Innocent child and snow-white flower!

Innocent child and snow-white flower!

Well are ye paired in your opening hour.
Thus should the pure and the lovely meet,
Stainless with stainless, and sweet with sweet.

White as those leaves,
just blown apart,
Are the folds of thy own young heart;
Guilty passion and cankering care
Never have left their traces there.

Artless one!
though thou gazest now
O'er the white blossom with earnest brow,
Soon will it tire thy childish eye;
Fair as it is, thou wilt throw it by.

Throw it aside in thy weary hour,
Throw to the ground the fair white flower;
Yet, as thy tender years depart,
Keep that white and innocent heart.

not one , not two , no,.......... three awards

This must be my lucky day :) I received not one , not two , no,.......... three awards today.

Funnely enough it's the same award , I already got from Bellavien.

I am supposed to give the award to 15 bloggers , so that would be 45 in total,
but that will be a bit much ,
so instead of that, I give my 'Blog love' to all the lovely people that read my Blog,
your comments mean a lot to me , I love getting feedback , so thanks to you all.

Here are the 3 Blog friends that gave me the Award :
If you click on the names you can visit their lovely Blogs !

Painted lady - Vanessa cardui

We put lots of herbs in our garden to attract butterflies
and it seems to have worked !
beautiful butterflies on the chives ,
it is a real joy to see them enjoying the flowers,
and they did not mind us taking very close-up pictures of them at all.

job finished (decorating weekend-update)

Today I finished the little decorating job I started last weekend.
I have been looking for a chest of drawers like this for ages
and when I saw this one , I just had to have it.
But it needed some paint because I didn't like the gray color it had.
So I painted the commode and I am very happy with the result.
