Sunday Blooms Remembered



Some Sunday blooms for a rainy day.
There is a promise of a beautiful week ahead
for gardening and time outdoors soaking up
some sunlight and warmer temperatures.




How far you go in life depends on your being tender with
the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with
the striving, and tolerant of the weak and strong.
Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
~ George Washington Carver ~












































Happy Gardening Everyone!

Gorgeous as usual! I have been out feeding my roses. They look so ugly now, it is amazing how beautiful they become.

Very pretty blooms... spring has sprung in your garden! If I forgot to mention it on my last visit ... your header is stunning!

Beautiful pictures Lona, it's so great to see the colourful blooms of summer. Is the peony 'Bowl of Beauty'? I am planning to add one this summer. :)

I'm often surprised by the unexpected "wildlife" that appears in my photos--nice to see that I'm not alone in snapping the critters!
