There are times when words just aren’t enough.
So I send flowers on my blog to individuals going through happy times, sad times — or just because.
This time, the flowers are for someone whom many of you may remember: my friend Valerie. With husband Chris, pet dogs, chickens, their beautiful gardens, home and farm — Val graced these pages about 4 times in the last two years, and many more times through her kind comments here.
Val is very ill right now. These flowers are sent to her from bloggers who read about her and from my own family too.
Love and prayers, dear Val and Chris.
I thank you for welcoming my blog community into your home, and above all, thank you for being you.
**Blogger friends: You are welcome to send a flower for Val. I will add it here.

My thoughts and prayers are with Val.
Thank you, Jill. Much appreciated.
Sent you a couple of photos to add. Take your pic. Or pick 😀
Good wishes sent to her from all of us here.
Thanks so much, K. I’ve added one.
What a lovely way to support Val and Chris. You’re a gem Cynthia.
I can’t see how to add a flower. I’ll try another way. 🙂
Send it to me and I’ll add it, Brad. Thank you.
I put it on your Facebook post about this.
Yes, I saw it. Thanks very much, Brad.
Cynthia, what a beautiful bouquet for a lovely lady. You’re a kind and thoughtful friend. These flowers speak love. Thank you for including the links to the posts so we can visit her gorgeous home again.
Blessings of comfort & peace for Val, her family, and her friends ~ Wendy
Thanks for the beautiful flowers you sent for Val, Wendy. And this kind message to Val and her family and friends.
Hi, not sure how to send over one of my flower pics….nevertheless, I do hope and pray, Val feels better soon. 🌻💐🌹~ all the best to you Val. ~ Janette
How kind of you, Janette. Thank you.
What a gorgeous enormous bouquet. Brings joy to my day too. 🙂
Thanks for your part in it, Gallivanta. Much appreciated.
That is a beautiful thing to do, sending flowers! Wishing Val all the best for a speedy recovery. She and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Thanks so much, Lavinia.
My email isn’t working at the moment, so here is a link to some flowers from our farm.
Beautiful, Lavinia. Thank you.
Now, pls. tell me and other bloggers how you did that!
I have this photo in my WordPress media library. All one has to do is go to the media library, click on the image, and cut and paste the URL information for the photo into a comment. I found when replying to others in my own posts I could include the link to one of my own photos and insert it into a comment reply.
And my outbound email is working again. 🙂
Best wishes to Val and I hope she enjoys her lovely bouquets.
Thanks for your contribution, Amy. That is very thoughtful of you.
Thanks for using one of my photos for this post Cynthia! May all of them brighten Val’s world. Love, N 🙂 ❤
Thank you, Natalie, for kindly sending Val your special flower.
You’re so very welcome Cynthia! It was my pleasure❣😘
Prayers for Val will be added to my list.
Thank you so much.
I’ll email you for it, Derrick.
Oh dear – I don’t know how to do this – I’ll try again
You did it! How beautiful.
I can’t help but think that this will give Val a smile and a lift!
I hope so too, Kerry. Thank you.
What a lovely idea. I hope your friend Val gets a smile from all the flowers and your words.
I hope so too, Bernadette. Thank you.
I read that post about her chickens – so fun. Sending my best wishes!
Such a kind thought Cynthia – my thoughts and prayers are with Val and her family and friends. I love the bouquet and would like to contribute but am away from home at present with no photos stored on this old netbook.
Thank you very much, Clare, for the kind thoughts for Val and family.
Don’t mention it Cynthia xx
Had to blunder about before figuring out how this worked 😉 Here’s a flower for Val.
Thank you, for figuring it out Laurie. I have put your flower also in the body of the post.
I truly hope these offerings will lift Valerie’s spirits.
I think they do, Jason. Thank you. Why don’t you add a picture of one of your lovely clematis flowers?
I tried … but I couldn’t figure out how.
I’ll email you.
What a thoughtful idea, Cynthia. Not sure if this will work, but here is a try to send some flowers. These ones look hopeful to me.
am typing too fast, Cynthia. sorry about the typo on your name!
am really typing much too fast 😦 These flowers are from Chris, in Canada
No worries. I didn’t catch it! (“You can call me anything, just don’t call me late for dinner….”)
The flowers are just beautiful. So kind. Thinking of you Val .. Get well soon.
Thanks for your kind comment, Julie.
They’re all beautiful, Cynthia! 😊
Thank you, Kev.
What beautiful flowers, best wishes coming from Texas – my thoughts are with you.
On behalf of Val and Chris, thanks so much, Mary. I know the flowers and the wishes have been uplifting to them.
I absolutely love this idea and will be sending flowers and prayers! xo
Thanks, Teresa. I look forward to it, and thanks for the prayers for Val and Chris.
Sending healing wishes for Val, and Cynthia, thank you for such a lovely idea.
Thank you, Jeanne.
I’ve sent a flower pic for Val. 😉
Many prayers for Val and Chris both during this difficult time!
Beautiful idea Cynthia – hope your friend gets well soon!
You brought tears to my eyes with this post and the other one about Valerie, what a kind idea Cynthia, and what a beautiful epitaph. This is a lovely way to remember and pay respects to another loved human, it’s interesting how much the internet has influenced us here too. take care Poli
This was a wonderful idea Cynthia. I recognized a number of your visitors as I visit them too. It’s like walking through a neighbourhood where you actually know your neighbours. I’m feeling like I surely missed an opportunity to meet someone quite lovely when I saw Valerie with her chickens on your current post. ❤
