The lavender is blooming!

I'm sharing some pictures from the garden today, especially the lavender that is attracting some rather beautiful visitors!


This Butterfly is called the L'Echiquier d'Occitanie in French.


This one is called Chatoyante Mélitée orangée.


Then I have a beautiful Hybiscus that gives me huge yellow flowers which brightens up the patio.


News about my MIL - she could go today or tomorrow, it is very close now. I haven't been too motivated to create a lot, but will share a card with the lovely Hydrangea from Hero Arts, above. Thank you all for the most heart warming comments on my last post, for your prayers and kind thoughts! I know that everything helps and only in Eternity will we know how much.
God bless
Jacqueline
