On the way through Brodhead, there is a home/barn that always decorates the end of their driveway. At Christmastime, there is a red pickup truck with Santa sitting in the drivers seat (I have posted pictures of this before) and in the summertime there is usually a pink bicycle decorated.
In addition to the pink bicycle, there was a baby carriage filled with flowers and a baby doll head sticking up in it. It was such an awesome display.
The flowers in my garden are looking so beautiful. The orange tiger lilies next to the purple wildflowers are stunning.
One of my favorites are alliums. Especially the hairy ones!
