Summer of Color Orange

This week Kristin choose orange
and I was delighted as one of my
favorite plants this summer is
Calibrachoa otherwise known as
Callie Orange.
I used it as a filler plant in my
hanging baskets and it has done
beautifully.
I love this old poem. Sorry 
but the author is unknown.
I am anxious to see what Kristin
has in-store for us now! I have really 
enjoyed the summer of color and my
journal is filling up nicely.

hi Sharon, thanks for the comment on my blog. your art really is wonderful, you are very talented. I had to tell you that my Golden Retriever is my 2nd one, it took me 11 years to get another one after the death of my 1st. So, I understand what you mean. But, God has blessed me with an amazing dog that I plan on breeding this time...take care!
