Share the Joy Thursday: Garden Beauty

Today's walk in my garden provided me with abundant



because the lilies -- both day lilies and the other kind --


were putting on a show.


I also discovered that my Columbines have produced
massive amounts of seeds, so if you want to grow a crop
(they'll self-seed year after year if they're suited
to your climate), drop me a note at my email
and send me your address. I'll pop some seeds
in an envelope and send them to you.



Oh yes -- I'm doing a happy dance and got some



because my repeat mammogram was perfectly fine,
so thanks for holding health energy for me
and saying a few prayers.




What says JOY to you this week?
To play along and share the joy:





1. do a post that tells and shows us
 what gives you joy.

2. capture the URL of the specific post 
and paste it into the Mr. Linky box along with your name.


3. Then click the NEXT box
If the "next" box doesn't pop up, click the link
to go to the page to select your image --
choose one from your post so you'll entice people to visit.

4. visit other players -- as many as possible -- 
and let their joy infect you.  

5. Leave them a comment about their post
because everyone enJOYs getting positive feedback.

Let's start an epidemic of joy!

Oh Meri,
first I a thrilled at your news. I am so relieved, really. I have been thinking of you and you have been in my prayers. So happy to hear it!! Your flowers are lush, gorgeous and yes spectacular. They express what you are feeling inside, I am sure. Just beautiful, like you my dear, like you! Putting up a post from Monday that didn't get seen. I am working on another but this was my "joy post".

Beautiful flowers. Just a suggestion, but if there's a way to have the linky not in a popup, that's the way to go. I had to try several times and the program kept telling me there were errors.
