Floral Friday

Happy Friday and almost 3 day weekend!! It has been over 100 here in Texas this week but surprisingly my yard is doing well so I thought I would share some of those today.

Pots by the front door

Lantana looks lovely!


More lantana I love the little buds in this one.


Mint and rosemary.

Considering the weather I am very happy with how things are looking and I am already planning what I can plant for the Fall.

I am also loving this orange and cucumber water right now ...sweet, refreshing and yummy!

I hope you have a lazy holiday weekend!

One of My Favorite Things...

Detox water! It's so easy, it's pretty and it's good for you! All you need is a cucumber, a lemon and a few springs of mint.

I can usually get two pitchers out of these ingredients. I like more cucumber in mine than lemon. I only use half a cucumber and 1small lemon. Then once that pitcher is gone I leave the cucumber and lemon in it and refill. Now, I will replace the mint so it's fresh and strong. 

See isn't it pretty? I drink it first thing in the morning. They say it will aid in digestion and keep your skin looking fresh and young...who doesn't need that? Plus I like how it looks sitting in my frig when I open the door. 

I also like to use the mint in my tea...fresh stuff is the best! Sometimes I feel like I need to detox and refresh there is so much in the world today that is exhausting and draining and we should take the time to do good things for our bodies and our souls. This weekend I have lots of time scheduled with my sweet friends so I am looking forward to refreshing my humor and possibly my dance moves ;)

What do you like in your water??
