Red, White & Blue

Our flower garden started a 4th of July celebration last week. 
Explosions of red, white and blue began popping out in every direction. 
And we didn't even have to wait until dark!

Two young, budding photographers captured a few of these patriotic portraits 
just in time for a little fireworks celebration right here in our blog.
So, if your annual 4th of July parade has been rained out.. pull up a chair, roll out a blanket, find some barbecue, spray on a little insect repellent for atmosphere and celebrate with us.

This 4th of July garden celebration has us singing in the studio today and we hope you'll join along.

"God bless America,
Land that I love.
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above.
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God bless America, My home sweet home
God bless America, My home sweet home."

Celebrating Independence Day,
The Velvet Lime Girls

P.S. A special thank-you to Meredith and Saxon Skinner, Laura's niece and nephew, for letting us see the garden celebrations through their lens.
