sum-sum-summer

One more sleep…and then summer begins….

Today, for the first time, I realized I’m ready. I’m ready for the hammock and the possibilities that this summer holds. I’m going to breathe it in and see where it takes me.

Whoo-ha.

 

The answer my friend…

 

I am not at all a fan of Bob Dylan, yet I truly love the lyrics to “Blowin’ in the Wind”, written by Billy Sherrill and Charlie Rich. I have a memory of singing it in church with my mom, who has an amazing voice.

Last summer, I was out taking shots in the backyard when I came across “fluff”, blowin’ in the wind. With snow on the ground today, I’m yearning for the days of light breezes and bright colours in my garden.

 

Taking a closer look

On the weekend I simply walked around the house looking through the macro lens for interesting shots.

I am really enjoying this new lens though I think the true test will be our winter vacation and the summer months with all the flowers and insects that I love!

Childhood images

“If you carry your childhood with you, you never become older” – Tom Stoppard

My hubby holds on to things and there are lots of memories in many of the items. Like green army men.

The guitar was our daughter’s in her middle school years. It made a great macro subject.
