Thanksgiving Bouquet

I'm pretty sure this will be the last of my garden flowers...some late flowering Calendulas. So I'm sending it as a virtual bouquet to all of you, and wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!


"It is a good thing to give thanks to the Lord,
And to sing praises to Your name, O Most High;
To declare Your lovingkindness in the morning,
And your faithfulness every night."
Psalm 92:1

Love the scripture passage and the beautiful bouquet and the blue vase. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Amazing, they are so undemanding 'thankful' to grow and wow they last forever!

I wonder if I can tempt you with an apple

Connie, what a beautiful bouquet of calendulas! I'm not sure if mine are still out there or not. Maybe a couple of blooms. I'll have to check on them tomorrow. We've been so busy lately, I haven't checked the garden in a few days!

I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving day! :-)

I just posted my new Calendula too. Your bouquet is quite lovely! It is quite satisfying, isn't it, to be able to present what is still growing, especially at this time of year!

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I love the picture - you are just so good at capturing the essense of things.

Hi Connie, what a lovely bouquet, I love calendulas but have trouble growing them in our heat, then the winters are too cold. I will enjoy yours virtually though, thanks! :-) Hope you holiday was the best ever.

Nice bouquet! We have a few calendulas still going too. I don't recall this in the past.
On our hike yesterday, we saw a few remaining wildflowers blooming too! I tried photos but it was a dark day, esp. in the woods so they didn't turn out.

Oh yes, I have fushias still blooming! I will try for photo tomorrow.
Best wishes - Paula

Realy nice the flowers. I love Calendula. In german we call them "Ringelblume". And for some month i'm searching for red calendulas. But nowhere i can find it. So next year in my garden are red zinnien.
In Germany its cold and wet.

That is absolutely beautiful! The blue mason jar is just the right color to accent the yellow and orange.

I am going down the list of blogs I follow because I haven't been keeping up, and I'm not sure if all of them are getting onto my feed.

This was a lovely bouquet and fitting Bible verse.
