How blessed am I? by this friendship that started out at a thrift store and a desired set up with her brother, which turned into lingering, soulful coffee house chats and one stunning new adoption into the Father's family.

Oh and, did I mention, this fuchsia lovely fluttering by at the BBQ? I've never seen a fuchsia breasted hummingbird, have you? I tried and tried to get her to hold still but dear little thing fluttered away as I got to close, I suppose as all beauty tends to do when vulnerable.
Yea, my friend Karyn has a pretty fab little garden going on in her backyard. Oh, to be patient enough to garden. One day...
