To my child,
May you never be afraid to fly,
May you always keep the innocence that you hold at this young age.
When you are out on a branch and you feel it shake, have faith that it will steady itself again.
Enjoy your individual beauty and uniqueness; never wish it would change.
When you fly, go in a direction that will take you to places of happiness; don't be distracted by those which will not.
You start out so small and fragile, unable to take flight, with time may you be able to fly on your own.
I look at you knowing how blessed I am, to the have the baby, the butterfly, I have.
May you spread your wings and fly without doubt.
I hope that you will give yourself the chance to let your mind wonder, and show you the way.
When you spread your wings and fly, know that I will always be there flying next to you, guiding you in the right direction, giving you the strength to wait out the storm, being the one to steady the branch.
Above all else know that I love you, my baby and my butterfly, and that you always have my open wings to fly back to.

Thought we'd share a picture of our little hen, L'Oreal.She had to visit the vet today.
Today I had to attack my rhubarb area since the rhubarb has SKYROCKETED. I kept adjusting the fencing but today I finally had to remove it altogether and add a new section! Don't know if I mentioned it before but the rhubarb had a weird ball like seed pod-thingie growing up the middle. Of course, we're not experts, but we're guessing this is a seed ball.
Our garden 'bible' says to cut off blossom stalks but it is producing major leaves, so I think I'll wait until it stops. Probably wrong, but then again, we are learning! A note of trivia...didcha know that rhubarb leaves are poisonous? Not the stalks, just the leaves! In a later blog, I promise to share the 'killer' rhubarb sauce recipe I have. It is a passed around family heirloom now!
