Allium & Water Lily
dwarf alliums & water lilies require you to get real low.

Allium & Foxglove
tall alliums & foxgloves allow you to see eye to eye.

i'm trying to go flower-free this weekend to give it a rest :)!

coney island isn't looking good this weekend. scott works in that neighborhood, which is only 20 miles away, but it often takes him an hour and a half or more to get home in brutal traffic. when i suggested it, i just about saw tears well up in his eyes. oh dear. he said maybe next weekend! i hope so cause the new trapeze ride looks terrific even though i'm not a ride person -!

Alliums and water lilies! Ohhhh, you sure know how to make my heart swell. Awww, just as well that you postpone Coney Island. The ride lines are probably very long.

Hope you are having a great weekend anyway!

Dagnabbit - I just realized I made some comments on Flickr but not here... I love Flickr but I rarely go there because it sure messes me up!

I dearly loved ALL these blooms (and you know how I love pink!) but I've got such a thing for foxglove - they're just so unique! These ones are perfect too!
