Enjoy the weekend.
P.S. We came to visit a lot of your blogs last night and couldn't leave comments for some reason. Was anyone else having this problem???

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

Hi...I have joyfully been in business now for 7 years and have had a wonderful time crafting and getting to know all of you. I am very thankful for all of you who have been dedicated customers over this time span. Without all of you I would not have been able to stay in business for as long as I have. Regretfully I need to inform you that the Sunflower House will be closing its doors to storefront retail business. I will although be running a retail business from my web page of which you will be seeing many changes soon. I will be running many sales over the next 2 months to liquidate the inventory that I have, sales will begin July 9th, 2007. Please take advantage of this and stock up on supplies while the shop is still here.
Click HERE to visit the Sunflower House web site. Chris is very sad about this also. He would go and buy stocking stuffers for me there. I guess we will have to take more trips to Erie now.

Mom picked me up at 9:00 am.
We started at this nursery.
Sandy's really isn't a greenhouse. She has acres of land and she will go into the fields with you and dig out any flowers that you want. Most are $2.00 a shovel.
Then we ran into this nursery by accident so we had to stop.
We both decided it was time to go home. Neither one of us does very well in the heat. We chose one of the hottest days of the year so far to go to all of these greenhouses. Who knew back in May that it would be this warm in June. It has to be at least 90 and very humid. I am sitting in the air conditioning now and that is were I am staying. We had a very nice day together. We got back to my house at 3:00 pm. Oh, by the way, we did stop and have lunch too.

Dianthus is a perennial that grows best in zones 3-8 with mounds of blue/green foliage that is evergreen in mild climates. This variety is "Cheddar Pink". It has fragrant, fringed pink flowers with dark pink accents and a red ring around the throat. It will bloom from Spring to Autumn.
Spireas are deciduous shrubs with abundant clusters of tiny rose-like flowers. The flowers grow along the entire length of their stems in the spring, and at the tips of their branches in the summer. The small white or pink flowers have 5 petals and a spray of stamens at the center. They grow best in zones 3-8. We have 2 of these growing in the front of our house.
Astilbe is a perennial that is ideal for moist shade gardens. The feathery plumes grow above mounds of graceful, deep green to bronze fernlike foliage and make Astilbe an ideal filler in shady borders or for use as a background accent. It is hardy in zones 3-8 and blooms from late June - August.
Thanks for visiting our blog.

I "bought" her a new cartridge for her Cricut for her birthday. (I meant to buy it, but no one around here had it in stock so she just got a picture of it and an I.O.U.) A.C. Moore got some in on Friday so we decided to go pick one up.
After a few short stops we had to go to our "second home" for a few things. We bought knobs for the kitchen cabinets and drawers and a few other odds & ends.
We stopped on our way home to take some pictures of the lake. It was a beautiful day out today. It was 75 and sunny with a nice breeze coming off of the lake. It was nice to get away for a few hours so we enjoyed our trip.
