Hello friends...thanks so much for visiting again. Before the slide show begins, I would like to thank you for all the lovely comments. I really enjoy hearing what you have to say and I try to respond to each of you. If I miss you...ooops...so sorry, sometimes I simply run out of hours in the day. But please know you are all appreciated.
So this is what my camera has been loving lately......
The view from my back deck when a weekend storm is passing through.
The gorgeous color of my redbud trees in the back yard. These beauties had sprouted within the last few years all on their own...perfect!
My thriving Clematis that seems to rise from the dead each Spring and not stop until November
The lovely pear trees that line my long driveway and showoff pristine white blooms each year.
My favorite chippy blue punched tin cabinet that hold some very special treasures from many nature walks.
She is chippy...rusty and shabby, but isn't she pretty? Thrifted, of course.
Abandoned and fallen birds nests.
My favorite is the tiny one on top...only about one and a half inches wide...so precious and very delicate.
The purple phlox is putting on a beautiful show. They creep along my front sidewalk.
Tiny scented Muscari are popping up everywhere...even in the grass!
I don't have a lot of tulips, but what I do have planted are some very nice yellow and red ones.
Don't you just love perennials? They dutifully return each year.
Great for bouquets
My camera loves seeing the secret agents tomato seeds sprouting...Ooops...their identity was a secret!
I'm in trouble now ;-<
Very happy to see my 'party birds' have returned. Gorgeous color and songs. We call them party birds because they always come in large groups and seem to sing "Woohoo..Woohoo"
I'm loving the rosy color of the finch on the left.
But what my camera was silly excited for this week was finding not one, but two packages all the way from the Cotswolds.
You all know Gretel by now and the fabulous hand needle felted creations she makes.
Well, Miss Millie had been sold (to my dismay) but then it was announced that she was available again. Ok...you know I pounced on that! After all Mildred is my middle name.....really. I always hated that name as a child, but now I love it.
How can you not fall in love with that pearl studded blouse?
Both creations are exquisite and I am so pleased to own them.
PS....Miss Goosey was very busy during her trip over the pond...she laid two Cadbury Creme Eggs !!
So that's what my camera has been loving this week...how about you?
Have you been equally as surrounded by beauty?
Leave me a comment and tell me about it!
Until next time...be kind and stay creative.
