When I heard our libraries were finally reopened, my heart soared! However, the library I normally frequent continued to be closed so I chose to visit another library nearby. What a miserable experience! A sterile environment is what I unknowing walked into where plastic shields separated patrons from employees. I saw most of the … Continue reading Pockets Of Hope

My “Red” Garden My “Pink” Garden ~~~~~~~ Now I tell you a story of Love. Most of what you will read is conjecture on my part, yet my Heart is telling me this is truth. I saw with my very own eyes a Labor of Love that I don’t think many … Continue reading From My Gardens
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. When I saw flashing lights ahead of me after crossing a huge bridge that spanned a huge gorge, I groaned. Sure enough … Continue reading Synchronicity
I have a very important announcement to make. A very good friend of mine gave birth to triplets yesterday. She chose natural childbirth surrounded by family so her Miracle Babies would be greeted gently and with a lot of Love. My hat is off to this Superwoman!! Congratulations, dear Sister! These three Roses opened the … Continue reading Celebration

Due to not doing research properly on Spectracide Triazidcide Insect Killer/ For Lawns & Landscapes, I am now contemplating on digging up all my Roses. Why? Bert, you are right. This spray will kill bees. I am doing everything I can to save the bees, and I have now sprayed a chemical on my Roses … Continue reading Between A Hard Rock and A Hard Place

My playing continues with my iPad camera. Here are three more MACRO photographs taken with my iPad and processed with software apps for photography on my iPad.
I will say this. It is really tricky to hold my iPad really still and keeping it in focus on the subject I am photographing. Why? I have to hold the iPad with only one hand (left), hold my breath, concentrate with all my might not to shake, and then push the camera button with my right hand, making sure I do not move the iPad as I push said button.
For the first time this year, I have Roses that are blooming. So of course I just had to take their pictures to show you!
I’ve also become very aware of the bokeh (background) while I am composing the image I am shooting. I’ve come to think of it as completing a painting on a canvas, and I’ve also coined it “geometric bokeh”.
I have for you, Jewels right from my gardens this morning. I hope you all enjoy the beauty you are about to see. There are a few Jewels that I have not seen in a long time, and there are more budding right now, which yes, I took photos of, but have not included in this post. One you are about to see, I have not seen in TWO years. Due to the changed weather patterns and insects not behaving as I am used to, I will have to change my strategy next year on how to protect my Roses better. *scratching head* For you that you do not garden or grow Roses, this is really challenging to do. Trying to figure out how to overcome weather and insects in ways I am not used to … takes some real thought!
Need I say anything here? Look for yourself. I think we ALL can learn from Charlie to take out more time just to chill and smell the Roses. Or in this case, just hang while communing with Nature. Enjoy!!!! (((HUGS))) Amy Charlie is 8 years old, and one of our FLUTD’s. He has been stable … Continue reading Chillin’ Charlie Style
This year again as last year, most of my Roses have been struggling due to abnormal weather patterns and insects. Yet the Roses that I do have that have shown their colors, are stunning, seemingly almost as if they would glow in the dark.
What did I tell you? When rain is forecasted here, it does not rain. So again I find myself looking at another garden day. Today, though, I will be a lot easier on myself then I was yesterday. As you can see from this photo, I did a ton of work yesterday. It doesn’t look like there is much in this garden (between sidewalk and house, towards the house), but there are a good (how many did I count yesterday?) ten maybe, Rose Bushes, most of them being ground cover Roses.
The only world I wish to exist is one with Beauty Roses and Bliss. One in which singing is heard equally both in Human and Bird. One filled with enticing aromas of Sugar and Spice. One filled with Peace Wonder and Joy for all to behold in Pure of Heart. I wish my World would … Continue reading I Wish
