I’ve always loved sunflowers but never grown my own. Hard to believe that here I am in my fifties and this is my first year to add sunflowers in the garden – how did that happen?!! What’s that saying “Better late than never”…
Regardless, I am thoroughly enjoying my sunflower summer🌻🌻🌻
The Forsythia bush outside my front door has decided that spring may have come and gone but it has not forgotten how to bloom! We’ve had one or two really cold days here and obviously not enough yet to deter its desire for Spring! Oh I wish…

Belonging and Achievement
Scanning through my photo catalog for a good interpretation of “Belonging” (the theme for Where’s My Backpack), I settled on this portrait of my collegiate son. We recently had some fun doing a photo shoot of just him playing guitar on our deck. I chose this photo because it represents the sense of belonging that playing guitar has given him over the years.
What a fun and inspiring challenge this week at The Daily Post! The challenge from guest host Pete Rosos is to “imagine the cover of a favorite book, music album, or magazine.” I really like the story-telling emphasis of this week’s Cover Art challenge, so much so that I have two posts this week. Part two is here.
I think this first image would make a good cover for an album, preferably a foot-tapping mix of acoustic rock and bluegrass. The photo brings to mind a laid-back summer day when you just want to kick off your boots and enjoy life!
Cover Art – kick off our boots!
The health of the eye seems to demand a horizon. We are never tired, so long as we can see far enough. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
The theme for this week at Where’s My Backpack is “Horizon.” This theme gave me the perfect excuse to go back through my archive. I chose some of my favorite horizon images, mostly from previous family summer vacations. Hope you enjoy!
