Sunday greetings and a box of blessings.

Good morning everyone and Happy Mother’s Day to all you moms out there. Today’s bible verse from my friend’s box of blessing’s is….

He that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

John 8:12

Getting ready to pop out and say hello to the world.

Photos are from our garden shopping for a Mother’s Day gift. Here in Arizona the temps are getting to be triple digits. The next few weeks will be the last time we will get to enjoy so many flowers. They don’t last long in Arizona heat. Anyway, thought they would be nice to share with all you moms out there. So many beautiful flowers to choose from. I picked low water flowers for my gift. Hopefully they will be able to last a little longer here in our desert heat.

I didn’t see a whole lot of bees today at this garden shop but I did see this tiny caterpillar on a beautiful sunflower.

And as an added bonus, look what surprised me Saturday morning in my own garden…four new cactus blooms just in time for Mother’s Day. What a sweet gift from above. Oh, and I was able to get some photos before they dropped off the cacti. Last time I missed shooting the blooms remember?Aren’t they pretty?

They were outside so it was natural light that framed them when I was shooting the photos. You will be able to tell from the photos that the light is different in some shots. I don’t photo shop any of my photos. Bright lite framed the flowers at one point, framing them in a beautiful light from above. The flowers are huge. And my Jasmine exploded with flowers that same day. It’s hard to photograph them in the early morning sun because they are tiny white flowers. It would be nice if I could send their fragrance through this post because that is what those little white flowers are known for. Woke up to a garden of pink flowers and beautiful fragrances.
