Love

a little girl squeals
toddling through daises—
her mother smiles

Thanks, Carrie. It's funny that the children grow up, but sweet memories linger...forever.

Thanks, Barbara. It's good to be back. I'm going to try to be more active this year. Darn Spring! lol gets me every time! I've already ordered 500 strawberry plants, a couple of hundred bulbs, and 25 asparagus plants most arriving days before a planned trip down south. I must have been out of my mind! lol Trying to grow strawberry hill! Enough of that. I hope to stay busy on the soup during breaks. Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks, Andrea for including me in the winners circle. Oh, how I love remembering those days watching my own children run through fields of wildflowers...and sometimes, stopping to pick one. Big Smiles, Dane

It's nice to be back.... Spring is almost here and I am pretty active in a gardening group. Plus I'll be traveling some. I bought a newer, more reliable car. so I can visit my son & his wife in Virginia. They have been stationed in Germany for several years. So, it will be nice to be able to drive to see him. I hope to be here more often during the next few months. It's good to see you, too. Thanks for stopping by. Big Smiles, Dane Ann
