Outdoors beckonings


'Peace' in the Hindi language, spoken in India

The outdoors is beckoning me.
Here are some of my dreams -

A beautiful garden oasis in my back yard...

Painted Rock art

Longwood Gardens, PA I think

with lots and lots of flowers.....

a pattern re-worked for scherensnitte by inkspired

Monet, 1872

I might even find a few fairies...

I would love to have hummingbirds among my guests...

but of course all birds and animals will be welcome...

as long as they are well behaved!

a sweet kitty waiting for his forever home
Cat Care Society, Lakewood, CO

But, as happens to many dreams,
my chores are getting louder in their demands for attention,
not least of this is a big 163 lb. Great Dane who is 'reminding' me
It's Dinner Time!

so, until another day....
