Updated Photo Website
I post what I consider to be my best photos on www.gratefulheartphoto.com. I have simplified the look and navigation of the site as well as added a new portfolio, Two Miles. In this portfolio I will be displaying images I have taken within a two mile radius of my home in Henrietta NY. I never really thought about it before but I have accumulated a number of interesing images without the need to travel very far afield. Click here to take a look at the new site.
Summer has arrived in the Finger Lakes after a wetter than usual spring. As a result the flora of our area–both the natural and cultivated–has returned in super abundance. The hydrangea this year are particularly beautiful. Many of us were tempted to give up on them after two years of almost no blooms. I have traveled to North Carolina, West Virginia and Buffalo to watch grandkids in their sports, mostly baseball. Grandson, Grady, here in Rochester is playing on a travel team and plays many, many games. You can find out more by looking at my travel blogs in the article to the right. In July we will make our annual summer visit to Kansas City to visit my sisters along with some time with Sr. Paula in Clyde and our Sciolaro cousins in Maize, just outside Wichita, Kansas. August will see us off to West Virginia to watch Braden begin her year as Senior captain of the State Championship Girls Soccer Team at University High School. Brock will be play high school soccer this year and Brady begins his football season. October will see us off to Colorado for a BeadforLife meeting and then visiting with Terry and Johnny in the mountains of the West.
