In my original post Wordless Wednesday: What Are These Big Birds Doing Here? I asked if anyone had a better caption for the above picture to let me know. I got some comments but in those comments some of you told me you tried to come up with a caption but couldn’t. I appreciate those people tried. However, sadly only 2 of you sent me captions. They were great captions in fact. So much so I can’t decide a winner. So what am I going to do? I’m going to leave it up to my wonderful readers. Below is a poll with three captions. What I want you to do is vote for your favorite caption. I won’t be hurt or upset if my caption isn’t chosen. So choose your favorite caption.

The last time I talked to God was today.
Getting bullied isn’t always easy and walking away is even harder.
While I was thinking about what to do for Sparks I had a thought and that thought was why don’t you do something with the meaning of encouragement. Of course I tried and tried to come up with something else but all I could think of was wanting Spring to get here and the sunshine and the pretty flowers to stay for a while. Then I said to myself, flowers that’s it I’ll do it on flowers. So I looked up on the internet to see what flowers are associated with encouragement and friendship and this is what I found. I have included their meanings as well.

On January 21, 2018, I asked you to caption my squirrel picture which is above. I want to thank everyone who sent me captions for the above picture. The captions were so good I had a hard time choosing. I finally decided on the caption that kittiesblue from The Cat On My Head. You’ll see the winning caption above. Congratulations.
Please note that I’ll probably ask for help with captioning other pictures in the future.
