SPLASH OF SPRING



I needed to post a Splash of Spring after my last sobering blog.
This actually could have been another " I " word. Ice Plant.
The purple color is so vivid and vibrant.
Don't you think the inside of the flower is fascinating?
It looks like its made with fiber-optics.
Enlarging the picture will give you a closer look.
Have a wonderful weekend every one.

Thank you for these colors, Sue!

You have to remember, that if you put my home on US`s map, you could find it somewhere between Anchorage and Fairbanks :)

Nice day to you, Sue!

I am so thankful that your husband is ok! When I read that I stopped typing and started praying. I am praying that God will keep your husband safe from further harm. I am praying that you will still be able to go on your mission trip! I am thankful you have such a great family that supports and loves you. You are a blessing to so many. You make my heart thankful Miss Sandy! God bless you this weekend. I will keep your husband in my prayers! XO Love, Becky
