This past week when I picked up my daughter from school she said she wanted to make a "rainbow garden." I'm not 100% sure where she got the idea or what she had in mind but this is what I came up with.
The bright containers are sand buckets that I picked up at Michael's for a dollar each. She picked out the colors. Then we headed over to Lowes where she was quite upset to discover that pink was not a color or the rainbow and that there wasn't a green flower.
We compromised and picked a white flower to go in the green bucket and I told her we would plant some pink flowers this weekend. Where is still to be determined, have to figure that one out fast.
I love the bright yellow Gerber daisy and her favorite is the purple, which isn't a surprise since purple is her favorite color. The first thing she did when I turned my back was pick the orange poppy. I told her if she picks them all they won't have any more flowers and then she got upset. This morning she was thrilled when she discovered an orange poppy blooming and she hasn't picked any of the other flowers yet.
I'm linking this up to Fishtail Cottage's Cottage Flora Thursday's...come see all the wonderful gardens!
