Your pictures are beautiful and inspiring. I like that “silent Sunday.” I wish everyone would have silent Sundays, wouldn’t that be neat? Silence….. do you speak at all or do you use Sundays as “retreats” from civilization? Here my husband and I don’t know anyone around our house (even though we have lived here since 1976….) and so if he goes away in the afternoon – I never speak to anyone – it is so silent – I like that. So have a Happy Silent Sunday!

My Dad's favourite flowers are tulips, yet we have never grown them in our gardens! I, too, love silence! Thank you for sharing your beautiful world with us, in blissful silence :)

I love to visit and share your day's activities. Even better when I don't have to share the actual hard work of gardening! Talking of protected views, the one east from your home should be on the list.

Did that big storm hit your area last night? It was a huge storm that went on for hours. Hail, spectacular lightning and thunder, heavy winds with tornado warnings. and teeming rain...

Awwww.... I see baby chicks!!! Cute! I want to hold a fluffy little chick. I love the cloud photos, those are great.

The silence is only on my blog post, Vagabonde. NPR is on the radio and there's talking in the house... But it's a pleasant idea. Actually, long stretches of most of my days are pretty silent.

Desiree -- we grow a few -- but sooner or later, rodents will eat the bulbs.

jennyfreckles -- I heartily agree about protecting the view!

Brian -- my son has included that triangle design in quite a few of his walls - I really like it.

Thanks, lines and shades!

We missed the storm, Deana -- saw lots of lightning in the distance (over your way) but only got wind and a little rain.

Brenda -- I'll get better pictures of the chicks -- it was rather dark and they are still pretty shy.

Beautiful! Though I didn't have the best of trips to Virginia, I did enjoy the beauty of the flowering trees there. There are so many different varieties, and it is hard to tell which one is the most beautiful. But, together they make a spectacular tapestry.

I say again, you live in a beautiful part of the world, plus you have created beauty within it.
