Well, just thought I would carry the baby theme over here from my other blog, lol!!! This weeks flower is of course, 'Babys Breath'. Such beautiful arrangements are made using babys breath. Babys Breath is a romantic description of the masses of delicate white flowers and who could argue with this when you compare the clouds of flowers to the frosty breath of an newborn on a winter’s day. And as some members of this plant family like lime soils, the Greeks used gypsos meaning ‘lime’ and philos, ‘loving’ to describe this plant family.Babys Breath blooms in white and a pale pink and gives us these blooms in early to mid-summer to delight our cut flower baskets. Plant babys breath 24 to 365 inches apart and do not add peat moss to the planting soil. It prefers an alkaline soil (a handful of lime scattered around the plant after planting is a good idea) and soils that are high in organic matter.Just a little info on what we have all seen, and some of us may even have it planted in our yards. Take care everyone.

"A Baby's Prayer"

Thank you my dear Heavenly Father up above for sending me to this family so full of love.For their teaching me of your gentleness and of your constant spiritual caress.
How thin that veil is between me and you as I look up at the sky so blue.I still can feel the sense of your comfort and peace and I pray that may it never, ever, cease.
I will try very hard to remember your teaching so that one day, when I feel your hand reaching Out to help me on my journey home,I know that I won't ever be alone.And may my friendships be chosen with care as I remember that you are waiting there; For me to return to your loving embrace as I so dearly want again to see your face.
In Jesus name,
