Summer is Upon Us

Just a friendly reminder to do your part when enjoying the beauty of nature.

Take only photos.

Leave only footprints.

Happy Summer!

Sgt. Pepper and Her Lonely Hearts Club Band

Cassie wanted to wear a Sgt. Pepper Jacket - pink like Ringo's - to graduation. She's had this in her mind for months and months.

I called my sister, Susie, who's better at sewing than I. Much.

She agreed to help out.

Between Cassie's vision, Susie's expertise, and my ability to spot star buttons we three managed to create a very feminine version of Ringo's jacket.

Cassie added bright pink high high heels and slim black slacks to complete her ensemble.

She looked fantastic.

The above photo made me chuckle today. In the midst of lining up for a group photo the kids were aligned as such. Looks like Sgt. Pepper and His Band, don't you think?

Sgt. Cassie Pepper.
Congratulations, Graduate!

You're a born leader. And you looked smashing on this auspicious day.

Color Returns

Yes, color returns!

And with it Scent...


...and Joy!

Garden bursts with Life!

I could take and post pictures all day but I'd rather be out there caring for the life-giving treasures, rubbing my fingers on the herbs lifting to my nose those wonderful fragrances, nibbling the berries, admiring the flowers, smiling at the rapidly growing vegetable plants.

Happy June, everyone!

Tour de France *cough cough*

Saw this photo in a store front window the other day. It cracked me up!
