Friendships and Flowers

Thought for today:
In the plan of God,a friendship is a touch of heaven on earth.
And we can all bring a touch of heaven 
into someone's life.
Mark Connolly
With this thought in mind I bring to you some of our flowers.
It is my prayer that these will  bring a touch of heaven to your life.
Gathering nectar.
A small part of our Lupin patch.

Another busy bee.
 The bees love the Lupins and can be seen around them all the time.
Have a beautiful day.

Your lupins are so pretty, Ruth. The bumblebees are such gentle bees, when I was little I thought I should be able to pet them. Thank you for the beautiful friendship flowers. Diane

Such crystal clear lupine! I love the buzzing of the bees wings - I can almost hear the sound!
