Just the other day I decided to go to Chestnut Ridge Park, camera in tow, with hope I’d hit the peak Fall colors. I wasn’t in tiptop form that day, yet I insisted on going. Deciding to leave my fanny pack with my water bottle in the car, and only carrying one camera body, I … Continue reading Creating Possible
In leaning in close to encourage another it’s as though Heaven itself conjoins with Earth. ~~~~ Every other year since I have been blogging, I would literally run after the colors seen in Fall.

Friends, I am getting there. I’ve gone through 72 pounds (32.66 kg) of fertilizer so far.

To go one step further, I weighed that … Continue reading Getting There!
For a little while, I plan on being quiet as in not here. The time has come for me to close up my gardens and due to all else in my life, it is going slowly. I’ve had to temporarily say no to gym and to blogging. Presently I’m fighting to assist my back and … Continue reading Temporary Quiet
For about a week, my sister and I had been playing phone tag. Very unusual for us because we do our darnedest to return voice messages with a prompt phone call. We speak on a [gasp] landline phone, not a cell. My sister normally doesn’t turn her cell on so any texts I sent I … Continue reading Bungled Bombshell

In much need of my therapist, I opened the cupboard door, reached in, and firmly took hold of my sanity check. From there I slid open our glass patio door to sit on our picnic bench. All Summer I’ve wanted to shoot those who come to my Hummingbird feeder and I just yesterday got around … Continue reading The Station
What are the chances it poured yesterday, the very day I planned on watering all my gardens? In fact, I had a sprinkler on, timer set, as I went upstairs to change from my pj’s into the clothes for the day. By the time I came back downstairs, a matter of about I’d say no … Continue reading Life!

The instructions on the fertilizers I plan on turning into the soil this Fall, direct me to put a certain amount in the soil per 100 square feet. Hubby’s eyes came to life after I … Continue reading Math Help

I decided I was going to shoot whatever caught my … Continue reading That Little Kid
Hubby asked me if I used several images to create this one picture. My answer was no. I couldn’t even if I knew how to, which I don’t. (smile) I was told the composition was exceptional, and to be truthful I was in awe as well. Just this one picture I could look and look … Continue reading Own It!

Do we ever really see the entire picture within each and every moment? ~~~~ Do we think it possible to be able to know all there is to know? ~~~ Do we take into consideration that life itself offers us patterns and standards if we but fully open? ~~~~ Do we have … Continue reading Do We?
What I went through yesterday just to get some pictures! I was eaten alive by skeeters even though I had insect repellent on! I was shocked! These insects this year have been ferocious, vicious, and in such a huge quantity that I cannot even walk out my door in the evening without putting insect repellent … Continue reading High Price To Pay!
Why are roses symbolic of Love when along with the rose come very sharp thorns that if not handled with care do prick and make bleed? Could roses be representations of Love because Love includes both Beauty and pain? ~~~~~~ Handheld manual macro photography/ “Roses … Continue reading Love And Roses

With one eye on the clock, I was headed towards my Chiropractor’s office. If I hit green lights for the most part, I think I had a good chance getting there on time.
