“For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.”
Hello sweet friends! With the arrival of summer this week, I know that Independence Day is just around the corner. Have you made your plans? We will follow the long-standing tradition of celebrating the 4th of July at home with our family. My Renaissance Man will be the grill master serving up burgers and hot dogs. I will prepare all of the side dishes…baked beans, potato salad, and corn on the cob! Of course, the table will be decorated with all of the red, white, and blue for a patriotic celebration.
Being it is the third Monday of the month, I am joining my talented friends to bring you a 4th of July edition of Monday Morning Blooms!
Picnics and 4th of July go together like apple pie and ice cream! I set up my picnic table in honor of the red, white, and blue! A large pasta jar holds an arrangement of blue hydrangeas, white Annabelle’s, and a few red mini carnations. Last week I visited my friend’s hydrangea farm and brought home armloads of big, beautiful blooms. Be watching for an upcoming blog post on her amazing farm!
Shirley, Mary, and Lidy have created beautiful 4th of July floral inspiration and their links are at the bottom of this post.
