Summer flowers

I am sharing my beautiful summer phlox with you today. I just love these flowers, but they do not last long as cut flowers. Their dainty petals seem to drop fast so I have to shoot them while I can.  Didn't have great lighting this day so I gave up rather quickly...therefore kinda redundant pictures. sorry. Did you notice that the petals in the first photo still have the morning dew on them? :)

I went to part of the *worlds longest garage sale* today and came home so tired. Didn't really go that far either. I think that is showing my age. ugh. I scored an amazing chippy white table with a light blue top for $20! I am thrilled and will be showing it to you soon!  Happy Summer everyone! It is flying by so enjoy it while you can. :)

Linking to Fishtail Cottage Garden Party today. You can click here to view it.

Gorgeous flowers Sandi! I thought phlox only bloomed in the spring. I'll have to see about planting some summer ones here. :)

These are so pretty! Such dainty little petals. For some reason, I always thought phlox were a springtime these!

Beautiful pictures, Sandi! The flowers are so pretty and I love the zinc container.
Your chippy table find sounds wonderful.
Happy weekend!

Beautiful photos and blooms! I've always wanted to see this World's Longest Garage Sale....I can't even imagine. Maybe someday I'll get to that part of the country:-)

Hope you are enjoying Summer.

Absolutely breathtaking. You are a good gardener and a very good photographer! Wahoo - seems like a win/win in this case.
