Our good neighbor, and friend, Wayne, brought us not one, but three, Rose of Sharon cuttings. Here Mickey is holding up the two smaller pink blossom ones.
This is the large white bloosom one after Mickey got it planted.

I have recently been blessed with three awards that I am just now getting around to acknowledging.

This is the first time this has ever happened to me, but I cannot remember who gave me this Beacon Of Hope Award. I feel so ashamed and terrible about that. Please forgive me for my forgetfulness but thank you so very much for blessing me with this award. It especially meant a lot to receive it because of the name, Beacon Of Hope. If you read this blog and remember it was YOU please leave me a comment so I can acknowledge you properly.

This Brillante Weblog award came from my sweet friend, and fellow prayer warrior, Michelle, of Ozarks Sew N Sews. I received this award August 9th. Every time I see the name of her blog, Ozarks Sew N Sew, I marvel at the appropriate and oh so cute name!!! Thank you so much Michelle. You are always an encourager to me and your sweetness is a true blessing to many of us in blogland.

This sweet I Heart Your Blog was received yesterday from Melinda, The Nest Egg. Thank you so very much Melinda. This one especially meant a lot to me because Melinda is a fairly new reader of Penless. Melinda can teach ALL of us a lot about couponing so be sure and visit her blog.

Love that! Our neighbor brought us things like that ... she has since been moved to a nursing facility. I miss her :(

Tell Mickey I say, "hi."

I love Roses of Sharon. I have a white one in the front yard. I would like to get more. They are so beautiful...part of the hollyhock family.

Congratulations on your awards!

I had never heard of Rose of Sharon until I started blogging and a few bloggers showed pictures of theirs...they are such beautiful flowers!! How wonderful that your neighbour gave you some cuttings, I'm sure you will enjoy them for years to come:-)

Congratulations on the well deserved awards, my friend. If I don't write myself a note of who gives me what award, then I completely forget! lol xoxo

Congratulations on all your new awards Susan. You truly deserve them.
And how blessed you are to have gotten the Rose of Sharon plants. They will give you years of pleasure.
I have one which has a dark purple-blue blossom but the deer eat it every year.
I am hoping to hang some blood-meal bottles on it before next spring. That is the only thing I have ever found that keeps them away with the exception of a shot gun.

My dad gets so excited when someone gives him cuttings from a beautiful plant! Such sweet neighbors! and how is Mickey feeling these days? I haven't been on line much to keep up with everybody.

Congrats on your lovely awards! I hadn't seen those particular ones before. Its nice to see some fresh ones out there and the fact is, they were given to someone very deserving of their titles!

Oh , by the way - I deleted those stupid spam comments left at my place about the "lotto"!
