52 Tuesdays Challenge #21: Tree

Welcome to week 21 of the 52 Tuesdays Challenge! Each week I chose a word that begins with at T and share my photos, stories or even a quote. I ask that you join me in the Challenge and share your own photos, stories, quotes, whatever as well. Just link back to this blog post or add your own blog post link to the comments. Have fun!

This week’s T word is Tree! 

I love flowers so a flowering tree is a big bonus for me. The one I am sharing with you today is one of my favorites – it is in the yard where my husband grew up. I also love it because it is just a beautiful representation of the seasons. So I’m sharing with you today the series “Glenna’s Dogwood”.  (Glenna being my husband’s late mother.)

Orange – Coloring Our World

Nature is full of color! The fall is one of the best for warm colors. Maybe because it’s about to get cold so Mother Nature wants you to feel the warmth…

Anywho, for the Color Your World – Orange challenge, I’ve picked this photo which also made Birthday Sunrise Photo of the Day on Light & Composition, with a beautiful Texas sunrise on my birthday in October! Enjoy!

Too Darned Cold

Last night, my son and I went to see Interstellar at the movies. It’s been colder than normal here in Texas, as in many of the US states. But I was shocked when I opened the door of the theatre and stepped out into the SNOW! It’s not even Thanksgiving yet and it was snowing! I’m not a fan of the cold – give me a sunny beach any day of the week! It also reminded me of our horrid and destructive ice storm last December. Even in the destruction, though, you could find some beauty…
