Three Sunflowers, Waiting to Meet You

I love woodland sunflowers. No matter how many I see, or how many photos I have, I can always find another interpretation of their exuberant yellow expansiveness. These three grew at the edge of the woods along the trial, and were caught by the sun on an August afternoon like a spotlight. They make everyone […]

Some Photos From Today

Do I choose to drop off my car for service on a day when I’m sure to find interesting things to photograph? Or are they always there to be found? Really I don’t like to drop my car off for service any day but finding interesting things on the walk back home eases the financial […]

July Nature Desktop Calendar: Market Flowers

Such a huge variety of flowers in buckets at the market! I visit many farmer’s markets through the summer now that every community seems to have one at least once a week, to purchase what my garden is not producing. All the farmers are local and are small family farms and I enjoy meeting the […]

The Huntress: Four Photos

About the artwork On a quiet afternoon the garden was full of excitement. For several years before moving in with me, Mimi “belonged” to a neighbor who would not spay her and she had six litters of kittens*. She hunted for food for her kittens, and my yard was her territory. Now that she’s a […]

Brighten Up Your Morning, Your Whole Day

I took so many photos on this morning of the buttercups glistening with the night’s rainfall, and some I took just for the effect of all that brilliant yellow. I captured this photo right in my own back yard, which is just a little spot of land in a regular old neighborhood. It’s a registered […]

SOLDIER 1861–1865

In the dense, comforting shade of a century-old spreading maple, a section of the row of headstones farthest back in the military veteran’s section, the first stones to be installed during the Civil War, reads only: SOLDIER 1861–1865 A father, brother, husband, son of someone, unknown, but honored by a headstone that tells of the […]

One Happy Kitty, Mimi in Buttercups and Forget-me-nots

Mimi is never so happy as when she’s out in the yard, as you can see by her “happy tail”. She’s so short that I can’t get a good photo of her face without flowers in the way, but perhaps that’s how she wants it. I keep a breakaway bell collar on her all the […]
