop (where we can follow as many excellent
    bloggers as we like), hence the name Creative Bloggers' Party & Hop.
    It's a great way to meet awesome creative bloggers like you and
    increase your followers in the process.

    All you have to do is 1) link up whatever creative post you'd like to
    share - can be a DIY project, decor, photography, crafts, recipes,
    poem, thrift finds, tips, or that informative syndicated post that can
    make us laugh, or cry - in short, whatever you're proud of! 2) Then
    follow as many blogs as your heart desires, preferably starting first
    with the one before you and after you, and leave a comment to them
    that you're doing so.

    You’re not required to include the party button – you read that right
    – not required to include the party button but if you’re so inclined
    to display it in your blog or your post, you’re very much welcome to
    do so :)

    See you at http://www.homemakeronadime.com/2011/04/creative-bloggers-party-hop-041711.html

  11. What a darling husband you have. I love that first arrangement, too! I just got back from Paris where I went to my favorite flower market. I will have to make a plan to go to the Coronado Flower show next year. My mom lives in San Diego. Did you stop and "smell the roses?"
