My mother's favorite flower, with it's tiny white fragrant flowers, grows so perfectly in the flowerbed outside our back door. Everytime I see them, or smell the wonderful aroma of "Lily- of- the- Valley", I am reminded of her. Yesterday, I found these blooming in our back flower bed, because she had loving planted them. What exquisite beauty exists in each tiny flower.
My recycled front door basket. I took this basket that has graced my front door for the last two summers, and tore out the old and faded faux flowers, except for the white petunias. They still looked good, and of course had not faded. I picked up the rest of the faux flowers at KMart, believe it or not. I choose different color schemes for the front of my home each summer. Then I coordinate the flowers that I plant in my three big pots, with the front door arrangement. This year my color scheme is ...red, yellow, white and a touch of blue. I will show you my planted pots in another post. Thought that you might like to see my "new" front door basket, that will welcome my family and friends this summer. I needed quite a few flowers in it, so that one could see it from the road. It is certainly not professionally done, but I smile to think that KMart helped me out so inexpensively, and it is most important that my front door says "welcome" to all who visit it.
And, I wanted to share the lovely watering can of flowers that would greet you at my back door, thanks to my dear sister. She gave this to me for my birthday a few weeks ago. It must be the perfect spot for it, because it is filled with blossoms. I think of her each time I water it. What a special gift! These two little pajama clad girls, tried to pose for this picture to appease their mamaw, but due to the bright morning sun shining in their eyes, they would not look at my camera.
Appreciate The Beauty and Wonder
"I find each day too short for all the thoughts that I want to think, all the walks that I want to take, all the books that I want to read, and all the friends I want to see. The longer I live, the more my mind dwells upon the beauty, and the wonder of the world."(and the One who so lovingly created it all for me to enjoy).
