If You Saw The Ground Looking Like This What Would You Think?!

     I don't know what you would think, but I know what I thought.....YIPPEE!!!! Spring is finally here!! :-)
     And the reason I had that reaction is because there was more than just this smattering of flower petals on the ground. The trees, even though the weather was threatening rain on occasion, were ignoring anything bad. Why?!  Because...
      ..."The Magnolia trees are in bloom again!"...(Said with a Southern accent in the style of Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With The Wind"...*Teehee*)
     They are actually so beautiful that I am quite short of words!....Now, if you've been around here a while, you know just how significant me being without words is!!! LOL
      And, believe it or not, the rest of my backyard, with all it's greenery, is looking pretty good too! It has hubby on the hunt for more seeds to plant! :-) Some is growing already though.....the fruitage of last years plantings....I'll show you that tomorrow though. Right now I have to tell you the winner of today's Giveaway!
    After the usual shaking up of the names in the box, the name that was drawn was....
      ....Congratulations Art and Sew Forth!!! Please click HERE and scroll down to see the different choices you can choose from for your winning gift. Then email me to let me know! I'll get it in the mail for you right away!
    But wait!! This is a special month. My blog turned one year old yesterday, April 29th!! :-) So, in honor of that, I chose a 2nd winner this month!.....
      ...Congratulations Bee Happy!!! :-) You can follow the same instructions as above. I'll be looking forward to hearing from both of you!! 
     I'm not through!!! :-) I also want to offer a discount to all of you blog readers who have been so generous with your time and attention this year. I know I've talked your ears off, and tried your patience, and probably made you question why you learned how to work a computer...or to read in the first place, for that matter! LOL
     But even so, you've been loyal, and loving, and down-right encouraging! So, THANK YOU!!!...For the next 3 days, until midnight Wednesday, May 4, 2011, the necklaces leftover, after the two winners have made their choices, will all be only $7.00. Their prices usually range from $15.00 to $25.00! (Since they're not listed in my shop yet, you let me know which one you want and I'll quickly list it for you, so you can pay for it.)
    And, as a bonus, all of the necklaces in my Wuglyees shop, for the same time period, will be $7.00 off of the listed price!!! Just put "Wug Giveaway" in the message to seller box when you checkout, and I'll refund you through Paypal.
    I hope this let's you know how much I appreciate all of you! Speaking of which, the next Giveaway is underway!! :-)) I'll show you what it is, and give you the details tomorrow.
     Phew!!! I do like to talk!! But I'm finally done!.....Stop that clapping!!! ^_^ Enjoy the rest of your weekend everybody!!!

I Like To Talk

I like to talk;
I like to gab;
I like a girlfriend
free confab!

I like to chat;
I like to speak;
I find that words
are what I seek.

I like the chatter
of a crowd;
Not in a whisper,
but out loud.

But, please no talking
while you chew.
{Speaking does 
have manners too!}

I like the noise
that utterance does.
The constant
conversation buzz.

Maybe I need a
word-free diet;
No! I could not
withstand the quiet!

So, I will talk;
Oh yes! I'll dabble
in a constant
lingo babble.
