"I know the song that the Blue bird is singing,
Out in the apple tree where he is swinging.
Brave little fellow! the skies may be dreary-
Nothing cares he while his heart is so cherry.

Hark! how the music leaps from his throat!
Hark! was there ever so merry a note?
Listen a while, and you'll hear what he's saying,
Up in the apple tree swinging and swaying.

'Dear little blossoms down under the snow,
You must be weary of winter I know.
Listen! I'll sing you a message of cheer!
Summer is coming! and spring time is here!

Little white snowdrop! I pray you arise;
Bright yellow crocus! please open your eyes;
Sweet little violets, hid from the cold,
Daffodils! Daffodils! say, do you hear?-
Summer is coming, and spring time is here!'"
-Emily Huntington Miller-

I was very excited to learn I had received this lovely award from my friend Michael, at Thank you so much Michael for thinking of me!
Michael has a beautiful and inspiring blog where he posts his thoughts about the bible, God, and Catholicism. I have learned so much here. I hope you will take the time to visit him. It's very refreshing to visit such a positive and spiritually inspired place. Thank you Michael!.........

This next award comes from my friend Zetor, at This award is about "sharing the love which has always been a good thing. The blog that receives this has to show one characteristic, caring." Thank you so much Zetor! This means so much to me!
If you haven't stopped by to visit Zetor please do. Her blog is all about family, her life on a farm, books she enjoys, and her wonderful book reviews. She has a lovely blog and I think you will think so too. Thank you Zetor!......
I am passing on these beautiful awards to anyone who stops by here. You are all very caring and deserving. I hope you will except these awards as gratitude from me for being the wonderful group of blogger's all of you are ♥.....
Happy Blue Monday everyone!......
With warmest regards, Carol

Blue birds are so pretty, but rarely seen around here. We do get blue jays which are attractive in appearance, but not personality. Even the pesky squirrels are afraid of them!

Congrats on your two awards!

Is it raining there, too? It's sunny here, but I'm hearing about all this rain in the Mid-west. I know what that's coming this way.

Beautiful images today, as always, Carol. Thank you for your sweet comments regarding my mom. I appreciate them so much.

I was especially tickled with your Tinkerbell award since our litle puppy dog's name is Tinkabelle (I posted on how she got this strange name).
