i just wanted to say thank you for your lovely comments on my latest depressing post.
it really cheered me up to read your comforting comments - they made me smile!
so ... thank you, thank you, thank you!
and would'ja look at those hydrangeas!
look at how pretty they are!
when i was growing up my mom always had a bed of gorgeous flowers in our yard.
a lovely lilac bush ...
black-eyed susans ... (how did they get that name?!)
lily of the valley ...
my mom's mom favored tiger lilies ...
and my father's mother liked tulips ...
there's no reason to be all teary-eyed when things this gorgeous exist!
what sort of flowers did you grow up with?
(flowers pictured 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6)
for the last week i've kind of been a mental mess.
my creative energy has been locked up,
so i haven't been posting much lately
(or reading your lovely blogs much, for that matter ...
trying to catch up now!)
a vacation would do me some good ... but for now i've been focusing on work.
hopefully the sunshine we're supposed to be getting later in the week will give me a new perspective.
until then, i'll think positively.
