It’s one of my favorite days of the month, when I join my blogging friends
for some flower therapy and Monday Morning Blooms!
Pam, Lidy and I are excited to welcome
Sarah, from Hyacinths for the Soul,
as our special guest ‘bloomer’ today.
You can find the links to my blogging friends’ floral
inspiration at the bottom of this post.
Sunflowers were our common theme for August’s edition of Monday Morning Blooms.
Sunflowers are the perfect flower for sunny, summer days as well transitioning to fall
with their yellow rays and warm brown centers!
I picked some sunflowers from the grocery store for an arrangement and centerpiece.
I added them to an ironstone pitcher,
with Limelight Hydrangeas that are blooming now. . .
Along with ‘Mathilda Gutges’ Hydrangea. . .
‘Mathilda’ has faded to a soft, muted blue shade from her
former vibrant blue/purple spring color . . .
And joining the sunflowers and Limelight Hydrangeas,
as well as some Abelia foliage cut from the shrubs.
A tablecloth with sunflowers was picked from HomeGoods a couple of weeks ago.
The soft blue background, reminiscent of faded blue hydrangeas
in the garden in August.
Have a seat and join me at a table for some dockside dining. . .
Word of warning: the humidity is on the rise and
the heat index is in the triple digits!
Cheery yellow sunflower bowls are layered on white sunflower plates . . .
Napkins are buzzing with bees on Easy DIY Sunflower Napkin Rings . . .
As well as on my favorite flatware for summer,
We’re dripping wet from the humidity, so we should jump in the lake to cool off!
The lake water temperature was 85.8 °F when I last checked on Sunday,
but it feels better than 102 °F. 🥵
