Weekly Photo Challenge – Beginning…

The beginning...a point in time or space when something starts, a new experience.  A new dawn, a new day, a new life….beginning

The Lord’s love never ends; his mercies never stop. They are new every morning; Lord your loyalty is great.  Lamentations 3:22-23

2014 52 Week Photo Challenge…1/52: Goodbye

As we look forward to the new year and all of its possibilities we must pause for a moment and think on all that the past year was and wasn’t…Then it is time to say Goodbye!  Although 2013 wasn’t the blogging year I had hoped for it was a great year overall.

So to kick off the year with a blogging bang I have decided to host my first blogging challenge.  The 2014 52 Week Photo Challenge begins today with saying Goodbye to 2013.  I am looking forward to getting to know you and your part of the world through your interpretation of the challenge prompts.

A sunset is the only goodbye I look forward to…each one is beautiful in its own way and entirely unique.

At a loss…

I am at a loss…my thoughts have been stifled, my creative juices dried up, my fingers are frozen hovering over the keyboard…My spirit is willing but my mind is not a willing participant… total disconnect.  There is always hope that tomorrow will be filled with inspiration…

Happy Anniversary … To Me!

Image

You registered on WordPress.com 3 years ago! Thanks for flying with us. Keep up the good blogging!

It’s always nice to open up your snail mailbox and find a card or letter instead of the barge of bills or junk mail.  It’s also nice to open up your inbox and find an email from a friend you haven’t heard from in a while.  As nice as these little surprises are, they do not compare to opening up your blog and discovering that someone has remembered it is your blogging anniversary…Thank you WordPress for  all you do for the blogging community…Thank you for your tireless efforts to keep things fresh and exciting!  Thank you for creating exciting challenges and great looking blog templates.  And, thank you for remembering today is my 3 year blogging anniversary.

Let’s do this for another 3 years….just write!

Word a Week Challenge: Gardens

This blog was inspired by A Word a Week Photography Challenge.

Here is a tour of the gardens that have crossed my path…As I have wandered through each one my worries and burdens have been carried away as if on the wings of a butterfly.  Spending time in a garden, whether it is filled with flowers or vegetables, is one of the most peaceful places on this earth.

This is where it all started…with my parents love for a beautiful garden and my Dad’s very green thumb.

July 4th 2007 006

A garden from a previous home…very tropical!

105

Our current front garden filled with traditional southern heritage plants; plumbago, day lilies, rosemary, roses, azalea and camelias.

The Garden

Last years vegetable garden that produced so much, we ate all we could and shared the rest.

039

Here is a community garden, where members of the neighborhood adopt a parcel of land.  They can grow whatever they desire.  It is a mix of flowers and vegetables.

Frobergs 008

This is a much bigger garden that many visit during strawberry season.  Here at Froberg’s you pay for what you pick…the kiddos love it!

I love spending time in the garden, especially when it is full of color and good things to eat!

Travel Theme: Walls…Day Tripping on Street Art

On a day trip to the Houston Museum of Fine Art I took a detour…and stumbled upon these walls..the area where I snapped these photographs is referred to as Midtown.

In Houston and the surrounding areas we are plagued by vandals who use graffiti and tagging to “mark their territory”…This is different…This is Street Art!  Feel free to weigh in on my wall art!

Facebook is for keeping up with your friends and family, Twitter is for interacting with strangers, Linkedin is for professional networking…All I ever wanted to know about social media in one place. Great Post!

All of your friends subscribe to your blog, right? What about your coworkers? Your family members? Your classmates or former classmates? People who don’t necessarily know you, but work in your field? People who don’t know you at all, but like to mock the same celebrities you do?

Chances are, your social network is larger than you think it is. Luckily, these days, there are more ways than ever to reach people who share your interests, your pet peeves, and your sense of humor. Done well, social networking is the single best way to make friends and influence people on the web.
