We’ve had alternating bouts of drought and too much rain this spring, as well as a prolonged period of frost warnings. I just got some of my plants in last week! Hugs and blessings to you, too. ❤ LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Oh wow that is late. A lot of my flowering things have already come and gone. And we’ve entered summer’s inferno here in Texas sadly.

May we all have many lucky days spent with those we love. ❤ LikeLike Reply Lovely verse and gorgeous photos 😊 We are in the midst of a heatwave, 32C yesterday, such a contrast to a week ago when I was still wearing woolly jumpers and long socks! LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you so much for your kind words, Chris. It’s always a challenge for me to convert temperatures from Celsius to Fahrenheit. 🙂 Here, 32 is the freezing point. Where I live in Minnesota, it still goes down to 50 degrees F at night (10 degrees C?). In the process of figuring out the conversion of C to F, I learned something new! I didn’t realize that 0 C is the freezing point of water, and 100 C is the boiling point. I really like that way to set the values of degrees. It never occurred to me to ask where Fahrenheit values came from until today. Now I know but I’ll let others discover it online for themselves as I did. 🙂 LikeLike Reply Quite simply … uplifting. I felt good after reading your words … you have magic. (and you are quite photogenic too …) Regards from sunny Yorkshire. xx LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Thank you so much for your kindness, Pat, and best wishes to you and your lovely family in sunny Yorkshire. Ah, how I wish I were photogenic. Unlike the photo IDs for work and driving that have given me a laugh for many many years, digital photos give me the option to choose what to share. I have a rather large collection of rejects. 🙂 LikeLiked by 1 person Reply A large collection of rejects ??? I don’t believe that for one minute !!!
