Flowers And Friends Are Better Than Diamonds

Gorgeous pink flowering tree

I’d rather have roses on my table
than diamonds on my neck.

So much beauty in one tiny flower

are a proud assertion
that a ray of beauty
out values
all the utilities of the world.

Rockin' Friends Spotlight of the Week

This is the weekly post where I spotlight my Rockin’ Friends who are the Top Nine active participants and loyal followers in my community! If you want to be mentioned here next week, then all it takes is to come in and start chatting with everyone in my community.

This week we solidified the fact that many of us like to talk to ourselves. We have a very active thread in The Redhead Riter’s, Witty, Intelligent and Addictive Community where you can enter alone and just talk to yourself. Some people are better at it than others, but I think it is one of the funniest threads of conversation I’ve ever read. I’m going to end up cracking a rib because I laugh so hard at some of the things discussed when people are talking to themselves. We were all should probably wear white jackets (wink).

With a big, heartfelt thank you for their participation and friendship, here are the Rockin’ Friends this week in order of most participation. I am also posting the number of comments they made, so that you can see how dedicated and devoted they are to each other and the community.

Rockin' Friends

I’m so glad that I’ve been able to become friends with these lovely ladies who are so active in my community. I encourage you to add their blogs to your blogroll, but also come over and chat with us in my community.

For everyone mentioned in the top nine this week, feel free to grab the Rockin’ Friend badge below (Yeah, we do crazy poses like that too because we are stylish LOL) and thank you for your participation!!

Rockin' Friend

Until the spotlight next week…Happy Chatting Rockin’ Friends!

Until next week…Kiss your family, hug your friends and don’t forget to be the friend you would like to have around.

I am spellbind by your photographs of the beautiful pink flowers and the quotes that accompanied them. All I can think is, "What an incredible talent you are!" I am speechless, which does not happen often to me.

Congratulations to the Zany Housewife — you did a remarkable job of posting last week!

Like Joan they were amazing! Reminded me of a day with Alyssa. I could almost smell her shampoo, the memory was so real. Thank you. It also took me back to the azales in our back yard and you and Aud so tiny, thank you for the memory.

I don't believe it! You made Joan speechless!!

Seriously Red, your pictures are beautiful and so are you. You have made the most awesome community on the Internet. Where else can grown people talk to themselves all day long????

You're right! I can't believe I made Joan speechless either.

Thank you. I'm glad you enjoy the photos, blog and community. To answer your question, I'm not sure there is ANYWHERE else on the internet that people can talk to themselves all day long LOL
