Celebrating The Small Things from A to Z






SIGN UP HERE


Apples are the best fruit. Highly portable, delicious and keep the doctor away. So I'm celebrating my apple trees. By April this one will be full of blossoms.  Then the deer will hang out and wait for the fruit. They'll clear the bottom limbs, but I'll get the apples higher up. . .if I hurry before the birds find how juicy those red things are.




Butterflies always deserve to be celebrated.

    1. Must do some re-checking, but I think I've got 'em under control.

  2. Every time I think of the little things, a feeling swarms me from within, this overwhelming feeling of how blessed I am even when I think things aren't as I may think they should be. Then I want to small just because. :-)

    Enjoy the fruit to come (in more ways than the apple tree) and good on you for getting started on the challenge :-)

  7. When I lived in Indiana, we had a cherry tree in our backyard and I remember maiking a few lovely crumbles and pies! Having fruit trees is really a blessing. I haven't written any of my A-Z posts yet because I'm trying to finish my WIP and I have 2 ARCs to read/review. ARGH! I'll never get everything done by April. :P

  9. It's hard to believe that it's almost time for A to Z. I'm thinking one of these years I'll jump in and join. :)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog for Alex's interview. Have a great weekend!

  10. I had this tiny moment of panic...oh no! I missed March. Laugh, but it could happen ;)

    I thought of not doing it this year, but I am a junkie for peer pressure, so I am in.

    1. He needs company in the Anti Hop Camp, but he's too shy to ask for it. Poor guy.

    2. Aha, Arlee Bird, welcome to Alphabet Hell!!

      Hey celebrity, Lee, I would ask you to join me in the Anti Hop Camp. Sadly, as noted, I'm too shy to ask. Poor me!

      Delete
    3. Funny, I wanted to ask you to join us in the A to Z but I've been too shy to ask you.

      Or maybe I did ask and I'm so forgetful that I forgot I asked. I must have too many letters in my brain.

      No, poor me. I'm poorer me than you are.

    1. We have a contract. They get the bottom limbs. I get to climb a ladder for the top ones. :-)

  17. My in-laws used to have apple trees, but they got too big & cut them down. Now we venture to an apple orchard and pick apples. I'm also ahead of the game with the A to Z posts. Last year I fried without a theme and posting everyday....Good to hear you're on top of things. Have a good weekend.

  19. I like the idea of celebrating the small things! Apples are delicious and butterflies are always lovely to see. Especially where I am! We don't get very many very often in the summer.

  23. Ooooo, apples don't grow here. At least we have butterflies. And I'm not revealing my A to Z theme until April 1st! :)

  24. Beautiful butterfly. I believe only a few types of apples grow in Florida.

    I look forward to A to Z.
