counting my blessings

for joplin

These shots were taken last weekend at my friend's house. It was a beautiful day in the country. Lots of good food, sunshine, friends, and laughter. The calm before the storm. Sunday night a devastating tornado hit a small town less than an hour away from where I live. Tornados have been all aound us this week. Lots of sleepless nights with strong wind and thunder that shook the whole house. I'm so thankful for all my blessings. A warm bed with my husband next to me and my cats piled in with us. After this week I'm sure looking forward to the sunny holiday weekend, but my heart still aches for those that lost family and pets in the storms.

a fairy and the daisies

The daisy is my all time favorite wildflower. Every year I look forward to seeing them
popping up on roadsides and in fields.
I like lying back in the grass and photographing them against the sky.
This week was a good one for pictures.
A misty field of wildflowers after a spring storm and
Lula, my lil' forest fairy friend turned one year old.
Lula Mae!

my afternoon

My afternoon was spent potting plants and playing with my cats.
Not too bad.
