Cherish is my favorite word, and I cherish the ability of turning the routine into a beautiful moment.
Nature creates in me, a spiritual and meditative time to bring peace, harmony and balance, into an otherwise ordinary day~

Finding Myself Coming and Going...Are You Too~


Not my entrance gate, but oh how I love it, the smaller gate, the mailbox, all of it.  I was riding with my daughter who was visiting from Florida and we happened on this beautiful home and snapped just what we could see from the lane.  We used our imaginations as to what was on the other side.

A fountain and copper sculptured flowers adorned a lawn down the lane a bit, all so pretty~



I have been busy watching the grands over the Summer a few days a week.  One of the days that I had Maci, my next door neighbor allowed us to trek along with her at a nearby horse farm.  She took Maci on a ride with her and it was love at first sight~




My favorite horse is a Friesian and the farm had a huge gelding...his name is simply B.  He is such a large horse at the age of only 7 and already has Arthritis so bad, and he can no longer be ridden, yet he is greatly loved~



Another day the family all went to a water and fun park.  They enjoyed the rides and also the large wave pool~




American Crows~



Pileated Woodpecker~






Red-tailed Hawk~




Turkey Vultures~






White-tailed Deer have been slowly presenting their fawns to us.  Some were taken by the Foxes, but it turns out we are going to hopefully have a nice few additions, including the possibility of two sets of twins and two sets of triplets as well as a couple of singles.  More coming soon~


Maci enjoys taking the food down to give to the Deer with me~







This is a Doe that is affectionately called Star and her young fawn.  Some think she has twins, but I have only seen her with this one so far.  
Below her are a set of triplets.  There may be two sets of them, just not sure yet~



Triplets~





On one of the Zoo visits we happened to stop by the Seals when they were swimming really close to us and without the interference of glass.  I got some of my best shots ever and was quite pleased with them~













Two of the Grizzly Bears were having a water tussle which was quite entertaining as well.  The youngest one is on the left in the image shares~





This is the newest Lion on exhibit at the Louisville Zoo.  He is a 3 year old and so far the female does not like him...at all.  He's pretty stunning~
