It is my calling to treat every human being with grace and dignity, to treat every person, whether encountered in a palace or a gas station as a life made in the image of God.

My Zinnia seedlings finally bloomed. Been trying my hand at drying flowers again. I use to all the time, and since I’m doing the Postcrossing, I thought a dried flower would be a nice addition to any postcard sent. However, this Summer my garden is kind of sparse ~ more full of weeds than blooms it seems. Summer gets ahead of me and by August, I admit I get a lot lazy about pulling weeds.

Below are some Bachelor Buttons and couple Zinnia that I’ve dried already.

Thanks for visiting. Comments are always fun to read so drop one off before you leave if you have time. Also, if you have a technique for drying flowers that you want to share, I’d love to hear about it. Thanks…:)

Love From The Son

First Lilly 2014 for FL

After a divorce our son had to move back home for a bit. While here, he purchased bulbs and planted these Lilies. They have multiplied over the years and are getting so tall. Every Spring it is a delight to watch them finally open up to reveal their amazingly beautiful red color. He couldn’t have picked a better color as it is one of my favorites. That son has since remarried and moved to California, but my eyes love looking at him through these flowers each year. I miss him, but what a great reminder of the wonderful man (son) he has turned out to be. Such a loving heart.

I did transplant some of the bulbs early this Spring and was glad to see they have also made it and are blooming.

Sharing my first Lily Bloom of 2014 with Floral Love.

I ran an action from The Coffee Shop Blog called Coffee Shop Art Gallery, and used a free texture from Pixabay that Rita at the Coffee Shop also shared a link to on her site, and you can find the texture here http://pixabay.com/en/texture-artisan-acrylic-traditional-319740/.

The frame is one that comes loaded with Adobe Photoshop IE.

Thanks for visiting.

I’m also sharing one of my free textures that I make. You can download it HERE without my Logo watermark or just click the photo below.

Petunias for Mama

Mom Day Flwr for Floral Love

Sharing with Floral Love a picture of this gorgeous planter of Petunias that my oldest son and family brought me on Mother’s Day among other presents. I used one of Mona’s textures ~ 04 Angelic Aqua and applied the picture on top of it rather than blending since I thought it made a great frame.

Give a visit over at Mona’s Picturesque to see what lovely flowers others are sharing for this Wednesday meme. 🙂

Dahlia Droplets

Dahlia dew drops

Sharing ~ over at Floral Love ~ a photo of one of my favorite flowers from my garden a few Summer’s ago ‘The Dahlia’ .  This photo I’m sharing is straight out of camera..no texturizing. I just loved how it turned out with the water droplets adding to the loveliness of the flower. (and as always if you click on the picture you’ll get a better view of the photo)

Love how hardy the Dahlia is plus the fact you can save the bulbs to replant the next year.

Visit Mona’s Picturesque for all the Floral Love that is happening. I only wish we could smell the awesome fragrances that would be emitted from that site with all the lovely floral offerings.

Love that you stopped by and come back soon.
