    Those photos are beautiful! I like the first one best. It makes me think of the perfect summer day– sitting under the shade of a tall tree and reading a book, taking a nap or just enjoying the sun.

    i love sunlight shining through leaves.
    These photos are just lovely. It’s nice to know that the sun is shining somewhere!

    i also love the irises-
    especially the purple ones,
    the brilliance of their colors.
    And when the start dying end of summer- oh the scent of their dying! Such a pretty odor.

    mmm. I love the asparagus! Was that growing wild?

    I took a tour on long island once, with “wild steve brill” who took us on a walk around a park and helped us to identify the wild growing edible plants. It was so cool! Of course I don’t really trust myself on my own, but things like asparagus would be pretty clear!

    I started my garden recently. Now I wish I had planted some asparagus! 😀

    Next year…

    those are gorgeous!!

    Question – what is that one in the barbie jeep? It looks like a nest? And I can’t tell, but it sort of looks like a snake in there, which totally freaked me out. Please tell me it’s a baby bird.

    Kemi, thank you! I like that one too.

    Christine, I agree about the scent of dying. How poetic!

    Logan, thanks for commenting. We are all well.

    Deb, my dad always lets the asparagus go to seed naturally, so every year it comes up again. It is within the borders of his garden, so not exactly wild, but not exactly cultivated either.

    CA, thank you! In the pink toy car there is a sparrow’s nest with four unhatched speckled eggs. Isn’t that the silliest place to make a nest?

    FW, You ABSOLUTELY have talent girl! I just think the nest and egg photos are AMAZING. I also favor the single flower pics. Just beautiful! I saw the blackberry bushes on our trip; they are over flowing with flowers…I want to come back and pick them!!!!

    LOVE IT! Crazy asparagas! I, too, thought that was a snake in the pink car. I so love iris flowers…

    Kristine, thanks for visiting my blog! Your family is often in my thoughts. Be well.

    CG, thank you for encouraging me.

    Robert, it is really peaceful there. I enjoy being close by and visiting when we can.

    CuriousC, we were shocked to find a nest in there. We were going to play with it, but had to change our plans!

    Thanks, Brian. I was so far away that it turned out fuzzy, and I hesitated to even post it. I need to learn more about taking photos, but I am glad that you like it!
