Nearing the end of another hot, dry, summer day, with temperatures soaring and no rain in sight, skies otherworldly, milky and dim from the forest fires north in British Columbia,
all is well in the backyard, where I turn on the stream
and the chickadees come down to drink and splash and enjoy
and are refreshed.
And patches of blue ..
Enjoy them while you can for they are fleeting….
Brought to you by springtime in the Pacific Northwest.
Just before sunset tonight I took a brisk walk in the neighborhood and was reminded again of how much beauty there is in the ordinary everywhere. I love to travel but if I wasn’t able to I’d be happy knowing that all of this exists outside my door. Just give me the sky, clouds, trees and sunset and it is enough.
