Lovely Things

Just some lovely things this week.

Remember the mini roses that I planted in my front yard?  Well, the pink ones started to bloom, but the other bush hasn't come around yet, so I still don't know what color it is.  This was the first pink rose, and I'm sending it to my sister-in-law because pink roses are her favorite.  And because she searched for many hours and helped find this house.



It is the prettiest color when it's in full bloom.



This one came out much lighter than the others.



My little angel guards my roses.



When I took another picture of my angel, this is what showed up.  I thought it was pretty.



On Memorial Day while driving down the road, I noticed two deer, so right away I pulled over.   I am always amazed when I see this animal.  They were getting ready to cross the street, so they came very close to my car. 



As the second one crossed the street, it was so close to my car that I could almost reach out and touch it.  



And then off they went.



The creek at Summertime.



There are bushes of Poppies here and there that grow alongside the creek.  The birds, once again, started to show up.....so many of them!











Mia showed me on Zoom her new camera, some of her new Summer clothes, and her footprint she painted.  Nel is working on a footprint project for Father's Day that she saw on Pinterest.







Jess sent me a few pictures saying that she was in the middle of nowhere in Native American land, Arizona.  She said it's beautiful and so different with all the red rock formations.  This is Francesca's 1st out of state road trip.







I've been drinking Starbuck's French Roast, and it suits me as I'm part French Canadian.  It's really good.



I found a pretty blouse in this mountain town!



I wondered if anything would bloom on the bush that's in my front yard, and was surprised to see white tiny flowers blossom.



Surround  yourself with lovely things, my friends, because there is too much nonsense in the world.  These are for you.  Well, because I love you.

Oh Sherri there are so many lovely things going on in this post, and every single shot is just gorgeous! Wishing you a week filled with more and more lovely things.

I loved the post and not sure where to start. Your little one is so cute. I miss my grandkids. They are so big now and in the army. They grow up too fast. The pink roses are so pretty and the angel I would say was running back into the garden so you could take its pictures. HA! HA! I love the mug and it is perfect.

Sheri, I just love your post. What a wonderful journey of all things wonderful, Yes, the way the world is right now, defiantly time to stop and smell the roses.

Hi Sheri, your pink rose bush is perfect. How kind of your sister in law to work diligently to find this home in the mountains for you. I love the views of the creek, the poppies, and deer. Your granddaughters are so sweet. Your new blouse is lovely and will look great with your dark hair. I think the bush in your yard with tiny white flowers is called Bridal Wreath Spirea. I read that you can cut off a long piece of it and form it into a head dress for a bride, that it is very pliable. Maybe you could make your angel statue a headdress.

Your pink rose is beautiful.
I would love seeing the deer too.
What a beautiful sight of the meadow with the creek and flowers.
Love the flowered top.
Sweet granddaughters.

Thank you for posting that makes me smile
Roses are always a treat to see blooming. One of those deers look pregnant.

Good morning sweet Sheri!

This is rose season and I'm glad to see that you too are enjoying them! My pink rose climber is dazzling and I'm enjoying every day of it!

Your countryside is GORGEOUS. We too saw some deer in a neighborhood by the lake, just eating grass from someone's lawn! There is magic in summertime, so enjoy every bit of it dear friend.

Gosh I loved everything - pink roses, the angel in your garden, the deer coming so close, the beautiful scenery and birds, poppies seemingly growing wild, I love Starbucks French Roast, your blouse, the tiny white flowers - just everything. You just seem to live in a fairy tale. I love it. Love your two granddaughters - they are so beautiful! You are right about enjoying life!

Your post was soothing. I love the roses and that cute little darling, oh and the teddy bear, too. Have a great day.

I agree! Surrounding ourselves with beauty makes life worthwhile!

Such a sweet post. Your roses are so pretty. I have a red mini rosebush in my flowerbed.

I love your pink rose. Pink is such a good color for a rose. The angel picture is very cool too. My Granddaughter has a camera too and she loves to take pictures. I bet your granddaughter will have a lot of fun with hers too! It is so pretty where you are. I am glad you get to enjoy the wild animals. They are so fun to see.

All the pictures are great but I LOVE that last one. I believe in having as much beauty around me as I can. Life is short and we should savor all the beautiful moments of it. Blessings to you and your sweet girls/grands. xo Diana

Your pink roses look like mine. You are living in a beautiful area that will bring much peace to your life. The deer are precious, aren't they? I just wish I could hug and kiss them! LOL

Hi, I always enjoy your posts Sheri, they make me smile when I am having a difficult day. Thank you.
The roses are lovely.
Thank you for sharing all that goodness with us.
Love, Carla

Your post was balm for an old heart! Thank you for sharing your photos so generously. I wonder if that white-blooming bush is going to make berries of some sort? The pink rose is just lovely. Of course the worrywart in me makes me warn you to drive very carefully around the deer, very slowly. They do go out in front of vehicles, poor creatures. I think that one deer might be having a baby?

Rajan Arora said...

The best part of your articles that they have perfect Content Quality and Quantity. Do write something on Slide Staining Rack also. Honestly, you posses great Writing Skills.

Debbie Nolan said...

Sheri your photos of the Rose's are so lovely. As for the deer-what a special capture. They are such lovely animals. Looks like Zoom is making Mia happy. Hope your other rose comes around too. Hugs!

Mica said...

That floral top is lovely and how nice you got so close to deer! Lots of pretty flowers in this post as the plants in your garden are blooming beautifully too! :)

Hope your week is going well and you have a nice weekend ahead of you :)

Yes, Sheri, it's important that we surround ourselves with beautiful things. That was a sweet column with great photos. A couple are spectacular. Hugs. Susan

Karen @ Beatrice Euphemie said...

Oh, these are lovely things and thank you so much for sharing them - I am smiling right now! So nice to see all the pretty flowers growing around you, the angel and the sweet little ones. Deer are such delicate and graceful creatures. I can't imagine anyone hunting them, it hurts my heart. Your new top is very pretty. Hugs for you xo K

hi Sheri, enjoyed the posting. I love my "deer friends", although we live in the city, there are alot of them more than I've ever seen in my life growing up. Oh those babies and their spots precious. I saw your comment over at the Merry Needle about your broken rosary. Check around with your churches ( Catholic ) in your area. Here in my are one of the Parishes has a Rosary Guild, they make and repair Rosaries. The native landscape is beautiful. I find cemetaries peaceful also, I especially like the older ones. I bought a mini rose and put it in the garden, it shouldn't have made it through the winter, but has, and in fact is on it's 3rd winter. The flowers are a beautiful pink, with a hint of muted green. My "deer friends" find it most tasty.
