A Few Flowers For Monday

by Joanne on July 6, 2009

And we begin again….

After a very enjoyable 3 day weekend, it’s back to work.  Susan is taking a vacation this week but it shouldn’t be too busy since the week following the 4th of July seems to be a popular holiday week. 

It was back in the gym this morning working through a good chest and bicep workout.  I warmed up with 15 minutes of Elliptical and my weight workout took about 35 minutes.  4 Sets each exercise.  20 – 18 -15 – and 12 were the repetitions.  Bench press at an incline. Incline flies. Incline dumbbell presses. Cable Chest Press.  For biceps, same routine:  Rope curls, Two arm curls, One arm curls, Concentration Curls.  Shane and I then went on a 3.75 mile jog.  We had a good 6 mile run yesterday so we took our time today.

Instead of a review of healthy morning eats, I’ll show you some of our garden flowers.







Which is your favorite?  I like the purple one. I don’t know the names of many flowers…would the purple be a petunia?  Guess it’s time to get the flower book out.

Hey There! Have a great day!

    Not sure what the top and bottom flowers are, but I’m fairly certain the middle one is a Pink Begonia. I only know that because I bought one for my mom as a Mother’s Day gift 😉

    Beautiful pics btw.

      Hi Joanne,
      What great pics of the garden flowers, they’re so sharp & clear. You are right about the purple flower being a petunia, and the top is a New Guinea impatiens with the middle appearing to be Sweet William, from the dianythus family. They usually are tall, about 12″-15″ high, with ten or so tiny blooms on one stem.
      Hope your week w/o Sue goes smoothly…
