Good morning all!
This day has me thinking about my dear father and remembering how we always celebrated his special day. So I'm sending birthday wishes and hugs up to heaven.
This photo was taken a few years before my father was born, but it pretty much describes the way things were in his world way back when. (My grandmother was quite the gardener)
His childhood was spent mostly outdoors, taking in clean fresh air, playing and raising animals of all kinds, and of course lots and lots of flowers, and vegetables too. His older sister was born to ride, and showed him many things!
Then, once my daddy turned 12 his father moved away to Arizona and during the summer months and his college years my Daddy really learned what life of a cowboy was all about.

"You have to decide if you're going to wilt like a daisy
or if you're just going to go forward
and live the life that you've been granted."
Go forward always.
"Always have something beautiful in sight,
even if it's just a daisy in a jelly glass."
H. Jackson Brown Jr.
I don't really know why
but daisies always make me smile.
Enjoy your day, and pick a daisy
but don't keep it
give it away today!
