The first bloom of my Love rose this year!
That Red Solo Cup finally found his love!

Going thru photos again and found a pattern – headlights. Old cars, trucks and tractors. They all had headlights. So here is a collection for you! Enjoy!
From one of my favorite parts of the country... glad to see the blooms!
This week the Bradford pear trees are in full bloom and I can hear the bees buzzing! It is so exciting to know that Spring is upon us! So here are a few photos of the Bradford pear blooms in our yard. Enjoy!
Quite some time back I presented a bit of a game in which I challenged the readers to determine what the picture’s subject was. I wanted to bring this back to you today b/c I just love the way these photos turned out and I’m curious to see if you know what it is. So here are a few photos of the same plant -yes, that was a big hint – and let’s see if you can tell me what it is! Have fun!
Along a side street in San Juan we ran across this little, and I do mean little, chapel. The colors were bright and the gold and silver brought some shimmer to the space.
In anticipation of the tulips blooming this year, I am sharing a couple of my photos of tulips from last year. These were some beautiful orange/red/yellow tulips that I purchased. I’ve been known to purchase them after Easter to plant in the ground – real deals! Enjoy!
Spring is almost here so it is time to start Bloom of the Week again!! I’m very excited to share with you the first blooms of the season here in north Texas – the daffodils! They are usually the first to bloom each Spring and it is the sign that I always look forward to each year. Enjoy!
Sighhhhh… in looking thru photos in my library today I found this overlooked photo of a ladybug and a daisy. I fell in love immediately. Such a great photo with my readiness for Spring to arrive this year!
Having fell in love with the streams and waterfalls around Multnomah & Wakheena falls I continually find new photos that I haven’t shared with you in my library of photos from that area. Here are a few more for you!
(note the two streams in which one was taken in the sun – Sunny stream – and one in the shade – Shady stream)

It is so exciting to see the daffodils blooming! That is when I know that Spring is here – despite whatever cold snap comes along. So I wanted to share some of the early daffodil photos with you. I took them this morning after that little cold front brought more rain. I love the raindrops on them. The “Reflecting Daffodil” intrigued me in that you can see the reflection of the ground – not yet green. Then the naughty “Flashing Daffodil” offers a little peek into her bloom. And the sweet “Angel Daffodil” shows off her wings. Enjoy!
Most of you don’t know, but Hubby proposed to me on February 13, 201o. So we really celebrate that day instead of the traditional Valentine’s day. I have many friends who were proposed to or married on the 13th or 14th of February. Alas, today is the day to celebrate love. So I will show you one of my favorite photos that I took from my wedding.
Forget Phil – the daffodils are coming! So it means Spring is on its way! Here are the first photos of the daffodils in our yard. Yes, they just look green but inside those little buds are some beautiful blooms!!
Having just returned from a trip to Montana I have some photos to share! One of them that I have already shared on my Facebook page caught the attention of several people. The more I look at it the more I like it so I am sharing it with you here! I like the differences in the landscape and the rolling clouds bringing a snow shower. Hope you enjoy!
On a recent trip to west Texas for hunting with my Hubby, I found this Chevrolet G60 in the field. I can’t seem to find a good bit of information on it or the MID equipment which is probably a vendor of PTO machinery. If you have any information please share!
We spent a weekend in Beavers Bend park in Oklahoma and though it is winter there were still plenty of interesting subjects for my camera. The river that runs through the park is very low – Hubby estimated at least 6 ft. So while he fished I walked along the exposed river bed edges and found these treasures. Enjoy!

One of our puppies, Blue, when he was even more of a pup! Cutest, sweetest face!
An unknown berry found in a field during this past snow fall. Enjoy!
We had a snow here in Texas on Christmas Day. Technically, a white Christmas. It had it beautiful moments but wasn’t really heavy enough or cold enough to stay around long. So I did get a few photos to share with you of the smaller aspects. Here are some that I altered to black and whites.
