It’s not just the turtles that I find fascinating at CNC.  This beautifully constructed and gorgeous hotel for bees really caught my imagination.  It’s like a giant sculpture waiting to be explored.  Luckily, I know better than to disturb the inhabitants’ beauty rest.

Parker Mills of Boy Scout Troop 433 organized his Eagle Scout Service Project around protecting native bees.  Who knew that some bees prefer their own suite?

H and I just visited the Chattahoochee Nature Center, where I was mesmerized by the turtles.  I’ve never seen quite so many dipping, diving, and floating within a hand’s reach.   The reflections of the clouds gave them some amazing superpowers.

We live near the city of Marietta, Georgia, where a growing focus on public art has made the city an increasingly exciting place to visit.  This past spring, the town celebrated its newly opened Mountain to River Trail with an invitation to local artists to contribute to a rotating exhibit of vibrant murals, sculptures, and installations along the way.  H and I recently spent a lovely evening exploring the side streets, where turning each corner brought a surprise burst of color and fun.  (Visit the Marietta Public Art Tour site for more.)

Ducks in a Row

That’s a lot of wooden ducks to have sitting around the house.

The Good Kind

These are my kind of bugs.  They don’t bite, sting, or annoy… they just look cute.

That’s a Wrap

I love scarves.  I’m drawn to them not only for warmth, but also for the colors and patterns and textures.  The weather is finally warming up enough that it’s time to pack mine away, but not without a last look.
