TODAY'S FLOWERS #408 - May 13th, 2016

Thank you to all who participate in this meme.  Your support is always appreciated, and I don't have enough words to let you know just how much.


Today's Flowers opens on Friday at 12.00 a.m., and closes the following Thursday at 11.00 p.m.  Information about this meme can be found here.



My flowers this week were found in Meadowlark Gardens, my favorite local playground that we visit often throughout the year.















I made this mosaic using my own photographs and a film strip template that I found on Pixabay.  You can pick it up here if you are interested.  


Today's Flowers was created by Luiz Santilli, Jr. Thank you Luiz!  I am now its host. 


I am also linking with the following memes as they become available, with my thanks to our hosts.  Please click on their names to visit other participants.

I thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I enjoy reading them very much and always try to return a visit. As I do monitor comments it may take a while for them to appear, even quite late depending on what is going on and how much time I am able to spend on the computer.
