Hawk Revisited; Garden Visited and The UpLifting Blogger Award Received and Bestowed

Did I do it justice or should I have left well enough alone? Happy Sunday from my Garden
This award was beautifully created by and given to me by Lolo at Studio Lolo:

I take liberty to use her words to describe it: "This award goes to fellow bloggers who visit frequently and raise my spirits with their kind words of encouragement, their beautiful images and their wonderful outlook on life. They make blogging a positive experience and continue to make my life richer. Please feel free to pass this award along to your friends. I ask that you do name them but you don't have to link to them. Just stop by their blogs and let them know you've given them this award. Here are my recipients in no particular order. Thanks to all of you who raise me up! xoxo" I pass it on to the following bloggers (and please note Lolo already gave it to many of my followers so if YOU do not see your name here it is because I know you already have this award!) And if godforbid I left your name/blog out PLEASE KNOW I APPRECIATE YOU TOO!!! AND HELP YOURSELF TO THE AWARD AS IT IS FOR YOU TOO!!!!
