Back from the mountain....


This lovely photo was taken by a very dear friend of mine in England.  Sally and I have been friends for years and she is very kindly letting me put it on my blog.  Wouldn't you just love to walk down that canopy of trees?   It's a gorgeous photo Sally, thank you for sending it to me and letting me share it for everyone to see.

Gregg and I have been away for a while.  Gregg's sister's youngest son had his graduation ceremony this weekend.  His mum rented a house within the Massanutten Resort  area, not too far away from Harrisonburg, Virginia.  We were with several family members and a dear friend.  I'll tell you more later but we have another busy time coming up again.

I haven't been able to get around to your blogs to visit but things will get back to normal next week.  I do thank you for all the wonderful comments you left while I was away.  We had a wonderful time and I hardly got on the computer - gasp!

Oh well, back to reality.  The laundry is calling me, the place needs a good tidying up and if I don't get cracking, people will be coughing on the dust!   Yes I have my own wildlife inside this house,  I think somebody called them 'dust-bunnies'.  They are very shy creatures and like to hide in places I can't get to easily.

Denise, I know how that goes! I hope you captured all those dust bunnies. Lovely picture on this post and in your current header! as for the chimney swifts, here is the response I left on my blog in case you don't get back over to see it:

Denise, chimney swifts are all over. I wouldn't be surprised if you have them down where you are! they need old chimneys to nest in. You often see them and hear them in the evening as they go out to hunt but I actually see them quite often during the day. They are often described as looking like flying cigars and they were a species of concern for eBird a few years ago. I do not know if that is still true. I often hear them before I see them as they make a sweet twittering sound as they fly overhead. Then I know to look up!

I love the tunnel of trees. It looks like the entry to a fairy tale!

Marie said...

It's a magical photo! I expect to see Titania coming out of the shadows to stand in the light! Love it!

Glad you had a wonderful trip....I know you will enjoy the one upcoming! Can't wait to see the photos! Have a great Mother's Day!

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Happy Mother's Day, Denise. Glad you had a nice road trip for the graduation. We have a wedding at the end of this month and so another road trip as well...PA and NJ this time. Ah yes, dust bunnies are the only "pets" in our house as well.

Denise said...

Thank you all for visiting. Slowly getting caught up around here. Hope you all have a great week.

Susan said...

That is such a beautiful photo and, yes, I'd love to walk through that canopy of trees... further on and beyond!
Cheers, Susan :D)
