The What Is It ANSWER

This was fun. Many of you were close with your answers but Beth (aka Lisi Bee aka Edna) was the first one to get it correct along with Elise on Facebook. It is a macro of the sprinkler shot above that I took at the Botanical Gardens in their Garden of Fragrance. It's nice to see something other than a flower, huh? Thanks all.

The What Is It Contest

It's a macro of something of which I see about three times a week. That is your only clue. Are there any prizes you ask? Nope, just for fun.

There are so many memories that have taken root in my mind and heart while growing up listening to Michael and his music. To list just one song or one memory is impossible. I've loved Michael ever since I was a child listening to the Jackson 5. His death touched me deeply and on this one year anniversary I wanted to pay tribute to the kind and loving person he was and the extraordinary musician he was. I have many favorite Michael Jackson songs but I wanted today to bring you Earth Song - one of the most heartfelt and important songs ever written by Michael. Take time to watch and really listen to the lyrics. Understand that we all need to protect and save our earth from destruction because it is in our hands and we all need to do our part to save our home.

RIP Micheal, we love you.
