Today's images are courtesy of our friends Martha and Russell who just returned from a cruise aboard the Queen of the Mississippi. They had a fabulous time and I appreciate having these images they sent so I can share them here.
Thank you, Martha and Russell, for sharing the great images of your wonderful river cruise.

These lovely blossoms blew down from our huge catalpa tree in our front yard during a storm. The aroma is of these flowers is amazingly sweet and wonderful. I'm sorry I can't share the aroma with you here on the blog. :)

The cicadas have arrived. This year's batch isn't the "big invasion"expected two years from now, but they are making their presence known.
We once had a dog who loved to catch and eat them. They are edible by humans, too, but I'll pass.

It has been almost a week since Mothers Day and my roses are still beautiful. My Honey was so sweet he asked me what I wanted and, at this time of the year, something that we can plant outside is so very nice to have.
So far, we are enjoying this beautiful little rose bush on our patio table. Eventually, it will join the other flowers in the front garden.

Now that we are retired and at home more than we have been for the past 20 years, I'm able to cultivate our indoor garden as well as our outdoor garden.
This basket of plants was a gift to our daughter more than a year ago. She brought it home where it has been happily blooming and trying to outgrow its basket ever since.
A few days ago I finally did a major grooming job and used cuttings to start other plants. I'm hoping to have some lovely plants to take to Catherine's office waiting room. It would be fun to have "children" of the original basket to take there.
How is your indoor garden growing?
