Friday Faves...Viburnum!

My husband's grandma had a viburnum, a snowball bush as my husband calls it, in her yard.
He often commented about it, so of course we planted one in our yard too.

It's huge now, towering above the six foot fence that separates our yard from the neighbors.
It's so full of blooms this year that the branches are bent low under the weight.

On this week's gray, rainy Tuesday, when the phone rang with bad news,
I brought some viburnum inside to put in my old French canning jar,
I lit the tea lights in my mason jar lid inserts,
and breathed in the beauty of my right now while I waited for my husband
 to get home so we could go up to the hospital together.

 To all of those who read my post on Wednesday and are praying for the young mama in our church,
I want to say thank you so much.
Please keep praying!

It's almost Friday, friends.
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and a SAFE and BLESSED weekend!

  1. I love snowball trees filled with blooms. My dear, little mother has a huge tree in her yard. It's full of gorgeous 'snowballs' this year. I'd love to have one in my yard but I haven't ever had one. Perhaps this is the year to get a start from my mother's tree to plant in my yard. Thank you for sharing your beautiful flowers with us - it's almost as good as seeing them in person!

    1. At least you can go get some blossoms from your mama and enjoy them on your table!

  2. Hi Elizabeth,
    Oh my goodness, those blossoms are so pretty. I have seen those snow ball trees on other blogs and they are just amazing. Would love to have one in my
    yard cause they look so similiar to hyrangeas, and I love anything white.....
    Beautiful, and love how you have them displayed.
    Blessings, Nellie

    1. Nellie, I agree about their strong similarities to hydrangeas. Perhaps they are related.

  3. Those blossoms are gorgeous! And thank you for telling us the name! I have always admired them and wanted one but didn't know what to call it. :) Beautiful photographs, as always. Still praying for your friend. I loved your post from Wednesday. It really hit home to me...(dwelling on the "what if's" of life that distract us from the joy in our now moments. Thanks for encouraging me to not go there and live for every moment God gives me.
    Have a good weekend,

    1. Thank you, Cindy. When one of my posts blesses or speaks to someone it is so encouraging to me.
