A Lovely Letter

When I’m looking for “L” words, this song ALWAYS come to mind. It’s funny how you can have an association with a certain song and no matter how many years go by, I start singing, “La La La La lemons…”

Although Ernie and Bert gave me some great ideas for L words for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, I’ll stick with the ones I’ve shared below!

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Pets

Our dog, Ari, is the star of Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Pets this week. Ari entered our lives when she was less than a year old and now she is a mature lady of 8! She is affectionate, impertinent, obnoxious, nurturing to her baby (Beej), loyal and determined. Her personality is so much larger than her 25 lb body and it’s hard to remember a time when she wasn’t with us. She makes us laugh. She has given us heart failure when she has gotten lost (2 times). For such a small pup, she takes up a huge place in our hearts.

“Happiness is a warm puppy.” -Charles M. Schulz


Have a great day!

This week’s Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Letter K allows us to use any word with K in it- and how could I pass up the chance to use these photos on Halloween?

Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Farm Related

Upon seeing that this week’s theme was all things farm related for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: All Things Farm Related,  I almost resorted to pulling out the Fisher Price farm and animals for a photo shoot, but luckily we have visited some farms in recent months and I was able to get photos of some of the more friendly inhabitants.

This cutie seemed to love the camera and posed every chance he got!

bw goat 1
This fellow seemed mildly amused at our interest in him.

Apparently it was just too exhausting to even lift his head so he settled on lifting one ear.

This gentle soul was trying to discreetly squeeze her way out of her pen.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Fun or Flowers

“Just living is not enough…. one must have sunshine, freedom and a little flower.” -Hans Christian Andersen

“Every flower is a soul blossoming in nature.” -Gerard De Nerval

My family is full of people with green thumbs. My grandfather had a small greenhouse off the back of his house and I remember peaking in there and staring in amazement and everything he could grow. He had tons of books about all sorts of plants. and this was such a small part of who he was. My mother and siblings have gardens and their homes are full of lush green plants.

I love beautiful flowers but the green thumb gene passed me by. I am the killer of all plants. To make up for my lack of talent in growing plants, I hope to improve my flower photographing skills. Maybe I can keep them alive in that way.
