Sunshine and the Moss Rose

$1200.00 stump, $1.92 flowers and damage to fence for free by the brats kids next door

Bob came in the house and said you have got to see what the moss rose is doing today. 

3 tiny plants,  64 cents each.

The flowers were in the shade... I snapped one and 
waited...


The sun rose...The flowers Glowed


and joy filled my heart with happiness as they waved at me with  their beauty..



Try to not think of all the misery in this world, but enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.

Love your header. The flowers are so pretty in the sunshine. An expensive stump. I have to have some palm trees taken down before they drop huge heavy fronds on the roof and damage it. I'm not looking forward to the expense. You are right , enjoy the beauty around us!!!

Beautiful! My neighbor has them growing along her white picket fence. I never thought to put them in a pot. Next year!

Best,
Bonnie

I really like your photo study of the moss roses. The shadows against the fence are beautiful, and the light is gorgeous.

They are so sweet! They look a bit old fashioned and Victorian. LOVE your very expensive stump and blue pot look, it would really cheer up the yard!

Really charming flowers. Love your new header as well! :D

I love miss roses!! I'm so glad they brought you cheer to help ameliorate the (expensive) loss of your tree and the damage from the little neighbor angels.

I really do love your plant stand but the price is a bit of a killer. Oh well that's a one of a kind any way. How do you keep from strangling the lovely neighbor children?
The moss roses are so pretty. Glad they brought you joy. I may have to go out and see if I can find some at a great price like that

That is one expensive flower stand. The Moss Roses are gorgeous glowing in the sunshine.

Sorry about the fence. The neighbors should be the ones paying for the repair. It makes me happy that we have no families with children in our neighborhood.

Oh yes, beauty, and as Paul says in the Bible, whatsoever there be of beauty, think on these things.

I really love these flowers, they are beautiful and very decorative. Looks great there in the shades having the sun pooking through.

The moss roses love your container!

And while you are enjoying the beauty, Sandra, it might also spread to the kids next door? Or maybe NOT. The colors were clearly enjiying the sunshine.

Wise words and your moss roses are gorgeous!

Loved the moss roses and the happiness-greater-than-aggravation math.

Rose said...

Beautiful!

I have some of those types of kids next door...one is 4 and the other is 7. They are terrified of me...I went out on the porch today and there sat the 4 yr old had a limb pulled down on my dogwood pulling off the leaves...I yelled at him to stop.

I scared him so bad, he came and got as close to me as he oculd and ask where Toralie was...his name for Lorelei. Then he sat with me all the time I was out there!

It's almost a time laps thing as flowers show themselves to the sun and you.
Very unique header too

Miss Debbie said...

Beautiful flowers and a beautiful reminder! Those roses even make your stump look pretty! :-)

Maggie M said...

Moss Rose is so pretty and yours is above and beyond. Lovely colors! They look nice sitting on that expensive stump. Sorry about the free fence design. Fantastic pictures sweet Sandra. Hugs

I'm impressed. Of course the moss roses are gorgeous and I love them in that pot on the stump!
