Thought for the day …..

Good Morning and Welcome to Saturday the 16th day of July, 2016.



One of my most favourite things on the planet is FLOWERS.

I love them.

The different palette of colours.

How each petal is different .

How the scents just carry you away to the best places.

Here are some of my flowers over the years since I have moved to Edmonton.

I must download this year’s flowers from my tablet to the computer.

I have some lilies that are burgundy and so pretty.

My front flower bed is do well despite some hard rainfall and hail.

So today I just want to make you smile.

Perhaps you will go for a walk and check out the flowers in your neighbourhood …. that is if you do not have any at your home.

Happy Saturday.

AND Dragonflies, I love them.

Each one is different and so beautiful.

Now back to work.

My friend is coming for a visit and things have to be just SO.

Special Hello to: my friend “V” ….. only three sleeps now.

Always, Carol and Alvin


P.S. Alvin is excited for the new company.

    Your flowers are gorgeous as is Alvin. I am envious of anyone who can buy plants for hot and sunny places as I currently wail at the rain wrecking havoc on my rose bushes.

      Hi Maria,
      Most of my flowers are from years gone by. Unfortunately we are in the same boat as you as it has been raining so much my flowers beds resemble a disaster zone. The flowers are managing to grow but would be more beautiful with a bit less hail and strong downpours but we needed the rain so who can complain. I always like to look back at all of my photos of flowers and wish them to be here. Yes, I agree Mr. Alvin is a handsome guy and a good one. Thank you for your thoughtful comment. I wish you a great day.

      Hi Morine,
      I love looking back at photos of my flowers over the years since I moved here …. had some years where the flowers were so amazing. This year one too many hail/downpour and they are showing it. But they continue to hang in there and I am grateful. Hope all is well with you. Did your niece enjoy the tea? I will call your sister over the next little bit.
