Some 1st's on the 1st AND.... Tell me about the bloglovin??????

Oh MY!!  July 1st!!!  The summer is speeding by... 
I am onto creating pumpkins...just doesn't seem right..
We were off to such a cool start...lots of rain... my flowers are slow to get going....
BUT.... I noticed a few firsts and thought I would share....
 New baby Robin... I am thinking his first day out of his nest...Trying to get his "sea" legs... or hiding in my flowers yesterday...

 What a good boy or girl... I was able to take several pictures.....
 Then summer flowers just starting to open... Some a wee bit blurry... sorry...



 Little Americana added to the garden for the summer....




 Knuckles says HI!  He likes to be outside while I water so he can drink from the hose!
So, I see everyone is jumping to bloglovin...Please tell me what it is and why we are doing this???  Oh I hate change... Is this part of blogspot? or a whole new blog?  I have been working the family stuff, that if this has come up, I have missed it... but do we need to do this? Is it better? HELP!
Hubby off all week... Today errands... enjoy! OLM

Hi Marie, Always love touring your flower garden, just beautiful, such great ideas you use in your beds. Can't help you on the new blog thing, don't know what it is all about either. Yes it is pumpkin time, been busy getting things made also. Can't wait to see your pumpkins, love the ones I have gotten from you before. Have a great 4th. Hugs Vicky

Hi Marie, your flower garden is lovely! I hate change too, and I don't want to loose my blogger friendships. Please keep in tough if I loose you. I don't understand all of this bloglovin, but I have changed to that, and you can carry all of your blogs that you follow over to that. I also put a widget in my top right corner so people can follow me on bloglovit. The reason I have done it is because from what I understand the blogger lists that we read are ending after today, I am not sure if that is so, I was afraid to take any chance. take care and good luck. hugs, Lecia

Hi Marie,
Pretty much what Lecia said about BLOGLOVIN' - it's similar to Google Reader but I personally think it's much easier to manage - just got it a few days ago but finally today learned how to transfer the blogs I follow...sooooo easy to do. I actually like it a lot...so will you.
But if you want to read the blogs you follow you will have to do it or you will have to search them out and that won't be fun.
I claimed both of mine today too whatever that means...still don't understand that one.
And I read on Google Reader that is FOR SURE IS ENDING AT MIDNIGHT TONIGHT...so hurry and get them transferred over. Mine only took a minute to do.

Now...on to the decorating you have done. So pretty - don't you just love the Patriotic theme...I do.
Love that Knuckles...he's such a camera hound...lol

You make some wonderful pumpkins my dear friend - keep plugging away I just may need some more.

Blessings,
Karen

LOVE all your flower displays! My geraniums didn't do so well this year. I think they are done blooming so I just have greens now..:(
I changed over to bloglovin because I couldn't comment and my follower widget wasn't working. Then I heard it was going away. It's super easy to do and all my blogs I follow transferred over. I think it was 2 clicks and I was done. If you need help, let me know!
Hugs to you...been thinking of you!

I wouldn't worry about it Marie. Only google reader is going. You'll keep your followers and still have your dashboard. Just another big frenzy about nothing. If you did use the google reader just start using your blog dashboard. Warm Blessings! Amy

Oh thank goodness! I was like WHAT is bloglovin? LOL! Well, they have to mess with things all the time!
I love your flowers, and the birds are so cute to watch!
Well, you are probably smart to start the fall items now, I want to enjoy summer. It has been very hot here, and lots of rain as you know.
I just don't do well with humidity since I am ahem~ cough~ menopausal! LOL! I am one of the hottest chicks around! LOL!
Knuckles is so sweet, and I hope that you all have a nice July 4th!
God bless!
Renee

I am staying put too. Can't get into techy stuff. Do well to write a blog. Loved the tour. Have a wonderful week

Heather Wise said...

I didn't change anything, just waited it out. Nuttin'.

Oh, Knuckles! I love that grin!!!! And the baby robin is adorable! Your flowers are beautiful! My beds are sad this year. No time to plant inbetween storms. I usually have my deck as my oasis of flowers and such, but it rains so much, it isn't worth putting the cushions out! Boo!

I hope you are doing well! We need to chat more soon!

Love and hugs!
Heather

Beautiful flowers! I joined Bloglovin and Feedly. I like Bloglovin because they email me updates. I still read my blogs from blogger most of the time, but sometimes the list isn't there. You probably have it figured out by now.
