  1. I’ve been waiting for you to open the comments back up. I thought about emailing or texting you, but decided to respect your privacy. I know you’ve been through a rough time recently, and I was worried – I’m so happy to see you back!

    1. Thank you, CM. The nightmare I just walked left deep wounds, ones that will heal in time, yes, but for now, I turn to my gardens, hiking, and my photography as a source of healing. Everything that could go wrong did. I’m left haunted and shattered. Digging deep within I am finding the strength to go on, moving forward, yet I must grieve as well. Thank you for your concern, dear friend. Between getting very ill and experiencing hell, I had to take some time off. Yes I am back. 🙂 ❤

    1. Surely does, Susan. Soon, the Peony braces will have to go up so that the flowers don’t end up on the ground. I’ve been a busy bee in my gardens this year. Hope you are feeling well! ❤

      1. This is the third round so I have a better idea of how to stay as comfortable as possible. Ginger is great to deal with nausea but you probably already know that. Thank you for writing.

    1. Hi, Van! It is good to be back! Physically I am so much better. It is the emotional that I am struggling with so who knows where my camera will take me? What I am presently shooting is a step into the great unknown new. Why does growth come with pain? It just does. Thank you for being here today when I have come back to WP. Bless you, dear friend!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

    1. This camera lens is bringing to our eyes such Perfection that it is stunning! I am gaining confidence and changing how I shoot and the results are mind blowing. It seems I am now on a new journey. Thank you for being here today, Erika. ❤

  2. I love that second image. Amy. I hope the fact that the comments are open means that you are feeling better after all you’ve been through. That’s it. I just want to say that. You don’t have to respond. Your recent photos have been gorgeous.

    1. Hi, Dan. I am giving blogging a try so I’m taking it one day at a time. The only way I know how to heal is to create beauty from my pain. I really am just shattered right now, and with this pain I will not turn to substances that kill, but rather modalities that create beauty. I intend to be with my camera a lot, in my gardens a lot, and hiking a lot. I was in a situation years ago very similar to what I am facing now, and the only way I came to Peace was to create more gardens. I believe that is what I will be doing. I’m so happy you have been enjoying my pictures. More are on the way. ❤ ❤ ❤

  3. Welcome back, Amy. I’m so sorry for your loss, but you did all that anyone could do and more for that dear Prinny. Hope also that you are feeling better physically now, and will take care of yourself. Your hiking is a very good sign! Lovely photos as ever. Love, Chris xx

    1. Thank you, Chris, for your kindness. Yes I did everything I could for Prinny but unfortunately her euthanasia was a nightmare. I have yet to speak to our Vet because I first have to get these volatile emotions to Peace. I deserve answers for restitution and I will get them. I am feeling better as well, thank you! I came really too close to getting very ill. Bless you for your concern and thoughtfulness. Love, Amy ❤

  4. What beautiful images of nature just starting out. Love them. I too was worried and so glad to see you back. I can only imagine the pain that you went through. Know that you were in my thoughts. Hugs Kathy ❤

    1. I’m all right physically, Kathy. The antibiotics and rest healed what was ailing this body. Emotionally I’m still a wreck. I’m focusing on leveling out in order to have a “talk” with our Vet about the horrible euthanasia I witnessed. It’s a Blessing in disguise for I have decided no more at the office, but rather in-home euthanasia. I’ve been in contact with a Vet who only does in-home euthanasia, and having answered all my questions and then some, I feel confident I can trust her. It’s more expensive this way, BUT this is for my cats’ security in being in our home to pass. It’s going to take a long while before I can ease this pain in my Heart, not only from Prinny, but Molly and my Dad, too. I’ll be making new gardens and hiking a lot. And of course my camera will never be far from my hands. Love you, dear friend. ❤

      1. It’s been rough since my Dad died, Kathy. Even though I am still taking care of some pretty sick cats, for the first time in a long time I am getting some respite. Thank God!! I have major healing to be done. HUGS back to you!!! ❤

    1. Bless you for your kindness, Alifya. I am just so touched. Physically I am much much better but emotionally I really am a wreck. I have this huge hole in my chest and still have as yet to talk to our Vet who performed the worst euthanasia I have ever seen. It was a nightmare and those memories are haunting me. I really have some relief from the intensity of taking care of these cats right now, so finally I can address some major healing that I really need. I am strong yet falling apart at times. Much good is coming out of this so yes, Blessings are emerging. (((HUGS))) Amy ❤

    1. Thank you and Bless you, Eliza. I awoke with Peace in my Heart this morning, the first time since Prinny passed. Being outdoors in my gardens or in forests, and having camera in hand, have all helped immensely. I have the windows slightly open and hearing the bird song is just so delicious to my soul. I know I have many “miles” to travel for total closure regarding my Dad, Molly and Prinny, but this Peace this morn brings Hope to my belng that the torment is being laid to rest. I’m putting together another post for this week, probably my last one seeing the weekend is Memorial Weekend, so don’t miss that one. I believe I have a total of 9 macros and these shots are going to show you how I am taking macro photography a step further. Hope you have a wonderful day!!! ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. Nature is the best therapy for sure. It soothes like no other. The first week (and month) are the worst (I know from my own experience). Such heartbreak. Sometimes it feels like you can’t even breathe. I’m glad you are getting out and about.
        I’ll look forward to seeing your next post. XO ❤

    1. Thank YOU and thank YOU, Ms. Birthday Girl! I LOVE the color of my hair too. A very talented 18 year old girl did it and I am due to get another touchup. Long story short … from all the stress I had been under, I lost the life, color and actual hair fell out by the ton. Just recently the life, color and bounce in my hair has returned and it is no longer falling out. Oh to have sexy hair again. I LOVE it!!! 😉 ❤

  5. Love the title as it relates perfectly with your photos ~ and the opening shot seems a perfect one to begin this post. Looks like you lost yourself in this wonderful world of birth (and rebirth). Cheers to a great day (or evening…) ahead 🙂

  6. These are exquisite macros of the wonder-filled process of birth, Amy! Love every one of them. I am just now starting to experiment with my new Canon 100mm macro lens and these pictures really encourage me to practice more ❤ Much love, Tiny
