That old cliche that nothing in life is black and white is also a truism. I’ve not been here for a while because it’s been a very interesting time: I came to a crossroads
Last January I lamented the hot dry summer we’d had. Little did I know that this summer would be worse. And then it rained. Proper rain.
I have had reason, over the past three or so months, to take fun photos – for both holiday memories and for other reasons. Sometimes I just point and click, and at others, I point and click wondering
So much for getting back into regular posts. I’ve learned my lesson. Like last year, I had an unexpected request to work in a spot that meant a road trip. I pointed the camera at various things.Then, the morning we were to return home, a dog barked. At 4 am.

The end of winter stirs all sorts of things, including Monster Cat. Why he is nosing around The Sandbag House and Magic Melon and Princess Pearli, only he knows.
Last week I was delighted to see a post from a blog pal who had gone silent for a while. I had missed her posts: usually of teeny weeny creatures – magnificent shots.

Today is an auspicious day. The Husband celebrates his fourscore and ten. A happy day. Another happy day, earlier this year was that leisurely trip to town, when I had the camera in hand.
