Merry Christmas!!!

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful."  ~Norman Vincent Peale

The photos have nothing to do with Christmas other than being taken during the season.  The quote is one I found and I liked.  Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas!!

My Sweet Angels


"Sometimes the angels God sends to watch over us have four legs and a tail."  ~Anonymous

These are my sweet angels Charlie and Annie.  I honestly don't know what I'd do without them.  They have brought so much love, joy and laughter into my life.

Delightful findings

I spent most of the day walking around the backyard and down the dirt road in front of the house.  I found these images and thought they were good enough to share with those of you that still drop by from time to time.
I hope you enjoy them. 

Light shining through some leaves. 

I saw this bunch of leaves and thought they were pretty.  I took a photo but didn't realize how nice they looked until now. 

An old neglected fence at the front near the road.  The home it belongs to is abandoned.  I love how the light is hitting the fence. 

Annie at the back of the property.  I'm not sure what she's looking at.  She probably looked away because I had the camera out.

Charlie walking through the multitude of leaves that have fallen in the past week.  Although this photo doesn't show it the leaves are a mix of brown, red, yellow/gold and a few green ones here and there.

Trees with very few remaining leaves.  I like this one against the blue sky and white clouds.  I took this from the dirt road in front of the house. 

Some trees have very few leaves left but some of them like this one is already starting to produce new buds. 

I like the bokeh in this this one and how the sun light shines through the leaves.

Finding beauty everywhere

"If you truly love Nature, you will find beauty everywhere."  ~Vincent Van Gogh

I'm quite positive this is some kind of weed but I have no idea what it's called. It's very pretty whatever it is. There is quite a bit of it growing around the yard and along side the streets here in Spring Hill. The last photo in the previous post "Little Treasures" is the same plant.
