May


Alliums, muddy boots, and tulips.

Here is a link to some alliums I photographed when we lived in California.

A Visit from Brooklyn


Margaret recently had a surprise visit from Brooklyn. Because they just had there birthdays we had a little idea to decorate cupcakes and exchange gifts. They are still very good friends and we are so grateful they could make the drive.

Bell on a Ribbon

This toy is so simple and beautiful to me. Eliza is completely engaged. Hearing her play is so gentle.

Nursery Rhymes


I love little Kitty,
  Her coat is so warm,
And if I don't hurt her
  She'll do me no harm;
So I'll not pull her tail,
  Nor drive her away,
But Pussy and I
  Very gently will play.
She will sit by my side
 and I will give her some food
And kitty will love me
 because I am good.

Cluck, Cluck, Cluck, Cluck, Cluck.
Good Morning Miss. Hen. How many chickens have you got?
Madame I've got ten. Four of them are yellow. Four of them are brown. Four of them are speckled red, the nicest in the town

Meet Maximus

This little Kitty's name started out as Cinderella. In time we found out he was a he so a new name was given. He is curious. He loves to pounce and play. We love him and it is so fun to look out on the back porch and see him there as Clara says, "Sleeping on his house like Snoopy."

The Caterpiller

 
By Christina Rossetti
 
Brown and furry
Caterpillar in a hurry,
Take your walk
To the shady leaf, or stalk,
Or what not,
Which may be the chosen spot.
No toad spy you,
Hovering bird of prey pass by you;
Spin and die,
To live again a butterfly.
