A Bouquet and Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day: July 2013

I forgot about Garden Blogger's Bloom Day, but that's ok, because I had already picked a bouquet showcasing my July garden flowers.  I picked it to celebrate Gravy Lesson's one year anniversary tomorrow. It's already been one year...can you believe it?  172 posts and I still feel like I'm just getting started.  

Alstroemeria psttacina 'Variegata'
I picked up this little hottie, Alstromeria psttacina 'Variegata' at Xera Plants Retail Store last week.  Normally, my garden is set by the beginning of June, but this year is different.  Perhaps this blog is giving me permission to pursue my plant lust all year long.  I like that.  And I'm so happy that you are here.  That's been the best part of this experiment.  Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day to you!
