Early spring flowers bring smiles to many faces. The rose always gives a fresh fragrance to the air as you walk by. The yellow water lily is in our fish pond. I spent a lot of time trying to get a picture of this bumble bee. He finally stopped long enough in an area for me to get a picture. So this bumble bee brought a smile to my face.
Even as the leaves fall and some limbs become barren, the beauty of the woods remain. There is still dark red, golden yellow and brown leaves. The twisted limbs and vines, have a beauty that I think is very attractive also. You just cannot improve natural beauty.
This shows where he is in the picture.
We have a Red Fox Squirrel family that remains year after year in the same area of our yard. We now regard them as our wild pets and enjoy watching them from inside our home. They are beautiful. A couple of years ago, I shared this same photo that I took of the colorful fall leaves. I realized I actually had a picture of the squirrel hidden amongst the leaves. See if you can find him. I have a photo to post Wednesday showing where he is.

Standing alone it was. so sturdy and colorful. My husband took this picture for me with his cell phone, knowing that I would be delighted. I have always been amazed at the coloration and stages of mushrooms. This one is no exception to that. But I know it will not last long.
Simple expressions of kindness can leave lingering thoughts of happiness and pictures of beauty.
Flowers grown by a friend
Actions and expressions can brighten someone’s day.
Knowing not what to say, often brings silence.
Fall is here!
Reflecting back to early summer, I remembered taking pictures of my peony bush. I love the peony bloom. This year for the first time, I noticed how beautiful the bloom is as it is loosing all of the petals.
Outer Petals gone
Inside of Peony bloom
Even when all petals are gone the peony bloom is still beautiful. A tribute to the beautiful life lived by a friend of mine.
