Perfectly ripe for tomorrow's breakfast!

I'm sure to another turtle,
he/she is quite handsome/pretty.
I'm thankful I am not a turtle...
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks."
This evening I made time to walk the trail.
I heard something in the woods,
and turned to find this buck watching me carefully.
I haven't seen any deer for weeks,
and this moment was special.
His antlers are just starting to form,
and I don't know how old he is.
I hope he stays in the woods around the trail so I can see him again...

We knew Ty had a game tonight.
He told us.
So, as soon as we could, we headed out to the ballpark to watch the "Durham Bulls" do their stuff.
Ty just finished second grade,
which means a lot of future games.
But for tonight,
this game was the most important.
Until the next one...

It was raining and dark with clouds.
I stopped on my way into the house back from an errand to catch the new apples soaking in the rain...

For five precious minutes,
the rain stopped.
The Peonies are trying hard to bloom,
but are reluctant to open up with no sun to face...

Congratulations, Marti and Chad.
You, more than anyone else I know deserve everlasting happiness...
I love you,

Love is patient,
An early evening drive through the country is the perfect way to end a busy day.
A rocking chair on a front porch overlooking the spring prairie must have seemed like heaven on earth to the early settlers.
I can't help but wonder if one of those settlers dug the hole for this old post and wired it to set his boundary.
If so, it has weathered the seasons well...

After spending the day presenting at St. Mary's School in Paris,
Taylor and I took a few minutes to stop inside the church.
The teachers encouraged us to visit,
and we were not disappointed.
The church has gone through some recent renovations,
and we found a very peaceful, quiet atmosphere in a church that is beautiful in an old-fashioned way.

I am behind in planting the annuals this year.
I have spent the time that has been sunny working in the perennials, instead,
as I waited for the warmer, drier weather.
This week I have been paid back as the garden has found its color.
I grabbed the little bit of sunshine this evening to take a picture that will get me through next January...
