Happy Father's Day!

Mother Nature's timetable is amazing to see. Something lovely is in bloom from April through November.

I walk past this tree every day. Behold! See what happened to it overnight? It is a Catulpa tree and has shiny heart shaped leaves.

June is the time for roses.

I sure wish I hadn't jiggled the camera - these roses are glorious in their setting.

This is the picture my dad painted (in 1970 I think) of an Amish farm auction.
I hope everybody has a happy Father's Day.

Wow, that painting is beautiful, I am always in awe of artists! what a beautiful memorial you have written for your father, he sounds like he was a truly wonderful man : )

Amazing your dad was so talented, what a wonderful painting. Also I like your jiggled roses photo, it adds some mystery. Fathers day is in September here, I thought I lost a few months when I saw your title. I hope you all had a good day.

Thank you all, so much, for your kind words. Yes, my dad was the best, and it was really good therapy for me to have a post in his honor.
