Flower Power

Hope everyone had a great Easter weekend.  #1 came home Saturday evening and we went to one of our favorite restaurants in town, Cavalli’s.  It was even nice enough to eat al fresco.
Later that evening, we had wicked overnight “funder whitening” storms as my girls used to call them.  Sunday we enjoyed a delicious lunch at Capital Grille in Dallas before our girl headed back to school to study.  At least that’s what she told us…

A couple of weeks ago, I went to my favorite Texas nursery, Calloways, to stock up on flowers for my pots.  As always, I was premature with my planting and we had a freeze three days after these photos were taken.  I bundled my pots up in warm blankets for two evenings and they survived.  Oh happy day!  
Here are a few pictures I took at Calloways while I was picking out my flowers.

Love the color of these begonias, but I never have much luck with them.  
Aren’t these lillies gorgeous?
Love the two purples together.
More begonias that don’t like me.

Great prices on orchids.  They’re not too crazy about me either.

And here are my creations that I spent two nights giving life support to….

Hope your Tuesday is filled with fresh flowers!

  1. Look how beautiful everything looks, Katie. I love that last picture. Just want you to know that when I try to send you a follow up to your comment it comes back as a NoReply blogger comment. I'm not ignoring you- xo Diana

  2. Gorgeous!!! I am like a nutty girl on the loose around flowers…zero control! I was at the nursery yesterday and went bonkers, but they make me happy so its all good (hey it could be worse)!

  3. I'll take one of each Katie! Your planters and pots look great .. it's looking like spring at your place:)

    I'm finally back. Both kids have been moved to apartments and things should quiet down. I've published a new post but it's not showing as refreshed on blog rolls. Blogger is always giving me a hard time:(

    Hope you've had a nice spring break and Easter weekend.


  4. Hey just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know
    a few of the images aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same outcome.
