I picked them just for you!

I went outside this morning to do some not so glamorous things {take out the trash, dump the garbage etc.} and picked a few of my remaining flowers that are fast fading away into oblivion.

Pink hollyhocks, fairy rose and a purple weed/flower that is found all along the roadsides here in Michigan. I did notice that the stems of this weed/flower are covered with little tiny bugs so I only brought three stems inside to use.

I try to squeeze out every last ounce of pink flower love that I can before fall hits. *smile* 

What about you? Are your flowers fast fading away ?

The nights are turning cooler , but the days are still HOT and HUMID here. I think we are getting the summer now that we didn't get in July and the beginning of August. I am so over any hot and humid weather, even though we really didn't get as much as we usually get this year. I am one happy camper! 

Yep, this is one girl who is not crazy at all for hot weather. I am not a beach or sun girl either. I never did like to lay in the sun. My sister and I are polar opposites. She LOVES the sun , sand and water and I would rather stay away from it. Don't get me wrong, I like to dip my feel in the ocean or sit on a pier dangling my legs over the edge, but it rarely happens and I am okay with that.   Gods beauty is all around me no matter where my eyes happen to wander in my little corner of the world. 

The prairie weeds/flower. I know these have a name , but I just can't think of it right now.

Praying you all have a lovely Wednesday and rest of the week!

Via Pinterest today:

It's Wednesday.
I'm breathing.
I'm alive.
I'm blessed.
God is good!

Love your pink and blue flowers. Those pesky bugs should stay at the roadside. I love them too, just not the bugs. My flowers are fast dwindling too, I could use a little more summer though.

Sandi, Our flowers are fading fast. The black eyed susans are dying out no matter how much I water or fertilize them. I love your know I am crazy for that little picket fence...too sweet.xoxo,Susie

Those flowers are chicory, Sandi. The native Americans would grind their dried roots into a powder and make a coffee like drink.
Your bouquet is so pretty! And I am in love with your flower frog collection! The one with the little birdie is just too sweet! I am so ready for cooler temps and fall!!
