Early this evening found us sitting on a bench where the river meets the sea...so serene. A favorite spot! You can take a look by clicking here. Noticed a gull dive into the river and I assumed that what it caught was a fish. As the gull flew to the rocky shore with it's catch I got a better look and discovered it was an apple! I never knew gulls dined on apples and this one really seemed to enjoy it!
We were in Connecticut over the weekend to attend the wedding of our nephew. Their dog, Marge, was the ringbearer! She had a wonderful time as did all of the guests. It was a special magical wedding. Congratulations J & S.
Later in the evening, we had a chance to stop by the home of Tiger, my cat niece. We hadn't seen her in quite a long time... she is as sweet as ever!
Returned home last night and went out into the garden early this morning... as I was looking up through my camera lens into the face of a tall sunflower, I felt the presence of something...upon looking down, there was Kita, the neighbor's cat, brushing up against me.
I returned to study the sunflower and just as I took a photo a magical thing happened, a hummingbird appeared in the picture frame.
I watched as it moved on to the honeysuckle.... it's wonderful to be able to spend quiet moments in the garden.
I'm an artist/illustrator specializing in ink and watercolors and photography. My little studio in Maine is nestled in our garden by a babbling brook. Everyday I draw inspiration from the pets who have touched my life, our garden, birds and wildlife critters, quaint old houses, children, shells, scenes of the seaside and more.
Hope to share my art and observations with you and don't forget to take a moment to notice the precious little things around you.
