Welcome to JOYFUL REFLECTIONS. My Header Picture for September 2021 shows a beautiful Sunset with the Shenandoah Valley below. My picture was taken from our room balcony while at Skyland Resort on 8/3/21.

Today I am continuing my Best of 2011 series... I'm featuring some of the beautiful flowers that we had in our yard in 2011 ---not counting our Roses (which were featured HERE). Sometimes, we talk about our Roses and don't feature these other beauties enough...
Hope you enjoy seeing more of the flowers from my blog posts in 2011. Hope these flowers are as pretty in 2012... BUT--I pray that spring doesn't come too early because we have been known to have a BIG FROST in early April... Remember 2007???? All of the spring flower/leaves DIED that year due to the frost... So very very sad!
Above are some of our early Spring flowers: our Daffodils (I grew up calling them Jonquils), Hyacinths, and Crocuses.... The early spring flowers are always so pretty. Be sure to click on the photos to see them larger.
On another note, please say a prayer for us this weekend. We have MUCH spring growth happening (due to our recent mild weather)---including new growth on the rose bushes. BUT--our temperature on Saturday night is supposed to go down into the low teens.. IF that happens, we could lose all of the new spring growth... SCARY!!!! But--there's nothing much we can do --except pray! Thanks!
Have a wonderful weekend and I will see you on Monday.
