Our Rhody Fest is in May, with the Grand Parade, tricycle races, the bed race, and my Sunrise Rotary “Running of the Balls”. But I took this photograph two days ago: this rhododendron is not going to wait for May. No time like the present and in full bloom in February and gorgeous. A touch, a promise, harbinger of spring!
Another cabin door at Lake Matinenda. My aunt and uncle built this cabin, with help from family, including my parents. This is taken in 2006. We are gearing up to play pirates. My niece and I are wearing “pirate” makeup and my daughter has gone with “princess”. I put tiny braids in my hair and braided in fern bits, leaves, match sticks and other small things, like Captain Jack Sparrow. Then the pirates went to capture all the people!
This is in a cabin at Lake Matinenda, in 2006. The door is to a screen porch, green and on the left of the picture. This is shot through the screen, other than my daughter. I love the layers of family all busy with things…and the missing screens. We repaired them that summer.
