Sunshine

These photographs were taken at the end of September 2012.  It seems like yesterday that these sun beauties were glistening and inviting.  I have missed you all and hope you enjoy!

I took this picture that is located close to Hollis Garden and Lake Mirror outside a restaurant called, The Garden Bistro. They have several different varieties of roses that are gorgeous. This one is perfect for Summer! I hope you enjoy and thanks so much for stopping by!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth

This is an elderly duck that was sitting in solitude enjoying the breeze. I chose these for this week’s photo challenge because as we age from moment-to-moment we are all growing in age, spirit, and as our true self. I hope you enjoy these pictures. Thank you for stopping by!

You can check out other photographs that were entered in this week’s photo challenge and more about the challenge itself here!


FREEDOM

Spicebush Swallowtail: Photo taken in Lakeland, FL in July 2012. My heart was beating what seemed a million miles per second when I saw this raving beauty fluttering around without a care in the world. It seems a butterflies job is to create beauty in the world, and if you really observe, to make us humans realize how free we really are.  It’s the internal freedom that I strive for!  I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. Thank you for stopping by!

Angel Trumpets

We were leaving the garden and I spotted these Angel Trumpets on the way out. I had to turn around and drive back to get a shot or two. So gorgeous. I hope you enjoy. Thank you for stopping by!


For my Mom

My Mom picked this picture out! Elegant, just like she is.
