Pollinating Blogs

Partially hidden among the leaves, but still catching some early rays of sunlight, is my first coneflower bloom of the season. This blog is a bit like the flower.

My Little Home and Garden was almost hidden, among so many, but was given some light -a closer look- by Cozy Little House. 

Being one of the featured blogs there this week has "pollinated" this spot. So many of Cozy's friends have come to visit. I am grateful.

Today, I made a lovely, unexpected discovery. The beautiful Lavender Cottage has kindly mentioned this blog and suggested her readers pop by to take a peek. More "pollination". More gratitude.

I am overwhelmed by the kindness of the women who write the aforementioned two blogs. One American, one Canadian. Both so neighbourly.

It's my country's birthday today. I feel like I've received the gifts. Happy Canada Day, wherever in the world you call home. I hope you'll come again.


  1. Happy BIrthday, Canada... The USA loves you!

    Your flower is splendid!It is gently peeking from the leaves and shining. The bee is cute! He did not notice you tripping the shutter! Your flower must have been sooo sweet! Is the beautiful lake one of the Great Lakes?

  8. Excellent photos of the echinacea. Having a good camera really helps, doesn't it?

  9. Pam: I'm glad you like the hydrangea photos. As for Brenda, it was very gracious of her to feature this blog; it is 2 weeks old today!

    Lemon Lane: You are so thoughtful; I don't know about well deserved. Lucky, maybe! Enjoy your weekend and your Fourth of July.

    Redrose: The photo you asked about was taken in Nova Scotia, one of Canada's provinces. If you look at a map, Cape Breton Island is part of Nova Scotia, just northeast of the mainland. You can't miss it, it is a very large island! The photo was taken on the northern tip of Cape Breton. Here is a map link for you. section.

    Judith: I love echinacea. I planted a new brightly coloured one this year and hope it comes along well. As for my camera, it is just a Canon PowerShot A540 and is several years old; it will suit for now. But, who's to say in the future...

  10. You have such a lovely blog here I just had to join.

  11. Willow, thank you for joining. I'm happy that you like the blog. It sure is a new experience for me!
