It is my very good pleasure to be able to send you mine and Janes heart-felt congratulations.. We have seen so many of your pictures, and have always admired the unique way you display them.. You are also one of a certain few bloggers that have inspired me... flowers were something I took little notice of before blogging.. so thank you for opening my eyes to their true beauty.
July is my birth month so these are all the more special for me to see today..
All the very best... and please keep up the great work..

My blogs today show a Gypsy Waggon and a Weather Vane

what beautiful images! I don't have so many beautiful flowers in my garden, but lots of green and ecological struff and a lot of space. But i do admire folks like you with green fingers, beautiful flowers and those who grow their own veggies!

Catherine, I am closing down one of my blogs, because I have too many blogs. You have registered there as a follower or have commented there, so this is why I am letting you know that here's another one of my blogs, which features the same sort of pictures (nature of Scandinavia plus my books and art-work).

This is the link, in case you are interested:

I hope you will enjoy it and might consider becomming a follower there instead.

greetings from Scandinavia, Sarah Sofia

Congratulations and may your blog go on and on.

I particularly like the photo of the bee in the rose in your last collage. Such a pretty flower, such a handsome bumble bee.

Many happy returns! I'm sure we'll still get a lot of wonderful and stunning pictures from you in the future. It's always a pleasure to visit your blog (though I was very seldom in blogland the past two months).
Best wishes and have a good time!
