Some things are universally excepted as beautiful. Bright yellow flowers tend to make us smile.
This photo was taken Jan 14, 2012. My Daffodils were already in bloom. They are not out yet this year, but just looking at this photograph makes me warm.
Botany is not my area of expertise I have no idea what this lovely little flower is called. It was growing in Charleston SC.
I know what these are, the dogwood grows in my front yard. The tree is bare right now, but when spring finally arrives, it will amaze us once again.
This photo pleases me on many levels. It appeals to my eyes, and it brings warmer days to mind. Can't you just here the buzzing? Our wild bees left us last year in search of a new hive. We still see plenty of bees, but it isn't quite the same.
This photo may not be what my photographer friend refers to as "Tack Sharp" but sometimes the beauty is not in the photograph itself, but in the feelings it invokes. I was walking down to the mailbox early one morning last spring and I heard birds singing. I looked up to see this traveling choir. I was transfixed. I must have stood there listening for ten or fifteen minutes before I even thought to use the camera I was holding in my hand (yes, I carry a camera when I walk down to check the mail, don't you?). When I look at this picture, I can step into that magical moment once again.
I pass under this mistletoe every time I leave home. My Sweet Husband always kisses me goodbye standing under it. Maybe that is part of our secret. We have been together for a very long time and amazingly, we are still very much in love. Mistletoe and moonlight make me think of him.
This old barn is kind of a trademark for the blog. It is so very photogenic year round. You can see the back of the barn from the main road for most of the year. The house hides a little better and is really only visible when there are no leaves on the surrounding trees. I can almost smell the summer here.
I do not know this fine feline's name. We spotted her on duty in front of one of Charleston SC's fine old houses. She seems to be taking her duties seriously.
Reflections of the past.
This window is part of a building that is being restored. So the picture shows promise for the future too.
The future holds another post like this one, so if you enjoyed it, stay tuned.
I hope you find beauty in your day too.
