Good morning Friends ~ Here it is another Friday. Time is zipping right along.
We had thunderstorms yesterday afternoon, which has given us another blast of cool air and for that I am grateful. It is supposed to get down to 53 and feel like 48 tonight.
This post is filled with mainly macros, hence the title of this post.
First is not macro though and is a photo of our big palm with the morning sky behind.
Ok, here we go for the blooms.
Sweetly scented begonias with big round leaves.
This is a Clerodendrum that we down here call ‘Bleeding Hearts”
This is a buddleia that I’ve had almost a year now and it is still alive and growing
This is gazania or blanket flower. Self sows and a winner in my humble cottage gardens.
Ground orchid blooms
This is an unknown orchid bought last spring.
Lowly periwinkles that grow like a weed down here in s.e. FL.
I have pink and white.
Spanish needle blossom
Thunbergia erecta in purple and white. I love the yellow throats.
This is related to the clock vine
On November 17 2012, when my dear husband was ill and a couple of weeks before he went to his heavenly home, I came home from work and as always headed straight for the bedroom to check on him. He said to me, “The verse of the day is, ‘Cast all your care upon Him’.
That verse is still a verse for me each and every day. The Him in this verse is God, and the rest of the verse says, ‘for He careth for you’.
I had this in my mind to write before I headed off to work this morning, but didn’t have time to get it all done.
This verse was perfect for me today because when I got to work I found out that my friends next door had been hit by thieves right after I left yesterday afternoon. They have two shops next to each other, and she had gone to the other shop where her husband and nephew were, leaving her purse sitting in her desk chair, which is behind a partition. We were having stormy weather then too and she was in the other shop a few minutes. When she got back her purse was gone, her lap top computer and their two cell phones. They called the cops and they came to get the info. There is a surveillance camera up on a building across the street and later the cops called to say they had seen a vehicle and a couple that looked suspicious to them. I also had a suspicious message left on the answering machine where I work asking what time we close, and reported it to my friends and they told the cops. They told my friend to come over to see if she could get the number off my phone there, she did, so maybe that will help in the case.
I do not want to be scared to go to work. This news is one of the cares that came into my life that I am to cast upon Him. Worry accomplishes nothing!
Say a prayer for my friends that things will work out for them with this. They got in touch with their bank, credit card people etc. The husband said it’s awful because they feel so violated. They were both exhausted when I left this afternoon, from the stress of it all.
Love and hugs to all of you,
