A Lovely Letter

When I’m looking for “L” words, this song ALWAYS come to mind. It’s funny how you can have an association with a certain song and no matter how many years go by, I start singing, “La La La La lemons…”

Although Ernie and Bert gave me some great ideas for L words for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, I’ll stick with the ones I’ve shared below!

This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter K allows us to use any word with K in it- and how could I pass up the chance to use these photos on Halloween?

Happy Trick or Treating!


My Three Little Birds

This week’s song, Three Little Birds by Bob Marley and the Wailers (1977), never fails to bring me a renewed sense of determination and a feeling that I can overcome anything as long as I keep my priorities straight. As long as I can remember, what makes me happiest is my family. The combination of this reassuring song and my love for my “three little birds” gives me motivation to keep moving.

“Three little birds
Pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs
Of melodies pure and true
Saying’, (this is my message to you)
Singing’ don’t worry ’bout a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright
Singing’ don’t worry (don’t worry) ’bout a thing
‘Cause every little thing gonna be alright”
Three Little Birds, Bob Marley and the Wailers

My family is full of people with green thumbs. My grandfather had a small greenhouse off the back of his house and I remember peaking in there and staring in amazement and everything he could grow. He had tons of books about all sorts of plants. and this was such a small part of who he was. My mother and siblings have gardens and their homes are full of lush green plants.

I love beautiful flowers but the green thumb gene passed me by. I am the killer of all plants. To make up for my lack of talent in growing plants, I hope to improve my flower photographing skills. Maybe I can keep them alive in that way.
