Accept when I was taking this picture. :)


These are all simple pleasures and sites that are Beautiful to me. 

I have not seen many “Wonders” Of The World”,

but I am in wonder of what I do see.

 Mirror Reflection of me.



I have been spending as much time as I can outdoors enjoying summer, which is my favorite time of the year. I haven’t been out as much taking pictures as I have been in the past. Well you know …… busy, busy, busy. My life is full and life is good. Lots happening in my life and family. Hope is doing really well , and I do have another grandchild due any day now.

Some of you will remember  my son Ed, and Samantha. Well they are expecting a little baby boy any day now. Sam is full term and her due date is Aug. 8th. We are all very excited as we wait for his arrival. :)

Well my dear sweet husband has dinner well on it’s way, so I had better post this and go throw on a couple of steaks. Hope you are all well and enjoying your summer. I will be around for a visit so see you then.

Love and Care

Dianne :)



  1. One doesn't have to travel far to see beauty and the wonders of creation,as your pictures show so beautifully.
    I love those casual shots and oh,that reflection is amazing.

  2. Hi Dianne,

    Beautiful pictures, pleased you are happy and well. About to be a grandmother again! pray all goes well for you all.

    Hugs Nita.

  3. Wonderful photos, as always, Dianne! That deck looks so inviting. Can't wait to see photos of the new baby.

    I know all too well about limited shooting time but when you do get out you enjoy it all that much more, don't you?

  4. There's truly no wonder like the one right in front of you wherever that may be and wherever you may find yourself for sure. Sounds like you've got plenty of wonderful blessings on the way, I'm blessed to hear of it my friend.

  5. The photos are lovely!

    Congrats on the new baby coming soon!

  8. I wish them both a healthy boy and has a nice future. I also have a granddaughter. How time flies. Recently it has been my children, grandchildren now. Great photos. You feel for the images. Many greetings! Peter.

  9. I love your comment on the Wonders of the earth, I feel the same way about what I see outside my backdoor too...beautiful post.

  10. But thru the phtotos I see you haven't lost sight to those special moments that present themselves. You live in a beautiful area and a beautiful retreat right at home. Enjoy those times. Your grandchild should be born around this time. Wishing you more wonderful moments with him. Hugs Carrie

  11. Love seeing a bit of your world, Dianne!

  12. Your charming backyard is delightful. I too cherish summer and time sitting outside with the birds and nature as it happens. Is this another new grandchild for you? I thought you just had one arrive last month? A little girl...enjoy your summer.

  13. I enjoyed wandering about your site. Beautiful pictures and outlook on life. Also enjoyed seeing Canada from your lens. It is amazing how the pictures could have taken from this area. Country roads and fields.

  14. Hi Dianne I know just what you mean it doesn't cost a fortune either it's all there for us to see. If we take the time to look and listen beautiful pictures , your area is very stunning I just love the park so pretty. Your back porch is wonderful and so peaceful I can see why you love to sit there on a beautiful day . Very happy to hear Hope is doing very well , and another little treasure is due very soon. Enjoy the rest of the warm summer I love seeing your cycle trips Hugs Sheila :) xx

  15. Thank you ever so much, each and every one of you, Ruth, Nita, Chip, Joe, Beth, Matteo, Lisa, Peter, Anita, Carrie, Gail, Janie, Brenda, and Sheila. Your warm comments have touched my heart, and for that I am grateful. :)
