Gardens

Oh my goodness!! Editing all these pictures … whew! And then while editing I realized I had forgotten to photograph one garden that has new flowers in it. At this point, I’m not about to run and catch a snap. As some would say. (smile) I do show within my images the new flowers in … Continue reading Gardens

Wildlife Break

*Turn phones horizontal/visit blog to view FULL SCREEN* ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I took a day off from all the heavy gardening I’ve been doing to go to Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve Park, taking with me my Canon camera and 100-400mm lens.

Time (10 IMAGES)

  (Two great songs connected to links ‚áď you don’t want to miss.) Time¬†has been doing some strange I’m talking weird things of late. Last week I thought was at least 2 weeks long with most days finding me not knowing which day it was. Time¬†looped round and round as I dug and dug, planting … Continue reading Time (10 IMAGES)

Last evening a display of vibrant oranges and reds and yellows splashed across the darkening skies. This week is going to be a good one, I can just feel it. Why do I say this? How else could a week be any other then good when the very sky itself announces boldly that this week … Continue reading Announcing …

Along The Path

Hubby took me for a walk in Reinstein Woods Nature Preserve Park on Mother’s Day with not only my camera on my person, but his camera on his as well. About where I shot this picture and down a bit, we bumped into a man with a monopod slung over his shoulder with his Canon … Continue reading Along The Path

When From Love

Yesterday I agreed to go someplace with Hubby, even though I told him I did not wish to. ¬†Earlier, however, he stated that he wanted to go but that he did not feel comfortable going without me. Instead of a tug of war, “I don’t want to go”, “I do want to go but …,” … Continue reading When From Love

Broken Child

They who hold harsh grudges and condemnation as judges within their angry breasts deny Prince Peace a place of rest as shattered dreams of such strife fight within their war-torn life ~~~~ I honestly “thought” these small “wisdom sayings” were a thing of the past. ¬†I was proven wrong one eve not long ago as … Continue reading Broken Child

Fear (7 IMAGES)

Funny this thing we call and know as fear. ¬†It comes in all sorts of disguises. ¬†And in so doing it keeps us imprisoned in learned responses all with the intention to perpetuate fear over and over again. The stomach cramps. ¬†The back of the neck tightens. ¬†The breath becomes shallow. ¬†The heart rate increases. … Continue reading Fear (7 IMAGES)
