Our garden friends

I recently started my graduate degree in Teaching English as a Second Language (Applied Linguistics) and would go out into our backyard garden to read my textbooks on a picnic blanket. September mornings are cool and fresh with dews like crystal jewels adorning grass blades and flowers. The early autumn sky is high and sapphire blue thanks to low humidity. The birds know the worst of summer heat is over so they express their joy by chirping heartily everyday.

In between reading the paragraphs in my textbooks, I would look up at the sky in search of hawks. They like to circle high above at first and then dive down suddenly. I would also breathe in the smell of the honeysuckle vines on our fence. Late August is when they bloom and send up an overwhelmingly sweet scent. One of the times I stared at the honeysuckle vines, I noticed some slight movement and vibrant colors among the honeysuckle flowers. When I came close to investigate, I found these lively creatures.

About David and Lam

A smitten couple and loving parents in our early 40s. We have lived in 3 different countries together. We dream of living in a fourth country together after our children grow up. We love long walks in the woods, climbing mountains, boating, traveling, reading, and being together. Both David and Lam are old souls who love quietness and meaningful conversations in which we ponder the truth and mysteries of life as well as discuss philosophical and ethical matters. We especially like to enjoy the small pleasures of daily life.
