Saturday - Flowers for Leontien



Leontien These Flowers Are For YOU!

Okay - I don't have a whole lot of flowers in my yard. So when they said flowers - I wanted to get some pretty REAL ones. I went to Harry's Whole Foods and just snapped away. Just for you Leontien ....
Why? Because I love you ....



MY THOUGHT FOR THE DAY FOR YOU LEONTIEN IS: 



Many of you know Leontien at Four Leaf Clover Tales and if you don't, go over there and check out this wonderful and courageous woman. This post is one of many that are surprises for her called Flowers for Leontien. Nancy at A Rural Journal has put together a meme JUST FOE HER.

I'd love anyone of you to send her some flowers too.

 This will provide Leontien with a list of the blogs that are participating,  A "Flowers for Leontien" button will be available on Saturday on Nancy's sidebar for anyone to utilize in drawing attention to this event. We are hoping the "Flowers for Leontien" posts will continue to be published, long after the initial event takes place on Saturday. The link will remain open for a while.
