A Lovely Surprise


Yesterday was a lot better. The sling came off; my phone seems to be working despite its plunge into the dishwater; and I received these lovely flowers from a friend I did a favor for. . . the scent of the Stargazer lilies is heavenly!

I love the way the florist worked in wild goldenrod and ironweed.

Are these purple beauties delphiniums or larkspurs? I've had no luck growing either, drat it!

Such a beautiful bouquet!

And those unopened buds tell me I'll be enjoying the lilies for some time!

Vicki, my apologies. When I read you got your sling off, I had to go back through your blog to see why you had it in the first place. I don't know how I missed that, but I'm glad your injury to your shoulder is healing.

The flowers are beautiful! I think the blue ones are larkspur, but I'm not sure...they could be delphiniums. I have had no luck with them either.

Oh, good, you ARE doing better AND the phone survived... AND you got a lovely surprise, to boot! Much better report.

Yay! sling off. Now, no more accidents of any kind. Okay?

Vicki, your bouquet is sunny and beautiful...surely it gave extra celebrating to having that sling off.

Hoping the shoulder healing continues steadily.

Nothing like bright flowers to cheer one's spirits. Glad you're on the mend.
