How Are Flowers Named?



Have you ever wondered how flowers get their names?

One that's extremely appropriately named is Queen Anne's lace.

It is so delicate yet elegant, too, and is very fit for a queen!


It's lovely alone or tucked into a bouquet.

ARE YOU FAMILIAR WITH QUEEN ANNE'S LACE?

Fun at 4-H County Youth Fair

Hello Sweet Blog Peeps:
 This week promises to be a super busy one so I'm not going to have too much time on the computer.
 Consequently, to save a little time for visiting other blogs, I'm going to post for two days at the same time.  
 Hope you don't mind. You know how much you mean to me.
 So here's Tuesday and Wednesday's post.
Until next time, have fun!

 And now for today's post:

Moooo, quack, cackle, mahh, and neighh sounds filled the air.

The 4-H Youth Fair came to a Western Massachusetts town this month and it was fun for all.


Competitors, of course, felt nervous as  they petted bunnies and other  animals of all colors and sizes.

Looks of anticipation mixed with a little apprehension showed on little faces.

So much work had  gone into the event and emotions ran high.


Winners, of course, proudly displayed their ribbons.  For others, there is always next  year!


In any event, all the youth did a wonderful job putting on and participating in the fair.


The weather could not possibly have been more beautiful. It was clear, cool, crisp and soaked in sunshine.

The 4-H kids, planners as well as participants, did a stellar job from start to finish.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF A FAIR?

Blogger Sandie from "Chatty Crone"

                                                       SANDIE, a true Georgia "peach"

Today as part of the Blogland Tour, we introduce Sandie, a very darling fellow blogger, who lives in Georgia.

Her blog, "Chatty Crone," has made us laugh and entertained us for several years.

Sandie is a true people person.

She laughs when I refer to her as a "little Georgia peach."  But if Georgia peaches really are as  sweet  as they say, Sandie qualifies.

She has endured many life challenges and never let any of them destroy her spirit of optimism.

She is courageous, fun, genuine and real.

She's a wife, mother, grandmother, friend and totally delightful fellow blogger.

Pay her blog a visit and you will enrich your own life.
