Flowers are Beginning to Appear!

Hello everyone!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  The video I have chosen for this post is "Duke of Earl" by Gene Chandler.  It is a great classic song, and Gene sings it with such feeling!  I also love the intense expression of the people in the audience here...it shows what a great performance this was!


I thought I would share a few things about myself in this post.

1.  I love to read.  The type of books I enjoy reading are non-fiction, some biographies, self help books, The Bible, nature books and books that are heartwarming, such as the Chicken Soup for the Soul series...and A Cup of Comfort.  How about you all?  What do you like to read?

2.  I love to organize and clean.  I know I may be in the minority, but I just love doing chores around the apartment and organizing everything from my books to papers, anything.  I also really enjoy helping others to organize their lives...if they let me or ask me to help them.  :)

The photo I am sharing in this post is one that I took on a walk a couple of days ago.  It is not one of my best photos, however, I was so happy to see some flowers...and colourful ones, too, I just had to capture it, so I did.  This is my first attempt at taking a photo of flowers this year.  You just need to click on the image to see a larger view.

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I really appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share by clicking on the 'comments' link at the end of my post.

  5. The flowers were unmissable, weren't they.

    I have fits of organising things....and then I go back to reading.

  6. Great song in the video!

    I love to read, too. I enjoy nonfiction books like memoirs. I also enjoy fiction, particularly mysteries.

    I bet it's nice to see the first flowers! Hope many more open up soon.

  9. The colors of those flowers are so lively! :D i usually read magazines, because i have a short attention span. And I wish I could be organized, like you. My apartment is pretty messy because I'm always procrastinating when it comes to tidying up =)

  10. I love those vibrant colors! And you can't go wrong with "The Duke of Earl". I wish I enjoyed organizing, but my favorite part about cleaning is the moment it's done. I love to read too. I like all kinds of books, but in my opinion, you can never go wrong with a good murder mystery. :-)

    You were right about the snake on my blog! It's nonvenomous.

  12. That's a song that goes back aways! And I must say you are probably in the minority when it comes to cleaning and organizing. :) I don't mind doing those things but I have to be in the mood!

    The flowers are gorgeous. So glad to hear that things are warming up and spring is coming full-flower, so to speak! And thank you for your lovely comments today!

  13. I, too, LOVE reading!!!! Biographies - - especially Christian - - are my favorites. I like to organize but can never seem to get done with it all. Now maybe since I am retired, I can make some progress?!!! And once again, I really like the video you picked for us.

  14. I've actually been into historical books lately along with some thrillers thrown in here and there to spice things up. I love to see the colors of spring finally arrive. My walks have taken me past so many tulips and daffodils...it's a welcome sign of the season's progress!
