" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???

The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.

He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31

"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4

No MALWARE hopefully

I'm no longer receiving the warning not to enter this space, so I hope that the problem is gone.  I apologize for anything that was/is beyond my computer savvy.

Today's flower-share is the basic Morning Glory, the true vining one.

This solid blue one is named "Heavenly Blue" quite appropriately, I think.  It is from a seed packet purchased at Dollar General Store.  The blooms are quite large, and gloriously beautiful.

This second variety is named "Flying Saucer", and Rose gave me the packet.  We're not quite sure we remember where she got them, but maybe ALSO Dollar General.

They took quite a long time to reach the blooming stage, but were well worth the wait.  No two blooms look alike, ranging from striped, to nearly all creamy, to paint-speckled-looking.  I have them growing up the lattice work of my deck and in my outer flower bed around a couple of dead hibiscus stalks, as well as here in this photo around the mailbox.
Speaking of the mailbox, it is one that I recently purchased at our second annual SummerFest, a craft fair that is situated around our Courthouse Square.  I saw it last year and loved it, but didn't own my own home, or even think that I ever WOULD.  When I saw the crafter this year, I mentioned the box, and she said that she still had it at home and that her husband would bring it to us if I liked............well, YEH !   That's beautiful purple Irises and a Mocking Bird on each side of the box.  I'm thrilled with it.
Meet Lottie Dah
Oh, and by the way.........here's the baby I've been waiting for for months and months and months !
It took so long to get my kitten that this one is from a second litter.  The first kitten reserved for me was named Opal, for the month of October in which she was born.  When my daughter didn't get to come visit while she was really small, she decided to keep her for her own family.  Then the mama kitty, Cleo, had another litter, and my daughter picked this one for me.  She was born in Lawton, Ok., so she's named "Lottie" (Lawtie), and I added "Dah" as her second name, just for the fun of it.  Imagine me out in our neighborhood if she wanders off, calling, "Lottie-dah !  Lottie-dah !"

  1. Love those morning glories!
    We have some purple ones in a big pot, but I seem to miss their open blooms each day. (I planted lot of their seeds along a fence, but only the ones in the pot came up!)
    (Great to see the malware message gone.)

  2. Lottie is so sweet. What beautiful, special features she has. We have my late mom's 11 yr old mini dachshund and 3 adult cats, too - all rescues. They all have a lot of fun together!
