A Treasure

This morning I found this beautiful piece of art on the path in my garden.
We are off to SF tomorrow morning early. I probably won't be able to post until I come back this Sunday.
Be well, sending my love...

The Pond in the Morning...and marguerites for Marguerite

Oh, the joy of viewing the pond in the morning and the opening of new water lilies....and watching the koi King strolling about and contemplating his dominion, followed by a small admiring crowd of little kois, shubunkins and comets... Then a loving look at my new marguerites, planted in the honor of our precious and beloved maman, Marguerite! Finally I have to take a picture of this "haunted" house.....way before Halloween...but I'd rather not see the inhabitant...

In the Garden

Found this little nest, sad...the eggs are pale blue like robin eggs, so delicate and precious. It was under our pine trees. Finally planted my tomato plant!


The Wedding....the End

Immediately above and up:
While the dancing and talking and laughter and drinking and eating when into the night a little girl was deep asleep on our bed!
Dancing with the musicians....
Lovely Debbie, David' sister
The reason for the celebration!

The Canon Powershot G9

Wow!.........After much research, talking to my sister who owns one, talking with Steve......I decided (with Steve's blessing) to get the Canon Powershot I said, WOW! We were expecting friends over tonight so after charging the battery I quickly shot a couple of pictures...not the greatest artistically but great pictures for just pressing the button-between making the marinade for our grilled shrimp and setting everything up and ready....nuts..olives, cheese platter, etc.
