Friday Pretties

It's been a hot, hot week here on the Eastern Shore of Maryland, with temperatures hovering near 100.  We had refreshing and much-needed rain last evening, and I'm hoping it may be a bit cooler today.

This week for Friday Pretties, I thought I would show you a few pretty things I've seen in my recent travels.    Thank you to Joyce from for hosting this special event each week.    When you have a moment, visit her blog and feast upon her own Pretties ... and then follow the links to our other friends.

Black-eyed Susans .... Maryland's State Flower

Wildflowers seen while driving through the Bombay Hook Wildlife Refuge this past Monday

Even though it has been hot, the sky has been filled with beautiful clouds ...

The geese have been staying cool in their own habitat ....

Ostrich at our local zoo ....

“Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air ..."
(Ralph Waldo Emerson)

And lastly, I wanted you to see this sweet statue located in front of an Animal Hospital on the Eastern Shore of Virginia ....

"May the raindrops fall lightly on your brow. May the soft winds freshen your spirit. May the sunshine brighten your heart. May the burdens of the day rest lightly upon you, and may God enfold you in the mantle of His love.”
