Rain has been abundant this spring and summer. The fauna and flora in our area are all very happy. The best watering comes from heavenly watering, a wise gardener once told me. Better than any spigot and garden hose.
Hosta blooms captured with my macro lens right after an early morning rain:

Fresh. Delicate. Ethereal.
This is just one of the hundreds of Spring blooms in our gardens.
I can’t get enough of this beauty. Simply awesome to see and inhale.

The G Family met me at the neighborhood park for some play time. Their youngest son just turned six months old and he used his core strength to sit well for the very first time without toppling over! Big brother (14) adores his little brother and was so helpful in keeping him happy by blowing bubbles and supplying him with colorful props!
Look at little B’s beautiful eyes and eyelashes! His bright personality shined through the whole morning!
I love to capture photos of a family having fun — they got some tickle time!
We took a break and got out the St. Louis’ famous Fitz’s Root Beer, complete with old fashioned striped paper straws decorated with bow ties for the guys and a girly pink bow for mom! How cute is little B with his bow-tied sippy cup!
What a handsome dad and son combo!
Happy Father’s Day to this very special dad!

The flowering Japanese cherry tree has the most delicate, ruffled blooms, and is so pretty against the clear blue sky! I wish the blooms would last all Spring and Summer!

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!
1 John 3:1
There are SO many quotes about love.
My favorite is “Love is a VERB.”
I pray that this dear couple experiences much love as they prepare to make a life together through marriage and family.
I pray that their third “cord” in their relationship as husband and wife is Jesus Christ, the One who demonstrates perfect love and forgiveness to us all.
I wish you much happiness, D and B!

Azaleas and Wave Petunias — Spring is my favorite season, hands down!
Daffodils in our yard — every time I look at these bright, cheerful “faces” I think of Easter trumpets playing “Jesus Christ Is Risen Today, Alleluia!”
He is risen! He is risen indeed!
