Lately

It finally feels like Summer is here. Nearly four weeks into the school break, and we are catching up on all of the pressing tasks that were on my list. Going through toy collections and piles of to-be-sorted-later. There has been a wedding, a few picnics, doctor's appointments and haircuts. Now, after just a few more to-dos, I might be able to tackle my mending and sewing list. And start planning that 15th anniversary party and the 40th birthday party too (big year for this girl!). But first, a glimpse of some of the things that have caught my attention in past days...
Phlox :: Three Cousins and an Uncle :: Daisies :: Tiny Trio :: Multnomah Falls :: Columbine :: Feast for Mimi :: Chives :: Sword Fern :: Triple Chocolate Cake :: the Garden Grows :: Mowing the Orchard :: Stick Play :: Mama School :: Huckleberries :: Lone Daisy :: Finding Faces :: On the Back of Her Head :: Robin :: Reflection :: Looking for Handouts :: Watering the Dahlias :: The Allowance Game (circa 1978) :: Bunny in Clover :: Herb Garden :: Sparklers :: the Moon with Mars on the Right :: Fun with Eyeballs

Beautiful photography, as always! Your local scenery is lovely!
I was at Multnomah Falls a couple of weeks ago! How beautiful! I'm a musician and had a music meeting in Portland--a wonderful city. The weather there was so pleasant--not like the extreme heat here in Mississippi!

Beth I love your pictures, always do. You seem so busy, with all the activities of daily living in the photos...yet you capture the SIMPLE beauty of each day as well. You manage to have a balance between the two and I command you for that. Especially for not missing the beauty of everyday. Good job dear: )
