Flower Power

There are some gorgeous flowers blooming this month and I want to share them with you!

Dutch Iris

Dutch Iris

I love the dutch iris.  So pretty.



A lovely rose, this one is yellow, but faces to an ivory white.



I’ve always loved honeysuckle, breaking one off and pulling the stamen out thru the flower to gather that ‘tiny drop’ of nectar that is so yummy!

Pink Rose

Pink Rose

A lovely soft pink rose.  So Pretty!



I’m not sure what this lovely flowering shrub is. It’s about 8′ tall and covered with these lovely blossoms.  A dogwood?  or something else?

Have a great week, and I’ll show you some more lovely pics soon!  Hugs.. Ellen

My “Angel” GrandMother

For Inez.

IF ROSES GROW IN HEAVEN, LORD PLEASE PICK A BUNCH FOR ME, place them in my GrandMothers arms and tell her they’re from me and tell her i love her and miss her and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile because remembering her is easy, I do it everyday but theres an ache in my heart …

I got this post from my cousin Charlotte’s facebook status when she posted it this morning for her ‘Angel’ Mother RuthAnn (gone way too soon).

Thinking back, I am so very blessed that my Grandmother shouldered the task of raising me when she didn’t have to. She did the absolute best she could for me and I still shudder when I think of the possible alternative paths my life could have followed. Thank you Grandmother! I miss you!

Love to all the Mothers and “Angel” Mothers out there.

HUGS.. Ellen
