A beautiful Friday. Went for a walk this evening and passed by my cousins’ old farm. They both have since passed on. Funny enough, today is Gerry’s birthday…the day after my Dad’s. He used to tease her that he would go out of his way to step on spiders on his birthday so it would rain on the Orange men’s parade (also her bday).

Here are some shots from tonight’s walk including their old barn.

On our way back, Mom noticed four birds sitting in two tall trees at the edge of the road. They were so quiet as if watching us. I was amazed they didn’t fly away when they heard us coming. We watched for a bit, I tried to get a close up photo to try and identify them but only had my phone camera with me.

We watched them fly away and I had the feeling we just had a visit from my cousins, Dad and Nanie!

Then I saw the most beautiful sight and though I’d died and gone to Heaven…

I LOVE daisies!!!!

I also love wild flowers and milkweed and thistles and meadows and running water and fields that go on.

I did manage to get a walk in, even with all the stopping to admire and photograph all the flowers!

Tonight’s painting is inspired by the wildflowers in the field:
