What is this?????

First of all...how come every time I make soup and put it in the microwave I forget that it explodes.  How many times must I clean it out before I remember to put a paper towel over it??????

Crap.

OK...on to the reason of this post.   Who knows what this flower/weed is???
It is growing all over the back yard.

It is purdy.....and last a long time in a vase.

See...
A week old.....

One more thing....
Here is a dining room I am working on.  Betwixt on seats.  2 orange host and hostess chairs.  Walls are already a pale yellow with yellow silk curtains.  Seagrass.
I ordered those blue pots from Wisteria.  One came broken.  No worries, they are shipping another.

I LOVE THEM.
Can I keep?????

Happy Wednesday.

Remember my lately obsession about green?
Stay tuned for a green giveaway on Friday.

So glad I'm not the only person who ALWAYS forgets to cover soup before I stick it in the microwave! I'll be blabbing away about something while the soup is cooking, then we'll hear an explosion from the microwave and I'll open the door to find the whole inside dripping. my husband is always like "Seriously?!" Don't know why I never learn.
I don't know what your weed is, but it's really pretty! So is the room you're planning!

I think it's an ageratum, maybe Blue Horizon, but I'm not sure. Do I win a prize if I'm right?

Kerry said...

Love dining room board. I think orange looks so great with blue. I am obsessed with rusty orange the way you are green.

Lauren@BaylorSays... said...

Am also obsessed with green in a big big way right now.

Hey, you know why it doesn't bother me that I always forget to cover my soup with a paper towel in the microwave? Because I couldn't care less if my microwave is covered in 10 flavors of soup grime. Yay Type Z personality!

Spaghetti sauce explodes too and is disgusting to clean up. Good times. No idea what the flower/weed is, but wish it grew in my yard. Love your design scheme as always!

The enchanted home said...

Love green also.....don't have a clue about what flower this might be, but you sure made it look beautiful!
Love the mood board, gorgeous!

Beautiful Flowers!

That's some good lookin weed! :)

Lisa said...

I think it's called Blue Mist. It is pretty!

Beth said...

Im a watchin for the green give away-the flowers are pretty cool!

Kelly said...

That sure is a pretty weed/flower. Let's just call it a wild flower. Ha! Isn't it strange that a weed has no trouble growing when it's completely neglected and yet anything you plant and TRY to grow, doesn't always thrive?

I love that rug -- is it seagrass -- looks different? Is it available locally??

You don't see yellow used in designs much anymore. I can't wait to how this turns out. I bet it's going to pretty.

Rene said...

Ageratum. Lucky you to have something still blooming.

Rene said...

Woops. I almost missed that gorgeous dining room. Going to be good....I can just feel it.

Anonymous said...

Ageratum is the name of the flower. If it's the old fashioned tall variety that blooms only in the fall, it's a perennial and will return each year; if it's the shorter variety that has bloomed all summer, it's an annual and the frost will kill it and you must replant in the spring.

Kim@Chattafabulous said...

Hardy ageratum. Should come back every year with little care. Lucky you! Love the design plan for the dining room, Shayray!

Holly said...

Betwixt is really one of my favorites - I love that it's so versatile. And I love your giveaways - can't wait to see what you got! And you've made perfect use of that ageratum in your home.
