Flowers, Skies and Giveaway

Here are the flowers blooming today. This poor Rose looked like it was a gonner after our nasty winter but it came back.  It is only about a foot tall and the blooms are not pretty but it made it.

These Lilies just keep blooming even though they are near a Black Walnut tree that has killed off a lot of other plants.

Coming home from our son's Saturday night these were the clouds we say and the sunset.

If I counted right this is my 1000 post since Jan. 2009.  I will have a surprise giveaway on Fri.  Please just comment on this post and do not pass it around.  I want one of my regular followers to win.  I have loved my years of blogging and wish to give someone a nice gift.  I want to thank my daughter Terry for getting me started and all the help she has been.
