Alphabe-Thursday

Flowers, Frogs and Ferns?
Why the question mark?  Because I am posting things beginning with the letter F for Alphabe-Thursday but I am really actually thinking about summer and how much I am longing for it.  But for now here are some pictures of some of the flowers I grow in our gardens and around our yard.




























































































We have two ponds and a ton of these jumpy, chirping, croaking and singing all night green frogs.  When they start making noise summer is near.  I have actually become use to them singing me to sleep at night.





































And last, the ferns that cover the floor of the woods that surrounds us like a sea of green.  They try and take over the gardens and the wooded walks we have.  The grandchildren like to hide in them because they get so tall and they are still so short.

I believe this is a post of things beginning with the letter F and a dreamer thinking about her favorite season of the year.  I hope you enjoyed thinking about summer with me I always enjoy you coming by.

Hi Brenda- what lovely pictures- makes me long for lazy, warm summer days! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for your nice comments! Your pin cushion looks just like mine! They are really unusual- there's a similar one on etsy right now- she called it a "rare armchair Victorian pin cushion".

Jacque said...

Good Morning Brenda,

Your flowers and pond are exactly what I envision our yard to be in the FUTURE...LOL As slow as the progress is coming on the REstoration of our farmhouse, I don't know when I will ever be able to tackle the yard! BUT, it will be full of beautiful flowers just like yours!

Thanks for sharing your "F" pics with us today and thanks for stopping by the farmhouse for a visit. We love having company.
