Good morning friend......I so love it that you change your banner with the seasons....and that owl is absolutely gorgeous.

Owls are such special creatures in God's creations.

Your blog is so pretty ... the photos are just beautiful. I read your comment on "Tales From The South" and loved the quote about always being every age we have ever been! Why have I never seen that before I will never know, but it is SO, SO true. I had to come to your blog to see who had written such a sweet comment! I am so glad I did. I love the photo of the old house with the red roses ... it does have something magnetic - I felt it simply by looking at the picture!!

Hi Julie,
Oh I love this owl sketch by one of my favorite artists. And the verse so fitting. Love the eyes of the owl and the shades in the sketch.
Your header is perfect. Wish we would start to cool down here. They say a cold front is on the way. 80's next week. Some cold front!! but we will take it. LOL

Have a great Friday.
Love to you, Celestina Marie

Love both Marjolein Bastin & Shelley (posted a Shelley quote on my flickr today) :-)

Such a perfect choice...
I love the roses from your last post. I had planted a David Austin rose in memory of my yellow lab that had passed away several years back and I'd love to try that. Wish me luck.
Have a great weekend.

Julie Marie, this reminds me of the other night when I had forgotten to go out and cover the tomato plants until after dark. I heard an owl in the tree directly out from the garden. It was such a lovely sound. It also is good to know the guy is there keeping my mouse population down. I love the hooting of an owl on an Autumn night.
The sketch is so pretty.
Have a wonderful weekend friend.

Happy Pink Saturday Miss JulieMarie!

I hope this finds you well my friend! I love your beautiful Owl! Breathtaking!

Now...has my Miss K's present reached you yet?

I have to tell you I sent it JUST LIKE SHE PREPARED it for you. You'll know what I mean once it arrives!

Love to you~

Hi sweet Julie Marie,
It is Simply Beautiful for certain, thank you for sharing!

Dear Julie Marie,
I kept wanting to come over to say thank you for your kind words but my heart just wasn't quite ready. I thank you for your sweetness about Gigi, I know you understand how I feel and the putting off that's some times okay to do. You showed me much kindness that I am carrying around with me now and for days to come. Thank you, sweet friend.
Love to you, Tracie
