Whole Wheat ...

is my neighbor this summer ... another beautiful sight on the Summer Prairie. The tips are called Spikelets and they help feed The World.

Stop, Look and Listen ...

Lake Pelican ... just up the road.

Something else I like about The Prairie is the wind moving through the Native Grasses. The sound is difficult to explain ... but I can tell you it's a combination of soft and loud. And the sight of the grasses, set to what one hears, is just one more of Mother Nature's precious gifts. Click on the photo ... to be certain you get it.

Smokin' Sky Watch Friday ...

I love everything about this photo of Lake Pelican. It moves ... and it moves me. I took it from my cousin Nettie's dock. I like that it appears I'm about to make a landing in a Hydro Plane.

For another sky in another world from another person's point of view and maybe even perhaps from another planet

Grand Mammie's Feeling Better ...

My two favorite Family Chicklettes ... my sister Wendy's daughter, Catherine, and my Mum.

When Wendy passed away, soooo unexpectedly, the three of us limped along for what seemed like forever ... like a car missing a wheel. It was so difficult to be together without her. It hurt ... it was awkward ... it didn't fit. And while the wheel is still missing, we are doing much better. I know that because we are laughing more.

Wendy came to me in dreams both last night and the night before. I was looking at 8 x 10 photos of the family, all living, and "Poof" she was in the next one, just beginning to make that piglet face where you push up your nose and pull down your lower eye lids. Last night I was holding a baby girl and I put a wig on her ... it was Wendy's hair style as a 2 year old ... curly, curly, curly ... and the baby turned into Wendy so I hugged and kissed her all over while she giggled.

I miss my Baby Swister ... and it still feels pretty bad. But I am getting a bit more used to not having her here in the physical sense. And the mental sense is starting to come together ... which is another level of comfort that I need.

So Grand Mammie is feeling better ... and so is the rest of the Family.

Love your Peeps. And you better kiss them while you can.

Ruby Thursday By Van Gough ...

... before he cut his ear off.

Here Comes The Sun Flower ...

I sprouted this sunflower from seed and thought it was a reject. I tossed it into one of my huge glazed planters by the front steps ... in with the Hosta, Red Hot Sally, Moss Roses and Portulaca. And there you have it. There are about 40 left to bloom along the garage. Nice reject ... blow it up ... Yowza !!!

Family Fireworks ...

We had a great 4th. The kidlets left at 2:00 this morning and are in Oklahoma City for the night. Karen and Jerry leave tomorrow. Today we are Chillsville. Ron is making breakfast. Karen is on Ron's Mac. Jerry just came back from his walk. I'm in my Muu Muu. Love from The Prairie. xoxo.

Hocus Pocus ...

When I see this photo of a photo of my Sister, it makes perfect sense to me why it's out of focus. Because I can no longer reach out and touch her. I can only reach in.

Today it's three years without Wendy ... and it's three years with myself.
