Black-capped chickadees are one of my favorite backyard birds to watch. They are very quick and busy little critters, clinging to the sides of trees and even hanging upside down to grab a birdseed snack.
A few of my favorites from a fun one-year-old photo shoot with Grace, the granddaughter of my dear friend Brenda. A gorgeous warm May morning with the lilacs in full glory and Grace in a terrific mood, we got some great shots of a sweet little girl!
Our 2 1/2-year-old twin granddaughters Kelsey and Kassie had their very first overnighter at the cabin, and they finally (they've been begging to do it for a long time) got to take a bath in Gramaw's "BIG" (as they say) bathtub.
I've been watching home movies the past few days, and they sure do bring special memories flooding back. It's hard to watch them without shedding a few tears, as it just seems impossible that so much has changed in those years that have gone by.
This is one of my favorite movie clips, of me with Mama and Dad about 57 years ago when I was just learning to walk. Toddling unsteadily into the sure, strong arms of my Daddy.
Now Dad is the one toddling unsteadily, and I am the one giving him a helping hand.
Ever since we planted my wildflower patch behind the cabin, I've been longing for a rustic arbor to put in front of it. I've looked online and envisioned in my mind what I wanted, and this week I finally got it!
