Sun Seeker

Today LS decided to do something about our balcony garden. It has been in a terrible state of neglect lately ever since LS took a break from err...well...almost everything.

This is the only plant that smiles in the face of adversary. LS had the good sense *for once* to hang it up in a sunny corner. She usually ended up killing plants.

This is the only non-plant species, which often occupies the prime spot at the balcony garden.

Hey LS, let me help you move this plant a bit.
It has too much sun exposure.

Psst...between you and me...

It's encroaching on my space. Plus, it's stealing the limelight.

Don't you think there should be only one focal point here?

Love ya

Hi Happy,
NO plant/ thing can ever steal the limelight from your happy face! The plant is indeed pretty, but it pales in comparison next to you.
We also want to say THANKS for stopping by our bloggy and leaving those words of support and encouragement for our mom during our darkest hours... we still miss Baby Chloe a lot, but the love and concern from our blogging friends have been keeping us afloat, at least for now.

Hi! I'm Grace said...

Yellow flowers always made me smile. It brings sunshine to my day.
Don't worry about stealing the spotlight, you can always move anywhere, but the flower on the pot can not. :)

Moco said...

That non plant species is the best.

Chow Chow said...

Don't worry Happy, the yellow flowers are pretty but you, my friend is much better looking!

Mack said...

As pretty as the flowers are, you are even prettier!

Blessings LS & Happy...
Happy, you never have to worry about loosing the spot in the limelight. You shine so brightly even among the beautiful floral plants. Be happy for LS & her success with living plants, they are part of nature too!

Thanks for your sweet visit! I so delight when you just pop in! And I notice that every time, your "clover leafs" abound
over here.

I tried to find an email to answer you about Danielo Montero's song "Fortaleza".
Guess I should do a post on it...sorry, that it may look like that here. Between LS & Happy I was sure one of you would understand Spanish, but I guess it's just "WoW -Wow" ...

"Fortaleza" means strength. By your own words of saying it's soothing...may the Lord be your strength. It'd go well with Psalm 139.

Even though, you don't know spanglish, here are the lyrics...
"Desde el vientre te conocí
Te he visto llorar y reír
Te puse nombre y te amo tanto a ti
Tu has sido mi inspiración
La razón de la creación
Te he escogido, eres tan mío, yo soy

Tu fortaleza, la paz de tu alma, por siempre yo
seré tu Dios

en la tormenta, yo soy tu calma, quien sana todo
tu dolor
En mis pensamientos estás
en mi corazón te escondí
eres mi hijo, y yo tu padre soy

Tu fortaleza...

Tu fortaleza, la paz de tu alma
Tu fortaleza, tu Dios
Count the times you see "forteleza". "Dios" means God.
(the beginning translated)
Since I knew you from the womb, I have seen you cry & laugh...I placed a name to you, I love you so much! You have been my inspiration
The reason of creation
I have chosen you, you are mine...I am

Your strength, the peace of your soul, for always I will be Your God

In the storm, I am your calm
who heals all your pain
You are in my thoughts
I hide you in my heart
You are my child & I am your Father,

Your strength

Your strength, the peace of your strength,
Your strength,Your God.

May the strength of the LORD
be yours and bring you peace & more :) good sense, sunny corners & all the joys.

Sorry LS & Happy...I did find your email...couldn't be more obvious...I just needed to scroll down more and instead of looking at Happy in the sun & limelight, just needed to gaze to the left...and there it was...I'll remember it couldn't be more simple.

parlance said...

Happy, the photos are all lovely, but that second one is such a...well...HAPPY shot. It makes me feel good to see you sitting beside that bright pot of flowers.

I find that just looking at flowers makes me feel good when I'm down.

Kess And Her Mama said...

Of course, the focal point is on the canine. The flower complements you very well Happy!

I don't think anything could steal your limelight!

Eric said...

Cute plant but never as cute as you. No wonder you have the prime spot.Did you help the plant by watering?I would stop that if i were you, restore yourself to your rightful place, centre stage.

Our mom is a plant killer also! We were working on plants today too! AND we have a pretty yellow plant just like you!

Hi LS and Happy! Thanks for stopping by my blog and your encouragements. It's so good to be back here. Glad you are back to blogging. Do pace yourself as you are so loved by many :) I am learning to pace myself too and hope to start blogging again soon. Just picking up slowly now ;)

The flowers are beautiful! Thanks for sharing. Take care and have a blessed week!

With hugs and prayers,

You don't need to move a thing, Happy.I think your sweet face just makes the plants look prettier.


Moco said...

Lovely, both you and the plant.

Hi Happy,
you are very cute and in our opinion the prettiest little flower. We hope you will not "help" LS in gardening--our mum doesn't appreciate my gardening technic at all.

Amber-Mae said...
