    This was taken on the street in Senoia, Ga . this week.

    In store front window..

    This was taken from TV show….

    In my front yard

    I planted this pot of flowers with the intention of having a red , white and blue container for the 4th of July…..The top was planted with a dark blue flower that I thought was going to grow and hang down the sides some but it has just sat there and not done anything…it is not dead but no flowers on it….so at the dollar store the other day I purchased the only blue silk flowers they had and this is where I put them….Next year I am going with all petunias…..red, wht and blue…

    Hope everyone has a wonderful and safe holiday….God Bless you and America !

    What a fabulous idea, Janet!  I love the strawberry pot done in red, white, and blue.  If I can remember it for next year, I am going to give it a try myself.

    In Womens World Magazine this month…last weeks I think.

    This is on my dinning room table….I am allergic to candle scents , so I purchased some artificial candles that have a switch on the bottom to turn on and I light those at night when I want to burn A candle ….does very good….that is the white part, the red candle is a regular candle….Red, white and Blue flat sided marbles in goblet glass and I picked  up that rug I guess it is at the thrift store a couple of years ago.

    I started this post so everyone could post to it their pictures of Red, white and Blue…..come on now…I want to see what you all have too.

    That container that I tried for RED <WHT And BLUE is not your regular strawberry pot….I purchased a very large plastic pot from the dollar store for $8 and had DH to cut holes all around it like one I had seen at a gardening center …Begonia’s have done well in it and even overwintered the first year sitting out in the open yard….I have a PVC pipe in center with holes all the way down that and I pour water in that several times when I am watering to help get water to the side plants….I think he used one of the cutters like you use to make the hole for a door lock to make the side holes with..

    That’s a neat idea, Janet, on the strawberry pot, whether in red, white and blue or not.  I like the idea of the pipe in the center for watering, too.  Otherwise, those holes are hard to water.

    I’m enjoying the pics, just have nothing to show.  No patriotic plant combos or decorations.  I thought I’d have something tomorrow, but I forgot the camera.  I do have to run home to get my dds swimsuit!  Grr!  Thankfully we are just at our friends “camping” only 20 min from home.

    Very nice. I missed out on a three color butterfly bush last year. The bush had a separate bloom of each color on it. Red,white,and blue.  The ole he who hesitates ……..shopping trip.

    This is actually from last year.  I planned the same thing this year but my white Dianthus turned out to be purple.
