Patio Ponderings

Plant in yard with yellow flowering blooming around it

The sun envelopes

Bees, birds and squirrels visit

Lazy summer day

Breeze carries children’s laughter

And sounds of the ice cream truck




A born and raised Midwesterner who traveled to Oregon in 2006 via the Oregon Trail route, fell in love with Oregon and now call it home. I am retired and pursuing my life long dream of becoming a Freelance Inspirational Writer.

    1. Thanks Diane. Yes, I do enjoy spending time sitting on my patio in my backyard enjoying nature and the sounds of summer. ๐Ÿ˜Š I am trying to enjoy each of these summer days as they are going by so fast!

      1. I can’t believe how fast they are going! I haven’t had a real outing yet this summer. I miss what had become my annual vacation to Lion’s Head on the Georgian Bay, but couldn’t make it work this year.
