Happy Independence Day!

Hi, everyone! 

I think I'm just about ready for tomorrow. Let's see...
Hot dogs and buns bought...check.
Beverages chilled...check.
Flags displayed, indoors and out...check.


A patriotic watering can of flowers, and red pillows on the deck...check, check.


Thanks to Liz @ Infuse With Liz for the blue paint inspiration. 
My little yellow watering can is now Patriotic Blue...

...and filled with a mix of flowers from the garden.
 Yep, I think I'm ready!

Wishing y'all a happy and safe weekend.
                   
Happy 4th of July!

What a beautiful home. Those peacocks and the hydrangea lined lane are stunning. I think it's always best to follow your heart and not trends! Take care.Happy Independence Day!

That's the cutest watering can I've ever seen! I love the colors red, white and blue, so this is my favorite decorating season of the year!

Babs, love your patriotic arrangement. Is that Crocosmia (not sure of spelling)? You have sun to grow zinnias and crocosmia. Anyway, it looks nice and cute idea to paint your watering can. You can change it back to yellow or paint it another color to suit your fancy.
