Today, June 21, the first day of summer.
Farmer’s Market flowers….
With my macro lens and camera, I went for a walk to the woods, just at the end of our inlet. Finding spring flowers blooming, especially ones that will have wild fruit in a few months, is exciting. Today I found wild honeysuckle and wild raspberries in bloom. The soft raspberry pinks stood out against the leafy greens and dark stems.
The template is from Kim Klassen’s Inner Circle supplies, and is fun to add my photos to, as well as her textures and some purchased fun fonts.
My neighbor has planted an English Garden around her condo and patio. The peacefulness is very inviting with bird baths and feeders, quiet running water in the fountains and lovely flowers beginning to bloom.
In the garden this week: Ajuga, Woodland Geranium, Speedwell with toadstool, and Woodland Columbine

Photography is a real passion I have. Once I grasped the technicals of the camera and lens, picking up my camera was an act that let me be in another world, one of imagination, seeing the unseen, capturing a special place or moment. These things still give me a peacefulness, and sense of excitement. They are what drives me to pick up my camera, and begin…looking through the viewfinder or at the LCD to make more, new, better pictures.
The end result for me is one of peace and calm, satisfaction with my finds, and being rewarded with completing another brand new adventure in outdoor photography.
Warm sunshine and temperatures graced our earthly location the past several weeks, giving us hope of early Spring time. Wednesday we awoke to 3″ of snow covering trees, grass, and rooftops. It did quickly melt throughout the day, as the sun came out, again warming our land.
