WELCOME THE MONTH OF JULY

Shifting away from June's bud to leave dandelions scattered in the yard this dawn of July marks the end of a lie a lie from the past season for a strong reason.  In July robin will make herself shy and cover her reddish breast with her celestial bird crest then flap her wings to fly close against the sky. I want to kiss July and make July lasting forever in beauty but not ephemeral.   I will preserve July on my canvas and with magic brush so that she will be enthralled and blush.  I will paint July with charming colour so that she will be captured in delight and her soul enraptured because my heart is in July.

"We go in withering July to ply the hard incessant hoe;  panting beneath the brazen sky we sweat and grumble, but we go."

WELCOME THE FIRST DAY OF SUMMER

Summertime and the livin' is easy fish are jumping and the cotton is high.   Oh your daddy's rich and your mamma's good lookin' so hush little baby don't you cry.   One of these morning's you're going to rise up singing then you'll spread your wings and you'll take to the sky.  But until that morning there's a'nothing can harm you with your daddy and mamma standing by.    ~George Gershwin~


Hope everyone has a safe and blessed summer.

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY

My mother has been gone for a good many years.  She instilled in me many good traits and virtues that I am so thankful for and I have tried to pass on to my 3 daughters and 1 son.  I wish my 3 daughters, Debra, Deann, and Kara  and my daughter-in-law a very happy Mother's Day.  This wish also goes out to all my relatives and blogging friends.  You all have helped me get through a couple of bad times which I am very grateful for.  Have a wonderful and blessed day.

WISTERIA BUSH AND DOGWOOD TREE

My wisteria bush has more blooms then ever this year.  It just came up right in the middle of my cactus plant.  My husband used to baby it and now I do.   The dogwood tree is one of my big ones  the others are small but are also in bloom.

SPRING TIME IN ALABAMA

I  just had to show off some of the lovely what we call red bud trees that are blooming in my back yard.  I do not know why they call them red bud trees because the flower is more of a dark pink color.  We also have our dogwood trees blooming and I have some azaleas starting to bloom and when they are in full bloom I will post some pictures of them.  Also the wild iris are blooming.

WELCOME THE MONTH OF APRIL

                                                            Another Sure Sign

                                                           By Evaleen Stern

               When pink-cheeked on every hand little girls are seen to stand turning skipping ropes, -
                swish - swash!  While their laughing playmates run jumping over, - oh, what fun!  Swish -
                swash! Swish - Swash!  Two and two now, see them dash! one, two, one, two, round they
                scamper, softly thought, swish - swash!  Such merry  skipping, one, two, some one is
                slipping !  Oh, she's out now and must pay turning rope while others play!  See the bobbing
                golden curls, little skirts in rhythmic swirls rising, falling to the beat of the little skipping
                feet!  When these pretty sights appear, it is surely very clear April's here!














               The first of April, some do say, is set apart for All Fool's Day.  But why the people call it so,
                nor I, nor they themselves do know.  But on this day are people sent on purpose for sure
                merriment."    ~Poor Robins Almanac, 1790~
