Even in the harshest climates there is beauty. Up on the top of an old volcano, on the rim of a crater that is covered in snow most of the year, flowers bloom in Spring. Small, delicate and yet hardy. God’s gentle kisses for His little children.
Black and white photography. I love it, in fact most of the photos I keep on my walls are black and white. Yet I rarely edit them that way. I can’t seem to let go of the bright blues, deep greens and every other shade of color imaginable. So here we go, Wizard Island withContinue reading “Black and White Wizard”
One of our stops this summer included a secret garden. It took us a few trips around the place to find it. But when we did… Truly an amazing spot to behold. Someone took an amazing amount of time and energy building this and keeping it beautiful. I wanted to sit and just soak itContinue reading “The Secret Garden”
We had such a beautiful trip this summer. This is a river by a little, hidden hot spring resort. It was a hot day, and even hotter by the boiling springs. But by the river it was perfect. The water was absolutely freezing, yet the air was fresh and just the right temperature. The soundContinue reading “Splashing By…”
I am so thrilled to see our Swallowtails every spring. I am also fairly predictable by now I suppose. I can’t help it. I find such miracles in our daily lives. I want to share them with you too. The fingerprints of God right here. Why would God make a bug that starts out asContinue reading “The Wonders of this World”
This is a little Columbine a friend sent me seeds for. I actually forgot I had put them in a pot on our deck. Then low and behold come spring there are these amazing little flowers popping up everywhere! Oh how I love them. So here is a closer look of a Columbine blooming.
There is something about this weed that I love. It is just…fascinating. And then when it blooms it has a purple flower that grows around the spikey top like a tutu! Always looking for beauty everywhere!
I love our little swallows in their fancy tuxedos. I love watching them fly through the air catching their meals for themselves and their young. They fly as though they were acrobats with quick dives and many swirls every which way, chirping the whole time with tiny voices. They seem to love it. Just competeContinue reading “Joy in the Daily Grind”
Down the road from us and right off the highway of all places has become a birthing place for this deer. I get to watch her most years spend a few weeks having her fawns and keeping them safe until they are big enough to move on. She usually has two. One year I gotContinue reading “A Doe and Her Fawn”
We took a little family vacation this summer! This is amazing in so many ways. Not only because we haven’t ever been on a real vacation away in our 21 years of marriage but the sights we got to go see…were truly an unforgettable experience. If you haven’t recognized it yet this is Wizard IslandContinue reading “Unfathomable”
