My happy place is being outside in nature with my hubby, Frank! I’m also happy when I’m with my kids and grandkids but haven’t seen 2 of my 3 kids and none of my grandkids since January of this year due to the pandemic. I get to Facetime with them, but that is it. So for this challenge, I will stick to what I do when I can’t be with them physically.
The feature image is the best and only photo I have of signs of fall. It was taken last September in Bozeman, Montana. In Florida, we don’t get the change with the red, orange & yellow until January when much of the rest of… Continue Reading “Sunday Stills – Fall Color Ochre – 10.11.20”

Nature is a broad realm of the natural, physical and material things existing in our world and/or universe. It is a wide spectrum of living and non-living entities.

There is so much to explore that we can’t see it all in a lifetime, but I can share a few things that I have experienced in my few years on Earth.
It has been 2 years since we have seen a flower, but we haven’t stayed up all night to wait for one either. This one was still in full bloom by the morning 2 years ago, making it the last flower we have seen from this plant. Rare capture!
