Mother’s Day

Most of all the other beautiful things in life

come by twos and threes,

by dozens and hundreds.

Plenty of roses, stars,

sunsets, rainbows,

brothers and sisters,

and aunts and cousins,

but only one Mother in the whole world.

Happy Mothers Day! I Love You!!!!!!XOXOXO………………..

WHO IS THAT????

Who is that outside my window?

IMG_7977IMG_7974He is very beautiful. I love seeing him and hearing him. But I think he is interested in what’s in my feeders. Or I should say what’s coming to my feeders. He sure spotted me. I wonder how much he weighs.I call him a he but may be a she. But very cool. Wanted to share the pic. Enjoy. Happy Friday Everyone.

HAPPY EARTH DAY 2018

Here is a Great DIY Project for your Earth Day 2018. I bought a large bird cage at a thrift store for under $15.00. It has a plastic bottom and metal cage top. I went to a home improvement store and bought a Jasmine plant. It was in a plastic pot and already had a stake in the pot that the jasmine was tied to. When I got home I placed the bird cage right outside of my screened in back porch. Some where I could see it and smell it. I opened the large opening at the top of the cage and placed the whole plant, pot,stake and all, right inside. Then closed the cage back up. Gave it a good water. Over the years it has done exactly what I wanted it to do. As it grows and vines out, I have been weaving the vines in and out of the cage. Look at it now. It is Full, Beautiful and in full bloom. I love it! IMG_0629The cage is rusting to a rustic looking perfection. And looks great. Very Shabby Chic. Enjoy the photo. Have a Nice Earth Day 2018!

Blowin’ though the Jasmine in my Mind.

LIGHTNING BUGS

Spring has Sprung and the little blinkers are everywhere. I must have seen millions last night. Enjoy them while you can. They are only back for a limited time. They seem to last about 2 weeks here in my hood. So this weekend, Before it gets dark, Take a minute to Google these little guys and gather the information. Wait until dark. Turn off the outside lights and grab your lawn chairs. Sit out there and take in the seasonal blinking world around you that God created. It’s Amazing!

GLOW WORM

Shine little glow worm, glimmer, glimmer. Shine little glow worm, glimmer, glimmer. Lead us lest too far we wander. Love’s sweet voice is calling yonder. Shine little glow worm, glimmer, glimmer. Hey, there don’t get dimmer, dimmer. Light the path below, above. And lead us on to love.

Glow little glow worm, fly of fire. Glow like an incandescent wire. Glow for the female of the species. Turn on the AC and the DC. This night could use a little brightnin’. Light up you little ol’ bug of lightnin’. When you gotta glow, you gotta glow. Glow little glow worm glow.

Glow little glow worm, glow and glimmer. Swim though the sea of night, little swimmer. Thou aeronautical boll weevil. Illuminate yon woods primeval. See how the shadows deep and darken. You and your chick should get to sparkin’. I got a gal that I love so. Glow little glow worm, glow.

Glow little glow worm, turn the key on. You are equipped with taillight neon. You got a cute vest-pocket Mazda. Which you can make go slow and faster. I don’t know who you took a shine to. Or who you’re out to make a sign to. I got a gal that I love so. Glow little glow worm, glow.

SPRING

                        GREEN SCENE

The color green belongs to spring, Which splashes it about. On nearly every growing thing, That pops a bud or sprout. Against the white of winter time, Spring’s green is fresh and new. With lettuce, Laurel leaf, and lime, And peas and honeydew. Appearing in new gowns of green, The reawakened trees. Are graceful as they bow and lean, A-dancing in spring’s breeze. Each season with it’s own bouquet brings color new and clean, But surely, spring, this lovely way, Has blessed the world with green.
