Friend in the Garden

This is a little plant stand I have outside…

Today, I noticed there was someone looking at me…

Can you see him?




I almost missed him, but as I walked by, I stopped abruptly
(they’ve jumped on me before, you know!)



And sure enough, there he was,
very comfortably enjoying his home…




I don’t particularly like frogs,
but I didn’t have the heart to “evict” this one
out of his little home…
…I think maybe I’ll give it a day or two for him to leave on his own…




Maybe when I water the plants,
it’ll be too much for him
and he’ll find another home.


He does look comfortable, doesn’t he?!

I now walk   s-l-o-w-l-y   by,
so he won’t get the idea to spring up on me…
…just to say hello, maybe?
No, probably more like, “I’m trying to scare you so you’ll stay away
and leave me alone!”

I think it’ll work.

Well, it’s nice to find a friend…
even if it’s only a little froggie. 🙂

Happy gardening,

Just before my husband mowed the grass, I gathered some of the “weeds” that had grown…



I made a little “bouquet”

(I hope they’re not poisonous!) 🙂




and placed them in a glass.




The colors look so pretty!




They brightened up the place.


Happy Thursday!

Pink Blooms

I have not posted in 11 days…
I’ve missed you, friends.
First, I had to attend a training and had no internet available.
Then, 2 days ago, I had another migraine.  I’ve never had them so close together before.  But I am thankful that this time I did not have to go to the ER.

Now, on to more JOYful topics!  🙂

The place where this training was held was rural and a very pretty setting.

I was able to step outside with my camera for just a few minutes during one of the breaks and take a few photos…


The color.  The delicate petals.




It was not a rose bush, but it was just as beautiful…and it was covered in blooms!




I only had a few minutes…




I could stare at this for a while.  So beautiful.  It doesn’t have the sweet scent of a rose, but it is so lovely.




The bush had so very many!  There were some that had fallen and the ground was covered with them.  Even there, they were beautiful!

Does anybody know what type of flowers these are?
I thought I could google it, but after a while, I gave up when I couldn’t find the exact match.  It’s a big bush, tall, and covered with these flowers.


It’s good to be back… Y’all have a fantastic weekend!!

Love to you,

It seems that my plants know that summer is ending and they have decided to bloom one last time before settling down for cooler weather.  I can’t wait for fall and the coolness in the air, but as long as the flowers are blooming, I won’t complain about the weather.


Saturday is officially the first day of fall and from what I hear on the news, some of you are already experiencing it, while others are expectantly waiting for it.



Wherever you are, go outside if you can and enjoy the weather!

Have a terrific weekend,
