Late Night Musings

Hello! Y’all have been on my mind a lot lately. I am swamped in studies, writing, deadlines, clients, etc. (and loving every minute of it) but I’m getting anxious to get back to a routine that allows me the freedom to blog and “chat” with folks around the world. Despite the heavy demands of studies and work, I do manage to get out at least once a week to soak in nature–breathe the fresh air, walk through the forest, linger beside a lily pond, listen to the birds chirping–and be rejuvenated. Since it has been a while since I’ve shared photos, I decided to post a few for your enjoyment. These were taken this summer in Kentucky and Ohio. Enjoy. 🙂


Weekly Photo Challenge: Together


Blossoms clustered together . . . lovely!

Nuttin But Orchids Orchids Orchids!

Now that I’ve had a chance to go through the photos and do some editing, here is what I went to the Cleveland Botanical Gardens to see!

Good Morning!

Shot from my bedroom window this morning, as I lay in bed no less! And this is with no embellishment!

Then when I walked into my living room and looked out the door, this is what I saw. Again, no embellishment.

Then, as I sipped a freshly brewed cup of coffee, I browsed through some of my photos and this is some of what I saw.

I am totally in awe of G-d’s handiwork.  Totally.

Nice way to begin what promises to be a very busy day.  Hope your day goes well and that you, too, will have ample opportunity to enjoy the awesomeness of life and living.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Flowers

Well, I don’t know how to go about this one since flowers are one of my favorite subjects to photograph.  I have hundreds of photos. I’ll try to keep it short.

I won’t post anymore photos this week.  Hope you enjoy these.

Today’s Hot! (Weekly Photo Challenge: Hot)

It is too hot to go outside.  WAY too hot.  I wanted to get some shots for this week’s challenge however, and my daughter’s photo prodded me to go this route.  We have an indoor/outdoor thermometer. The top number is the temp out on our balcony, the middle number is the temp inside our apartment, and the bottom number is the time of day (in this case morning).  We are headed for another scorcher!

But, I also have photos of flowers that were shot in July–oranges, reds and yellows–all hot colors. Soooo, I’m sharing those as well:

Personally, I can handle “hot” flowers much better than “hot” temperatures.  I hope you are managing to enjoy your summer, and finding ways to keep cool!
