Flowers and Old Jars

For the last 7 days both of my computers have been at a repair person's shop getting repaired after some melt-down activity that was actually caused by a simple problem.
A week away from my on-line goings - on was pretty intense for me... mostly because I missed reading all my favorite blogs.
 As a result of my 7-day hiatus, I did get a LOT of gardening done.... and a lot of little detail stuff around the place got taken care of. And I took lots of photos of pretty sights around the house/farm/garden.... but I'm not going to dump them all at once. Here are some pics I took with flowers in old jars and an antique wooden tray I was using as a centerpiece on my dining table.

 Most of these jars I have dug out of very old junk "dumps" on our farm. The tray is something my mom got in her junking. The flowers are all from my yard; and some of them are actually weeds.

Beautiful! Are the pink flowers sweet peas?

Yes! They are so lovely. I have sweet pea vine that grows all over the place. We've even accidentally mowed it down, and we can't kill it. I'm trying to get it to grow on things. up off the ground.

These are so cute! I love seeing flowers in cute jars. Great to hear that you recycled used jars and used it creatively. Great job! :)

It reminds me a bit of Karen's wedding years ago. Remember all those little tiny vases?
