Kids in the summer...

... want to play video games all day!  Well at least my kids do!  But once I can get them outside they are likely to be out for hours with neighborhood friends, riding bikes, digging (Sorry! not anymore, the dirt pile's closed), or looking for worms and slugs to feed the chickies.

Ethan's cactus is 3 years old now.  Isn't that bloom amazing?  And the photo ...  by Ethan, age 10!

Aeryn's daisy.  This flower is quite a diva - hugely dramatic wilting, bring on the water, and then it perks right up.   Kind of like Aeryn sometimes, being one of the few girls in the neighborhood is not so easy.

Go play!


  1. Hi Deborah
    I'm a Flock member and on a break from work decided to explore some Flock blogs.
    You do some beautiful work!
    Flowering cactuses are amazing, our San Pedro flowered for the first time last year. Ethan certainly captured it well.
    Also wanted to tell you how much I admire you doing self portraits. I'm just not brave enough!
