The Glory of An Autumn Garden






But friendship is the breathing rose, 
with sweets in every fold.
Oliver Wendell Holmes

My favorite rose in the garden.  It's hardy and beautifully dainty at the same time.  It withstands the summer heat and the autumn chill.













The aster greets us as we pass 
With her faint smile 
Sarah Helen Power Whitman

Butterflies, bees and moths  in the garden.  Don't you just love it? And the Aster has become one of my favorite flowers




The burning bush is oh so lovely when it's color is brilliant red, but seeing her change so gloriously allows me to appreciate her even more for all the labor that goes into it. 


Earth laughs in flowers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson









This wee hibiscus is sheltered in the bushes and even now is budding again.  How I have come to love these creations.

I'd rather have roses on my table,
than diamonds on my neck.
tEmma Goldman

And that pretty much says it all!!!  Have a wonderful week and don't forget to give the Glory to God!

What a Weekend!


Forty-seven years ago today Ron and I married.  
It's been quite a ride.  It's good to spend your life 
with your best friend.


 We were at The Woods  (Saint Mary-of-the Woods) yesterday to deliver books for the annual used book sale  by the Sisters of Providence. It is also the campus for Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.  Proud to say I'm an Alumnus.  It's always good to "go home to The Woods."



Finally, on Saturday, I was able to capture (on film) and photo of a bee pollinating the hibiscus.  Can you tell I'm totally captivated by the hibiscus...just cannot get enough of it.

Hoping all had as grand a weekend as I have.  God bless you all and...

Hibiscus Beauty



Earlier in the spring I was sure this hibiscus bush was dead.  We had such a hard winter and my knowledge of the  hibiscus being nil is was sure there was no hope for it.  Well, as you can see I was wrong.  There was nothing but dead branches and so I cut them to the ground.  Soon, to my surprise and delight, green leaves started to sprout.  Oh, my goodness, I am grateful for the resilience of the hibiscus.  Beautiful, though it is, it is strong and sturdy.

What a beautiful star I have found in the center of this blossom.  Nature's beauty is indispensable in the light of hope.
