Flowers For A Rainy Day,Or Any Day

It is a rainy day here today, but that is good. It was getting very dry, so the rain is welcome and for me, at least, so are the cooler temperatures.
With these things in mind,I thought that some of the flowers from my garden this past summer would be in order. I will let the flowers speak for themselves and will add some quotes that I have found.

True wisdom begins and ends with God.

Be an encourager.The world has plenty of critics already.

Friends are God’s way of taking care of us.

A flower doesn’t think of competing with the flower next to it. 
It just blooms

This pot of Pansies was blooming on my neighbours yard.

I also found this beautiful dark lily on the same neighbours yard. 
I must say that I have some of the most wonderful neighbours, not just because they allow me to photograph their flowers, but just because of who they are.

Closing Thought:
Life is Like a Camera
Just focus on what’s important,
capture the good times.
Develop from the negatives 
and if things don’t turn out - 
just take another shot.


  1. That blue flower is such a beauty. I like the line in your closing thought that says, "Develop from the negatives."

  2. Oh Ruth!!! What a delightful blog post!!! I love your flowers and all their beautiful colors!! So cheerful and pretty!! Thank you sweet friend!!!

  3. These are gorgeous! I like Friends are the way of God taking care of us!

  4. That lily is a dark beauty, so unusual! Your yard must be so beautiful. Again, you have found very good quotes! Perfect and gorgeous morning glory.

  5. Your pictures and words are beautiful.
    LOVE the closing thought!!

  6. beautiful thoughts and gorgeous images. i always try to lift people up, to be happy and positive. i find i am happier that way as well!!

    i have that closing thought printed, and hanging in my office - it's a really good one!!!

  7. Breathtaking flowers with great words of blessings.

  8. Thanks for sharing the beauty of your flower show.

  9. What a wonderful post dear Ruth. Beautiful flowers and quotes. I especially like the last quote.

    Have a great week ~ FlowerLady

  10. Ruth, It's a rainy day, here too! We definitely needed in. It probably marks the end of the warmer temperatures that we have been enjoying and we'll be moving in Autumn! Sad to see the Summer go, it was a good one, for us anyway!
    Your garden was very pretty. Your images are too!

  11. Thank you, Ruth, for sharing both your beautiful flowers and wonderful words of wisdom.

  12. No only are your flower images stunningly beautiful but I love all the quotes ou have added in Ruth.

  13. I always try to focus on the bauty I am seeing in my life. When I am out with my camera, my mind no longer focuses on worries and troubles.

  14. These are all blooming lovelies! But as blue is my favourite colour, the blue flower really captured my attention!

  15. Simply stunning Ruth!!
    My favorites today are the first geranium and the blue morning glory! Both of which don't do well in this hot, humid environment here in south texas!!

  16. I have missed your wonderful photos and inspirational quotes and words, and that last quote about the camera and life is so true. so happy to be back and reading your blog...

  17. These are all beautiful but that red geranium wins the prize in my book. Such a gorgeous red. Have a beautiful day, Ruth.

  18. Beautiful, as always....praying your day is beautiful too!

  19. Hello, I just came upon your blog, Oh my gosh the flowers are BEAUTIFUL :-)

    Blessings, Renee @
