Agreed. Joanne deserves these beautiful flowers and more!
Marty Damon: I wish that I could give the more she so richly deserves.
Gorgeous profusion of color!
Sharon Quails: I love them too.
The glorious colours, EC. Thank you. I needed them today!
Marie Smith: I don't like the sound of that. Are you ok?
Sleeping is an issue for me. Can't seem to sleep regular hours and when I do, I'm not rested when I wake. There's a lot going on right now and the lack of sleep is not helping and is worsened by the situation. Some days I am dragging my feet and the rest of me too. Yesterday was such a day. Thanks for asking EC.
Marie Smith: Thank you for replying. There is a reason so many cultures use sleep deprivation as torture. It is. I hope things settle for you. Hugs.
You ARE a bearer of blooms to many of us!
Cloudia: Thank you. So many people give me so much. I try and reciprocate.
Such variety. They are lovely. x
Bea: They are. Vivid harbingers of spring.
Just look at them. They look just like anemones! And not upside down! How I wish I had the stamina to visit the southern hemisphere. Thank you.
Joanne Noragon: I wish you had the stamina to visit here too. A lot.
Very beautiful. I take it Anenomes is a type of flower?
Alex J. Cavanaugh: They are. Spring bulbs. In theory they are perennial, but I plant them each and every year.
Dear ECBeautiful colours to brighten everyone's day.Best wishesEllie
Ellie Foster: Thank you. I hope you day is bright and beautiful.
Awe, this is very sweet, and they made my day as well! Smiling blossoms!
Karen S.: Thank you. We all need splashes of colour in our world.
Wonderful flowers, for Joanne, nice.
Bob Bushell: Thank you.
Jamie Ghione: And a big thank you to you as well.
Gorgeous. Mine this year were pitiful. I may give up on them.
donna baker: Ours weren't good last year, but are making up for it this.
Oh my goodness, those are gorgeous!
Anne in the kitchen: Aren't they lovely?
every one of them is beautiful! and what a lovely thing to do :)
kylie: Thank you. Joanne is a truly lovely woman who has been doing it tough. Very tough.
They are so beautiful, and Joanne has indeed had a year that needs beauty in it.
jenny_o: We all need beauty. Joanne's needs are perhaps more pressing than most though.
They are lovely. I've been holding helpful healing thoughts for Joanne for a while now. Here's a thought. Let's get her address and every body send her a 'thinking of you' card. Could we do that?
only slightly confused: That sounds like a lovely idea. Do you have her current address?
I do. if you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will give it to you.
only slightly confused: Thank you.
A wonderful idea, Delores. I'm in. (EC has passed on the address)
jenny_o: I think it is a stroke of genius. Anyone who wants the address please contact me or Delores.
yes please, I'll buy a card while shopping on Saturday.
Thank you fur gathering all of these beautiful flowers to brighten our day(s).
Martin Kloess: I am glad to hear they do.
Very nice EC, the colors are beautiful, our best wishes for Joanne.
Jimmy: Thank you. She needs all the good wishes she gets. And deserves them too.
What a beautiful bouquet for Joanne. I am sure it lifted her spirits.
Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe: I hope so. I wish I could do more.
Beautiful flowers, and a beautiful thought.
Alexia: Thank you.
Because it is Rosh Hashana, let me wish you & Joanne shanah tovah (a good year)!!
fishducky: And to you and yours.
Very kind of you to dedicate such a post to your friend! And I didn't even know there was a flower that shared such a name.
John Wiswell: To my shame I am not good on the botanical names of plants. Like Joanne, I have a soft spot for anenomies.
Six of the photos haven't loaded for me, they may show after I publish my comment, it's happened before. The ones I did see are gorgeous, I love the red one. My anemones seem to have gotten lost, I saw only three this year, pale, pale purple, but the freesias are doing well and starflowers too. The bluebells are leafy, no sign of blooms yet.
River: I am glad to see from your follow up comment they have loaded. We have had a bumper year this year. Our freesias are still in bud, as are the ranunculas. The starflowers are in flower - and the cockatoos are ripping them out.
Yep, there they are. I've never seen a pink and white anemone.
River: Isn't it lovely?
Hi EC - those are stunning photos ... these little flowers were one of my mother's favourites and whenever I could get her a bunch I did ... I call them the jewels ... absolutely lovely to see. Reminds me of Cornwall too - as these are where my first memories of these incredible flowers are from ... cheers Hilary
Hilary Melton-Butcher: They are jewels aren't they? And my mother loved them too.
Such kindness to recognize a friend with things of beauty that she loves and cherishes. Kudos to you for planting such lovely flowers each year. You're the best, EC! Hugs...
RO: Blushing and shuffling feet. Thank you. And thank you for visiting Joanne.
I love all the different varieties - so beautiful. So nice of you to send this bouquet to Joanne.
Lynn: Aren't they lovely things. And it was a pleasure to send the bouquet to Joanne.
Beautiful flowers. I can see why she loves them. Hope her year improves greatly.
Mason Canyon: Thank you. I hope it does too. And quickly.
Those are beautiful flowers. I hope things go better for your friend.
Ann Bennett: Thank you.
They are beautiful and could you give Joanne an extra one from me?
Jono: Will do. I will see which ones are blooming later today.
Hugs to Joanne
Author R. Mac Wheeler: I am sending many cyber hugs her way. I hope you are nearly at the end of your Irma clean-up duties.
Absolutely stunning. I'm sorry Joanne is having a tough time. What a beautiful way let her know you're standing by her. Hope things improve for her.Elsie
Elsie Amata: Thank you so much.
Thank you for giving flowers to Joanne. I don't know what has happened in the past year, but this post has to make her feel better. You're a good person and I'm glad to know you. Happy Spring!
DJan: I hope it does. I really hope it does. And wish I could do more.
Such beautiful flowers!
SHON: Thank you. Spring is here now - and beautiful.
Patricia A. Laster: Aren't they?
They're so pretty! I hope she likes that and I hope her year improves.
Robert Bennett: I hope so too.
Pretty! She will have at least a few moments of pleasure when she sees these
Sue in Italia/In the Land of Cancer: I think she did.
Gorgeous flowers. I'm sure she will like them.Greetings from London.
A Cuban in London: I am pretty sure she did, and very glad.
These look so pretty, I'm sure she appreciates the thoughts here.All the best Jan
Lowcarb team member ~Jan: How I wish that my thoughts could create positive changes for her.
Such beautiful flowers. I love flowers though my care peters out by this time of the year.
Natalie Aguirre: Welcome and thank you. We are just moving into Spring and the garden will claim a lot of my time and energy. And money.
Blooming beautiful photos of beautiful blooms. I'm sure they've brightened up Joanne's life, and she grateful for your thoughtful gesture, EC.They surely have brightened up my day. :)
Lee: Thank you. It is hard to see the colours without smiling isn't it?
The flowers are beautiful a reminder of spring. Today is the last day of summer and we have had unusually warm temperatures. I am enjoying it really!
Truedessa: We change our seasons on the first of the month rather than the solstices (which strikes me as silly). The first month of spring is nearly gone. I hope your autumn is gentle and beautiful.
Beautiful flowers. Spring has arrived!!! : )
Caterina: It most definitely has. And is getting warmer by the day.
What lovely flowers! I see you now have spring!
Lady Fi: Spring is being a bit fickle, but she is definitely here. Mostly.
They're just absolutely beautiful!
Strayer: Thank you. I think they are lovely too.
Beautiful, each and every one of them, how kind and thoughtful you are, I send my own best wishes to Joanne from over the seas and hope things get much better soon X
All Consuming: I hope with all the positive wishes for Joanne that her life does turn around for the better. Soon. Hugs.
Sandi: Thank you.
Your flowers are gorgeous, and whatever difficulties your friend Joanne has been having, I hope your pictures lift her heart and put a smile on her face.
Susan: I hope so. I really hope so.
Your anemones are just like you, my dear! Thank you :-)
neena maiya (guyana gyal): The flowers are much brighter and more beautiful. But thank you.
Knowing little of gardening, I had to turn to my friend Merriam-Webster for this: Definition of anemone1 :any of a large genus (Anemone) of perennial herbs of the buttercup family having lobed or divided leaves and showy flowers without petals but with conspicuous sepals — called also windflower
Granny Annie: I would argue with the Merriam-Webster oracle today. I know anenomies as plants in the family Ranunculaceae. Whatever the name, they are bright and beautiful.
Most delightful and colorful Worth many smiles.
Rasma Raisters: Thank you. I smile at them each year.
A sweet and endearing gift for your friend Joanne. I wish for her a much happier year than she has had.
Denise inVA: Thank you. I hope all the cyber wishes for Joanne take root.
Exquisite, just exquisite, and just what I needed to see today. I hope they bring many smiles to Joanne
Kim: Thank you. I hope you are feeling much better - and staying out of hospital.
These are beautiful. With fall settling in here- these spring blooms look so cherry and bright. :) ~Jess
DMS ~Jess: Thank you for backtracking through my posts. I really appreciate it. Summer is rapidly approaching here.
