Post for Brendan – Newbie

Morning Brendan… and everyone! :)

I saw this new, dear little calf and his Mum this week and I thought of you… I love the funny, curious little look he was giving… and his little ‘milk mouth’… and his tail… hilarious! These little guys don’t often stand still long enough to be photographed.  Snap!!


Hope he makes you smile :) Have a fantastic week!

Monochrome Madness – week 28

It’s Monochrome Madness again and this week I wasn’t sure at all what I had to share as I haven’t been out and about a great deal… but I decided on this image… one I took about a week ago.

This is a photo of clover covered in ice crystals… I love seeing things like this!  Again, nature just amazes me… When I look at this image… I see a heart… a filigree heart… do you see it?

Be sure to pop on over to Leanne’s, Laura’s and the many other blogs that participate in this fabulous weekly challenge (all links found on Leanne’s site).. and as always – ‘Many thanks Leanne for all your efforts that make it possible’.


Post for Brendan – Bounty

Today, I’m starting a new series… On Tuesdays, I’m going to be posting especially for Brendan… and of course I want to share with you all too.

Hi Brendan! :)

Thanks so much for accepting my offer to share my photos with you!

I’ll take photos of whatever inspires me or makes me think of you… I hope to make you smile, to be encouraged and sometimes just to see the things that I see, through this window that is my blog.  Welcome!

Brendan’s story is his own and not mine to tell… What I hope to do here is simply ‘lend a hand’ in a quiet, friendly way.

Today’s image is a bit of silly fun.

We’ll meet again, friends.

Have a fantastic week! :)



Micro Dew

This morning I was out for a wander in the remnants of a frost, with ice turning to water.

Here is one of the things I saw… with a ‘touch’ of artistic license added regarding colour ;)


I’m always truly amazed at the things beneath our feet – the things we never know are there.

Edit: I should add – this tiny blade of grass was sitting in the shadows.. and even though this image is not full of light – I love that the droplets pick up some of the reflected light.


Monochrome Madness – Week 27

It’s Monochrome Madness again and today I want to share another flower with you.

This beautiful flower is part of a gorgeous bunch – and a lovely surprise gift to me, from my dear husband – a burst of colour amidst the very grey weather we’re having here.

I thought this image might translate well to monochrome…. I think it did :)


..and here’s the colour version..


Another week of Monochrome fun, thanks to Leanne and Laura.  Please make sure you visit Leanne’s blog to see all the entries for this week.


The Sky won’t snow and the Sun won’t shine..

Grey, grey, grey, grey, grey, grey, grey!!!!  It’s so hard to see colour on days like these…

Sky won't snow_Sun won't shine

The sky won’t snow and the sun won’t shine…

I heard these words this morning and thought… that’s exactly how it is… so even though these are not photo worthy days, I decided to capture that grey feeling…

It may be rainin’, but there’s a rainbow above you…

..and then I think back to only yesterday… another grey and rainy day… I saw the most magnificent rainbow I’ve ever seen.. a promise.. and I chose to stand and enjoy the moment instead of running for the camera.  It was beautiful and it made me smile. So rich and full of colour with a backdrop of the darkest sky.

Quoted words as I’m sure you know (for those of us who grew up when their music was everywhere) are from the Eagles song, Desperado.

Maybe I’ll see another rainbow this afternoon :)
