  26. Deena,

    You are beautiful in that shade of green. I'm so glad that was your last chemo treatment and will pray the Pet/CT scan is a good one.

    I have never seen baby mourning doves. I do have baby starlings and they are as noisy as can be. LOL.

    The blue indigo buntings are so beautiful. I'm glad you can enjoy them.
