Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

Photography is an art that takes skill, patience and lots of practice.  I truly admire and am inspired by the awesome photos some of you have taken.  Being a novice and still learning the features of the Nikon P520 camera, I’ve been doing a lot of practicing.

My son and I had an appointment at the University of Delaware and while there we took these pictures at the Native Plant Teaching Garden.

According to the University of Delaware’s Cooperative Extension Program’s website – “Native Plant Teaching Garden:  Designed to create an awareness of the cumulative environmental benefits that can be achieved through the use of native plants by providing an aesthetically pleasing demonstration garden easily adaptable to the home landscape.  The garden consists of different niches, each planted with material appropriate for the site:  a butterfly garden, bio-retention system (rain garden), meadow, foundation plantings, shrubs and paths, and perennial border.”

It was a beautiful day to be in The Teaching Garden and a great opportunity to get in a lot of practice.

With the change of seasons, I hope to get more outdoor shots including those dreaded snow days!

How do you think we did?

Hello Friends and Happy Ju’last day in July!

I hope it’s just a beautiful where you are as it is here because we have been experiencing wonderful weather this week. Tomorrow calls for a little rain but the rest of the week and into the weekend will be simply gorgeous! I have two blogging assignments scheduled for Thursday, one is a meeting to discuss doing a review for the Grand Opening of the Westown Movie Theater coming to Middletown this fall.  Then mid-morning I will be heading to Wilmington to take pictures and interview young entrepreneurs who have completed “The Chasing The Dream Entrepreneurship Camp” sponsored by The Money School of Delaware.

I have taken the day off from work, however, if you’re working tomorrow in Wilmington, please stop by Rodney Square between 11 and 1 for the “Chasing The Dream Entrepreneurship Marketplace”.  Students learned about starting businesses and now they have an opportunity and tools to run those businesses so please come out and support (don’t forget to bring an umbrella).

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

In my current job I no longer have much of an opportunity to travel and my daily commute from Middletown, DE to West Chester, PA can be quite boring.  Yesterday I had the chance to make a site visit to Marlton, NJ, or as I like to call it, “Exit 4 on the Jersey Turnpike”.  Not to say that driving straight away on the turnpike wasn’t boring because it was, what made it all worthwhile was the location itself.

The building is surrounded with a man made pond that has ducks, a fountain and beautiful flora.  The Atrium is also serene and peaceful with tall palm trees, plants and flowers.  I think coming into this building on a daily would put anyone in the right frame of mind no matter what the traffic was like in getting there.  Here are just a few pictures of the outside, I will post the interior shots tomorrow.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

We’re having a heatwave…a tropical heatwave and the solar cover arrived just in time to capture the rays.  By Sunday the pool should be warm enough to swim in, who will be swimming, now that’s another story.  My men don’t have much of an interest anymore so most of the summer it’s just me, my magazines and music!

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Today we officially open the pool for the season and despite the cold temps, Pool Care Specialist will be onsite to reassemble the parts and add the necessary chemicals.  Every year I think about  purchasing a better pool cover so that the water won’t be too dirty when opened in the Spring.  It’s been over 10 years and I still haven’t gotten it but thanks to the mild winter it doesn’t look too bad and by Memorial Day weekend it will be sparkling clear.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday!

The weather so far this Spring has been two tone – warm one day, cold the next … sunny one day, raining the next…warm during the day and freezing at night.  This afternoon it’s expected to be warm which is definitely a relief because the past few nights have been extremely chilly so much so that we had to turn the heat back on.  I am not going to complain too much as there are states that are still dealing with snow and flooding which is far worse than anything we are experiencing.

In keeping with the two tone theme, today’s outfit is a combination of two trends:

Color Blocking and Black & White.

Hello Friends and Happy Hump Day Wednesday

Today would have been my sister’s 50th birthday and as kids I would call her “Glori” , so what could have been a gloomy day turned out to be a Glori-ous one, my Angel still shines brightly – Rest In Heaven Glori!

It took a little longer to get dressed this morning because I’m still not wearing heels and the weather forecast called for temps in the 80’s .  As much as I wanted to break out the summer gear I held back.  Decided on this thrifted polka dot skirt from GW Boutique, red sleeveless top from Ross or TJ Maxx/Marshalls and Red Stripped Wedge shoes from Avon.
