Mary & Bright!

Lots of sun and brightness,
led us to the top of the hill,
to St. Ann's Basilica & Shrine,
in Scranton, Pa., for the
annual St. Ann's Novena.

Each year thousands come from all across
the country, to pray, meditate, worship,
just be quiet and still,
and wonder about life.
Blessings come forth in such
great abundance, no one goes away
without the grace of hope.

Gifts from a summer day!

More, more, birds, birds!

So in the beginning, the summer
has provided us with stunning
double impatients....

just the most beautiful daylilies!

Incredible asiatic lilies, that smell something good!
 But right in the middle of the vast producing
grapevine, mother and father robin has
decided to erect a new residence......
 to house their four little ones.........
 it's clear they are keeping their parents
very busy throughout the day!
 And yet another mother has decided
to once again lay four eggs in one nest,
on the elbow of the rain gutter........
I must do something after these
little ones fly the coop!

Hot Summer Days

It could not be a better time to be alive...
with life blooming all around,
joyous beings taking in all the world has to give.
Smell the color,
breathe in the sweetness,
open your eyes to the beauty
of all there is to this vista.

In each and every thing,
Life is better than good!
