I found this flower while going for my walk today. A special blessing from God this morning.

And the other one the next morning! And many more little flowers peeking out to me from the growth among the blackberry bushes in the back yard. I am sure I cut some of them down the other day when I mowed the paths again.

This morning, I was singing 'We'll be Jolly Friends forever more!" But could not come up with the whole song. It started because I caught some of that rain water in a 5-gallon bucket yesterday to water plants with later. So, I typed in 'slide down my cellar door' online and came up with the words to the song and an interesting link to share.

"Oh Playmate, come out and play with me And bring your dollies three. Climb up my apple tree, Look down my rain barrel, Slide down my cellar door And we'll be jolly friends forever more."


I used to sing the song when I was a child and skip around the yard while doing so. I did not know the verses, just that part.

Our Rain Forest



I came across this saying in my devotions today. Then I went to water plants. We had a heavy dew last night and as I was close to the woods, I heard this noise like water falling, but it was not raining. Then, I realized it must be the dew in the trees trickling down among the leaves and vines. Our very own rain forest! Neat sound.

Then I did a search on the author of the saying and the saying and there are many nature photos with this saying. I guess I am the last person to hear of it and him!
