Autumn Floral Note Cards

Okay – so it’s been done before.  But, really – do we ever tire of a few good floral shots?  I know I don’t!

This is how I felt when my friend, Jeanette brought a n incredible bouquet of fresh flowers to church for foyer decor last fall.  I was captivated by the variety and striking beauty of each bloom – and the artful arrangement of same.  Camera at the ready – I clicked away, for such a time as this:  Note Card Party in Autumn!

I thought to share this choice four shots from the bunch as Jeanette has been much on my heart.  Earlier this month we had to say farewell to her beloved husband, Bob, who went to be with the Lord after a patient wait for a double lung transplant.  Not to be – the Lord had some flower tending in the heavens for him.  His memorial service was bittersweet – but the most joy filled celebration of a life passing I’ve ever attended.

Bob and Jeanette owned a small but luscious flower farm named for her – Jeanette’s Bloomers – but she always said that he was the expert.  Back in June I shared a post of my visit HERE – and still enjoy the fruit of the seedling florals Bob made up for me at the time to transplant in our own front garden.  He will be missed.

So – sharing the fruit of his and her labors from a year ago, I hope you enjoy . . .

Praying Jeanette knows God’s peace.

Sharing Autumn Floral Note Cards this month at A Haven for Vee.

  14. I truly love your selection and would not only use them as note cards but frame them for the house. They’re beautiful.
