Dreary Days and Vacation Wishes

The weather out is dreary. It makes me want to get away. Even going to the beach would be wet and dark, but there is something amazing about a coastal storm. The energy is uplifting and rejuvinating. Best wishes for an uplifting and rejuvinating weekend everyone!

Photo Theme Thursday - Music

A few years ago I was at a childs birthday party, and his parents bought him is first guitar. His grandfather immediatly took him aside and started to teach him the proper way to hold the guitar and the finger placement on the strings. A very touching moment, and appropriate for the Photo Thursday theme today, which is 'Music'.

Birds getting ready for winter

The sun peeked out a few times yesterday and this morning. I think this duck was stretching out to enjoy the rare warmth. Lately, it is getting more frequent to hear the geese overhead, flying south for winter. I hope to get a good picture of them this autumn. Too bad I get out of work after dark :(

Snow Berries

These inedible Snow Berries can be found all over, in clumps around damp, swampy areas (which are plentiful around her this time of year!). They usually bear the fruit in the late summer, and the berries hang around long after the leaves have left the plant. I took this picture before this happened, cause once the leaves are gone, its much less attractive to photograph ;)

This weekend I clipped down the rose bushes in my back yard in preperation for winter. But not before taking this one last picture of this late blooming rose. If only I could pass the fragrance of this beautiful rose along with the image ... ;)
