Hi, everyone,

A late post today, but I hope you all enjoy it just the same. It is now officially spring, and Florida is ablaze with an array of the most beautiful flowers blooming in the bright sunshine and swaying to the balmy breezes.

I would also like to wish all the spring babies a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Many of my close blogger friends are having birthdays now and in May ... you know who you are. If you were born in the spring let me know... I love to meet and congratulate fellow spring babies. My birthday is coming quite soon. This Sunday in fact. YAY... No post! LOL. That is the best birthday present I can think of .... sorry Alex. LOL.

So I am dedicating my post today to all spring babies, young and old.

This F/F piece does have a 'T" theme. Let's see if you can guess what it is. It should be quite simple for the spring babies....

Thanks again all for being so patient with me during my crazy schedule. I appreciate it and I would also like to WELCOME ALL my new friends who joined me this week. I will get to you eventually.

I would also like to send out a special thank you to Alex Cavanaugh for his kind words about me in his post today.

See you all tomorrow.

On the breath of spring, with the ides of march long gone, a baby bull comes forth. Bright-eyed and full of life, he takes stands on shaky legs. 
As he stumbles, each new step brings strength and confidence. 
Day after day, life challenges him, toughing his skin. But he is gentle, caring, and kind, and sees beauty with every turn. 
He wears his heart on his shoulder for everyone to see, leaving him vulnerable. With each new onslaught, he grows more powerful and anger often blinds him.
But through it all, he keeps his head high, determined to meet every obstacle in his path  with integrity and passion, until his time in the sun comes to an end.

Don't worry, Michael. I'm glad there's no post on Sunday either! And glad you didn't miss all the nice comments about you.

Happy spring indeed! It definitely felt like spring here today, wonderful 80 degree weather. I could get used to this!

Ella said...

Happy spring brother dear. Not quite here yet but it has to be coming soon now, it just has to be! Makes sense that we share the same Astrological planet (Venus). I will be thinking about you on Sunday :)

Happy birthday - early as I'm so fuddled this month I forget many important details.

I'll go read all the nice things Alex said about you, late though I am :) I'm sure they are all well deserved.

Taurus!!! Aw, that was the sweetest. I could just see the gangly baby in the field. Ah, the anger...I know it well...but you can't really have the passion without it, can you?
