The Last Bouquet



Kinda like the last dance! More on that topic soon.

The flowers are so gorgeous and I am taking them to a retirement home so others can enjoy their beauty!

I am a very big fan of "random acts of kindness" ~  however, I do not usually talk about it.

Life is good. God is good.

I hope you are enjoying your day. I know I am. ;)

I Won A Table Centerpiece

As hard as I try to get back to regular blogging, it just isn't happening. I think I may be making it too difficult for myself because I am always wanting to make it as interesting as I can and also include photos! Life has been rather hectic with medical issues and trying to find enough time to "please everyone" and yet have time for myself to "catch my breath", occasionally. I am certain that the majority of you are relating to what I am trying to say. So, with that said, I will try to pop in for a visit a little more often. It seems as though once you get out of the rhythm of daily (or almost daily) blogging something happens to your brain and you spend more time thinking about "must blog" than doing it!

As you know, I can never have too many flowers or garden related things in my life. Look at this lovely wildflower plant that I won at a Ladies Day Luncheon given by a California organization called SIRS (Sons In Retirement) this past week. It was a very nice affair with lots of lovely people. Yes, there always are social events to enjoy but it takes some effort to find the time to keep MSM happy.

The name of this plant in Clarkia Amoena "Godetia" and it is spectacular! It is an annual and I hope it will reseed next year. 



That's it for today.

Wishing you a Fabulous Day.

Is Spring Coming

I sure hope so! We have all talked about the interesting weather patterns this year. These blossoms were picked yesterday and today the tree is covered with SNOW. Not in my yard but very close by. The weather man says that there will be SNOW at my home by the end of the week - - - and he may be right. It is raining and very dark outside and it is the middle of the day. Is the weatherman ever wrong?

I love these blossoms and I wish I had some of these in my garden. Maybe, someday I will. I have been having some very busy days with doing one thing or another. But, I have found some evening time to crochet on a Ripple Afghan that I am enjoying mostly when I am watching television. It is such a great pattern for that type of needle work. I have made many afghans similar to this throughout the years. And I really like this particular pattern. You can find it at Susan B's Ripple Afghan pattern site.

You all know how much I love flowers and my garden. Well, this is a collage of  photos taken today of the beautiful flowers from over a week ago when we provided florist flowers for the church alter. They are still very perfect at every angle. Enjoy them with me!

That's it for today.
Hope you are having good things happening in your life today and always.
