Sunshine makes me happy

Lovely blogess Nicki - bless her - posts every day.  And I enjoy reading those posts every day - they add a little bit of sunshine, even when we are mucking about in some of Oregon's famous rain.  As a side note, Nicki is planning her wedding and is blogging that here.  There are few things I like more than all things wedding.  The dresses, the hair, the rings, the venues, the wedding parties large or small, flowers, beautiful photos etc. etc. etc.  Since I've been there and done that myself, now I get a little vicarious thrill from other's wedding plans.  Weddings seem to be a theme amongst my blog peeps at the moment as lovely blogess Helen is also planning her wedding, and lovely blogess Capclassique is looking forward to another bang up job as maid of honor at the end of this year.  Oh, the fun I will have following along.

Earlier this week, I was pleased to find that Nicki had nominated me for a Sunshine Blog award.  Isn't that a pretty award badge?  It's to be awarded to bloggers whose positivity and creativity inspire others.  Thanks for your support Nicki!

I thought this little commendation might go well with a photo post I had in mind to document all the lovely variations of daffodils that spring up every year in Mae's garden.  It's the garden that surrounds our little house on the prairie, but I still think of it as hers.  There really is an amazing array of daffodils - I could probably have found at least another 5 or 6 other less striking versions of the flower that I didn't bother to photograph.

If you would like to see a closer view of any of these lovelies, there is a slideshow of the photos here.

And now to pass on the sunshine... I find something to make me smile whenever I visit the blogs of these inspiring ladies:

Lisa at Lemon Gloria

Roll on sunshine!  And thanks again, Nicki!
