The long awaited growing flower bloom season came and went to quickly. But it was a successful season! Am pleased with it this year - I worked continuosly nearly every day turning over replacing and a little extending this year both beds! Yes! Hope you enjoy these little peeks of the growing season!
Be always at War with your vices,
at peace with your neighbors,
and let each New Year find you
a better person. Benjamin Franklin
May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions. ~Joey Adams
A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. ~Author Unknown
"An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in.
A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves."
May your 365 days a year be blessed in all things-in all ways with abundance of love, joy, peace, forgiveness,
By gones-be-By Gone....
Thank you very much for stopping by-God Bless-Happy New Year Cheers, Everyone!
A few fave pics from the last month or two & added a Road slide show
I planned for a couple days to go to Chester WV to find a location to take a photo of East Liverpool, OH. Drove a few back streets to find a suitable one. Actually there was a few spots but the view was foggy.
From one of those streets followed a road around a valley and came out in Newell WV. What a nice drive, I enjoyed the tree lined, creek, curvy roads. Sort of an amusement park feel but with better scenery! Took another side road & found a few abandoned buildings on top-with surrounding fields, What a lovely lovely setting! Have no idea why places like these look they were just up n left when its such an ideal place to live. For whatever the reason it made for photo opportunities, quite the excitement for me, to find it. I was tantalyzed & mesmerized by the scene and having become interested in history of general area, it left much to my imagination.
With recently downloading Topaz Labs' trial B&W Effects-I thought I'd try a few filter effects which seemed befitting for the scene.
The transitional difference of September. The beginning signifies the end of summer and the end signifies beginning of fall. A subtle & beautfiul transition. You see more fog as result of heat cooling and clashing with the warmth of the earth. Warms nicely in the day, cool-sometimes cold by morning! Even though fall is a beautifiul season, I can't help but think of after all the vibrant color, winter comes way too soon! Hope you enjoy the beginning & end of September.
