Friday Photo Fun! :)

Copper (our lab) and I recently went on one of our “water tank” hikes. Though we’ve done this many times, I still take more pictures. How many photos can one have of the same location? Well, I guess many, if you try for new angles. It’s kind of like an addiction, but a healthy one. The hike is uphill from our house and we ended up with tall grass hugging us while walking on thin trails and all I could think about were ticks. Copper stays on flea and tick medication but once in awhile, they still manage to get on him.
Luckily, when we got home he was tick free and so was I! 🙂

I’m also including some flowers from our yard.
It’s coming back to life
now that Copper is getting a little older and less mischievous. 🙂

We have no idea what this is, as it moved in
before we did. 🙂

HAPPY FRIDAY!  ♥

Friday Flora & Fun

In my last post, I mentioned that I’ve always loved taking photos. So I’m sharing some flowers for your Friday, though they are amateur. Currently, my only camera is my iPhone, which isn’t the best, but it works for me and is easy! 🙂 Along with the flora, I’ll add a little rhyming fun for this day and I hope you enjoy!

Today is great
for happy dancing and
jolly singing, too – ♫
not only for a Friday,
any day will surely do!

I’m not a professional photographer, so please go easy on me 🙂
and since our camera needs replacing, I’ve been using my iPhone.
Anyway, t
he rose is in our yard, but the other flowers I came across
while taking Copper, our lab, for his daily walks.
I don’t always take my phone, but when I do,
there’s always
something
I’d love to remember in photo form.
I’m not even sure I can choose a favorite.
I love them all and this happens to show
more of pinks and purples,
but I also love the vivid reds, oranges and yellows.
Sounds like a future blog post?
Maybe…
Anyway, what is your favorite?

I hope you enjoyed this little bit of flora
and feel free to take some beauty
with you to begin your weekend. ♥

A Very Special Rose

rose


Many flowers live in gardens
Their colors add light to our days
but one bud shines brighter than others
It’s special in so many ways

 This flower radiates strength
and our world is a better place
with all the love that is offered
in it’s very warm embrace

This is dedicated to my
very special blogging friend,
Granbee,
also known as Rose.

She hasn’t blogged in a long time
and I miss her.
I know I’m not alone,
as she is missed by many.
She remains in our prayers
and we hope to be graced
by her presence again.

We love you, Rose ♥

Hello Monday! :)

There is no poem for today,
but for the lack of a poem,
I though I’d share these beautiful flowers
my hubby and I bought at a local
farmer’s market this weekend.

I just love fresh flowers in the house. 
The colors brighten the room and lift spirits
and remind us of God’s love through
nature’s beauty that we have
an abundance of…

Wishes for a Magnificent Monday! ♥♥♥
