Good morning! LOTS of fluffing going on around here! Joe had been, LITERALLY, working his butt off doing our new landscaping. And I mean literally, his pants are about falling off. I guess I should be digging put there too!!!!!!!!!!! However, I have been busy doing other things and one of them was fixing and adding to my summer wreath. In the move it got kinda messed up so I pulled alot off it and then kinda redid it all.I only used what I had on hand so this was a FREE project!!!! Love that! I had some extra flowers in my stash so decided to make it LUSH and FULL!!!!!!!!!!! Full of color and life! As you may remember from last year, I wired 3 wreaths together for the base. Then startd adding some flowers and fun gardening items. This is how it looks as you come up the walk.

 Here you can see the 3 wreaths and that a nest pick was added to the center.

 This cute little mossy birdhouse was in the stash so on it went!!!
 Small clay pots were also added. I just pulled wire through the hole in the bottom and wired them to the grapevine. I tip I should pass on to you is buy BUSHES of flowers when you can and cut them apart. You get SO much more "bang for your buck" than single stems and they are usually perfect for wreaths. The impatiens were a bush as well as the geraniums and other flowers too.
 I wanted a real mix of colors so it would be vibrant enough to see easily from the street. Plus all the colors in the annuals and bushes out front are repeated here. I love this pink edged hydrangea, the salmon colored impatiens, creamy hydrangea and touches of PALE blues.

 I even added some bright reds since I have red begonias planted out front too. Long sprigs of flowering stems are added to the outside to make it larger too.

 I love the way it turned out. I always have a wreath on the door to say "WELCOME" to any guests who come. I think it is a friendly way to welcome friends and family. Joe's sister and her hubby are coming up from Fl. in 3 weeks to visit us and I am so anxious to see them and have them here!!!. Thanks for YOUR visit. XO, Pinky
