Life is made precious by connections, whimsy and sharing the wonder of it all.
I'd have missed this Tree Frog a few weeks ago if mother hadn't noticed him as she reached for the banister to steady herself as she went down the porch stairs.
Great Spreadwing Damselfly
A tiny tired spider
A Tiger Swallowtail on Tithonia
Bee dance on Dahlias (This is pretty neat, clicked)
Great Blue Heron
Wary Jumping Spider(Oh, do click)
Tito? (Actually, you're looking across a patio table at socks that my brother had kicked off. My husband pointed out that from his perspective it looked like Tito lying there)
Tito and 'Sock Tito'. (Just a different perspective)
I'm headed back to Mom's after a few days here at home to restore order and reassure myself that hubby is doing OK in my absence. Mom is doing better, but a TIA required a Doppler study of her carotids and there may have to be a little intervention there. One day at a time.
Summer is gone. We northern bloggers are sharing a sense of 'where did it go' as summer has vanished into the hedgerows where the Goldenrod and Asters frame the tawny fields.
So I wanted to leave a few of my favorite photos from the last weeks, a little reminder to myself that even when life is tough - beauty and whimsy persist - perhaps no further away then under a flower petal or resting on the porch banister.
Hope you are all well and sharing laughter and joy with those you love. Life is very precious.
