An August Sunday in the Garden...


~Rain covered mornin glories~

~"Everybody needs beauty as well as bread,
Places to play in, where nature may heal
And give strength to body and soul."
~John Muir

My Garden is just that place for me!


~A lone Monarch on Verbena
but my first such visitor this yr.


~Dianthus starting to bloom again...


~A Beautiful August sunday in the Garden~

~Those who contemplate the beauty
of the earth find reserves of strength
that will endure as long as life last.
~Rachel Carson

~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~*~~
Hope everyone enjoyed a beautiful weekend
and a beautiful Sunday...
Hope you all have such a place to play in, where nature
may heal and give strength to body and soul
!!

Hi Cat,
Thanks for stopping by....I've missed your lovely pictures and hope you will post more. But I imagine you want to spend as much time outside in your garden as you can. You should join us in B&W Sunday...it's fun to see nature and flowers in total simplicity. You do take great color shots though!!!!
Enjoy your week!
Carole

Thank you Catherine for all the nice comments you left on my blog. Your blog is just wonderful and it takes me down memory line to my grandmother's garden in Croatia. She had so many beautiful flowers. That is the source of the inspiration for my artwork, flower seeds planted in my heart long time ago.
Looking forward to following your blog, and enjoying great images.

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

I have been scouting around at this web site and have found it to be pretty valuable. I would really get pleasure from all help.

Not too long ago, Louisville has surfaced as a major gathering place for the health care and professional medical sciences sectors. Louisville has been central to developments in heart and hand surgery treatment as well as cancer remedy. Quite a few of the earliest man made cardiovascular transplants were performed in Louisville. Louisville's blooming downtown medical research campus consists of the brand-new $Eighty-eight thousand rehabilitation gathering place, and a wellbeing sciences study and commercialization park that, in conjunction with the University of Louisville, has lured nearly Seventy leading scientists and researchers. Louisville is actually also home to Humana, one of the nation's greatest health insurance businesses.

Louisville is home to a lot of major businesses and corporations.
