Just a small town gal and that is all I'll ever be,
where life is just another iced sweet tea away,
where you can see the twinkling stars at night,
the wonders of the moon,
and puffy white clouds floating across the blue sky.
Welcome to my blog from the heartland, full of random musings, observations, reflections, things I love, events in my life, humor..

"Bringing life to the yard each day
Hummingbirds  are amazing little beauties
Hovering, flying backwards, sideways, diving and swooping back up
Finally sitting for a  peaceful respite as if knowing that I'm trying to take your picture..
For a moment no more flight finesse for a spot at the feeder...

Childhood memories... Lazy, hazy days of summer at grandparents...lying on a hammock gently swaying between the elm trees... Watching cotton candy clouds floating by......bright blue skies.....a light Kansas breeze...mason jar of sweet iced tea.....cicadas singing a lullaby... Drifting off into a dreamy summer nap ......~ 'Home is where the heart...

"Strawberry Moon in the night sky shining brightly through the branches of the old sycamore tree is magic for the heart"~
Summer Solstice.....last night ....sun at highest point of the year.....moon at its lowest....longest day of the year...Strawberry Moon named by the Algonquin tribes because it occurs at height of the season when strawberries are harvested...moon not reddish in color, more of a hone...

Eventide....blue sky peeking beneath storm clouds in the east......yellow sky to the west.....rainbows and raindrops..... golden glow across the wheat field......rain, storm clouds, sunset show off their colors in the moments before night skies begin....serenity..from 'Home is where the heart is'

Listening to the gentle breezes in the young wheat field, ebbing, flowing, in a green sea of waves....double arched rainbow bridge over the Caney River in the distance ....squirrels play and chatter in the tree tops...birds chirping their tunes....butterflies ballet dance in the air.....bees buzzing in a patch of white, pink tipped clover flowers ... wa

Hello Spring.... life in full bloom, redbud trees, tulips and daffodils, cherry blossoms....birds singing,....hummingbirds flitting to and fro.... green lush grass......ponds full of life--frogs croaking--fish creating ripples--turtles sunning on logs...smell of newly turned soil for gardens and crops ...air smells sweeter...rainbows....senses overwhelmed....a season for a rebirth .......
