Flower Arrangements

Flower Arrangements for
Today I share several arrangements that may be suitable for Church Displays and the many color combinations that were used to make these arrangements.  Most of these arrangements contained a majority of cut flowers that were available in Middle Georgia from the flower vendors.

I hope you enjoyed!!!

Feed The Birds

Appreciate Our Wildlife
 The above bird feeder picture is included to show a product that is available to feed the birds and to also prevent the squirrels from eating all the food.  When a bird wants to eat they place themselves on the perch, however when a squirrel gets on the perch they are heavy enough to cause the grid to slip down and prevent them from having access to the bird seed.  I have found this type of feeder to be most effective.
