The little maple tree on the corner of the
house was rustling, ah ha, there's Chippy
filling up on the whirligigs!

While leaving the Post Office today I saw the
cutest dog in the car beside ours...
had to take her photo,
this is Sophie.

Last Friday, I was taken by surprise when I
suddenly noticed one of the empty flower pots
had something in it!

Those little chipmunks are into everything!

17 Years

I am mostly at a loss for words for
seventeen years of joy, grace and beauty in our home
has been touched by great sadness...
we lost our beloved cat Polly on August 10th...
she will always be in our hearts
and we miss her sweet countenance and presence every day.

As I stood still in the garden thinking of my
beloved Mom
(I miss her so dearly)
the beautiful hummingbird appeared.

A special gift from one of my sisters...
a solar hummingbird...
it sat in the sun all day and charged
so tonight it shone with revolving colors,
shades of red, green and blue.
