In my backyard

DSCN2939

Tree swallow at sunset and grackle on a miniature breakwater.  Several families of geese – hard to photograph because they remain tucked in with the aquatic plants.  They spend the day grazing, paddling, resting.  A chirping sparrow having dinner – who doesn’t love an ant? And catbird in the magnolia.  An abundance of beauty to capture in digital images.

Today was a day of blue skies and full sun.  We are glad to hide from the world on the weekends, although we are often thinking of the family members and friends who we cherish most.  Summer is busy and the days go past in a blur of boats on water and children running and dogs forever on the wrong side of the door.  But the ones we love – living and dead – walk with us minute by minute, if we hold them in our hearts.
