a gem of a day

Today was a pearl necklace. Smooth and lustrous, elegant and simple. We woke, we enjoyed breakfast and moved through the day effortlessly. Chores and then some. Shortcakes for the berries and whipped cream for snack during Prime Time TV. Reading time at the Oasis before dinner on the patio ~ dogs, brats, corn. Simple meal for a simple day. Then a lovely walk . . . honestly, a gem of a day.

A tough shot to get!

What Beautiful Pictures! I was curious what state you live in, or country? We Live in Tennessee, and its still pretty hot here, When we lived in the country(now in the city) We would get a Humming Bird Stampede right around the end of September, I have pictures of us holding them at times. We had somewhere around 30 at once fighting for the feeders, It was something I will never forget!
