Whispy white streamers

Floating like feathers

Fair weather morning

Sights and Sounds of Freedom

Fireworks

Freedom

Hearing its sound

Seeing it in the sky

Red white and blue rules the night

Tonight my neighborhood is abounding with fireworks, it seems everyone around me has some kind of noisemakers going off and lighting up the sky.

I think it’s more abundant this year because all our big fireworks shows were cancelled because of Covid, so more people bought their own to shoot off at home.

I enjoy it all to a point, as I am all for celebrating the freedoms we have and am very grateful for them, but when it goes on and on until all hours of the night then I have to say enough is enough and it’s getting quite close to the midnight hour right now, so I am about to say “Enough!” 😊

A spring in my step

On pink and white pathways

Cherry blossom time

My daughter’s cherry tree was in full bloom today! So pretty! So uplifting to see!
