I have 25 Stargazer Lily bulbs to plant. My cousin gave me a bag full this summer and I've been needing to send a thank you. They are one of my favorite flowers. So big and showy and fragrant.
I'm slowly getting a few cards done for those on my long list of dear ones I want to send cards to. Some are thank yous, some are thinking of yous, some are just simple hellos. I love making cards with a specific person in mind.
We are enjoying some beautiful warm, autumn days. Indian Summer.
I'm so ready for the cold and cozy, but I'll enjoy some more sun rays since they are being offered.
My youngest daughter was home sick a couple of days this week. One day we took a walk through our field down below and enjoyed the beauty.
Here are a few glimpses of what we enjoyed,
Love the sun shining through, it has given me much food for thought.
As my mom would often say and write on any chalkboard she came near (we had a few in our house, she loved to write messages on them) "Take time to smell the flowers." In essence, take time to enjoy the beauty around you. And I might add, the beauty within you too.
