The instructions are to pass this award on to 10 other bloggers who bring me happiness and inspiration. I know that some other bloggers are also giving this award right now, but I think it's as much fun to get the award as it is to give it away to someone else also.
I would like to present the "You Make My Day" award to the following bloggers:
Richard (At the Water) - fantastic pictures of squirrels and bluejays, plus some pretty funny jokes too
Mary (Mary's View) - I envy her storytelling and writing ability, not to mention the great pictures she always takes--not just birds, but lizards, fish and her two sweet & cute Boston Terriers
Barefoot Gardener - There's always something interesting going on in her life plus she's a good and patient mom and I can't wait to see how her gardens grow this year.
Robin (Bumblebee) - She has Evening Grosbeaks at her bird feeders! She's teaching me about gardening and I'm teaching her about birds.
Monarch's Nature Blog - He's always got some fabulous bird or nature pictures and he's a great mentor for the the young naturalists
Jayne (Journey Through Grace) - She has great birds in her backyard that always pose nicely for the photo ops, plus her "glass half full" attitude inspires me to try and be a better person
Cathy (Looking Up) - Cathy has a lot going on in her life right now, so her blogs aren't as frequent, but when she posts they're wonderful....and her comments on my posts always make me smile.
Lisa at Greenbow - Lisa does wonderful things in her backyard garden and I'm inspired to copy some of her ideas in my gardens next summer. Plus it's already spring at her place--gives me hope here in the frozen northland.
Ruth (Body, Soul and Spirit) - I've learned a lot from Ruth's posts about nature and she's an excellent cook and inspires me to try new recipes using natural ingredients
Marsha (Marsha's Garden & Birds) - A fellow Minnesotan, it's always fun to see what critters and birds are hanging around in Marsha's rural backyard. And her posts about the swans back in January were fabulous.
