Have You Seen My Glasses?

At last I didn't lose them ... on my face (because that really has happened before)!

Gee thanks, Ribbit, for making me think I was crazy!!!

Wild Rose

The wild roses are coming into bloom.
I've always loved their delicate beauty and subtle fragrance.

I never before realized they were even more beautiful close up!

Why Do We All Hate Dandelions?

I think almost everyone has had one of these in their landscape a time or two.
People spend lots and lots of time and money trying to eradicate these flowery "pests".

Before you mow them over this year ...
Or pull them out by their (very long!) tap roots ...
Or poison them out of existence ...

Take a closer look ...

Inside a dandelion flower ... 
Did you realize they were this beautiful?

And so full of life?

Now I really must go ... it's supposed to rain later today, and I want to get some yard work done before the storm hits.

Must pull up those darn pesky dandelions before they go to seed!!!

Snow Critters

During our snowstorm back in early February, I went for a walk.
As it turns out, I wasn't alone!
These deer were meandering up our road - they didn't appear to feel threatened by me and my camera.

A short time later, I saw movement in the woods - and this little coyote popped out and ran across the road right in front of me!
I had time to snap this one blurry shot, then my camera battery died. Aaarrrgh!
And he was gone.
(fortunately he left in the opposite direction of those deer!)

I'm linking this up for the first time with Eileen's "Saturday's Critters"

Why This Picture Warms My Heart ...

It's just a plain picture of mom's church in winter. Later in the spring, this plot will burst forth with daffodils, tulips and other spring beauties.

But wait a minute ... look closely at that bush in the middle ...

Is that a flower???
 (Click on the picture to enlarge ...)

Doesn't this just warm your heart?
 It does mine!

Building Reflections

I spend a lot of time driving; and waiting lately.
On one of those days, waiting for my mom at the doctor's office, the fog finally lifted, and the sun came out.
I went for a walk - and found this building with the most amazing reflections.

A beautiful abstract work of art!
