So much beauty all around us. The simple creatures, the beauty of a peony (one of my favorite flowers). Thank you for sharing the joy! Blessings, Olivia

Great photos mouse. That little one in the drain gutter however needs to be careful! A screen in the downspout would prevent her from being washed down the drain! I shudder!

Your animals seem very comfortable and trusting there! The robin, the chipmunk, and of course, the beautiful human baby. What great images!

Meri said...

What a precious combination of my favorite things -- adorable little animals, birds, babies and peonies. A great joy infusion!

How did I forget the Buddha head?

I Love The Angle On the 3rd Photo (of the chipmonk) Where on Earth were you stood to take it?

Kate Hanley said...

Beautiful photos. So simple and yet grandiose in their simplicity. And I simply (no pun intended) adore the song Simple Gifts.

Fantastic photos...Bingo is sure getting big. He looks so sweet sleeping here. And that chipmunk...how the heck did you get that one?

olivia - you are welcome!

daisy - ;) no worries about little chippy - this fellow is very capable!

meri - where was your head! tee hee!

tony & karen - the chipmunk pic was taken from the second floor porch looking down on the garage roof.

kate - i was just tagged on fb in a music meme and first day was to list my favorite song - after much thought, i realized of all the songs i love, simple gifts is probably my favorite as it brings such peace when i hear it!

karen - i can't believe in just a couple weeks little bingo will be 6 months old! he is a total sweetie!

Beautiful photos, as usual! I love the chipmunk -- I've been seeing lots of those little guys scampering around here lately.

Simple gifts are the best gifts. Thanks for the smiles.

I just photographed my peonies yesterday! I have three colors but my favorites are like yours...white with that sliver of hot pink! :)
