NOW I know who has been nibbling on the plants in my garden!  This little fawn and his or her brother….along with mom, of course!  All 3 were in my yard having brunch on Sunday!  How could I ever get upset with a critter this adorable?  I’m off to buy more plants……!  :-)

Why is there a part of me that still believes I can go out in the yard to photograph and not be eaten alive by bugs?  You would think I’d have learned by now that it’s not humanly possible!

 



Wash Day

My parents did not have a clothes dryer.  All of the laundry was hung outside on the wash line to dry.  During winter and wet weather, we used wash lines in the basement.  I will always remember shaking the laundry in the summer before bringing it in the house to make sure there were no critters coming along for the ride.  Seeing this makeshift clothes line reminded me of the good old days when every yard had a wash line and the clothes came off the line hardly wrinkled and smelling fresh!

I’ve tried to grow coneflowers on several occasions without success.  My next door neighbors, however, have lovely blooms alongside their driveway.  Hope they don’t mind that I visited to photograph them!

This is my idea of a perfect way to spend a day …. being with friends and watching the waves roll in from the sea.

 



A Good Morning Indeed

This is the first year that I’ve successfully grown Morning Glories – both from starter plants as well as seeds.  The rabbits have nibbled at the leaves, but the plants are still thriving.  Each morning I am greeted by these lovely pink and purple blossoms with delicate stems that twist around my metal trellis.

I feel the need for another beach day coming on!
Ahhhh….to just be alone with your thoughts and the sea (and maybe a gull or two!)

Every now and again I have a chance to do some flower photography right in my own back yard.  Currently the honeysuckle is in bloom and calling me to not only photograph, but just enjoy the delightful fragrance.  Last month the Bleeding Hearts were commanding my attention.

 



What’s In Bloom?

I was happy to find this flower in bloom in one of the containers on my back porch over the weekend.  This perennial hasn’t bloomed in several years and after the harsh winter of 2014, I wasn’t expecting to see it this year either.  What a delightful surprise!
