Summer Joys

It’s July first, and in the fifties here in Northern Iowa. I’m signing in before the Fourth of July, when we’ll have twenty-plus folks here to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Yup, a lucky firecracker–he always gets a party.

Thought I’d share some photos and thoughts on the joys of summer. Most of the pics speak for themselves.


Hearing that old bat C-R-A-A-A-C-K!!





Sunshine through tall maples …







Daylily glory, dewdrop peonies, and ┬ásummer moments – the best of summer is here.

For a writer, every color, every nuance, every shade and hue is novel fodder. Voila!
