I've been at it for so long that I think I have used up most of the interesting post ideas. And since it is winter here and I'm a sissy about being out in the rain, snow, sleet and hail, I don't have any fun, new photo's to post. So I went searching through my photo folders and pulled out a few I hope you will enjoy.

This one was taken in 1960 when I lived way out in the county. The early morning sun on the new fallen snow was just beautiful.
Here is my little flowery cottage before we remodeled and painted. Oh how I wish I could have flowers like this now. Unfortunately we have a serious overpopulation of deer and they eat everything right down to the ground.

I love this picture my daughter took for me of the desert in bloom. I love the desert and never cease to be amazed at the incredible color the Lord brings out of it.

This picture was taken on a car trip from Duluth MN to Bellingham WA. We took the long way around so we could see other places. As we drove along the highway I saw this from a distance and couldn't make out what on earth it was. When we got closer I could see all the cars and a sign explaining it is called Carhenge.

Here's more of my flowers. I'm so glad I have the pictures to enjoy. I planted lots of seeds and plants but also kept whatever wild flowers happened to be growing in the gardens. The tall flower stalk with the purple bell shaped blossoms on the top is Foxglove. This is the plant Digitalis is derived from.

This is the little house that my grandfather and great grandfather built, and where my father was born. I believe the woodshed that looks like it's falling down was also built by them. Actually the shed was being torn down. I visited this place a few times and can't explain the odd feeling I got as I walked through the grassy fields and sat inside the tiny house visiting with the present owner.

Here's a few funnies to put a smile on your face.

I hope you all have a blessed weekend.
