In need of beauty

Still reeling from the news this morning. So heartbreaking...so tragic for so many families. May these pictures bring some light and beauty into your lives, despite the gloom.

Sunflower, before the squirrel climbed up it and broke it off :-(
Lone daisy
Neighbor hens
Squirrel being squirrelly...

Last of the frilly yellow day lilies...


Squirrel feeding on the corn I put out for it
Cracks me up, every time!
As do the neighbor hens
Rain!
Tomatoes!
A field of sunflowers nearby :-)
Last of the double orange day lilies
Pretty boy goldfinch

Peace be with you...

Of course I love this post - but I hadn't even seen the last picture. I love that the finch is sitting on "my" hanging basket :)

Much love, dear heart. I should crochet a sweater for it so it doesn't get bruised so easily.

peace to you ...so sorry to hear that what should have been a fun outing was taken over .

Squirrels being squirrely and flowers blooming certainly takes the edge of a very violent week here and there. Thank you Michael. I love your kind heart, dear friend.

Very nice! That squirrel looks like he has some "pointer" in him. :)
