Dirt Road Adventures – Fresh Flower Arrangements

Welcome to Dirt Road Adventures! This week we are taking a look back at all things happening at the end of our dirt road and catching up on some of my favorite blog posts from my friends.

Fresh picked Flower Arrangements

Although my flower garden is small, I do have an abundance of blooms and plenty for flower arrangements.

The Black Eyed Susan’s are stunning and my little diy flower bed is really overflowing with delight blooms.

I picked several flowers to create a loose flower arrangement centerpiece for our Supper Clubs Summer Picnic. I hope you’ll check out all the fun details here.

Hydrangea Flower Arrangements

The hydrangeas are starting to fade and I”m desperately trying to save them all. I have so many vases, crocks and ironstone pitchers full of them.

Can you believe all these beautiful colors came from the same plant?

This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.

First, a DIY Headboard from a Yard Sale Find.

I had a Spray Paint Adventure and now these Lanterns look brand new.

The Rotisserie Chicken Salad is so delicious and easy to make. See Recipe here.

Why Didn’t I Think of That?

Each week, there are so many wonderful blog posts, and I’m sharing some of my favorites with you today.

There are so many creative ideas, and I’m always asking myself, “Why didn’t I think of that”? LOL

Rachel, First, thanks so much for sharing my back to school supply cake! Now, let's talk about those amazing hydrangea blooms and the gorgeous colors! I was really gazing at them and how lovely they were and then I read that they were all from the same plant!!!! WOW! That is one fantastic plant! It is like a bouquet of beautiful flowers all in one plant! I cannot wait until this pool in the backyard gets finished and I can have some flowers and nice plants again instead of a pile of dirt! Have a great week!
