A Sentiment

God knew what He was doing when He sent a gentle breeze and brought a lovely butterfly to set my heart at ease. The happiness of your friendship and the gentleness of your words have touched my life in special ways and now I feel assured. Thank you for your loyalty and for reading everyday. I only hope you find things to make a happy day.

The Giant Coffee Cup

Here's the giant coffee cup all planted with moss roses and looking so pretty on our small deck table. This was a birthday gift in March. I couldn't decide what to plant in it and saw these moss roses at a garden center and thought they might look pretty in the cup. Our deck is very sunny, when we don't have the sunbrella down....so these little posies love it. I think that I may plant these in some other spots next year. There's that "next year" that we gardeners always say.

Your giant coffee cup is perfect and looks adorable on the little table. I like that birds nest spruce below, too. I will have to see if they are here.

The moss rose picks up all the colors of your cup. It looks so pretty. Robin of 'Life in Robins Nest ' collects cups planters. She is going to want yours ;-)

Love your coffee cup with the rose moss in it. I use to have some of the rose moss in my yard,but after several years it was all gone, and I have never gotten any more. Maybe I will have to try some more next year.

I like your new picture at the top, and that coffee cup is so sweet... I haven't had any moss rose in quite a few years. My father-in-law loved them... We have had no rain all week! One week we complain we have too much and now not enough... lol never satisfied I guess...

Oh I love those giant coffee cup planters. And the moss rose was a perfect addition to it's colorful patterns. :)

I probably never would have bought this, but my DIL has a different vision that I do. She has a creative eye and thought I could do something with it.

Love your planter, I have never heard those called moss roses but how appropriate. I have them everywhere this year, they were my experiment. Unfortunately the rabbits seem to love them also and are eating away on them.
