~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


I am fortunate to have Jane in my family. She's an especially considerate person, and these flowers came from her. Knowing my love of things blue, she asked the florist for a mixture of blue and white flowers to be placed into a blue vase. It's hard to find blue flowers in the middle of winter, but I think that this is exceptionally beautiful arrangement with the blue vase loaded with the white blooms.



The vase is chock full of roses, lilies, daisies, baby's breath, and hollyhocks.




The card reads, "Feel better soon."
I AM feeling better today. Tomorrow, I get the results of my biopsy.






Thanks, Jane; they're almost as lovely as you are!


Happy Blue Monday!

Sally, dear... am back up "North" and am getting ready to try and replant the flower beds in St. Augustine. No small task. Claudie and Julie are coming next week, so I am taking time to get ready for their visit. But I wanted to stop by and see the lovely flowers Jane sent before I head out in the yard. And they are lovely. I hope that I will get a chance to meet her as I know how special she is to you.

Hoping and praying for good results while sending you warm hugs and prayers...

XO,

Sheila :-)
