I, Dragonfly

“It’s not the mountain we conquer but ourselves.” ~ Sir Edmund Hillary ~

I had my annual recheck for Cushing’s Disease today.  I don’t dwell on it, but it is a relief to know I’m okay.  At least if it comes again I will get it taken care of right away instead of being misdiagnosed for nine years.  :^(  I guess it was a case of better late than never.  The dragonflies will keep me smiling.  Always.  My symbol of new beginnings.

Here Comes the Sun

“Good Day Sunshine”

“Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations.  I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow them.” ~ Louisa May Alcott ~

Froglets

“Cease to inquire what the future has in store, and to take as a gift whatever the day brings forth.” ~ Horace ~ carpe diem

Not Today

Letting go of the past?

Someday I will get there.

What does it take to believe in the future?

I will listen to dragonfly whispers.

Will there be a new beginning at last?

The Fog

“We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars.” ~Oscar Wilde~ (and The Pretenders)

It is so hot and humid that when I take my camera outside the lens fogs.  I was so glad to see the hummingbird moth that I forgot to check it before I took a picture.  It usually only visits the bee balm when I don’t have my camera with me. :^(   So this would have been a good picture with the moth and the bumble bee, but it’s foggy.  I think it has it’s own unique appeal though.  What do you think?

I did get a better picture when I cleaned the lens with my shirt.  (I be all of you real photographers are cringing right now.)

Of course the dragonflies are busy with the mosquitoes in my garden.  Thank you dragonflies!

Spiderwort

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; but remember that what you now have was once among the things only hoped for.”  ~ Epicurus ~

I love spiderwort.  I would like it for the name even if it wasn’t beautiful.

I also included a picture of tadpoles.  I have lots of them right now and they always make me smile.  I hope it works for you too. spiderwort 005signedspiderwort 009signed
