Echoes of my Neighborhood

Well, it’s almost Thursday. I’ll post a link to our hostess Jacqueline’s blog once she posts her echoes. I was just really excited about this one. Been working on it all week.

This week I set my little phone camera into macro mode for a micro view of my bloomin’ front yard. I am sure my faerie had something to do with it (The one who tossed herself under the birdbath and busted her head to free herself from life as a yard ornament? But that’s another story…a limerick to be exact. You can read about her HERE!)

Wow! When I digress, I really digress! Back to my micro garden. Mmmm…come to think of it, if I were a faerie…it might look something like this!

And there are also a few critters who came out for the photo shoot. A caterpillar and a baby mantis. Very good fortune indeed!

Have a great week! 🌸

Echoes of my Neighborhood

This odd little place is in my neighborhood just a few blocks from my house.. I wrote about the St. Therese statue earlier this week Here are a few more  photos…


This photo montage is in response to Jacqueline’s (a cooking pot and twisted tales) call for echoes of our neighborhoods.

So…I don’t get out much! I know, I know, I admit I work too much. When I finally did manage an outing this past weekend we had a mini blizzard! So I am afraid the lovely downtown farmer’s market photos I had planned didn’t happen. In fact, the farmers barely showed up! There were a few brave souls but even fewer customers.

Not to worry, in my attempt to escape the elements I happened upon a new shop of metaphysical trinkets and curiosities! And I found a new inside toy! A sand photo box! I can watch these for hours, and have, since I brought it home!

So, I am moving it inside this week, into a dreamy corner of my nest to “listen” to floating drifts of sand, streams of tan and brown with a flash of gold. They have quite a lot to say! Have a wonderful Thursday!

Echoes of my Neighborhood

Happy Thursday! Last week I shared the beginning buds of greenery in my neighborhood. This week I am sharing some of the first blooms in my humble garden. I do not have a green thumb, so any flowers that do manage to show up are miracles to me. Aside from the flowering weeds that I love until they overtake my lawn, I am fortunate to be blessed by a few more cultivated friends, perennials who visit me every year around this time. And so without further adieu, I give you this week’s installment…First Blooms!


Creeping Phlox


First few Roses of the season, dew still clinging to the leaves!


…And the other one that found hidden in the back of the bush. I wish I had smell-o-vision so you could enjoy not only their beauty in appearance but their wonderful fragrance as well! 🙂

Happy Thursday! Yet another installment of Echoes of my Neighborhood, a challenge hosted by Jacqueline at “a cooking pot and twisted tales”. To see other “Echoes” click HERE !

Here in the Mid-Atlantic States in the USA, Spring is in full swing! Just ask any of us who suffer from seasonal allergies. There is a pale coating of pollen on every surface, and trees are on the brink of bursting!

In a week or so, I will wake up one morning and the braches will be fully dressed in bright green leaves!  It’s always a mystery to me when that happens. It’s like a Spring Miracle!

This week I took photos of those trees as they are just beginning to bud. I call the photo montage here…”On the Brink”.

In fact, we are all, at any given time “on the brink” of a miracle. (They happen every day you know!)  What are the signs of an impending miracle where you live? Get ready. You could be blessed any day now! Like these trees you too are on the brink!
