They Were So Pretty and a Pottery Barn Giveaway

Oh how I love the Spring here in the South...beautiful flowers are blooming everywhere. Most of them usually last until late summer, but not this year...these heatwaves have really done a number on them...poor babies just couldn't take it and I know how they feel...this ole gal is feeling the heat too! Good news is...I'm still hanging in there...yippee!! Now my beautiful flowers are not...most of them have gone bye bye and I really miss having them around here at my nest. How are your flowers doing? I sure hope yours are still around and making you happy. The Fall plants should be out soon and I'm looking forward to getting my hands on a few...until then I will just look back at some pics and smile:) If you have not already entered my current giveaway...then click here to WIN a $40 POTTERY BARN gift card and two coastal cuties. Now I know all of y'all would have a FUN time spending that $40 at PB with all there beautiful Fall items out...I know I would be like a kid in a candy shop...how bout you?
                                        So happy to have you here,

I'm right there with you! My pots have all dried up. The weeds, however, don't seem to mind the heat!

Debra said...

My flowers are all gone, too. Waiting for the cool down to plant some more.

Tardevil said...

Your flowers look much better than mine, but maybe that was the 'before' picture. I'm ready to see some pansies and mums. Bring on the fall!

Yours were beautiful! I'm sorry they're gone. Mine are still looking good, but we get a much later start here! I fully expect mine to last another 6-8 weeks. (ok, maybe that's wishful thinking, but I'm putting it out there) :)

Have a great day!

My flowers have all withered away in this scorching heat. I blame myself partly but I don't think any amount of babying them would have saved them. Ready for some fall mums. Gorgeous pics!

I have a few that are hanging on but a lot are either fried or starting to sizzle! I'm going to try to cut them back and see if they get a second wind.

We haven't had a hot summer yet the pots still dry out super fast if you miss a day or so watering! Love all your flower photos:-)

Beautiful photos! Sorry to hear they're gone. It's been such a rough summer in the south. We've been getting tons of rain up north, so my gardens are looking a tad bit more wild than I prefer, but we don't get the late color that you do in the south. Thanks for sharing.

Isn't it something how the weeds aren't affected by the heat? I was just outside watering my flowers and noticed the weeds in the area by the poolhouse ugh!!! Yes, mine have been slowly losing their spring goodness, I guess fall is on it's way whether I like it or not!

I shared my win of Uprinting on FB, and this Pottery Barn giveaway! My flower pots are suffering too! Yours were beautiful!

Cindy said...

My flowers are looking pretty good, the roses are blooming still and I had two huge dragon leaf begonias until the deer ate them this weekend!

gail said...

well, truth be told, most of mine have withered. :(
We haven't had enough rain, and Ms forgetful forgot to water some of the potted plants. I'm trying to revive them. They're living, but not very pretty. :(

Mine are feeling the heat! I have watered and watered and some of my plants still look pitiful! I can't wait for Fall and mums and pumpkins!
Hugs,

We've been in the mid 90's for weeks and our flowers are spent! I've actually gotten rid of a lot of my potted plants already because they were too strung out. I may replant the pots in a couple of weeks when things cool down with mums and pansies! By the way your spring flowers were gorgeous! Thank heavens for air conditioning!

Thank you so much for your kind comment on my blog this morning. It's always nice hearing from you, Linda!

Your flowers look so pretty. Some of my pots I had to throw out, that was due to me not watering them. :) It has been cooler here lately so the garden is still hanging in there. :)

Your flowers look pretty. I am in Michigan and looks like Fall is just round the corner. The thought of winters makes me sad coz then there won't be my flowers to make me smile every morning.
