I'm a simple gal


after little britches left....
Oma wondered around the yard...
I was taking in all the beauty around me...

I'm always a little sad when he goes home for the night...
also a tired Oma....
my stroll around the yard pulls me back together...

 I wish you could smell these blooms....
they just popped out over night...


filling up the bird feeders (aka squirrel feeders)


thinking about my day....
showed little britches the honeysuckle..
tickled his nose with it....


we've got peppers....
it is a start....

maybe the humming birds will show up...
I know the bees will...

snapping photos....


enjoying the sights and sounds....

and so happy this time I have my camera...
when Mr. Cardinal shows up....
I'm a simple gal...
doesn't take much to make me happy...
family...
friends...
camera in my hand...
nature....

Lovely captures. Sounds like a lovely way to end the day!
