Dogwood Just Before Dusk and a Bit About Vee

My kitty, Oliver, had run up this 
tree and was looking quite 
adorable against the pink blossoms.
So I ran for the camera
with "encouraging" words from
my husband ringing in my ears.
He said Ollie would be out of the 
tree by the time I returned
but I didn't want to hear it.

Of course he was right.
Oliver was done up there.
But I decided to play with the 
sun, blue sky and tree 
anyway.

This is what I got....












The flowering trees don't stay 
this gorgeous very long
but we enjoy them....
a lot.

In a sigh of relief,
that package that I was concerned
about arriving safely
did so.

My customer sent me an 
email last evening to let me 
know that her mother was thrilled.
I am soooo relieved.
Thanks to Vee
for letting me know that
she was praying with me
for its safe arrival.
I really appreciate it!!!

Speaking of Vee...
have you visited her blog,
It is a place I go every day
for my piece of quiet Americana.
Vee is a talented writer and 
is very warm and friendly.
You'll like her too.
I just know it.

I see Vee comment on blogs that I read all over blogland - we must be kindred spirits to have the same friends online! :) I just forget to check her blog - so today I am going to add her to my sidebar - then I won't forget!

Your dogwoods are beautiful! I adore dogwoods...and don't have any. I must remedy this!

No doubt that the package would get there without damage, your packing protects the goods:)

Your pictures are BEAUTIFUL! You are correct, the blooms don't last too long but oh the enjoyment we get for a short time is wonderful!

Have a blessed day dear Becky! HUGS!
