Heart Bouquet and Birthday Wishes

Every time I walk outside and see this, I think it looks like a heart :-)
 I've been a little under the weather this week, so I haven't been able to get around to visit many of you.  
Thanks so much to everyone who entered my giveaway. There's still time to enter here.  
I'll be posting the winner on Friday :-) Good luck!
We've got lots of flowers blooming right now. 
I love the pink edges on these mums.
A special "Happy Birthday" to my Dad! He's turning 85 tomorrow.
You can read about this wonderful man here if you'd like :-)
  Blessings to all of you,

    I love the mum heart - I definitely see it too :)

    Your dahlias are gorgeous as well.

  22. Hi Marcia,
    Happy birthday to your dear Dad! I will say a prayer that his day is a blessed one, and one also for you to feel better.
