Flower Friday: Blanket Flower and a Rainbow – February 9th

I learned about Flower Friday last year from Lorilin@Bugbugbooks and have been having a blast sharing some flower pics. Please check out Lorilin’s blog if you haven’t already for book reviews and more!

Today’s picture is Blanket Flower. I have this growing in multiple spots around our house and greenhouse. It’s a perennial and so easy to grow!

For a bonus I included this rainbow photo that I took in the summer. I found it this morning and it got me thinking about warmer days.

It was a double rainbow, but the other had faded considerably by the time I got outside. I love the way the sun is creeping down and only shining on the tops of the trees.

Thanks for checking out Flower Friday. I hope none of you got snowed in last night! We didn’t get slammed as bad as I thought we were going to. Feel free to share comments and have a wonderful weekend!

    Blanket flowers ❤ ❤ <3! Anything related to the daisy family and I'm in love. Especially love the two toned look they have going on. Have a good weekend my friend! I'm sure we'll be talking at some point. 🙂

      1. It is very easy to grow. We redid all our gardens and they got dug up. I am loving the warmth right now, especially because my hometown got 18 inches of snow in 24 hours, then freezing rain on top of it. Don’t miss that.
