I went for a walk this morning...frigid cold!
Returned home to find "Happiness" at the door...It is a blessing to have friends....
who care...and want you to be happy...

who will send flowers....because they know you love them...

Such a contrast to look out the window at deep winter...and turn your head to see these on the table...


RHONDA, BARB, LINDA AND KATHY....couldn't be more beautiful in the middle of winter!!!


  1. Gorgeous flowers - wonderful friends - sweet signs of Spring to lift your hearts.

  2. Oh my, they really are stunning. What a thoughtful and loving gift. So pretty. Hugs, Marty

  3. They are beautiful..and they suit you! I agree there's just something about being offered fresh flowers.. especially tulips..they say Spring~
    There is magic in offering them also.
    I get excited like you do.

  4. How absolutely gorgeous they are. What sweet friends you do have for sending them to you. Enjoy them dearly.

    The flowers are beautiful. How stunning they look with your light pastel background! It makes a cold day so much more cheerful.

    Take care, sweetie.

  11. Hi Kathy,
    Oh, what lovely flowers and lovely friends!
    I adore tulips, course, I adore most flowers!! lol
    I am not too choosey when it comes to flowers,
    course, guess we all have our favorites, but they
    are sure hard to pick for me.
    What a great winter surprise and pick me up.
    Hope all is going well at your house and Dave
    is continuing to feel well.
    Blessings sweetie,

  12. Kathy, I am glad you are taking time for yourself and getting in a walk!--even a cold one! Your friends are dear ones and I know you appreciate it. Love those tulips in this gray of winter!

  13. These are just lovely. I bought some yellow tulips for someone yesterday, I knew they would brighten her day. They just screamed happy spring.

  14. How wonderful of your friends to send such lovely flowers. I love tulips! Take care of yourself, the road ahead is long but you have friends all along the way to help whenever you need it.

  15. Beautiful flowers ... beautiful photos ... beautiful friends! Happy weekend :)

  16. Absolutely beautiful.
    Wonderful friends.
    Warm happy heart moment.
    PINK Saturday Blessings ;-)

  17. Hi Kathy,
    I've been sitting here catching up on some of the posts here that I have missed and enjoying reading about what's up in your life. I know that you have had some trying things going on and I just stopped in to say, that while I don't let you know it often, I am thinking of you and your family. I want you to also know that your posts are always uplifting and beautiful and I leave feeling glad that I have come. You have special friends to have sent you such a beautiful bouquet today. It is surely brightening your space and I'm sure your heart.

  18. Love your beautiful flowers!! What special friends. Just keep thinking, spring is right around the corner. Thank goodness! Love & blessings from NC!

  19. Just happened by your blog this afternoon, such pretty flowers. Sounds like you and your love are digging deep in the trenches for the battle. I'm sad to hear of your struggle, but glad to have come upon your page so I can pray for you and your family.

  20. True friends ARE priceless...
    and they always know when you need a 'pick-me-up' with out even having to ask; they just know what you like.
    The flowers are pretty nice too.

  21. Beautiful. Flowers always brighting our days. Makes me think of Moody. Good memories. Keeping you in our prayers. Blessings! Joanne

  22. Tulips are just the very best this time of year. I love how they follow the light all day!

  23. Kathy thanks so much for dropping by and leaving a comment. Your blog is gorgeous, and so are your flowers. What ever would we do without our caring friends? I'm now a follower of your blog and will add you to my Inspiring Friends page too. It's so nice to meet you!

  24. Totally lovely springtime in a vase. Those are just gorgeous.

  25. What a blessing to have such wonderful friends! Kathy, I am so sad to learn about what you have been going through over the past few weeks. Please know that I will be praying hard for you and your love Dave. May you feel Gods peace upon you as you fight this battle!!


  26. Kathy, Thank you for stopping by once again I was happy to hear from you. I have not been over visiting you for awhile and am so glad to get caught up so that I could add you and your husband to my prayers. What a wonderful spirit you have and I am glad to hear that you are leaning on God in this fight. What would we do without him? Really wonderful friends, pretty flowers, reminders of spring.......a good day.

  27. Wow! Lovely flowers are always welcome. Did you know also that the little flowers are Geraldton Wax? That's what we call them here in Oz, they are a kind of native flower. Can you find them there in the States too?

  28. Such a sweet valentine and the lavender ribbon took my breath away!

  29. What a lovely surprise for you! They are gorgeous and colorful midst all the snow!
    Sending prayers and hugs to you both.

  30. Kathy those are gorgeous! So beautiful and welcome in such a bleak winter! Enjoy.

  31. ♥ the color combo of your beautiful tulips!
