Monday Morning Flowers!

Happy Monday Morning!

It's the start of a new week and it's back to school for me.

A new semester!






Don't you just love new beginnings?


The chief beauty about time
is that you cannot waste it in advance.
The next year, the next day, the next hour are lying ready for you,
as perfect, as unspoiled,
as if you had never wasted or misapplied
a single moment in all your life.
You can turn over a new leaf every hour
if you choose.

--Arnold Bennett

Happy Monday to you Betty. Above freezing temps and rain over the weekend washed away our snow--your flowers will fit perfectly in my yard view.

My college aged children weren't nearly as excited as you about the start of the new semester. They love their schools and what they're studying, but there's no place like home.

Man-Child just started his second semester today too! So, naturally, you and he were in my thoughts today. Hope you both had a good, fresh start.

Hey! It ALWAYS makes my day to see a plumeria! An entire plant, or a single bloom. They are beautiful and smell like Hawaii...
