I know you all think that I spoil Jengibre. But these goggles keep out the suns rays just like my sunglasses do for me and as we both walk in the same sunlight everyday ... I had to have a pair for her! RIGHT! She looks soooo cool! And I have to keep telling her that too, because she keeps trying to lose them along the way! Mindi told me about a leather Harley hat she saw at the Harley dealers so I got her one of those too, but we are still working that one out, ha, ha! LATER!
A Trumpet vine meandering across the back of someone's fence. I have tried and tried to get a good shot of this vine but no luck. I don't know if it is the lighting at the time of morning that I take it or just poor focus on my part. I have been using a close up mode. I might try landscape or portrait next.

I saw this white cat in a new housing development beside Periwinkle park. This is the second picture I took of him, the first he was just sitting looking through the weeds at me but then he decided he wasn't too sure he wanted to stick around for any more photos and so that gave me this shot that was much better than the first. He looks a little like my MyKai except MyKia has red tips on his face, ears and tail.

It was foggy yesterday when we took our walk. And I thought this grape vine looked rather mystic in the fog. I added a few grapes to give the picture even more interest.

This is a photo of my neighbor Norico's flower beds. They are really beautiful Norico! I didn't plant any Zinnias this year in my garden. But after seeing how lovely yours are, I will definitely plant some next year.

When Jengibre and I took our walk today, we met a little boy named Adam and he let Jengibre ride in his battery powered Jet.

Heritage- David Austin Old English rose. All David Austin roses have a sweet scent and have the old garden rose look to them and they are a repeat blooming rose.

I love it when I can take a photo that looks more like a work of art than a photo. This one almost doesn't look real, but it is.

Just your garden variety petunia but this petunia seems to almost twinkle when you look at it, I don't know if it is the pin wheel markings or the lighting, but I love this photo.
I took care of a neighbors garden while they were away for a few days during the hottest days of the summer this year. And she gave me a 6 pack of these cosmos. They are really lovely. Thank you Jean!

This little bunny was homeless until another animal lover like you and me, took him into their home and heart.
These are a few more of my friends birds. She also has Love Birds and a couple other breeds I am not familiar with.
They are all so loving and tame, I like to go and visit, just for the FUN of it all! Her love for them shows in the obvious love they have for her.

I find this a place to sit and think and just relax. I have made it my own secret garden. Until now as I share it with you! I hope that you will take a few minutes and take the journey.

One of my favorite roses in the garden. It is called Legend and has huge blossoms. When it is in full bloom it is a sight to see!

I took this picture of my neighbor, Noricos garden. Then I took the photo that I had taken to my Photo Explosion Deluxe picture program and made it into a Dream Ball!
