Long Island

I spent the weekend with a great friend and her family on Long Island. I loved being surrounded by trees, animals, birds, bees, and wildlife. There's a part of me that doesn't feel alive unless I can see green.

These were some lotus flowers on their koi pond:


I loved the sharp shadows and the intense sun. There's something about sun on an island - it just doesn't shine the same way, anywhere else...

I was far too amused at how well the color of this flower matched my shoes:

Clumsy bees flew drunkenly from flower to flower, already laden with pollen, yet still wanting more:

Wild raspberries grew in the garden:

Horses stood silently, on the other side of the fence:

And, the sunsets.

I was grateful for every second of summer laziness:

Hope your holiday weekend was every bit as gorgeous.
