Feisty Foxglove


A local supermarket had plants for sale out in front.

A rather startling plant with pink flowers looked stately and unique.

It was on sale for $14.95.

Because of a love for the color pink, as well as for the look of the plant, it came home with me.

My SIL told me, via cell phone text, (after I sent him a photo of it), that it was probably floxglove.

When looking up foxglove, the descriptions were anything but appealing.

Apparently, it is very toxic and can be fatal if ingested in even little quantities?

Oh NO!  Is this true?

It is apparently used in digitalis, a drug used to treat heart problems? 

DOES ANY GARDNER OUT THERE KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT FOXGLOVE THAT YOU CAN SHARE? IS IT SAFE TO GROW IF THERE ARE KIDS IN THE YARD?

The Gift of Today



Hello Dear Blog Peeps...

Hope you are feeling fine this sunny June day.

Isn't it wondrous to see brilliant sunshine and to feel its warmth on one's face?


I hope something exhilarating happens to you today.

June is such a joyous month, isn't it?

Flowers are blooming everywhere and birds are singing in the tree tops.

One near our house has a singing voice that is absolutely guaranteed to make you smile.

 And a frequent visitor cardinal delights onlookers with his flashing red feather finery.

Today, as all days, the key to happiness is living in the moment.


Each new day of life is something to celebrate.

WOULD YOU TELL US ABOUT SOMEONE YOU ADMIRE AND WHY?

May All Fathers and Father-Figures Be Blessed Today & EVERY Day


Fathers have huge influence in the lives of their children.

They teach a child what is important to make it in this
life.

They demonstrate dedication, faith in God, forgiveness, hard work, humility, and, love.


                                                      ( My Dad as a soldier in the U.S. Army, Infantry.)

Their encouraging words can help a child feel confident whether it's while learning to tie a shoe or making it through the maze of college applications.

When the world closes in and a little heart is breaking, a father's warm embrace can make everything okay again.                 
                                                                      
My own late father's love helped me throughout all the decades of my life.

Even today, I can laugh over many funny things he said, all those years ago, when life was simpler and worry-free. 

                                                                     Daddy
My husband is also a great father to our children and dedicated grandfather to our grandchildren.

Our son and son-in-law are also great dads so I have been incredibly blessed and am deeply grateful.

A happy and blessed Father's Day to fathers and father-figures everywhere.

WHAT DO YOU FEEL IS THE BEST THING A FATHER CAN TEACH A CHILD?
