“To photograph is to hold one’s breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It’s at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
~Henri Cartier-Bresson

Sweetpeas and grandsons

Planted some sweet peas and turned over the compost pile: Wonderful stuff at the bottom of the bin. Dug the compost into the garden soil and planted the seeds. I expect gobs of prize winning sweet peas soon. They are one of the easiest joys of life.

I'm going to see my darling ,little, human sweet peas (the grandbabies) for a couple of days. These two little boys take lots of care; which their mommy and daddy do really well. No one tells you what hard work it is to raise children and do it right..... and not collapse from exhaustion. The boys are 3yr's. and 15 mo's. Mommy and Daddy both have demanding jobs. We have so much admiration for these two wonderful people. They are the keepers of our next generation, and they do it so well. See you all on Thursday.
