…I wish I were there to be doing it too!

I wonder what Piglet is doing, thought Pooh

I wish I were there to be doing it too. 

Today, my daughter completed her undergrad degree, so I do actually know what my girl is doing – unlike Pooh wondering what Piglet is doing. But, I truly wish I were there – to help her celebrate, to help her appreciate the magnitude of her accomplishment.

In a few weeks, I will be able to share her graduation with her. Until then, I’ll just be wishing!



“Piglet noticed that even though he had a Very Small Heart,

it could hold a rather large amount of Gratitude” – A.A. Milne


The list of things for which I feel gratitude is long.

Sunshine and purple flowers definitely appear on that list.



The miracle of bees

I love to photograph things that crawl and fly. Yet, being allergic to bees, it’s not always in my own best interest to photograph bees. But a couple of years ago, my hubby got me a great lens that allows close up shots while standing a ways back. Thankfully!

This shot, like the one from July 27, was taken at the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens in Vail, Colorado last month. This is a beautiful garden that I highly recommend. More shots to come in the days ahead.
