Most Thoughtful



My dad (and my mom)
To know them is to love them -
So many agree!

Summer Snow...on the Mountain

Snow on the Mountain w/Honey Bee & an Anoymous 6-Legged Friend

Snow on the Mountain
Considered a weed to some,
A beauty to me!

Heart of the Storm

Storm coming in over Sasqua Pond 

A storm coming in
But a heart seen by others
Heart wins every time!

Imperfect Perfection

Kousa Dogwood - after the rain

The Kousa Dogwood
Shouldn't be blooming right now
It's not listening!

Ending & Beginning

Once again, beautiful petunias - one spent, one in its glory

Lovely as it fades
Like a dancer's swirling skirt
 Petunia girl

Summertime Snowflake

Queen Anne's Lace
in the fields around my folks' MO home

(
http://mdc.mo.gov/discover-nature/field-guide/queen-anne-s-lace-wild-carrot)

Things I didn't know: "A myth says the purplish flower at the center is a drop of blood shed when "Queen Anne" pricked herself while making the "lace". In reality, that small flower attracts insect pollinators. This nonnative Missouri plant competes against our native species." 


Summertime Snowflakes
Through the fields 'round my folks' home
Warmer than winter's
