Random Things

Yikes. I have been a bad blogger. Woefully neglecting my blog! :-(

So here, in apology, are several random things:


Wild Lilac (Ceanothus integerrimus) growing on the bank above us. It's blooming everywhere right now!

Our cat, Fred, is a total goofball, and loves to perch in the craziest places. Here he is on top of a medicine cabinet in the bathroom.


These are lovely wild iris (Iris chrysophylla) growing on our property.


And here is a doe that frequents our meadow every evening. She was camped out in the bushes by the creek this morning, and I think she might drop a fawn soon. How exciting would that be?



I am feeling the urge to write, though, honestly. I've just been too busy enjoying nature and the outdoors. I have the sequel to The Girl Who Remembered Horses to work on, that is about 80% complete, as well as a YA novel in verse that is probably 75% finished. Time to get cracking!

But wait! Is that a baby hummingbird in the pink weigela?

What have you been enjoying this spring??

Your pictures are beautiful! It's wonderful you're taking time to enjoy the life around you. You're filling the writing well! You'll have to show us a pic of the baby fawn when it arrives. :)

Happy reading and writing! from Laura Marcella @ Wavy Lines

Thanks for stopping by, Laura! I do feel like I am rejuvenating my writer's muscle, and filling up the well of creativity. All writers need to do that from time to time. And don't worry, if there is a fawn, there will be pictures! :-)

I've been enjoying going out on trail, alone, with my horse Maximus. The birds are chirping and there are tons of little brown bunnies and it's green and so gorgeous. I am so lucky to be able to get out into "nature" so close to home.

Hi Patti - yes, horses are great for allowing us to get closer to nature, and calming us at the same time. Enjoy your rides!
