This is MY home!

Columbia, MO

 This is my home,
So please just travel on thru
I plan to set up house here
And raise my babies blue

Do hope you find as nice a place
(Tho I don't think you will)
So if yours is not as good a home
Come back - visit me (from afar) - get your fill!


expect bird wonderfulness!

Sunday Serenity

Cody-dog checking to see if my dad and my bestest since child-hood friend (Bobbi) have fed the catfish properly.
Of course, Cody's judgement entirely depends on the number of treats she gets. Smart dog!

When do friends become family
and family becomes friends?
When life is at its very best!


xoabb's all good!

A very wonderful Mother's Day to the best mom ever - my mom!

Weeping Crab (in more ways than one) :(

Weeping Crab by annbumbly
Weeping Crabapple Tree
"A tribute to a glorious tree that I'm sure is going to be torn down as its house has been torn down and the fence is in disrepair. The tree has been a welcome beauty spot for many many will be missed!"

This lovely tree graced the yard directly across from the school where I work. The houses on the opposite side of the road are all on very small, but very expensive plots of land as they are in Westport and on the Saugatuck river. I went to work one morning about two weeks, and by the time I drove home seven hours later, the house was gone! This wonderful tree remained until the end of last week when, once again, it was there in all its glory when I came to work in the morning, and then, seven hours later was gone. I do believe this Spring was its most glorious bloom ever! It surely went out in a blaze of glory!

Progress will destroy beauty at times...ignore the orange cone, please. That's not at all beautiful!


expect unhappy events at times...

White Lilacs

Nothing more lovely
Than the smell of sweet lilacs
Wafting through spring air


expect beauty!
