Under The Sea

When I saw these photos from our friend Angie in Devon, England I immediately thought of the cartoon, “The Little Mermaid”. These photos are from an aquarium in her physician’s office of all places! So here are these beautiful colorful fish though Flounder is missing!

Lovely colors of the ‘coral’ etc. and the fish!

Hmmm…wondering if it’s safe to go out

Thankfully this beauty decided it was safe so we could see his beautiful blue!

Whoever chose these colors was certainly thinking bright and happy

Love the little fish to the left….such a gorgeous, happy aquarium!

December Sky

This photo was taken years ago by my friend in his front yard. It was taken with a Canon digital camera.  Due to long term eye issues I have NOT been here to post anything in a very long time and need to be careful even now not to overuse my eyes. This photo however needed very little editing….just a little tweak here and there with a new free software program I have.  This photo was taken in Marshfield, Wi. and I really love the sky, the trees and the little bit of snow on the ground. Enjoy!

Tribute To A Friend

Back home I had a good friend. We met at the church we worked in…. I as a paid employee, he as a volunteer. His name was Jose and he was 3 years older than me. He was a fun loving guy. He loved kids, traveling, events with people, birds and painting. He was totally the opposite of me and yet we became the best of buddies. Neither of us had family in the state we lived in so he would come to my tiny place on holidays (he lived in the suburbs and drove, I lived in the big city and did not) if he did not fly home. Because I had become disabled, he always brought our meal and dvd’s to watch. The other night I got an email from his best friend telling me that Jose had died peacefully in his sleep on his 61st birthday. Heartbroken doesn’t even begin to tell you how I feel.  My buddy Jose was a good man and I always missed him after I moved out of state. Here are some of the photos he sent me from some of his trips in the U.S. and abroad. I use to call them The Many Adventures of Jose. I didn’t include many of the best photos because Jose was in them and I don’t believe it’s right to post photos of someone without their permission. So some trips in the states and out of the U.S. I can’t show you. This one’s for you buddy….see you on the other side.

The Bee And The Thistle

This happy little bee was enjoying the pink thistle growing in my friend’s yard in Marshfield,Wi!  Photos were taken with his iPhone last summer. I really enjoyed these photos and hope you did too. A chance to see their lovely delicate wings.

Quite content in the thistle

Bees have been dying out so it really is important to grow things to capture their attention

I didn’t know their wings were so delicate and lovely until my friend sent me these photos. Very pretty!

Barns I Love

The post title is kind of not entirely accurate as I love ALL barns but these barns I am featuring here, and in future posts, are ones I love just a little bit more! All photos taken by my friend in the Marshfield, Wi. area. I hope you love them as much as I do 🙂

Just an all around lovely barn with stone foundation

I love the setting of the barn here as well as the barn itself. It just says ‘country’!

I admit when I first saw the photo of this it kind of made my heart stop. The setting, the angle, the color….all these things made me go ‘wow’.

Color! That red roof on this beauty is something you don’t see often and I love the clouds in this one…..sort of makes a lovely colorful photo

Floral Fantasy

These assorted florals come to us once again from our friend Angie in Devon, England! I have never seen so many gorgeous flowers coming from one place. Angie lives on the coast of Devon. Wow….love it! There are many more flowers that I have that were sent to us by Angie and I will continue to share them and other photos from her and from us in the coming weeks and months.

I tweaked this one a bit to give it a slightly different look than the original

I love the intense color of these

This assortment is my favorite due to the colors and types

Another bright colorful photo. I really love all the types and colors

And finally, who can not love the beauty of a simple rose?

Family of Deer

My friend captured these lovely deer with his iPhone as he was driving by. Photos taken in Marshfield, Wi. Living in a rural area it’s nice to see the wildlife …something I never saw when I lived in a huge city! I personally have seen deer, wild turkey, bald eagle, badger and have heard black bear. We also have at times had reports of bobcat or lynx in the area. For me, a wildlife lover, it’s an extra bonus of living here 🙂

So pretty! One of the perks of rural living is coming upon scenes like these 🙂 Love those white tails!

Looks like something got everyone’s attention here!

It’s Tulip Time!

While it may not quite be tulip time here where I live, it definitely was in Devon, England recently. Our thanks to Angie for the use of her cheerful and colorful tulip photos! I didn’t grow up a fan of tulips but in my later years have come to appreciate their beauty, their early arrival and their different shapes and colors!

Love the little bit of contrasting color on this lone beauty and the contrasting colors of the surrounding flowers

These particular ones are my favorites for shape and color

Our final beauty is so cheerful and colorful as the colors are mixed.

Silos Sunrise

I must admit that I truly LOVE this photo sent to me by my friend. He took this in the Marshfield, Wi. area with his iPhone early one morning. There is something wonderful about the silos against the gorgeous sunrise!
