  5. Oh, Carolyn. You are such a wonderful friend. I enjoy seeing your beautiful posts and reading your comments on mine. These wildflowers are absolutely stunning, and it's a wonderful poem to have printed on window shades.

    Hi Pat,

    At the moment I have a Scotch terrier on the go, some dough decorations that I am going to varnish today and drapes for my Son's bedroom to make.
    I have some pale pink mohair that I want to make a new bear, so just need more time. Hopefully will get something made soon.

    Hi Renee and thanks for visiting.
    I hope all is well with you.

  24. What a beautiful post. It's amazing how many friendships are made on-line and most of us, have never met. I enjoy your visiting your blog. You always have something sweet to see.

    As I already said in my other comment on Lily of the Valley, it is my favorite flower, but I do like poppies too. I had a huge garden full of poppies when I lived in Michigan.

    I also wanted to ask you what the pink flower is? Is it another type of poppy?

    The poem is lovely! Thank you for posting it.

    Have a wonderful day!!
