A Colorful way to greet your guests

Who would have imagined that these..... 
could look so beautiful, vibrant and colorful?
My Crepe Mrytle stems (which I never would have thought to cut) in various colors from the front yard
placed in a straw tote with a small chalkboard sign
And perched on a chair near the door to Welcome You!
For more beautiful outdoor gardening ideas, I invite you to visit my Flip Flop Gardner Series (which is also located in my sidebar).

  1. This looks great! My crepe myrtle bloomed really early this year--I was hoping for a second round, but it didn't happen.
