Sunshine, wind, roses, and thank you

Good Saturday morning Folks,

The sun is shining and we are having lots of wind.  The temps are cooler too. We are thankful. The wind chimes are making their sweet music.

My heart goes out to those who have lost loved ones and homes. in Jamaica, Haiti and Cuba. I hope and pray Sandy does not turn into the storm that they are predicting.

My post was so long the other day that I didn’t get to put all the roses plus a couple other plants in it, so I’ll post them here today.

Ti plant and it’s sweet little flowers.

Please accept our heartfelt thank you for your prayers and thoughts this past week. They mean so much to both of us. I broke down crying reading out loud to DH, (dear husband). We don’t have it as bad as some people do, but when we all go through different things in our lives, they seem big and bad. Prayers and good wishes never hurt any of us, so thank you, thank you.

Have a great weekend ~ FlowerLady Lorraine

we should cast the gift of a loving thought into the heart of a friend,

that would be giving as the angels give.

Lovely blooms. Love the first couple plants, so different and pretty. Glad the storm didn't do any damage your direction.

It says a lot about your character as you tend to your roses in the face of adversity. Way to go!

Goodness you did get a lot of beautiful photos of your flowers. So nice to see your roses as all the ones here go to sleep for winter. Hoping the storm doesn't get as bad as predicted as well. Rest and take care.

Your blog is my favorite place to hang out after the leaves fall and winter arrives. The blooms are such a cheery bright spot. Just beautiful. Hoping that the storm passes without incident.

I pray that you continue to stay safe. Your flowers look so wonderful. When I truly retire I would love to find a climate where the variety of flowers could be so diverse and to be so many.

Corner Gardener Sue said...

Thanks for sharing your lovely blooms. Mine are about finished. I love the spider web in some of the photos of the shrimp plant, which is probably my favorite bloom of these photos.

Amrita said...

Dear Lady, you r blog is so educational for me. I am learning the names of various plants and roses. Never heard of the Shrimp Plant. Your photos are delightful.

I do hope the storm has abated

The flowers are beautiful and a treat for me to see. Our hard freeze took care of things here.

I am so sorry about the AV; if it isn't one thing; it is 10! We have gone through that phase recently and I do hope it is finished.

Glad cooler weather is coming so you will have a break until the time is better for either replacement or repairs. I was told the average life of new appliances is 8 years! What a difference between yesteryear and today.

Enjoy your Sunday.

I'm so glad it's cooler for you. That is definitely good news. . . . Your pictures are lovely, as usual. All the roses are delightful.

Take care....

More beautiful flowers to brighten my day. Glad you didn't get too much damage from Sandy's wind and rain. We only got wind here. I do hope she's not as bad as they're expecting.

Enjoy the cooler weather as you tend your beautiful flowers.

Sounds as if your world isn't just raining, it's pouring.

The wonderful thing about blogging is the friendships, and support from other bloggers that help everyone get through their days.

Is that morning dew on the "Prosperity" roses? Very beautiful.

The wind has started to pick up here. We are supposed to get winds starting now through tomorrow AM. Thanks for thinking of us, FL. Your flowers are amazing as usual. Will check in after it is done. Hoping we keep our power! xxoo Nancy

That George MacDonald saying is a great one. Hope all is getting better.

Uh oh. What did I miss? I'm going to go back and read your previous post. I'm so sorry I've been away. Your flower photos amaze me. They're gorgeous. Take care.
