It's good to feel healthy again! I've moved my March sidebar Gratitude list to Happily Retired Gal and started my April list at Small Reflections. Taking time each day to add something to the list keeps me paying attention to the everyday blessings I encounter.

My sister and her husband left for Alaska on Wednesday so I should have more time for blogging in the days & weeks ahead, but I suspect it will take considerable time to catch up. I'll do what I can as time & energy permit.

I've enjoyed creating collages to share on each of my blogs look forward to doing more of the same with the many photographs I've taken over the past few weeks.

In closing, on this Palm Sunday, I submit for your viewing this brief video clip from Simple Truths
... One Solitary Life.

Wef inally got a blue sky yesterday day after a month of dismal gray and no sky to be seen.

For soem reason I can't watch videos and u tube stuff on my computer.

Thats a nice collage of your flowers.

Nasturtiums are a wnderful multi-purpose plant, the buds can be pickled, the flowers brighten the garden often when nothing else is in bloom and make a welvcome and so pretty addition to a garden salad.

Beautiful flowers once again! I'm glad you grabbed the CC badge. :o)

Joyce said...

I think I'll purchase some nasturtium seeds today. I want to do all I can to encourage the bees, whose numbers have been declining.

So glad to hear you're feeling better!

I love the color combo on your mosaic! So bright and cheery. I am glad you are feeling better.

Love these brightly coloured nasturtiums. I only have the orange ones in my garden. They are so hardy, bouncing right back after a hot Australian summer!

I'd forgotten how much I love orange flowers (I think treating myself to a bouquet is in order). Lovely collage!
