Simple Pleasures



These are my favorite photos of "life in my garden". It was a pleasure to watch these Chickadees build their nest and care for their new family on our garden fence. Their simple rustic home is surrounded by fragrant antique roses from an old Foster homestead on Balcom Road, whose owner had propagated a few of these old-fashioned plants for sale from his dooryard. They are beautiful for just a moment in time it seems, but the pleasure of color and scent is persistent among memories that sooth---simple quiet pleasures among the din of the world out there.
