Friendship

How blessed we are to have a group of friends who care for, and pray for each other.

Some of our family members are also dearest friends.

Notice how each flower looks pretty on it’s own, but many together are spectacular?…it’s the same with friends…025

Have a wonderful weekend, and I hope you will take time to enjoy some time with YOUR friends and family.

Tea Time- May 19,2014- It’s all Blue

The very vivid blue hydrangea inspired this vignette in blue, to join Tea Time Tuesday today.

A little arrangement in a cup and saucer (Shelley Dainty Blue) ….lungwort, which is an  early bloomer with pink and blue flowers.

Thrift shop china, a Denby breakfast cup and saucer, Carlton blue and white, are added to this little setting.

For our tea today I prepared a rhubarb-strawberry crisp, …..oh,  so juicy and fresh…

Tomorrow the Prince of Wales and Camilla are arriving in Winnipeg, and I am hoping to get to see him on Wednesday (at a distance of course!) This long weekend is honoring his ancestor, Queen Victoria.

Tough Times

My Mom is struggling with dementia, cancer, and now a broken hip. She just wants to go to be with her Heavenly father.

As I remember her better years, I think of orchids, her hobby.
