Wedding Glow Sticks

When we got home Saturday night after a fun wedding reception, I saw the glow sticks still aglow.



You reflect on the celebration with dear friends, sharing the joy, the wonderful live music and delicious food.

Happy wedding Michelle snd Sean.

Clintonville Blossoms and Bubbles

Strolling with Charles (1) around the neighborhood. 

Hot summer sun. The colors so rich and alive.

I appreciate the gardeners’ efforts. 

Back at the house on the front porch he said “bubble” and pointed to the chair.Underneath was a red plastic bear with bubble stuff. You had to squeeze the Bear’s stomach and it took awhile for me to get the hang of it.

Mother’s Day Night

This pretty bouquet traveled from Pittsburgh to Ohio in the car. A friend brought it to my doorstep the other day. I’ve been thinking about her a lot this weekend.

Since I was going visiting family, I couldn’t leave the flowers in Pittsburgh. They were so colorful. 

Sunday afternoon, I put them on Laura’s front porch to photograph their beauty. 

I thought how much my mom would have enjoyed them.  

Grateful for those who have gone on before and all those here on earth with us now. 

Thanks M.A.

Winter’s Antidote

Winter’s antidote.


My sister said she’d gotten some pussy willows to hang the wooden rabbit ornaments on and I’d just written a reply to a comment from Stef, 

I can’t wait to post signs of Spring. 

Gift from a Friend 

Thanks J.  I’m home again. 

I received your parcel. Lovely!

I love the gift of the blue glass vase and the accompanying book of sketches, watercolors  and recipes from Provence. 

So cool that you met the author/ artist Mary Ann Miller, too. Travels with a Blue Vase  website shows her other books and it would be hard to chose between Paris or the third one of Britain and Ireland. Guess I’ll have to get them both. 

I look forward to putting fresh flowers in the blue vase and photographing them.

Are you going to take a trip with the sketchers? Or a class in a local cafe? 

Thanks again,
