Phenomenal Mondays

Happy Monday to all you phenomenal women out there! For all that you do effortlessly and naturally, the mundane and the sublime… remember to not forget who you are and hold your head high. Have a phenomenal week, everyone!


Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

Jaunty HatNow you understand
Just why my head’s not bowed.
I don’t shout or jump about
Or have to talk real loud.
When you see me passing
It ought to make you proud.
I say,
It’s in the click of my heels,
The bend of my hair,
the palm of my hand,
The need of my care,
‘Cause I’m a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That’s me.

excerpt from Maya Angelou’s  Phenomenal Woman

Hungry in the Garden


This is my favorite shot in the series of nest photos. See, a couple of robins started building a nest in our garden early in the spring. We were amazed that they didn’t build their nest high up in the tree like they normally do. Instead, they built it quite low, on the ledge of our grape trellis. Low enough that if I hold up my camera, I could see into the nest. I managed to capture shots of the eggs until the nestlings hatched and flew from the nest. Check out the photos in our backyard.
