Ordinary Is More Than Just A Word

This morning I got up and shut myself in the garden room with my pets and morning coffee, and began to sift through blog entries I’ve missed with all the excitement going on around here. And this is what I found from my sweet friend Nancy who is a fantastic photographer and writer in Nova Scotia. Turn up your sound and listen and watch what she has managed to create. Share it with someone you love. It transcends mere beauty:

Ordinary Miracles Video

Was that not utterly amazing???

I have several things to tell you. One is that Scooterblu’s Whimsy is having a virtual baby shower for Heather (who I refer to as Cinderella. If you grew up in the sixties and recall the movie Cinderella with Leslie Anne Warren, you will recognize the resemblance to Heather in the right sidebar photo of her blog, Hopscotch And Hydrangeas.) So go see Rhonda about the baby shower, to be held on July 25th, in Heather’s honor. She will be having her third child, a girl. And you have to be signed up with Rhonda by the 23rd, I believe.

Other news: I have been asked to name my toad. I have christened him "Tommy The Toad."

Other news: Yes, I am fine now that I got the medication out of my system. I thank you all for your concern and kind words.

Other news: Jan at Always Growing in Louisiana left a link today to a story that will give you pause. It is about a plant pot that explodes due to the right mixture of soil, moisture and heat:

Amazing…

Alex at My Quill And Pen will be having her biopsy next Wednesday. I wrote a poem for her earlier in the week. If you will, take the time to go over and wish her luck. She also started taking ballet lessons a few months ago. Alex yearned as a child to be a ballerina. But her parents never had the money for lessons. She did have a pair of ballet slippers from a garage sale that she acquired as she "danced in her head." Until this spring when she decided now was the time to learn ballet. She also blogs about learning ballet at Dreams Do Come True. It is a wonderful journey of learning pure poetic steps.

It is Friday. We are coming along on the house. They are laying diagonal tiles right now. The walls are being painted. And soon (hopefully) I will have new bathroom renovation photos for you.

Have a wonderful weekend. Below are some photos from my gardens this morning. Someone asked me earlier this week what camera I use. I actually loved Kim’s photos so much at Daisy Cottage that I emailed her months ago to ask what camera she was using for her phenomenal photos. And so when my camera started acting up, I bought the same one she had. It is a Canon Powershot G9. I do not profess to be the photographer Kim is, but I love to photograph my gardens. And I am quite pleased with my purchase. Thanks, Kim!

In Nancy’s theme of "Ordinary Miracles", I give you mine.

  2. Wow, I love both your photos and Kim’s. I have a Canon PowerShot, too, but an older model. Maybe I just need a beginner’s photography course, and a steadier hand! The fern photo is breathtaking. Thanks for taking the time to get such great shots, they are much appreciated.
