Weekly Photo Challenge:


Finding bees of any kind atop the flowers in my garden often feels like having a Cherry On Top.

Daily Gratitude: spending the morning canning pickles and relish; date night with Dapper; biting into a juicy peach that I picked off the tree

Quote of the Day: I am not plain, or average—or God forbid—vanilla. I am peanut butter rocky road with multi-colored sprinkles, hot fudge and a Cherry On Top.   ~Wendy Mass

Weekly Photo Challenge: Details


Birds nests never cease to amaze me. How perfectly coiled this one was; how many different strands of cotton and yarn are woven into it. It’s a shame that Dapper didn’t know it was on the boat before he moved it to the marina leaving a poor mother frantic looking for her egg. 

Daily Gratitude: finishing my mosaic table top; hearing baby Robins; a cool drink of water

Quote of the Day: Imagine what seven billion humans could do if we all loved and respected each another. ~A. D. Williams

Just imagine that.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Look Up


Flora-Bama Bar

If you look up at the high ceiling of the Flora-Bama Bar (Perdido/Pensacola), you’d see surrendered bras hanging.

Daily Gratitude: spotting two black swallowtail caterpillars on the fennel; freshly caught mahi-mahi for dinner; whole grain NJ blueberry pancakes

Quote of the Day: When we look up, it widens our horizons. We see what a little speck we are in the universe, so insignificant, and we all take ourselves so seriously, but in the sky, there are no boundaries. No differences of caste or religion or race. ~Julia Gregson 

Peace matters.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Pure


Chanticleer Gardens

Pretty in pink: a little girl’s ruffles, the hem of a ballerina’s tutu, frosted rosebuds on a birthday cake, Easter Sunday crinolines, bubblegum bubbles snapping, shaving cream foam, an explosion of pink fireworks, billowing clouds of cotton candy—pure pleasure.

Daily Gratitude: a peaceful morning baking; plenty of sunshine with zero humidity; the big sound of the tiny house wren

Quote of the Day: I wish that every human life might be pure transparent freedom. ~Simone de Beauvoir
