Happy 4th of July! - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Happy 4th of July weekend and welcome to Show and Tell Friday! 
It's a time to celebrate our country's independence and a time to decorate with a little red, white and blue!

I found these gorgeous hydrangeas at the grocery store.  There is nothing like fresh flowers to freshen up your home!  I miss having my little rose garden this year and having fresh roses in my home all summer. I guess I'll just have to start buying them more often!

We're having a Potluck BBQ at our place on the 4th of July. I'll be making ribs, chicken, potato salad, coleslaw and Jello shots for fun! 

 I hope all my U.S. friends have a wonderful and safe 4th of July and enjoy the long weekend!

Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments! 

If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog.

Thanks for hosting, Cindy! Happy 4th!



When I see your hydrangeas it gives me the idea to pick up some of mine in my garden ! I have to say that I often don't dare to gather flowers as if I killed them,but I'm in progress...
It's always a pleasure to look at your beautiful romantic home as if I was coming in a friend's house.

Balance your spiritual energy and get in harmony with your soul by practicing these Radha-Krishna meditations.

Sri Gita Govinda
-A book written in the 12th century, this is a description of the intimate loving affairs of Radha and Krishna

Govinda Lilamrta
-An 400 year old book which poetically describes the eternal daily pastimes of Radha and Krishna

Ananda Vrindavan Campu
-This is probably the most poetic and intimate portrayal of Sri Krsna’s life in Vrndavana that has ever been written.

Prayers of Service to Radha and Krishna (Sankalpa Kalpadruma)

Prema Samputa The Treasure Chest of Love

And the following four are taken from Visvanath Cakravarti's Camatkara Candrika, a 300 year old scripture that talks about the love meeting of Radha and Krishna:

The Meeting in the Box

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Doctor

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as a Female Singer

The Meeting of Sri Krishna Disguised as Abhimanyu

And lastly, we have a very amazing scripture which describes the 24 hour daily loving affairs of Radha and Krishna in Vrindavan, called Bhavanasara Sangraha. This book is now available on Amazon for Kindle, for only $3.49

Here is a 41 page sample of Bhavanasara Sangraha:

The above book can also be read on your PC using Amazon Kindle for PC, download here for free:

ISKCON, or "The Hare Krishna Movement" as it's popularily known, is a radical and extremist distortion of the original Radha and Krishna dharma from ancient India.
