It’s funny how quiet it is at 7 in the morning when the neighbors have been up partying late. Last night I heard voices and fireworks until past midnight, but this morning it was peaceful. I heard just the birds and saw our little resident bunny who was too fast for my camera.
I found some “fireworks” in my yard this morning. It’s fun to have firework flowers that bloom around the 4th of July!
Bee Balm(Monarda) comes in lots of colors, and after it’s done blooming leaves seed stalks for migrating birds. I will warn you, it can quickly overtake a garden if not pulled for control.
But, like a lot of other flowers, make great flowers to share with your neighbors.
Flowers from the Allium family look like sparklers and fireworks that burst into a flower.
Johnny Jump-ups add bright color all season and the streaking pattern in the center is very firework like.
And as for Lavender… Sparklers anyone? Love to grow and harvest lavender? See this post.
I love that these flowers add some natural fireworks!
For more patriotic ideas, see how I made these luminaries out of old glass light covers.
For a party, a Fourth of July drink station, and, these fun less than 10 minute firework dish towels.
Happy Independence Day and God Bless America!
