~~Floating Fairies~~

The Fairy Rose has bloomed & it's such a sweet, pretty spring surprise with it's tiny, dainty little clusters of pink flowers ~~

Here is today's floating garden ~ there is nothing prettier than colorful petals floating on water.

I had a little fun in the garden today taking one or two little flowers from each plant in my garden & setting them afloat to play amongst each other as a breeze moves them around ~~ I love to do this & I was amazed to find I had such a sampler of blooms plus a couple of favorite leaves.

This is what's blooming in my garden :-)
The Fairy Rose, Katy Road Rose, Geranium, Marigold, Poppy, Larkspur, Dianthus, Pansy, Four O'Clock, Hollyhock, Jasmine, Bachelors Button, Mexican Hat, Petunia, Impatien, Oleander, Lantana, Coreopsis, Columbine, Allysum, Agapanthus, Begonia, Crysanthemum (didn't think those would be blooming now but this one is), Red Yucca, Japanese Maple Leaf, Violet Leaf, Sea Oats Leaf. I know I missed one but can't recall it's name ~

This is a one of a kind with every flower from my garden, but just a few petals is nice in a floating garden so they can really move around ~ forgot to pick the lamb's ear, zinnia, & honeysuckle but I don't think there is room for them!

The Fairies are Afloat!
