Farewell To May

The end of the
May days.
A day at the nursery.
Toy planes at the park.
This gnarled tree looked
very mysterious.
Stressed spelled backwards
is desserts.  Coincidence?
I think not!

The first of my
pink roses.

Looking at my pink roses
through my blinds
The first of my
yellow roses.   I love
the color
when it starts to fade.
I get excited when I see
a ladybug
for so many reasons.  : )
The first of my
white roses.

aahh, my first red rose.
My son planted these
purple flowers
in my back yard.  He
has such a green thumb.
We'll see how
they do.
Chocolate chip cookies
and milk.....
it doesn't get much
better than that.

I've always wanted a gnome.
Found this one
at Hobby Lobby, and
he was too cute to pass up.
I always wish you
peace and tranquility.

Good Morning Dear Sheri,

Such a pretty post and perfect farewell to May.
It certainly went by too fast for me, our sweet family from California came home to us and the time sped by and now they are gone.

You do have a green thumb, Sheri even if you say you don't:)!
Look at your roses and the Ladybug is happy too.

Did I tell you that I love your new header and the way you have captured the light and that perfect red rose.

Thinking of you today and wishing you a lovely weekend.

Susie said...

Sheri, You are the queen of roses. :):) I love all of them. I bet they smell good too. The meditating frogs are cute. I am thinking of getting a few frog thingies for around our pond. Wishing you a wonderful weekend, hopefully with family close at hand. Blessings, love you, xoxo, Susie

Your roses are just beautiful, Sheri! A lovely way to say goodbye to May. I can hardly believe this month is just about over. Your little gnome is so cute. And the chocolate chip cookies have my mouth watering. Enjoy a beautiful weekend, dear one. ♥

Stephanie said...

My darling Sheri, your sweet roses have left my heart singing in joy...what beauty, my friend!

It's hard to believe May is coming to an end as it seems like it should be just the first of May.

Thinking of you, dear one. Sending LOTS of LOVE your way!

Sheri - Your flowers are so pretty. The yellow roses are always my favorite. I cannot believe it is almost June. Time goes so fast. I wish it would slow down a little bit.

Have a good weekend.


Gypsy Heart said...

Sheri, your son's green thumb is obviously inherited...your roses are just stunning! They would make me so happy to look out or walk out and see them. I'd love to have one of those cookies right now! :)

Have a beautiful Sunday my friend ~

And there's nothing like a budding, thriving garden to give us that peace and tranquility. I so believe that God made us ALL with that "gene" to need to be and want to be in the garden from way back with Adam and Eve. Honestly, I do.

Peace and joy to you daily my sweet friend. I have sure been getting VERY excited as I go for walks with my husband to look at all the magnificent gardens whether they are large or small. LOVE TO YOU! Anita

I love this kind of three and very lovely the flowers.

Oh Sheri ... I love the quote you've used here
" Stressed spelled backwards

May I please use it on a future blog post?

All of your photo's are perfect and what a lovely way to end this glorious month of May.
I wonder what June may bring for us?

Enjoy your weekend.

All the best Jan

I can't believe that May is almost over! Your roses are gorgeous Sheri! Have a wonderful weekend…

Weather wise may has been a peculiar month for us here in France. I'm not sorry to say goodbye. Your roses are looking beautiful. Thankfully my new rose bed plants have produced more buds after the frost had nipped all the early ones and they all turned black and fell off. So all I want now is warm sunshine, to help the new rosebuds bloom.

I love your roses. You have a rose green thumb. :-)
I have two rose bushes. They are just starting to bloom.

I would love a cookie. :-)


I was named for St. Therese. Love the quote. The flowers were gorgeous, the ladybug sweet. But that little gnome guy is just charming. ENJOY.

Jeanie said...

Oh Sheri, I love the gnarled tree and your roses take my breath away. Biggest sigh!

little flower raining from heaven. Oh, how this touched my heart.
You know how I love St. Therese.

Goodbye to May and hello to your first red, pink, yellow and white roses. St. Therese's words match the beauty of roses.
