Lots of pictures this week – most of them flowers. Hope you don’t mind!
Please be in prayer for Dr. M’s mother, who was taken to the hospital from the nursing home last Thursday with jaundice & an upper respiratory condition of unknown origin. When we saw her yesterday she seemed perkier, but we don’t know what’s causing the jaundice yet.
In lighter news, in case you missed it, I posted pics of Daddy & Amy in their skit outfits here.

On Sunday I took a couple of pictures of our neighbors’ irises (irisi?). Aren’t they lovely?

It’s the weekly squirrel!

Dr. M took a picture of these lovely beauties that are all over our roadsides up here – I was so glad. It was another case of him anticipating the picture I wanted before I could even talk about it.

Travel day to NC. Before we left I saw a red wing blackbird in our back yard again. Doesn’t he know that we’re not the side of a road or a swamp? Oh, maybe we are a swamp. Hmmm.
On our way down I had to take a picture of this billboard. And that’s all I have to say about that.

I was sick this day – fever, croupy cough. So I sat around like a lump all day (hey, that is different than how I sit around all the other days thank you very much). I did get out & take some pictures of Daddy & Amy’s flowers & garden.

Daddy became convinced that I had not fulfilled the obligations of the card in this post & “made” me help him pick strawberries.
This is the State of the Bug – Pressed Into Service. For, um, about 15 minutes.
While I was slaving away, Dr. M was doing what he does best – capturing his home county on digital media. We just like the play of light & shadow on this one.
And guess what he found?

Saturday morning I took another couple of pictures of flowers. And I was trying to capture the oasis that is my father’s place, but I don’t think it’s translatable into a picture. It’s green grass and mature trees & flowers at every turn. Shade & sun and barking dogs. The smell of baking bread and something simmering for dinner. It’s my other home. Where I eat the leftovers for breakfast.
In the afternoon I went up to my aunt V’s house and spent a nice time visiting with three of my dad’s sisters (where the heck were you Lila? You were supposed to know by osmosis that I was there you know). I don’t know why, but I enjoy shocking these ladies (except maybe Mimi, I don’t think she’s shockable). Even so, these are the faces of some folks I love and admire a lot. It’s not their fault that I revert to adolescence around them :)
While I was there I took some pics of V’s flowers. Love the volunteer petunia that grew at her garage door. And the calla just makes me sigh – so pretty!
