During Tori's stay at the hospital they tried to clean her out with the same medicine used for a colonoscopy. She was a very sick little girl and two x-rays showed that the bowel blockage was still there. Many saints of the Lord had been praying for her and the doctor did one more X-ray and found the blockage was gone even though she hadn't been passing anything but the liquid they were putting in her.
They sent her home. I saw her yesterday. She is thinner and pale, but just as lively as any three year old.

Thank you Lord God!



This is why I have been out hunting slugs in the evenings. So far this year I have killed 750 of these nasty things. (I keep track on my calendar) Slugs lay between 30 and 100 eggs about six times a year, so if I have done my math correctly figuring the small amount of 30 eggs, I have not only eliminated the 750 but have also eliminated at least 136,800 more of the future destructive creatures! I'm glad slugs don't like roses. I suppose they would if it weren't for the thorns on the canes. HA-HA SLUGS! This pretty rose was supposed to be a climber but it apparently hasn't learned how to do that yet. LOL. I thought it had frozen out over the winter but she sent up some new canes this spring and surprised me.

Don't get snappy with me!!! I think this freckled Snapdragon is so unusual. I planted them last year and they came back.

Here is the same one standing tall and proud. I really like snapdragons. They reseed easily and their offspring are usually unusual. Besides, they are so showy in so many colors and color combinations!

These are easy for beginning Gardner's to grow.

I know I have shown this rose before. I just wish you could smell it.

Here is a wild geranium. I think it's also called Cranesbill because the seeds pods resemble one. I like this picture showing the hairy flower buds.

A macro shot of a beauty Bush blossom. I love doing this, then enlarging the pictures and studying the intricate veining patterns. I often marvel at creation but there is something about flowers that totally fascinates me. Just imagine, each flower may look the same at a glance but a closer look shows that no two are the same. Our Lord creates originals, be it flowers, critters, or we humans. Identical twins are not even identical.

Gazing Balls are fun but I sure don't like how they make me look!!!!!


We had a really pretty sunset recently. I was at my computer when the sky took on a pink glow. Then it was everywhere, the houses, trees, the street and even the air seemed pink. I grabbed my camera and got a few shots before it faded. I love the colors.


Well dear ones, that's all for now, but I would like to ask for prayer for my great granddaughter Victoria who is in the hospital being treated for a stubborn bowel blockage. She is just three and such a precious little doll.


The Lord bless and keep you all close to his heart.

Dear Bev ~~ I love all your flowers
esp the clematis, rhodo and the blue flowers. You have a beautiful garden
my friend.
Thanks for your comments and things are going well at present for me.
I hope your summer is pleasant and not too hot. We began winter on 1st June, but it isn't too bad. Thanks to my heaters and electric blanket.
Glad you liked the Maple tree, leaves mostly fallen now. I have a lovely Daphne bush in full flower
and I cannot smell it at all. Have
lost the sense of smell. Take care
dear friend, Love, Merle.

Hope your great granddaughter is feeling better. Did she have to have surgery? Hopefully not! Poor thing. And oh, those darn slugs! I am also battling their co-horts: Snails.

PTL Tori is okay! Love your flowers. When I was looking at them, I don't know why but the song "Tiptoe Through The Tulips" came to my mind. I forgot who sang that song. Some "funny" little man. Love, Clara

Dearest Bev, how wonderful to hear that Victoria is now home and feeling so much better. People who say that prayers don't work, don't know a thing, do they!! hehe May she continue to get stronger and no more blockages!

Your flowers are absolutely stunning and I just love all the various colours. All of my lilies are now opening and I'm finally getting some colour in my flowerbeds:-) Oh yes, slugs...I do battle with them on a daily basis as well and they seem to be winning! lol I have this one plant that hardly has any leaves left, they've eaten most of them...grrrr! Tell me again why God made slugs??? lol Love ya! xoxo

Dear Bev ~~ Thank God that dear little girl is OK now. What a relief.
I am so glad that you had a lovely day with your eldest daughter, and your photos are wonderful. Thanks for sharing this happy day with us.
I go shopping tomorrow so will rug up well. Our top today was 7 C which is about 44 F. Started at 2C - 35 F.
I hope your girls enjoy the jokes you send them. What would we do without our computers? Take great care, dear Bev, Love, Merle.
