Creamy and Dreamy and a Tea Party Too

Her great aunt wore this organza slip and dress as a flower girl about 70 years ago. She asked that I photograph her grand-niece wearing it, and this is just one of many captures as she played on her bed.

My style is simply to follow a child as he/she plays and capture the memories!

Sweet P phoned her cousins to ask them to come to her tea party. She was so excited!

Among her guests were Chloe Bunny, Barney Cabbage Patch, Benedict Bunny, and Piglet.

No one minded that this Two served tea and cookies in her pink and white slips.

A good time was had by all!

Sunset at Taneycomo

The worst day of fishing is better than the best day at work.

Sunset fishing at Lake Taneycomo in southern Missouri. He got his line wet, the fish weren’t biting, but he went to sleep relaxed.

It’s all about the bait. And being patient.

Ornamental Cabbage

Looking forward to digging in the garden and planting beautiful veggies and blooms — dreaming through these next few months!

Love the colors in a variety of ornamental cabbage plants that range from dark to light shades. It’s fun to browse the seed catalogs and plan …

A Winter Walk

It’s easier to tolerate winter when the sun shines and when you have a dog to walk!

Fishing vs Catching

“A bad day fishing is better than a good day at work!”

These two with their O’Pa at a favorite pond are simply happy to be casting and reeling and catching little biters.

Lined Up

Where did Summer go?

The watering cans, well-used, gave drinks to so many flowers and veggies

planted on our deck.

Now we’ve picked our last cherry tomatoes,

watered the impatiens and petunias for the last times,

and prepare to winterize soon.

But not too soon.

Please.

Give us more beautiful Autumn days to sprinkle thirsty flowers,

though spindly and fading,

just to enjoy the task.
