Hello, Friends!!  I am hoping today finds you all well and that you all are receiving some sunshine wherever you may be located!! Spring, here in Virginia, has been more like a yo-yo from cold to warm with a record number of mornings with freezing temperatures,  The flowers were out, the leaves were appearing on the trees, my daylilies were popping out of the ground and growing nicely and now I have a bunch of brown foliage, wilted or dead flowers, and a lot of dead leaves on the trees.  I so love this time of year and am looking forward to when Spring has Sprung to stay.

Today I would like to share I created for this week's Shining the Light challenge using the recipe beginning with each letter of the Acronym- O D B D.
