A Few Random Shots

Here are a few random shots,taken over the last few weeks.

This Eastern Blue bird and his mate gave me many chances for pictures.
Today I am just showing one shot,but there will be more coming in the future.


Milkweed is in full bloom.I have seen a few Monarch Butterflies around,but have not found any eggs or Caterpillars,yet.


Daisies are so simple,yet so pretty.
This pair was blooming in my garden.
Unfortunately with all the heat we have had the flowers are fast fading away.


A little over  a week ago,Steve called to say that he and Kai were flying kites.
What's a Grandma to do,but hurry up there to be part of the action.
These kites are far more elaborate than any I had as a child.


I think the one above was bought more for Daddy and this one is definitely a little girls kite.It has all the right colours,pink and purple,and it is a butterfly.

I don't know about other little girls,but my Granddaughter has to have pink and purple and lots of pretties.She is definitely a little princess.
Speaking of my princess,here she is ready to be a flower girl at a wedding.


Thought for Today:
Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise.
Psalm 145:3

Ruth, Kai is growing into a beautiful young girl. What a beauty! I love your other shots, the bluebirds always thrill me, and the kits are so pretty. Your other flowers are so detailed and clear. Hope you've had a good Sunday. Diane

What wonderful kites not like the old paper ones I flew as a kid! They never lasted long but were so much fun.

Hi Ruth, Kai is just gorgeous --and she really is a Princess.

I don't remember seeing fancy kites like that before. Wow!!!

Kai is truly a beautiful princess. I like your photo of the bluebird and look forward to seeing more. I agree that kites have certainly changed since I was a boy.

Your beautiful little granddaughter looks lovely in her flower girl dress., Yes, both of my little granddaughters love 'pink'. I haven't seen a bluebird all summer and haven't found any monarchs in any milkweed patches yet.The kites look like such fun!

ChrisJ said...

I must go and hunt for bluebirds. I've only ever seen one once. They frequent a nearby park and I will have to persuade Moth to go with me when he comes back. The butterfly kite is gorgeous, as is your granddaughter of course!

Arija said...

Any post with Kai in it is a super post. She is still the cutest and the butterfly kite is just perfect for her, as is the bluebird for me.

Sandra said...

those are really fancy kites, you are so right, nothing like the ones from my childhood and i bet the cost of them would scare me. my kites were a dollar or less. she is beautiful. i love daisy's and that purple in your header makes me feel good when i look at it. i love purple and red, my two favorite colors

Janice K said...

What a beautiful granddaughter! She must bring you so much joy.

I love those kites. That looks like so much fun.

And I am anxious to see more of those bluebirds.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

Bluebirds are a fairly rare sight in our area, so it's always a treat to get to see one. Your photo is wonderful. The flower images are also beautiful. I especially love the daisies. Kai is lovely, of course. And the kites were like none I've ever seen before.

Anita Johnson said...

We have plenty of milkweed, but no caterpillars either. I wounder if the cold spring had anything to do with it?

Kerri Farley said...

What a beautiful little lady!! And i LOVE the butterfly kite :)

Lovely Grand daughter you have there.

Your photography is lovely. I have never seen Milkweed, having "Weed" in the name, is it a weed? Somthing that lovely I would not mind having that weed in my yard.

Kites are more elaborate than I remember playing with too. As for monarchs, I have a only seen one or two so far this year.

Hilary said...

What a lovely series of photos.. each one beautiful on its own but refreshingly colourful in this grouping. That child has such a fresh, sweet face.

love Psalms, your granddaughter, kites, flowers especially the daisies, my favorite, because they always seem to last in a vase so much longer than other flowers!
