HF#119 - FaveFive#4 - Today'sFlowers

Make Time for Small Reflections
Scroll down for Five Favs & and Today's Flowers
HaikuSkyWatchFriday is at Happily Retired Gal

Friday already?
Don't know how this week vanished
without any posts

since Monday when I
celebrated my birthday ...
Seems my scheduled

activities were
just a bit too much because
today I feel sick ;--(

Sore throat ... drippy nose
body aches from head to toe ...
I'm 'holed up' alone

hoping that Zicam
Vitamin C and bed rest
helps me recover!

Thanks to everyone
for lovely birthday wishes ...
Gratitude abounds!!!
... in addition to the Cumulative Gratitude List in my Sidebar this month, here are Five Favorites from this past week:

1. My purple iris buds (click for last week's collage) burst forth gloriously this week in tantuple blossoms!


2. Other bulb blossoms burst forth as well ... if anyone knows what these yellow flowers are, I'd love to know myself ... and would appreciate any insight visitors might provide about them.


3. Although it's been just a couple of weeks since I cut back my roses, new growth is springing forth already. Isn't that amazing? I certainly hope the wintry weather over many parts of the country comes to an end soon and that others see signs of Spring in the days & weeks ahead.

4. Excellent weather followed Monday's birthday surprise rainbow permitting my sister & I to spent several hours walking the nearby wetlands with cameras in hand ... birdwatching. I hope to share some of those photos for Camera Critters this weekend.

5. I enjoyed the second meeting of my Writers Workshop last night. I look forward to reading the pieces of writing submitted by classmates this week and participating in discussing the work next Thursday in addition to receiving feedback on the writing I shared.


This is my 4th ...

The pictures from faves 1-3 are beautiful! I do not have a green thumb, so I'm in awe of gardeners.

Happy belated birthday! I hope it was a good one.

Lovely photos, as always. Hoping you are feeling well in a minute. A day of rest is a good thing. Take care!

Brenda said...

I wish I could go to a writers workshop, sigh! I keep reading them about them on different blogs.

Sounds like a good week :)

So sorry you are feeling sick, sweetie. I fixed my anonymous situation on your "follow" widget. Seems like there's a lot of that going around this week! Hope you feel better soon.

Gorgeous flowers and how fun to go bird watching. That is something I wanted to try this summer.

Betty said...

Oh no, one of my favorite bloggers had a birthday this past Monday, and I missed it. Boy, am I ever behind in visiting.

Anyway, I'll take this opportunity to wish a very HAPPY BELATED BIRTHDAY. I hope it was one of the best, if not the very best, birthdays you have ever had.

Leaving tomorrow for our cruise. I'll visit when I get back, which will be around the middle of March.

Oh, how I love your flower collages! I don't know what the yellow ones are, but they are every bit as beautiful as the irises. Thanks for brightening my cold, snowy day!

Pamela said...

What beautiful collages! Oh, how I long for this snow to melt away. I think it's time to bring out the seed catalogs!

I'm sorry to hear that you're not feeling well. May you get better soon!

Travis said...

Seems like I've been avoiding a full on cold for a month. I get a sniffle and I take Nyquil, and I stave off the cold.

So far so good. Maybe I'll make it through the rest of winter. But I usually get a spring cold and I'm not looking forward to that at all.

George said...

What beautiful flowers. Hopefully we will soon see some like this in the yard (if it ever warms up!).

Arija said...

A glorious collection of spring flowers!

Carletta said...

Gorgeous flowers and collages and haiku! You never disappoint.

Judy said...

The blue and the yellow flowers are so vivid! I have no idea what the yellow ones, either, but I like them! And the collage idea is goo, because you can share so many more photos that way!

Joy Des Jardins said...
