Monday Up Close

Thought I would share a few more photos from our summer trip.  These were taken in a small roadside area that is maintained by individuals it appeared.  The park was near Door County, Wisconsin.  Hope this brings some sunshine to another Monday.

Migrations and Skies

I am so very new to all things birds.  I did not know that hawks migrated till recently.  Sitting on the patio I looked up to see streams of larger birds swirling southward.  They were almost out of camera shot by the time I came back outside.  One should always be wearing a camera.  Well, no really good closeups but still.  It was an amazing sight, just would that these were clearer to share with all you folks.  Today’s skies were too rain filled, four inches in only a couple of hours, to attempt to shoot photos.

Softly Falling


Light falls softly on the new blooms in the shade.  Blossoms on a Shamrock given to me several years ago by a dear friend.


The plant sits in a basket another cherished  friend brought to me. Memories fall softly on my heart as I think of my friends back in Missouri.


Lives entwined softly falling through time.

Join all the joy of seeing life up close by visiting I Heart Macro and Macro Monday 2.
