Blue, Purple...Periwinkle!

Last year around this time, I set about focusing on my flower beds and borders. Planted some new roses and perennials, realigned some edges and moved a few already established plants left long ago by the predecessors of my home in this beautiful valley.

I had kind of forgotten about all that work.

Then May happened,
and all the blooms have been a delightful surprise.

{Thank you Lynne}

I have been drawn to the many shades of blue and purple all around me.

You see, Periwinkle is the color of support for Stomach and Esophageal Cancers.
That ugliness has invaded the very core of our family.

For the past several months, we have had a compassionate and knowledgeable medical care team, and help and love from dear ones at a moments notice.
Most of all, we have a Faith filled Family and a good outlook for the future.

{Gifts of encouragement}

But if a color could cure my beloved,

we have that covered.☺

Now I know why I needed periwinkle colors in my
large pots, arrangements this year.
I will double up, triple up on that caring and prayerfulness . . .
for your love and for you . . .
Hope you replaced those pinks with some periwinkle . . .

so sorry to hear of the troubles with cancer...cancer seems to pop up in one form or another in all families. Will pray.

I'm so glad you have this glorious beauty around you right now.

I love all those beautiful "surprises" in your garden this spring.
I will be holding your family in my prayers. And I will be thinking of you all every time I see these beautiful blues and purples in the landscape.
