Just Outside My Door

Oh how I wish I could have each of you come for a visit to my house.
We could sit and share our hearts,while enjoying the beauty of God's creation.

Your eyes might be drawn to the pink Geraniums which have bloomed non-stop from spring till today and are still loaded with buds.


Perhaps the soft yellows of the Wax Begonia would catch your attention. This is another plant that has been literally covered with blooms from spring on. It has so many of these small flowers that one can hardly see any leaves.


As we sit and chat,we are joined by a small visitor.The Black-capped Chickadee comes for a small seed,offered in the tray standing on the deck railing.


It's a warm sunny day,so a Dragonfly lands momentarily on a table leg.


The Chickadee has returned for yet another seed. He seems to be checking us out with a sideways look.


I hope you enjoyed your virtual visit at my house and please do come again.
I love sharing my humble home with my friends both near and far.


Closing Thought:
Friendship,like a garden in season,nourishes those who share in it's bounty.

  6. The little chickadees are so nice. I love to watch them. You took some neat pictures of them and the dragonfly. Usually when I see something like that, I don't have my camera with me. Your blooms are beautiful. Thanks for sharing.

  8. And soon our enjoyment of outdoor flowers will come to an end & there will be the fall beauty to capture. I believe that if you enjoy photography, there is always beauty to be found to capture, not matter what the season.

  15. Ruth, I enjoyed my visit with you. I, too, have beautiful begonias that have bloomed since June - a yellow and a red. I have them in pots on my shady front porch. That little chickadee was thankful for the feast you set out.

  20. So many stunning shots here, Ruth. I love both the geranium and the begonia, the last shot of the chickadee, and, of course, the dragonfly. I used my little dragonfly ID book to try to identify your dragonfly. I think it might be a Variable Darner. It sort of looks as if it has suffered an injury to its abdomen at about the 7th or 8th segment. You got a very nice shot of it. I don't believe I've ever seen one before.

  26. How nice that you don't have to go very far to see so much beauty! I think you are taking much better care of your gerannium than I am taking of mine. That reminds me, I should give it a drink of water. ;)
