Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Z, Y, X...C, B, A and Further Signs of Spring

The count-down is underway! The third A to Z Challenge begins Sunday and YOU still have time to join. Click HERE to learn everything about it. Arlee Bird, is the originator of the challenge, and this year he has a host of team members to help him out. Way to go Arlee!

At last count over 1200 bloggers had signed up! YEAH!

This is my third year. The first year I jumped in late,  not really knowing what I was doing. Even so I got her done. Last year I had more of a theme. For every word chosen I somehow managed to relate it back to writing.

This year my theme is all about books. For every letter I've picked a character or mythological figure, an author or a book, that influenced my life, both as a writer and as a person.

Hope to you'll join me!

And remember, HAVE FUN!

And now, a little eye candy as I share further signs of Spring in our back yard.

  1. Sounds like a good theme. I'm going for nostalgia. Love your spring garden. I might pop out and photograph ours before the sun goes in. See you next week!

  2. Oh, your garden is fantastic. Nothing of mine is up yet. Not that I have much, but I'd like to see them soon.

    I'm also doing the challenge but I didn't sign up. Too much pressure with everything that's going on. And it's on my anne gallagher blog, so I hope you'll look for it. I start Sunday too.

  3. Nice photos!
    Bish, we are veterans. I almost didn't sign up the first year and I'm glad I did.

  4. Your blog is decked out with a lovely array of photos today. I'm linking to this post on the A to Z Blog Summary this Saturday.

  11. Oh, how beautiful. And these are all in your garden?

  12. I love the straw flower Bish! Beautiful.

    I'm also doing the challenge. You sound really organised. I attempted to be, but didn't quite get there, so I'm going to have to wing my way through it. OOps. Have a great month!
