A Few more of my plants in flower

Hi Everyone,
Hope your all well where ever you maybe.
Today I went to Doctors for my yearly check up and to get the results on previous tests. Im pleased to say that I am still cancer free (in remission) I have one more test to go in 5 weeks time, and that hopefully will be it for another 12mths, besides my monthly blood workups etc.
Tonight I played Indoor carpet bowls, we lost our first game but won the next two, we had a good night. I have an early start tomorrow as my club, "Club Mulwala" is hosting the Ovens & Murray Division Lawn Bowls Pennant Grandfinal.
I will leave you with a few photo's from my garden...
I love this Rose "Impression" its looks so delicate.
Blue Moon in bud

I've lost the tag/label on this one, its a small potted rose.

Ive had this plant for a few years, Sedum "Ruby Glow". This is the first time it has flowered.

A close up of the flowering buds.

One of my many hanging baskets, I planted two colours of the same variety Calibrachoa:A million bells.

I took these at night so you are able to see the softness of the Belladonna lillies.
This Pink Begonia has been flowering for months.

My Sister, Pauline's Orange Begonia comming into flower


Happiness keeps you Sweet
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrows keep you Human,
Failures keep you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing,
But Only God Keeps You Going!

Dear Jan ~~ So very glad to hear that your test results were good. Breathe again for awhile. Your roses are beautiful and the other flowers. I had no luck with Million Bells. Glad you liked the Box Full of Love and as you say, a gift of love given by a child is the best present. The turkey dinner with sweet potatoes etc was yummy. The Don't step on the Ducks was a good joke. I liked the bit where St Peter (who doesn't miss a thing)
turned up. Good luck with the next test. Take care, much love, Merle

So happy you had good test results.

And so happy to see your lovely flower photos. As I look out the window at snow, snow, snow, which continues to fall.

What a treat it was to see all your flowers this morning while we're in the midst of a snowstorm, with most of the areas schools closed this morning.
'Impression' is exquistite, and you have some beautiful begonias. That angel wing is gorgeous. I love the sedum flowers. You certainly have a way with plants. They're gorgeous! I didn't realize you lived so close to Merle.
I'm so happy all your tests results were good!!
Love all the Bromeliad flowers too!
It's hard to believe our kids are that age, isn't it? Time sure goes by fast when you're having fun :)

The roses are simply beautiful plus all the others are just as grand. Your thumb must be green. Glad the test are coming out good and you're having fun bowling.

Your flowers are just lovely. I especially love the Rose Impression. It is a very delicate looking one.
I love the Million Bells too and I hope to get several this year. Those little darlings just keep blooming all summer.
Your begonia looks as big as a tree.
Thank God your test results have all come back good.

Hi Jeanette,

You have some very pretty flowers there, and I especilly enjoyed your roses and your lillies.

that begonia is the biggest one I've ever seen. Do they winter over in your greenhouse -- or do you have winter?

Hi Jen,
Great news about your test results - we can look forward to another year of jokes, right?
Love your flower should charge an entrance fee to visit your garden. There can't be too many left like that in Australia, after the last few years!

Very pretty flowers, Jan. Thank you for sharing them.
Some day show us a picture of your thumbs. They must be green as can be.

Gorgeous flowers, Jen. We have some of the same ones here but where I live they have to be house plants or planted as annuals. Our Winters are much too cold to leave them outside year round. I envy those with a tropical climate for their gardens and flowers.

Good news on your test results.

Hope your weekend is a good one, and good luck with your bowling. ;o)

Love and hugs,
