"Flaunt your Red" (a little late)

Hi guys! Please excuse my tardiness....I tried all day yesterday to get this post up! Blogger is giving me fits! Stacey at "Poofing the pillows" is hosting "Flaunt Your red" for Nancy. Thanks Stacey! I will be posting my parent's deck next, I just couldn't miss out on the red!
How about that motocycle post? Did I surprise some of you? Kevin was a little upset I didn't take a good picure of the bike. lol...He's so proud of it...always shining it up.Ugggg.....You might be seeing more of it in the future.
On with the red...

Red Geraniums in a colorful pot...look how they are growing towards the sun.
Red begonias around the birdbath. By the way, I picked up that iron ball today at Hobby Lobby and super glued the bird (I already had) on top. It just needed something!
Red pentas....butterflies love these!

Red hibiscus....I wish it bloomed everyday.

And my new red striped hammock! We vowed not to buy anything else for the backyard this year, but we decided this was a must! Boy is it comfy! Much better than the old swingset we had here!

Have a wonderful weekend!!! It's going to be near 90 degrees here tomorrow. It's getting hot!

Hi Kristen, :)
Yeah! You are FlauntingYR!
Blogger definitly has a few quirks lately.

I adore all your RED photos! The hammock is so pretty and looks like a great place to hang out.
I wish we had a place to hang one.

I really love the way you hung iron candle sconces on your brick outside. That looks fabulous!

~Beautiful REDS my friend.
Have a wonderful weekend.
~Melissa :)

Alex is taking the week off and he's going to re-stain the fence finally. WHEW! It's alot of work but it really needs it again.

Melissa Miller said...

I forgot to thank you for your nice compliment on my red dress and the entire post. You are too kind. :)

Melissa Miller said...

Oh wait...me again. :)

I just realized the hammock sits on the grass? That is cool!
I'll have to take a look at them at LOWES...:)

Stacey said...

Hi Kristen! I was just surfing around and found your post! Loving the flowers and the hammock. :) I will link you right now!

Thank you for joining us for Flaunt your Red. We will have a drawing tomorrow for a prize.

Kristen, your flowers are beautiful, but that hammock just looks like THE greatest place to relax. If you find me in the hammock in your yard some morning, don't be surprised, and please don't wake me! laurie

I love the hammock; my is on the covered porch upstairs off the great room. But I think it will be moved down stairs on the back patio covered porch. I love to lay out there at night. I am thinking of putting a black wrought iron swing on the top back porch. Your yard is georgous.

fiberdoodles said...

Kristen your backyard is so beautiful and of course red is my favorite color, so a girl can never have enough red flowers. Thank you for sharing with us!

Stay cool,

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

You definitely have a green thumb Kristen and it goes so well with your red! :) Love those geraniums.

Love the one the butterflies are attracted to..I'm not familiar with that one.

I know you love that pretty and comfy hammock. Thanks for sharing.

raxx a day in the life said...

Hi Kristen, I love all your reds! I just love flowering plants, they give your spirit and instant lift!

OOh the hammock looks comfy!

Tomarie said...

Hi Kristen!
I love what you did with your birdbath! And the hammock looks toooo inviting!...especially with a good book and cool glad of wine! lol
It's like a steambath here too! :-) L~

A Hint of Home said...

The flowers are beautiful. Love all the reds. I'll have to try those Pentas. They are pretty.
It's been hot here, too. We just went to the mtns. for a couple of days and it was 20 to 30 degrees cooler. Love that mtn. air.

Angie said...

Beautiful! I need to get some of those same plants to get some red in my yard!

nicolette said...

I agree, that hammock is a must! It is the best thing I've seen in a long time.

Hi Kristen,
Thanks for coming by and your nice compliment on our home office. I had just recently added the new drapes. Boy did it need them badly. The old ones were ugly to the max.

I hope all is going well with you. I don't see as many posts from you lately. I know it's alot more fun to be out in all the nice weather instead.
So many bloggers I met when I first started seven months ago are no longer posting at all.
It really does take up lots of time I know.
I haven't heard from Lynne,Lynette,Tardevil,Loriand Kristen(Nothin')in sooo long.
Sigh....Maybe they will all come back soon.

I hope you have wonderful weekend.
~Melissa :)

Miss Janice said...

The flowers are beautiful and I love your hammock. I'm kind of thinking about getting one!

Melissa Miller said...

I understand. If it wasn't for weekly events I would have run out of things to post months ago as well. I've been really burned out and tired lately.
It really is time consuming and impossible to keep up with everyone's posts.

Have a great weekend.
~Melissa ;)

I think I'm actually going to create a TT this week for the first time in a long while.

Tootsie said...

late or not...it is fabulous!!! love it!

Oh the flowers are beautiful, Kristen! You did a good job Flaunting your RED! Nancy
