Another Gorgeous Day!

 
Worked at the paper in the morning, and then out doing cases this afternoon. I could whine that I didn't have time to do one single thing in my flower beds, but why bother? Look what I got to see instead!

This is 3 1/2 Mile Road. It seems to be growing a collection of new summer homes, but so far has retained its character.

I was hoping to bring you some beauty in ordinary things, but most of those photos didn't have good focus. I did manage to get the sun through a new beech leaf.

How about a close-up of a wood anemone blossom?

While I was focused right there a fly came and settled right in the flower! I'm no entomologist. I have a request in to Bugguide.net to learn what kind it is.

My favorite picture of the day, despite the stupid wires, is this late afternoon light on the roadside trees. I turned around and went back to get this picture.

Back to work in the morning, but it's no hard task at all to find beautiful things in plain sight!
