Papa goes crazy shopping - and Thanks for all words and Thoughts

Dear Blogger Friends
my mind is about to come back to reality after Ruben's sudden death.
To day I went to the Green House.
Everybody that do know me closely, they do know: Tor at a Green House= Tor is broke - LOL.

Yes, I do admit it: I love flowers and plants.
Then, what's more natural then that give you, me dear reader, a short sight of our new Summmer Flowers here in our Summer Paradise, as a "Thank You" for all kind words, blessings and Prayers regarding Ruben.
Believe me when I write:
Every single letter, comment, e-cards and phonecalls did cheer us up. It was very important for us.

Hello I say to my self,
don't forget the Flowers. Here they are.

Flowers in our outside fireplace


Some Flowers I did bought today. The Blue ones (looks white here) are named Felica - like my Cat;))

Violas etc

Looking down from the Platform

Felicia - the blue and yellow - the others are of course Dahlia's

Lilacs - seen from our Platform - what a wonderful smell
All photos in this post is taken by myself. My feet will prove that fact.

the flowers are gorgeous. i especially love the brilliant colors of the dahlias. i wish i had a green thumb but unfortunately my property is very shady and i am not very skilled with gardening, but i so very much appreciate seeing the gardens of those who know what they are doing.

i hope the flowers and the gardening brings you joy.

If I would have a place for a little garden there would be a lot of flowers, or only flowers!

What a nice garden you have Tor!

Glad to see you blogging again. And that it seem to be lovely at your summerhouse now and not that winter weather like before...

Well, I sure know how that is. To get broke on flowers. I did that a lot when I had a garden. Of course it helped that the nearest neighbor were a plant school.... *giggles*

Lovely, lovely flowers. Haven't seen that Felicia before, but i must admit that I love all Dahlias. The comes in so many shapes and colors!!!!

Tor, you were kind enough to stop by my blog back in March and say 'hello.' I wanted to let you know that learned the news about Ruben in a comment on someone else's blog.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Please know that you and your family are in my prayers.
