My birthday.....


It's my birthday tommorrow, i have some lovely treats in store. I'll tell you all about it next week :) Have a good weekend all.


For now i will leave you with this:

L for LissyLou and my birth flower.
Gentle fairies, hush your singing:
Can you hear my white bells ringing,
Ringing as from far away?
Who can tell me what they say?
Little snowy bells out-springing
From the stem and softly ringing-
Tell they of a country where
Everything is good and fair?
Lovely, lovely things for L!
Lilac, lavender as well;
And, more sweet than rhyming tells,
Lily-of-the-valley's bells.
(Lily of the valley is sometimes called Ladders of heaven)
Taken from A flower fairy alphabet - Cicely M. Barker

Happy Belated Birthday. Anything in the post yet? Oh, and I found the card that was suppose to be in the package on the floor! So that anonymous gift that comes? It's from me;)
