A Cloudy Rainy Spell

The past few weeks have seen many clouds
and rainy days.
On Friday, June 19th, we took a ride about
8 pm. and saw something amazing out at sea.

This is the edge of a fog bank rolling in...
it looked very mysterious as it slid across the ocean.

On Saturday, June 20th, the clouds
are still with us as a
glimpse of the Pineapple Ketch
sailing caught my eye.

By evening, the fog had rolled in once again
as folks fished at the jetty....

Am so happy the lilacs are still blooming ...
their fragrance lingers as Brody enjoys
the sunshine streaming through the porch door.

Evening Stroll

We walked along Ocean Avenue tonight.
Saw the first beach rose of the season.

The sunset was serene....

the elm tree is so majestic...

and the sky, dreamy...

Another Sunset...

At the end of the day, the clouds were thick
and to our surprise there was a tiny break
in the clouds near the horizon with room
enough to allow the sun to peak through and
create a glorious sunset.

A Sunset Walk on the Beach

The sunset tonight was so beautiful, delicate
colors filled the sky and reflected in the sea.
I felt as though I was in a watercolor!

Dandelions Along the Rocky Coast

A flash of yellow caught my eye on the
rocky beach...

Amazing to see dandelions growing right out
of the rocks.

Rainy Days

We are having a bit of a rainy spell here
in Maine.
The spring garden is thriving and gives me
great pleasure to see

new plants unfold...

critters scurrying about...

lovely birds searching for sustenance...

and in between the
raindrops, a walk on the beach under a canopy
of clouds.

Around the Bend

This is the scene on our way to town to check
the mail at the Post Office.
Ducks and occasionally a loon or heron can be
spotted in the cove. I always look forward to
seeing who may be there.
Do you have a favorite spot for viewing wildlife?

Missing Maine

I love the connection I feel with nature and
the sea, the birds and wildlife that visit our
yard, my kitties and the inner peace I feel
when at home in Maine.
Being away from home for several weeks,
I find myself yearning for Maine.
My husband, who is home with the kitties,
e-mailed a photo
of the tree outside
my studio/gallery window this morning.
It gives me a sense of serentiy!
What do you miss when you are away from
