Good Fences-18

"Simplicity is beauty."
 
simple beauty reigns
when days are void of visions
splendour to recall

A simple fence, as a backdrop to a simple weed in my yard. Nothing very remarkable about either one, to most people. But to me, it's quite beautiful. An image I will treasure, and tuck away in my memory, for future reference.
 
I am experiencing some vision loss due to "optic neuritis", a fairly common occurrence with multiple sclerosis. It's getting increasingly more difficult for me to see things on the computer screen, but I pop by to visit blogs when I am feeling optimistic. Until next time...cheers!

The Merf

My little dog Merfy, 8 pounds of pure cuteness!
He makes even my hardest days, easier to get through.
 
I'm sorry that I haven't been visiting or commenting on many blogs lately. MS (Multiple Sclerosis) has reared it's ugly head, and I am unwell. Not to worry, this too shall pass. Until next time...cheers!

Summer Colours

Monarch butterfly
 
on my "pink delight" butterfly bush (Buddleia).
 
It's a little battered, but still beautiful.
 

Male Baltimore Oriole 

A grey squirrel (Patches), who I believe is Stoney Braveheart's mate.

Sunset And A Selfie

  Surrounded by nature's beauty at the cottage. Lake Huron, Ontario, Canada
 
I like the way reflections trick the eye. The trees reflected in the glass deck fencing in front, are hard to distinguish from the real trees behind me...or would that be the other way around!
