Soft moss a downy pillow makes, and green leaves spread a tent,
Where faerie fold may rest and sleep until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby, the firefly gives a light,
The twinkling stars are candles bright, Sleep, Faeries all, Goodnight.

Nothing says I love you like CONCRETE!
Happy Valentine's Day everyone! I got my perfect Valentine's gift from a local nursery in Florence, AL. Dear Glen was more than happy to have both Valentine's day and our anniversary (Feb 25) covered in one fell swoop! She resembles the Bird Girl statue found originally in the Bonaventure Cemetery of Savannah Georgia. I have named her Lorie (short for Lorraine which is the name of the little girl who posed for the original statue). She will look better when I clean off my porch behind her and when the Heritage rose beside her is covered in springtime blooms. She makes me happy everytime I drive down my driveway as she is positioned by my back entry. Here is a link to the Bird Girl history you may find interesting. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bird_Girl
