It's worth soaking one's new sneakers in the wet grass to get shots of these flowers after a storm, and with a brand new lens no less. And then there are the groundhogs, wild turkeys, redwing blackbirds, American bluebirds, goldfinches, swallows, chipmunks, squirrels, frogs, and various other beasties to meet.
All this after a beautiful weekend of friends and family. Life is good. Yes, indeed.
This last shot is of just one of the many, many peony beds I've been promising. I'll share them this week! A few plants are already blooming, and the rest are coming soon. What a show, and what a tease I am.
I hope you all had a beautiful weekend. I have been completely swamped with writing work, but I am making my way slowly around the blog world once more and am looking forward to seeing you soon.
In the meantime, if you are craving a writing exercise or two, fly on over to my writing blog, The Magpie's Pen, where I offer an exercise every Friday.
Wishing you a week of curiosity and adventure . . .
