Writing about Stillwaters is a Pleasure!

Writing about Stillwaters is a Pleasure!

Blogging about Stillwaters every week gives me an opportunity to write about many different things.  It has now been five years of writing this blog and though the topics are wide ranging I never tire of showing off our beautiful flowers and nature found here.

This week as I was wandering around the neighborhood I found some flowers and flower baskets to highlight – ones that have survived our recent heat wave.

We also have resident deer that spend quiet afternoons snoozing in backyards and munching on local fauna.

We live in such a beautiful area – get out and enjoy the many activities going on this weekend (see below) in the community.  The heat is now abated and we can all come out of our shady (and hopefully cooler) homes to join in the fun.

Quote of the week:

Look up at the stars and not down at your feet. Try to make sense of what you see, and wonder about what makes the universe exist. Be curious.  – Stephen Hawking
