This Memorial Day weekend I'm joining Beverly's Pink Saturday. My garden is usually full of pinks but after the recent hail storm it is still recovering. These pink knockout roses were in full bloom prior to our storms.
These hot pink peonies had just about finished blooming for the season.
The hail shredded the leaves off the trees, shrubs and pounded my newly planted annuals literally into the ground.
My son is holding almost baseball sized hail..the hail was larger than this when it fell and by the time we went outside had began to melt. There were up to softball sized as well.
We have spent many hours cleaning up the mess and I'm just now starting to replant a few things. While I was outside cleaning up my hydrangeas I got a pleasant surprise...
Mr. T (our resident turtle) came walking out of some branches and leaves that had been knocked to the ground. I was so thrilled...we don't keep him caged or penned up..so we never know when we will see him. I needed a positive lift as I was a little down from having to clean up so much damage to my garden...and out came Mr T!! I haven't seen him since last fall...I guess he hibernates.
I was reminded of God's care and concern for us...how much more does he care and love us than this little turtle that he placed in my path...and yet Mr T survived the storm and harsh winter. He knew I needed a special reminder and it just made
There's always a silver lining to any of life's storms we face. Sometimes we just have to rejoice
in the small things!
Hope you have a wonderful Pink Saturday and Memorial Weekend!
