Flower Friday This moment, see Beautiful

Today we are happy to join two of my gal Pals 

And Sugar

It is said beauty is in the eyes of the beholder....and we agree
BUT it is also very important to keep you eyes open wide for
surprises, like unexpected sand castles, miles from the beach, in the middle of a mall and gorgeous flowers every where.  

This afternoon Mom is MIA
About 2 weeks ago she rec'd an invitation to attend
a ladies' only function hosted by the peeps bank..
There is potential today for mom to create 'beautiful'.
The invite read in part,
"You are cordially invited to be our guest at Fairview Greenhouses and Garden Center
for a Ladies afternoon Out and Client appreciation."
A nice lady at the garden center will show Mom and others
how to select, coordinate and plant container gardens.
Guests will pot a container garden to take home.  Let me just say mom does not have a green thumb.  So this should be interesting.
There may or may not be a picture of said container garden 
sometime next week!!
the best part of the invite was

Mom loves I scream and she is purrty sure she'll love
Italian Ice!!


  1. Ooooooooo...we are sure our Mama will do a grand job today on her gardening adventure!!!
    What a beautiful collage!
    Dory, Jakey, Arty & Bilbo

  2. HER gardening skills are so bad, flowers wilt when SHE walks past them! Those are great sand castles....we'd love to play with them...

  3. Now that sounds like a nice and beautiful getaway to me.

  4. Gosh, even brown-fingered Gail might be tempted to attend a gardening event that offered Italian ice cream.

  5. Oh wow, you have a nice bank crib in your area... we only get "special" invitations.. and instead of italien ice cream we only et icy cold showers :o)
    I agree with you... if we look close and if we wander around with wide open eyes we can discover beautiful things efurrywhere...

  8. Italian Ice?? oooooooooohhhhhhh. I once went into a gelateria in southern Italy and couldn't choose. In the end I had so many flavours I had to sit down with the most yummy bowl full of gelato. It was lunch time as well! Very jealous now of your mum, Madi!

  9. Oh that sounds like a fun adventure. So do we get to see the finished product?? Hope the Mom has a really good time.
