" 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

Gladiolus of the day...

This one is similar to the gorgeous one of the other day, but the coloration is actually a little bit different.  But look at all those blooms up and down the length of the stalk !
Today's new one






The one from a week or so ago.



















And this new one is a delicate peachy-pink color.

This is my single Rose of Sharon that the deer made a meal of.
  It is persevering and is my favorite because it reminds me of the ones I had on Draper Avenue in Shawnee.  Rose has one growing in her yard that looks like softcolored pepperment swirls.  She gave me a couple of new starts this Spring......I hope that one of them is like that.  Coming in the mail this Fall is a three-in-one, with pink, white, and blue growing all together.

  1. I love your glads. I had a peach/cream one at our last home. We have one Rose of Sharon here that is pale pink with a red center.
    Hope you enjoy the afternoon. We are having light rain and cooler temps - YEAH!!!
