Faithful Friend

❤️ I am thankful for all my friends, each and every one, but among those friends there is one who has been with me through thick and thin, the best of times and the worst of times. If we don’t talk for months it doesn’t matter because I know I could call her at the spur of the moment and she would listen to me — and she would support me. She holds a special place in my heart. Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary of thirty-something years and for thirty-something years I don’t believe this friend has failed once to send a card. I never expect it from her, yet she does it, and when we receive the card and open it, I remember, ah yes, this is my friend that never forgets. Here’s to having faithful friends! ❤️

Garden Buddy

The zinnia seeds I planted this spring have rewarded me with some colorful blooms. Each morning this week I have been making my way to the garden with my camera, hoping to catch the blooms at their best in the early morning light; and each day I have been greeted by a little insect which I have identified as a katydid nymph. He seems to know I am photographing him since even when I get a little too close and shake the stem of the flower he continues to hang on. When the blooms have faded and I no longer see my garden buddy each morning, I trust he will be out in the garden as a full-fledged katydid and I will be listening for him in the evening!
