9. I’m thankful for the visual world. I am made breathless every day by something I see. It seems everywhere I look there’s beauty and magnificence. It constantly amazes, enlightens, and nourishes my soul. Leaves blowing from trees, blue sky, rain drops falling just so, structures made by man, light in all it’s forms. Everything has history and a story to tell. All of it inspires awe and is magical.
These are photos I used on my blog between 2005 and 2007. I blogged with Blogger for that time… until I switched to WordPress, where I’ve stayed. I was just perusing these and enjoying them. Thought I’d share. Some of these were before I had the Canon Rebel even. We were using point and shoot little digital cameras then. Plus there are photos of Weston when we first got him… what a cutie. Enjoy….
Today we are hanging out at home. It’s nice… watching movies (currently Men in Black), staying cool, etc. Karen went to get plants for some of our flower pots earlier today (after watering the flower beds and finding the rubber boa) and Kev went to get stain applicators (they are going to stain the front deck later today). Now Karen is talking to Mary and Martin via Skype (I went in to say hello for a few minutes… it’s hot in the office so I didn’t stay too long, though it was great to see them… and great to see the pregnant belly where Jackson is hanging out). Not much going on here today… just really nice enjoying being home. Appreciating it. Loving it.
Mary and Martin decided on not having too many flowers at the wedding, but the flowers they had… bouquets, boutonnieres, and the two large floral arrangements up near the “alter” were stunningly beautiful. Simple and lovely.
Dahlia In Waiting

There was a lovely dahlia garden next to the conservatory. Karen and I took a ton of shots there. Amazing color. Really beautiful.
After loading I took a wander around the property with my camera. There’s always something to take pictures of there. Just so happens the wildflowers are blooming. It’s so lovely right now. Their whole place is actually. They are really turning it into quite the show place. Better Homes and Gardens is going to show up any minute.

My apologies for not playing the last several weeks. Summer will do that to a person. Seems we were busy busy busy. Especially since getting our new little girl. Scroll down for some candid shots of her. She’s beautiful.
