TWiP: Slow this thing down!

This Week in Pictures, Week 24, 2021

I’ve been enjoying the day lilies this week. And in other news, my younger son graduated from high school on Friday. How did this happen? It seems like he was just graduating from 8th grade. Or preschool, for that matter!

This “raising children to adulthood” thing is a great ride, but it moves way too fast.

So, what is This Week in Pictures?

It’s a roundup of the little (and big!) moments I have captured all week. Some of these images are posted on Instagram, but many aren’t posted anywhere but here. Some days there may be no photos, and other days there may be multiples. It’s more laid back than the Project 365s of previous years. You can learn more here 🙂

Photos taken with 📷 (Canon EOS 80D) or 📱 (Samsung Galaxy S9).

Here’s a very short video, featuring 1.5-second moments from the week, including birdwatching, a new knitting project, and my younger son’s high school graduation 🥳:


I went to Duke Farms with my sister for a little birdwatching thing. It wasn’t really geared towards photography, but I did manage to capture this little swallow, who was hanging in his house, waiting for us to move on and leave him alone 😁


Day lily season is in full swing 🧡

Speaking of lilies… my mom has them in so many cool colors. I really love these red ones, in particular.


I have no idea what these are, but we’ve had them in the back yard forever.


My birthday balloons have basically called it quits.


The youngest Clarke is officially a high school graduate today. Love this guy. 🤎💛

Thanks for helping me celebrate the week! If you want to see this stuff as it happens, please feel free to follow me on Instagram ♥
