I'm back,after a week away from posting.
I have survived a difficult week,but that is now in the past,and I want to focus on the present and the future.
Today I share with you a few flowers from my garden and one other one.
This pretty Columbine grows right outside my door.
I had forgotten that I had one in this color,so I am really enjoying it now.
Also just beside the Columbine is one of my Fern-leaf Peonies.
These plants were a gift from a friend,so they are extra special.
Last year they never bloomed.but I have been enjoying their pretty flowers this year.
This little fountain stands at the end of my new flower bed.This is where we used to have a small pond,but I have turned the area into a flower bed and just added this fountain.
Finally,this pretty little bouquet greeted me at the restaurant where my friends took me for breakfast,for my birthday.
My good friend had taken the flowers there before she picked me up.Also greeting me there was a brightly colored Happy Birthday balloon.
I am so thankful for friends,who care enough to go the extra mile to make my day special.Many of you have done just that over the past months and I am very grateful for your friendships.
Though for today:
Tender little memories
Of some word or deed
Give us strength and courage
When we are in need.
