Happy Earth Day.


Silently one by one, in the infinate meadows of heaven
Blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of the angels.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 1807 - 1882
American poet.

Happy Earth Day to you! It is wonderful to see the bees out. Your forget-me-nots are so delicate and pretty. Looks like you have finally warmed up. We are actually a little too warm(can't believe I said that!), the daffs and the tulips are fading fast. Have you noticed the sow down in the blogging world? I suspect everyone is keeping busy outside!

We have got just the right temp at the moment. Not too hot and not too cold. Yes the blogging world has gone quiet, I thought it was me. Hello, is there anybody out there???
I still have daffs and tulips in bloom.

Dear Cheryl,
Happy Earth Day!
Your forget-me-nots and bees bring me hope and happiness.
Namaste,
Sherry

Happy Earth day to you, too, Cheryl. Is this one of your mason bees?
I'm taking a break between chores right now to catch up on some blog reading, but heading outside soon...It's 74 degrees, which may be about 30 C.? (I'm going to have to look up the conversion table.) Anyway, a gorgeous day outside.

Beautiful photo... and I love the quote about Forget-me-nots.
How wonderful to have bees around. Now I must get out in the sun, for it is shining today!

Hi Rose..... Yes it is a little mason bee. I was glad to get the photo on the forget me not, people will be able to see how small they are.

74 is around 21C.

We have had sun today and about 17C which is 64f.
