Scavenger Hunt Sunday ~ June 16, 2013

Another week!
Another hunt!
My, how time flies!
 
This weeks prompts were:
summer
dance
laughter
helper
water
 
Some of these were very challenging! I  needed to have my grandchildren around to help me with them, especially dance, laughter, and helper!  Mr. H could have been my helper and danced around until I was filled with laughter, but that's was not happening; model for me he does not do! Therefore, I had to once again stretch my imagination and I did go to my archives for the helper image.
 
 
summer
To me summer begins when the hydrangeas bloom.
 
 
dance
Have you every watched a peacock dance?
This fine looking fellow was trying to impress a female
by dancing with his feathers fanned out.
He also did  a lot of tail shaking.
 
 
laughter
I thought I heard some laughter in the woods!
 
 
helper
A big brother is a best friend, a buddy, and a great helper.
 
 
water
Water in my favorite form...droplets.
 
 
 I hope you all have a wonderful Father's Day.


This is my dad. He's in his 80's and suffers from Alzheimer's. We are so blessed that even though he may not remember where he went yesterday or what he ate, he still remembers us. My dad is happy. He doesn't smile as much as he used to, but he is content. Happy Father's Day, Dad!

  1. Your hydrangeas blooms are beautiful, Cathy. I always enjoy the beauty of peacock feathers.

    Prayers to your family as you deal with a Alzheimers. What a blessing that your Dad remembers you and is happy. Everyday is a gift.

  3. I couldn't wait to see your post with that peacock jumping out of the linky. The thought of Mr H helping you with those prompts, made me laugh-not at him, but the way you describe how he wouldn't. Love that spring/summer collage with it's cool blue colors.

    A very Happy Father's Day to your Dad!

  9. Lovely shots. The flowers and the peacock and your grandsons playing - and to end up, your dad sitting on that wooden bench surrounded by nature and finding contentment in his life. Lovely water droplets on a leaf.

  11. Wonderful selection of photos, Cathy! I adore your hydrangea montage! How did you ever manage to get the peacock to display his feathers -- they always seem to run away from me.
