I got kind waylaid on mentioning flowers month by month - here are the last 3 and by me missing the posting of these sort of indicates me and my blogging for the last 3 months. Uh, let's just say I've been a little distracted. Don't rightly know if I'm 'on course' as of yet, but am willing to give it a try again.
|June's flower is the Rose. Both of my sister's birthdays are in June and I love roses - well, hubby loves them more than me. We popped into a little greenhouse the other day and it was full of various brilliant shades of roses - kind of like this picture. And the fragrance was wonderful!|
|July's flower is the Water Lily. The only place I've ever seen water lilies is at places like botanical gardens or zoos. There's some gorgeous ones at Huntingdon Gardens in SC.|
|August's flower is the Gladiolus. This is my month and I am glad they are 'my' flower. Besides them being absolutely beautiful to look at ... well, their name is Happy!!|
One of my very favorite childrens' books is A Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. Even though I love the poetry, Tasha Tudor is amazing as an illustrator!
