Random thoughts about Gardening, Creating, Nature and of course Scottish Terriers!

Monday, Monday.....

OK while we await the departure of de' bug, I have to keep the storyline moving here....very thick, humid, icky, stinky, stuffy, damp, heavy air here....kinda like the Seven Dwarfs of the atmosphere!
While the weather for most people may seem a bit dreary, it's really the perfect weather for nature photography!


After my Mother- In- Law passed I wanted to honor her with an appropriate addition to our prayer garden...

Shamrocks...beautiful don't you think?

With Mother's Day approaching quickly, I wanted to dedicate the garden to her. I found the bulbs....and then I found this......

The only one at one of the local garden centers! I know that her Irish eyes were smiling down on that garden center at that very moment....
We plan on planting more bulbs at the cemetery this coming weekend.....we know that she'll like that. I have always felt closer to family and friends that are no longer with us through gardening.
How do you honor and feel close to loved ones who have departed all too soon?


  1. Beautiful flower pictures! I've had shamrocks growing for the past two years but this year they haven't come up yet, but I still have hopes. I really hope you start feeling better soon. It's awful to have a bug or a cold when the weather is warm. Yucky for sure. Take care of yourself!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous flowers and I LOVE the cross in your garden.
    Blessings, andrea

  3. Beautiful flowers!!! I remember my Mother when I walk by flowers she gave me!!!! She has been gone since 05. But not really b/c she is out with my flowers!!

  4. Both, your garden AND the pictures are BEAUTIFUL!!! The clovers are a special touch!

  5. What lovely flowers. That's a great way to honor a loved one!


  6. Totally gorgeous photos!! (as usual) and I love the idea of a memorial garden...I may have to borrow it!

  7. Gorgeous photos! Love the shamrock. And the cross nestled among the strawberries. Makes my Irish heart sing!
