W is for What a Wonderful World


I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Bob Thiele and George David Weiss

PS. Happy Birthday to a wonderful silvery-gold friend! (You know who you are!)
and a Happy little shout out to the amazingly sweet blogger I met at my neighbors garage sale! You were exactly like I thought you'd be AND it was a pleasure to meet beautiful you and your beautiful little daughter!

I spent the evening with Granddaughter Alivia and she sang 'It's a Wonderful World' most of the time. She says they sing it everyday at school.

Great quote! I like "It's a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong, too. Now, I'm going to be humming that song in my head this morning! ;)

Thanks for the reminder! I've been a little down because I'm just not ready to deal with winter yet, but without the winter snow, we can't have the summer blooms!
