Surrounded by beauty

"Beauty is everywhere, waiting
for eyes to gaze on it."
(Author unknown)

Deer, a rainbow, and a beautiful sunset, all viewed one July evening from a friend's porch in Middleburg.


"All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful:
The Lord God made them all."
(Cecil F. Alexander)

My great-grandson getting acquainted with a katydid he named Leafster.
