May Flowers

It's good to be back blogging again. A big, hearty THANK YOU to the wonderful souls that are still here visiting.


The orange bokeh in the background is from some rather large day lilies. It looks like the
coneflowers are rocking out to a day lily concert. 


Female Eastern Pondhawk

Processed with a Shadowhouse Creation texture called RC-9.
Sorry, after an extensive search, I can't seem to find the link to this texture.
For those of you who prayed for, worried over, and asked about my eldest son, I have good news: he is in his fourth week of college at the University of North Texas in Denton. He has some significant physical challenges from a 6-story fall 13 years ago, but he told me that he's determined to make straight As. I'm very, very proud and pray that he will meet his goals and stay on this path. No more detours, JB!!! Many thanks to all who have inquired about him over the last two years and for your prayers. Blessings are starting to flow and it certainly is welcome a relief. Thank you, God!

That is such great news about your son. I had no idea about the horrendous fall of so long ago...oh man...he must be so tough.

On another note, these are gorgeous flowers. I wish we had enough sun to grow these in our yard, but alas we do not.

I'm thrilled to see my wonderful friend on the mend. I really did miss you while you were taking a break. God answers prayers! So thankful that all is working out and I certainly wish the best for your son. Some of us require a little extra time before we get things in perspective....this has been my case many times. Love the photos!!
