raindrops on roses…
A few storms rolled through, this week. Wednesday morning, the sun peeked through the clouds; perfect for camera practice.
While J and Gabi (visiting a few days) were occupied with bike riding and other pursuits, I shot a few photos around our patio.
Lots of practice, definitely needed. I learn something new from each of these practice sessions.
Points of light, in the background, are known as Bokeh.

Remember these berries from Sunday’s post?

Most of the family was there to celebrate, when Gabi graduated, Tuesday May 11th. Her cap, tassel, diploma, and a rose from one of her bouquets are seen in the photo, above.
The KC kids were unable to attend, due to time and distance. Even though Xanti’s parents and brother, Noah, weren’t there, she was. What a joy, she is.
Family celebrations are shared with my daughters’ dad and step-mom. They were there, Tuesday evening. We always sit together, at functions, as a family. We know this isn’t always the way it is when parents divorce. We are all very grateful parents, to share in celebrations, together.
As with everyone, life hasn’t always been easy, for J and Pat. We’ve paid a few dues and we are, appreciatively, reaping the benefits, in our golden years. One of those benefits is being a part of special celebrations.

Small changes are taking place in the dining room. More about that, soon.

Hope your weekend is beautiful.
***I used my Canon Rebel Xti Camera and Tameron 18-200 Lens, for the rose and hosta photographs, in this post. The setting was AV, ISO 400. Most of the other photos were done with the Canon G11 Powershot.
