Whimsy in the Garden

July 23, 2015

I added some whimsical features to my garden this year and they have been really fun to photograph.

Orange blooms on the blanket flower contrast with tiny blue birdhouse.

The Beginning

July 14, 2015

As I begin this blog, I think (at this time anyway) that it will be a blog of few words and many photographs.  I love to take and share photographs and, well, we will see where this takes me.

To begin, here are a few of my favourites from the last few weeks.
