Sunday Stroll - Mother's Day

"Mother Nature has the power to please,
to comfort, to calm,
and to nurture one's soul."

~ Anthony Douglas Williams

On Sunday afternoon, 
my Mother's Day Gang and I headed out
 to the Shale Bluffs on a nearby beach 
for  a long walk and some beach combing.

Aquilegia canadensis
We found the elegant leaves of wild columbine pushing up through the shale.

Arabidopsis lyrata

Nearby, tiny rockcress flowers hovered above the sand in soft white clouds.

The creek emptied into Lake Michigan quietly,

as the sun warmed our happy faces.

Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you happiness.

If you have a minute, please go look at the beautiful kites on

Oh, I love the lake. I have only seen Lake Michigan from an airplane. I would love to see all of the Great Lakes.
I hope you had a lovely Mother's Day, lovely friend!
