simple blessings of summer...

What a treat to have this beautiful rose of sharon by our front door to greet us as we come and go...

 bees hard at work...

the pretty little crape myrtle given to me for Mother's Day...♥


 a surprise acorn squash plant my husband found...I *do* remember throwing out some seeds earlier in the year! :-)

 fresh blackberries...so juicy when they're warm...straight from the vine to my mouth! Mmmmm....

picking some to share with a neighbor...

  beautiful weather so I can hang the clothes outside...

thankful for the shade and the gentle breeze while I hang them up!

sweet Oreo...

being camera shy...*smile*

Thank You, Lord, for all your blessings!

~Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah. -Psalm 68:19~
