Post Mother's Day Flowers Post

Every year on Mother's Day at church, flower plants are given to every mother by the children to their mother. We don't have children/grandchildren attending our church but every year a child makes sure I get a plant. This year I had THREE children offer me a plant - yes, I cried a teeny tiny bit, it was sooo precious!
I decided to pot up the plants in a pot and place it close by.
 The dahlia at the back and the purple one on the left was from church. The one on the right came from our DIL M and I added trailing dusty miller and the 'Mom's Garden' sign. Altogether, it makes a lovely combination and a lovely reminder of the love and care of others!


I've not been posting as much - I've been busy with preparing for a garden tour here in two weeks. This brick and block walkway is a work in progress for the occasion.


These are yard sale finds from the week end. The two on the left are interesting finds for a dollar each; the plump to-be-recovered footstool/coffee table for two bucks...
and this chair? Another dollar! I was wishing for seven more! :)
Yeppers - it was a successful hunt!

- From The Pulpit -

"We cannot produce Spirit-filled fruit out of a law based system."
Romans 8:11
