He has been gone for just over 3 weeks, and I really wasn't missing him that much, but this week he got sick with an abscessed tooth, and he was in pain and not feeling well. Of course, this made my heart ache to be there with my baby boy. He is being well cared for though, and he is in good hands with his father and step-mom and the capable doctors. It still doesn't take away my mother's heart's desire to be with her little one when he is sick. He sounded a little better today, but you can just tell he wishes he was with me right now. What a sucky 16th birthday!
So anyhow, I decided to post something that would cheer me up a little. The lady who lived her before me and planted my beautiful flower gardens must have loved purple. This is the time of summer that all the purple flowers come out to shine! I don't know what all of them are, so if anyone knows, I would so appreciate it if you can enlighten me!
Edited to add: Thank you so much to Diana Lyn for telling me what kind of flowers I have!
This hibiscus grows on one of the bushes next to my deck, and another outside my kitchen window. Oddly enough, the purple bush has bloomed, but the one right next to it in white has yet to flower.
This coneflower, is also growing next to the deck.
These pretty daisies are growing next to my patio in the flowerbed at the end of the driveway.
And these last flowers grow in the flowerbed between my driveway and the garage. They are cosmos and they are so pretty that even though I thought they might be weeds, I am not about to pull them.
Hope that these gave you a smile too!
On Saturday I am joining Pink Saturday sponsored by Bev of How Sweet the Sound. Should be fun! I have a lot of pink things that I would love to show!
