Happy Belated Birthday To Me!




It's bad enough I forget the birthdays of friends and sometimes family so I guess it's only fitting that  I missed my very own blog birthday.  FIVE years ago yesterday, I posted my first photo on this blog.  Now 1,856 posts later, I'm still hanging in there.  Sometimes I think it's time to call it quits, then I get a great email or blog comment from a dear reader and it seems well worth the effort.  I thank all of you that read, comment, follow and share my blog. You have expanded my world and shared your friendship and I'm grateful for it.

Since my first blog post was Pepper Place Market sunflowers, I thought I'd post these lovelies today!

Ah! Sunflower

Ah Sunflower! weary of time,
Who countest the steps of the Sun
Seeking after that sweet golden clime
Where the traveller's journey is done.

Where the Youth pined away with desire,
And the pale Virgin shrouded in snow:
Arise from their graves and aspire,
Where my Sunflower wishes to go.

i, too, am seriously considering ceasing this daily "throwing open the doors". in my little town there is not much more to document, i fear. but i, too, would miss the kindness of strangers who become friends very quickly in this arena. happy blog birthday. you have certainly brought great joy to so many in these five years.
