#photoadaymay – pink

when we moved into this house, there were flowers everywhere, one of my favorites is the geraniums of many colors in the front and back yards.  i am not a huge fan of pink, usually avoiding it if possible, but i do love these geraniums.

Friday Fictioneer

Wrapped like a mummy, nothing visible but a nose. Rustling sounds outside keep us awake.  We know it is nothing dangerous, a chipmunk or squirrel, but the sounds are foreign, just enough to keep us alert. Time passes, a few whispers, a few giggles, a shush from the next tent over.  The cold seeps in the tent flap, we scoot together to stay warm. Oh no! The cold… We have had too much soda as we reveled in the freedom of the first long summer camping trip of the year.  Thank goodness the moon lights our way into the trees.

#photoadayapril 4/11/2012 – where i ate breakfast

another from the archives… i haven’t eaten breakfast here in a long time, but there are few better places to eat breakfast than sitting by a campfire on the Current River.  camping with my parents is something i love to do, but since we try to time our vacations with holidays to get the most family bang for our buck, the camping trips are few and far between.. not many want to camp along the river for Thanksgiving dinner 🙂

#photoadayapril 4/10/2012 – cold

a little bit of snow

winter pond

i live in southern california so cold is a happily distant memory from when i lived in the northeastern part of the US. however, i was visiting family in February, and the weather was lovely the whole time i was there, a bit chilly but nothing crazy, then we woke up one morning to this, i dragged myself out of bed before the sun had really started it’s business and took some pictures in the grey morning light.  i particularly liked these 2 pictures.  the best part is that by afternoon while the sun had come out and started melting things we still had a few little flurries and made for a nice walk with the beagle doggies
