I'd like to say a huge THANK YOU...

These flowers are for you.
The McCartney Rose and Lady's Mantle

I just have to say how grateful I am for all your kind and thoughtful comments these past few days after the death of my beloved cat.

I have been blog hopping and I cannot believe how many great blogs are out there.
The talented writing and beautiful photographic images astound me.

It's a great place to be.

I did some garden clean up and my poppies had fallen over in a gale yesterday...
boats were blown ashore and the Coast Guard was kept busy with pan pans and maydays.
Today it was calm...
I felt calm within my self as well.
I am regaining perspective.

I do not like waste, I recycle
and so I made something out of what could have been compost.

I think this "Poppie Bouquet" works
especially when married in a Sklo vase of pink glass.

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

  5. A great wisdom from JFK. It is You, we have to thank for cheering our every day, Hostess. Your posts are so full of optimism, even on a dark day. No wonder your marriage has lasted 36 years. It is a long period when looking ahead, but does it not seem just like yesterday, looking back? Please keep on blogging. We all need You!
