It rained all afternoon here in south Louisiana where I'm doing some volunteer work at the UMCOR Sager Brown mission. There was lightening and thunder and lots of wind. But when it passed I took a little walk before I was ready to settle into an evening of stitching. There are lots of flowers here and they always make me smile.....
I don't know what this purple flower is but mixed in with a few daisies it really shows off its' color.
And the color of this mum - it's as bright as the sun!
I think the daisies are my favorite....but then I spy a gardenia hiding down in the rain-soaked leaves.
Last night was the first night I've ever spent in this building alone I think, and probably it won't ever happen again. My husband had gone home to deal with the hail damage I showed you in my last post. Our little apartment is in an old dormitory that has 17 bedrooms besides our apartment. There was an orphanage and school on this campus from 1867 until 1972 so thousands and thousands of children have lived here, played here, worked here and gone to school here. In the quiet of the evening when I had no television on and I was stitching away on a small pattern I had just begun, I thought I heard the laughter of children.......and it was a comfort to me thinking of all those little ones who were safe and happy here during those years.
