A floral life

I'm not sure what I love more...
roses in the garden or roses in my home.

To have both is a joy!

In any stage of life---

they are lovely---

These pretties are all losing their petals and still beautiful.

Their color is richer and deeper as they age.

Kind of like a woman!

As we grow in wisdom our beauty seems to go within
and deepens the beauty in our hearts 
and although we are losing a few petals on the outside,
on the inside our souls are becoming more beautiful
and it shows in our acts towards one another.


Several weeks ago Anne Marie from na-da farmlife asked if I would post about 
the Creatively Made Home---Home for the Holidays.
I'm sorry to say that because of some things that have been happening here and my
lack of blogging, I totally spaced it until I was deleting some old e-mails and saw the one I had received  from Anne Marie. Needless to say---I feel bad about forgetting because it starts
on October 15th.
If you would like to read more about it and sign up for the course you can go to

Sending big hugs from ME!

Magical September

Here it is...
beautiful September already!

The weather is doing what the weather always does in September here in my part of the country.
Cooling down.

I sleep all summer with the windows wide open, and just a sheet,
but in September I find myself pulling the comforter
up from the foot of the bed about half-way through the night.

September has a magic about it.

I think it has something to do with the light.
The light is glorious in the mornings and then again in the evenings.

September brings routine.

Although I no longer have young children to wake and send off to school,
I still find that some semblance of routine returns after the lack of it that comes with summer.

And like the farmer who has the large hay field behind my house
is gathering in his last crop of hay, I feel the need to gather
in those things that will insure our comfort through the cold months ahead.

I feel September inviting me to enjoy her magic.
Every single day of it.

I think I'll do just that!

Wishing all of you a beautiful September!
