Monday Morning Flowers

Everybody knows my followers are astute, sophisticated, and just plain good-looking people.

Indeed, as you look around your Thanksgiving table this Thursday, you have my permission to say loudly, "I am the best looking person in this room."

(My friends from other countries, never fear. You are granted this permission as well even though you do not celebrate the American form of Thanksgiving. )

Looks aren't everything though.

Now, let's boost your intellectual self-esteem with a complex quiz.

Based on your Monday Morning Flowers, shipped to you straight from the land of fruits and nuts, what weather would you say occurred in southern California this weekend?

Come on.

You can do this.

I believe in you.

(If you pass this quiz, you are permitted to claim that you are the smartest person in the room as well.)

Your family will adore you for your honesty.

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

--Rabindranath Tagore

mm, moisture in liquid form?
Betty, we Canadians had our Thanksgiving last month, but as my paternal grandmother was from Nebraska I will participate in your "best looking person in the room" declaration.

Old Kitty said...

Monsoon season?

The flowers are gorgeous! Like me! LOL!

Take care

Oh so nice, wish I had a little of that warmth.I always remind those around me who is the fairest on the wall, as if they already needed a reminder.

Alison said...

Dust storms and cat furballs!

Oh, you meant outside?

Gigi said...

That couldn't possibly be rain...not in SoCal where it is rumored to be sunny and gorgeous all the time.

Pat Tillett said...

Clear skies and sunny? No.
Clear skies and crisp? No.
Clear skies and scattered clouds? No.
Cold, wet and windy? YES!

Hilary said...

It had to be extremely hot there. Look how much those beautiful flowers are sweating.

Slamdunk said...

I was going to say something clever, but I can't top Hilary's comment.

Guess you have intelligent followers and well me.

I hope you keep your umbrella close.

I'll say I'm the best looking person in the room, but I guarantee my wife will laugh herself silly if I do that.

Unknown said...

Looks like there was some precipitation!

annie said...

Something wet I think.
Enjoy your Monday.

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Lovely and soft water droplets make flowers look even more beautiful!

jenny_o said...

Heavy dew? Hot and dry and therefore you had to water the flowers before breakfast?

Oh, I give up :)

Ms. A said...

Into each life some rain must fall. (but it sure makes Betty's flowers gorgeous)

My Mind's Eye said...

Oh my, my ...Mr. Rambo has some un-Monday like issues...he might need a pot of posies!! MOL

Mom says So. CA must be in a drought...but don't bank much on her she is on muscle relaxants for her back. I say So. CA had much needed rain.

Baby Sister said...

An ice storm that is now melting from the sun? :) Those pictures are certainly beautiful!! Happy Monday!!

Nat said...

Gorgeous rain-kissed photos!
Thanks for the permission to blow my own trumpet on Thursday Betty :-)

Ann said...

wow it's that hot there that the sweat is dripping off the flowers? Holy cow!!!!!

Larri said...

Oh, dear. Did your hose spring a leak? ☺

I'm going to tell my family I'm not only the best looking, but also the smartest person at the table...just to see sweet potatoes spurt out their noses. Happy Monday! ☺

Green Monkey said...

so lovely Betty!!!

Connie said...

Well, you know those flowers would not be pretty if they didn't get a little rain once in a while. :-) They are lovely, Betty--just like you!!

Having lived in PA for the past two years where it has been raining at least four days out of every seven, I believe it was wet weather.

Stunning photography, I love water droplets photographed upon plants or flowers. I have no idea why, but it makes them look enchanted.
I thought it never rained in California, hihi.;)
Lovely thoughts as well, if I do not get the chance, I would like to wish you a happy Thanksgiving.
