And what are we topping that yummy pound cake with? Sticking tongue out

Laura, awhile back you were asking about blue flowers - what about blue hydrangeas or blue delphiniums? I think they are both beautiful and both come in a wide variety and shades of blue - they would make grand arrangements.

Hmm. watermelon tea sounds interesting... but I think I'll have the jasmine Big Grin

Ya know, I've had a jasmine plant for about 8 years now and it has only bloomed one time, just a few flowers. I guess it needs more sun but I'm afraid in this Tx heat it wouldn't make it in full sun! sigh!

I have a star jasmine in a pot and it blooms every year profusely, but must bring it inside in the winter. Fortunate to have it survive a bad case of mealy bugs on 2 occasions. Hope you are luckier next year with ours.

I think she has decided to use hydrangeas, or at least for this week! LOLOL

Man, I gotta stop looking at the food pic here! No cake here, but that chocolate ice cream is calling, and its a bit late for that, but I'm going for it anyway!

Watermelon tea does sound interesting, my sister makes a raspberry and strawberrie tea. Her oldest granddaughter use to call it freckled tea! LOL

Thanks again for all of the ideas!

The watermelon tea is actually really good, it has dried peices of the melon in it so it makes a great iced tea!

Christine, maybe your Jasmine needs some iron> Mine did terrible until I fed it some iron and now its taking off!

Candee, I love star jasmine too, its so fragrant too! Mmm....

Laura, glad to hear she has decided what flowers to use! Hydrangeas are beautiful and you can stud them with pearls or little jewels and such if you want to dress them up a bit more.

I'll soon be coming into the season of arrangements. I have been busy crocheting all through our mild winter and look forward to sticking flowers in a vase. What has everyone else been up to?

it has been a long time since we have chatted at the flower pot cafe.

Candee - how did you do with all the seeds you got at the seed swap?

I participated at the seed swap over at Ella's Garden on Cubits, and got a ton of seeds. I wintersowed about 60, but only got about 10% success. I need to refine my seed sowing Rolling on the floor laughing
mainly, I need to remember to water.........
