Like The Flower...

Be like the flower,
turn your faces to the sun.

Hey Dear Donna! I love the blue of that flower. It looks like plumbago. And I need to remember to face the sun. Beautiful words.

Hello Dearest,

What a lovely image, and thank you for sharing the poetry. The first poem is one of my favorites to use when I'm scrapbooking/collaging Journals for people.

Thank you for your lovely return comments via email. My day is just so much brighter if I've brought a smile to someones face, and yours is so lovely to start with. You must have modeled when you were younger, as you are such a stunning lady.

Love ya'
Meri

Tracy is right. The plant is a plumbago! Way to go, Tracy.

Thanks to all for your kind comments today. I hope you have a restful and creative Sunday, my friends.

I love these words, and I adore cape plumbago! I shared a photograph of mine last week. In our zone, I have to protect it from the sun, though! Happy Sunday!

I miss my pretty blue plumbago!! :( It was planted all around an ugly electrical box in our side yard & it camouflaged it beautifully!

Donna, I'd be happy to show you how to smock when I'm down in FL in Feb. We'll be in Bobcat Trail the entire month. I'd be happy to pleat up some fabric that you can turn into a bonnet. That's the easiest item to learn on. I'll be sure to pack my books, too. It is SEW easy & relaxing....way more fun than counted cross stitch.

I'm off to vote on the quilt fabrics now.
Have a wonderful Sunday!
Hugs,
Rett

Isn't that just the most beautiful blue! Very fitting quotes too.

I answered each of the questions individually to the authors, but for the record:
Rett: I can't wait to see you when you come to FL. You're right up the road from me and I'll look forward to learning to smock from you! Thanks a million for offering.
Karena: You're right...it's a wonderful giveaway and I've already entered. Thank you for inviting me.
Rebecca:Yes, dear. That was your strawberry. I'm so glad that you love it!
Thanks again, everyone, for leaving your comments today!
xoxo
