Wordy Wednesday: Summer Blues

The middle of July finds me reflecting on the fact that half of my summer is gone! Most of you know, it has been a very different summer for me as I recover from foot surgery, spending almost two months in a cast. Prior to the early June surgery date, I spent a few weekends …

On the Edge of Unusual

Today I am catching up with my own Sunday Stills photo challenge. I missed the first two weeks in June due to travel and foot surgery, while Hugh graciously hosted.

Sunday Stills: #Gates to Fun

Today’s photo challenge is that indeed, at least for me. I had a whopping total of five gates in my vast digital photo file, including one I had posted over 4 years ago!

Sunday Stills: A Plant’s Life

Thank you to Betty Louise, at Idaho Bluebird, whose blog I have followed for several years. She suggested the theme “plant life” for this week’s Sunday Stills photo challenge. I am enjoying a wonderful weekend in San Diego attending my brother’s wedding. Today’s shots of plants and flowers are mostly associated with the San Diego …
