Wednesday Words...

Thank you Jen at http://muddybootdreams.blogspot.com for hosting this weekly meme...Sorry to say that this will be the last Wednesday Words for Jen. She is moving on to something else...wonder what that will be?? It's been fun Jen!

Most everyone knows my dear gardening friend Ms. Doris, three doors down. She had surgery about two weeks ago and is home recovering. Today I had the pleasure of strolling through her gardens with her. (we all know how that can lift our spirits)
A few of her blooms today are:
Endless Summer-Hydrangea
Okay, I bought a Cat Whiskers last spring, rooted it and shared it with Ms. Doris. Well, mine did not come back this year. BUT, look at hers! I love this plant with the delicate purple tips on the whiskers...think I'll try and root a piece of this one for me..
Her Cassia has some very beautiful blooms on it.

Oh and I so want to root a piece of this Hibiscus...isn't it a lovely orange?
Of course she has Camellias blooming...you know the ones that start with an S.
Ms. Doris when you read this please put the name in the comment section....a few of you also know which ones these are because you have freatured them as well.

Thank you Ms. Doris for the visit, I always enjoy spending time with you.....one of the kids always seems to be able to find me though....sigh

I'm glad Ms. Doris is recovering nicely. Her garden would be a welcome respite to come home to after surgery.

Hi Darla,
It looks like you and Ms. Doris were each blessed by the garden walk and each other's company. I love all the blooms, and either the whiskers or the bright yellow flower is my favorite.

The snow didn't come our way, but some places in the state got over 11 inches. Some of the utility companies are having to do lots of repairs. I will probably be posting some snow photos in the not too distant future, though. You can enjoy my snow while I enjoy your continued and new blooms.

Glad to hear Ms. Doris is doing well, and that you both had a lovely stroll in her gardens. Gardens are great therapy, physically, mentally and spiritually.

I have the cat whiskers and the cassia and love them both.

What pretty flowers, they can lift anyone's spirits for sure. I've never seen Cat Whiskers before, what a neat flower.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I'd love to see you and Ms. Doris together ---chatting about your gardens (what works/what doesn't)....

Both of you have fabulous flowers --and yards. I'm so impressed.

Dorothy said...

Beautiful flowers! I've never heard of the Cassia, It's really pretty! How nice to have a neighbor like Ms Doris.

Oh I hope Ms. Doris is doing well. I love it when you visit her. You are blessed to have her as a neighbor.

Hi Darla! I am not an orange person but that orange hibiscus is the prettiest thing. I love it.Hope the elbow is feeling better.

Such beautiful flowers. I think they can be so soothing to the soul. I especially like the Cassia. We grow many species here as well.

Darla, I really enjoyed your visit, and I love the pictures of my garden. You take such fabulous photos. The camellia is sasanqua (I hope I spelled that correctly). Ms. Doris
