Saturday Snapshots - Showers Brings Flowers - June 8, 2013

Alyce at At Home With Books has decided to take a break from blogging and from hosting Saturday Snapshot. We will miss her, but all of us understand a need to step back, regroup, and prioritize one's life. We hope to see her back soon. Saturday Snapshot is now hosted by Melinda at West Metro Mommy while Alyce is away.
 
To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky (at West Metro Mommy). Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

We've had a  lot of rain lately -- seems worth it when I look at these

 Purchased a new orchid (2) weeks ago and so far it's doing great

If you look closely on the orange sections, you might notice some butterflies

  2. Beautiful! I have always loved gardens, but don't have a green thumb...at all! Pooh.

    Thanks for sharing yours, though; and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

  6. My grass is super green because of all the rain we've been getting. Such beautiful pics! I also bought an orchid and it sits on my kitchen table and makes me smile everyday.

  7. Our grass is growing too fast to keep up with. Looks like a jungle out there. I love daisies but some have come up in the wrong places here so I had to mow some down. When I've tried transplanting them, they have died. Your orchid is beautiful.

  14. It apparently rained a lot while we were gone. My garden definitely needs some tidying.

    I love your purple spiky flowers.
