On The Mend

Thank you all for your prayers and sweet words of encouragement on my last post whether you left a comment or emailed me.  Y'all sure know how to lift one's spirits up!  It's amazing how exhausting it is dealing with mental drama.  I am doing MUCH better and I think I'm over the worst of it!   Thank you!

There is a plant in our woods that puts out red tubular flowers.  I don't know the name of it but it comes back every year and flowers during the Spring.  I went outside today to photograph it and got swarmed with the Texas-size mosquitoes.  I was at the edge of the woods, too, not in the middle of it!  Mercy!  I took a couple of shots and got out of there.  Kamikaze mosquitoes!  Bzzzzz!


























They're pretty cool with heart shaped leaves.  We've talked about moving it into the flower garden but I'm concerned that it may not transplant well.  So, we just leave it be!  It's difficult to enjoy though while swatting Kamikaze Texas-size mosquitoes!

Then there are my geraniums that are on my front, screened-in porch...




























I can enjoy these all day long sans bugs! *smile*

I hope y'all had a fantastic weekend!

Till next time,

thanks for risking your life and limb to take photos of that beautiful plant - whatever it is! and i don't think i've ever seen light pink geraniums like you have! they're beauties!

glad you're feeling more yourself - even if you're sporting a bunch of skeeter bites!

I think probably one of the first things I'm going to ask God about when I get up there is the reason for mosquitoes.....:) Great pics though. Thanks.
