Gorgeous Betty! Thanks for sharing the love up-close with I Heart Macro:-)

Please consider yourself officially invited to participate this year's 5th Annual Gratitude (word) Quilt. Instructions (it is very simple) and a link that explains the origin of the word quilt can be found at the top of my blog. In past years there have been participants from every continent except Antarctica. I hope you'll join us:-)

How beautiful and how interesting about the bird. (As you probably know that word has a different meaning in Spanglish). I certainly like your meaning better!!!
