Flower Friday with Dory and St. Pat's Day

Saint Patrick's Day..
My green Irish eyes are smiling...really.
You know  how you can tell?
Small pupils and ears are erect can't hear me but I'm purring

Above the bed where I rest is a cross stitching mom did called
It is a favorite of Mom's

In case you can't read it...Mom typed it for you.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields 
and until we meet again, 
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I think this is a very nice place to nap and mediate

We thank Dory Princess of Posies for hosting....

Today we have a collage of blooms here and there at Manor Madi as of 3/7/17

1.Magnolia Madi she blooms and thrives inside she requires regular feeding and watering!!
2.First Dogwood blooms of 2017 in MARCH, normal blooming is April
3.Hairless lady pot now has a Snake plant 'do'
4 and 4a. bed of Periwinkle
5. Daffodils are coming up everywhere and sometimes in surprise places
6. Camellia blooming in the front, last month we showed you the back and we still have buds 
7. Red Bud in bloom
7a. Once the flowers fall off the limbs will be covered in heart shaped leaves.  This tree has been
a happy surprise.  WE did not plant it.  Now it is about 15' tall.

Finally our pansies which we have renamed

The little Pansies that Could
They were planted in early fall 2016
Even after the ice storm in January followed by 3 days of not above 20 degrees
and nights in the single digits
They keep on blooming.  They obviously like cold better than hot.
After several very hot weeks in February they got a bit weary but
Dad nursed them they made another come back.
This is probably this last good photo of pansies until fall.


  1. Happy St Patricks Day Grrl furrend! It is so nice to sees yous and your wonderful flowers! Wes has a few spring flowers around here and the pansies is surviving despite the WORST cold and snow in years and years here in Vancouver.
