AS WE SETTLE INTO THE NEW YEAR....


there is so much going on in the world and I won’t say any more except that from the bottom of my heart, and as I learn of the news and see the photos and videos that are heartbreaking and horrifying, my family and I will be pulling for you.  We are not oblivious and do not take any of our days for granted.

With love and hugs to all, 
Denise

    1. Ah Ginny, sad place indeed. Each day I wonder what else I will be reading in the news. Does look like a porcupine. The plant is the dried head of the coneflower, also known by the name of Echinacea which I read comes from the Greek word ἐχῖνος (ekhinos), meaning "sea urchin", due to the spiny central disk. It does look like a sea urchin don't you think?

  9. After WWII the thought was ... this was the war to end all wars. We have learned our lesson.

    Seems we haven't a lesson. :( And things go on with greed and grab as it has for thousands of years. Natural disasters are different. If only we could put our effort and resources to control those.
    I'm not too hopeful but glad we can share our thoughts here on a blog and encourage others that are in harms way. The plants seem to replenish after a disaster.

  10. You worded this post so well Denise. I do try to keep my blog a happy place, but sometimes (rather often these days) I feel cruel for not acknowledging the disasters of so many kinds. Thank you for doing this.

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.

I appreciate all who look at my blog, but I am unable to publish businesses or anonymous visitors.
