Daisies. My mom’s favorite flowers. Celebrating her milestone birthday from afar today. Thankful for the wonderful times we have together
Mist rises off the lake. Great blue herons, startled by my paddling, alight and fly low across the the water. Gulls circle noisily, lit by dawn’s first rays. Serenity found.

How my brain feels as the coffee starts to kick in....
Greet the new day

Amidst the mists....
I’m back in Michigan, but lots of photos to share from Central New York yet. Such a stunningly beautiful region
Freshly mown field on a foggy morn
Eastern tiger swallowtail butterflies were flitting across the road. I pulled over, hoping to capture one. On a dirt road, there were 3 pods of swallowtails mating on the ground. More than 100 swallowtails total- pure magic!
Fog lifting in Central New York
I run my fingers through lavender blossoms, the scent taking me back decades to Provence in France.
Got my feet on the ground and my head in the clouds....
