Add more of it to your day

Annabelle hydrangea


A friend recently wrote about the things that inspire her each day, adding, find that....
then do more of it.

Spending about 20 minutes walking among my flowers and berry bushes with my camera and Helios lens today, ended up making me very happy and renewing inspiration again.  Annabelle burst forth yesterday in the rain, the best she's looked since I got her 3 years ago.  The rain was weighing down a few clusters so I cut them to bring inside to enjoy.

Rain has been gently falling and the earth is happily soaking it up.

So many, even the robins can't eat them all before they over ripen

Framing


Framing photos on a page visually helps me compose a few days of sightseeing into a storyboard format, which highlights the best shots, like-colors, or those with the most memories.  I'm also drawn to moodboards for the same reason.





Just for fun

Have a fantastic summer week!

It's a rose week

Golden Celebration and Lady Emma Hamilton have given their best flower flush this week.  Lots of making pictures happened, and then some digital art play.  I would love to share their fragrance with you.

Rock-Cola Café

A local "oldies" cafe's in our neighborhood is the Rock-Cola Café http://www.rockcolacafe.com, where our lunch outing was today.

Here's a little tour.













The grilled tenderloin is so large, we had lunch with enough left over for dinner for two tonight.
They also have and serve the original recipe for Choc-Ola.
