A Week of Flowers – Day Seven

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Today is the last day of Cathy’s (Words and Herbs) weekly flower challenge, which has been quite popular and successful in cheering us all up:

“From Sunday the 22nd through to Saturday the 28th let’s share a photo a day (or more than one if you like) of our flowers and gardens and brighten up this dreary time.”

Thanks, Cathy, it’s been a blast!

Nothing conjures up a warm day in June like this image of a blooming Clematis. Can you feel the sunshine upon you and hear the birds chirping in the trees?

And to those Americans who are celebrating Thanksgiving today, I wish you a safe and happy holiday. Traditionally, it is a day set aside to recognize, with gratitude, all the many gifts we have received. Focus on all the things that are bright and beautiful in your life, as well as the loved ones you hold dear. Abundant Blessings!

Today, I’ll share a vase that didn’t get posted here on my blog. Taken in early October, you can see a beautiful sugar maple in the background. It definitely cheers me up to think back to when my garden was full of flowers and I had lots of vases around the house.

And since it is Monday, I will link to Cathy at Rambling in the Garden for her weekly meme In A Vase on Monday.
