Making Lemonade?

As most of you know by now,I have not been able to get out much the last two weeks,because of an ankle injury,but that does not mean I couldn't take pictures.
They say that when life gives you lemons,make lemonade,well that is what I have been trying to do.The biggest lemon for me at this time is an injury,but another one is that the windows in my house need replacing.That said,the cold weather has left some amazing designs on my windows and today I want to share a couple with you.


 Too much time on my hands has 'forced' me to play with these images.I sent them through my Photoshop program and added some decorative edges.
 Here is another view of the ice flowers I see daily.These pictures have all been taken with the iPhone,by the way.
 Some of you,no doubt,have seen this one when I posted it to Facebook.Early winter mornings are so beautiful. I love the warm light on the snow covered lawn.
 Sitting at my breakfast table the other day and I noticed the Goldfinches were also having breakfast. The morning sunlight was so pretty on them. Try to look past the frost and ,just maybe some dirt on the window.

Here is one last picture to enjoy. The photo was taken last summer on my yard,but I added a creative element to it,by  using an App on the phone. The App is called LiPix,for anyone who cares to check it out on the App store.


Trying to find words to describe nature's beauty is like trying to measure the moon with a yardstick.

A Touch of Spring

March 1 and spring is just around the corner.
Last week a dear friend of mine came to spend part of the day with me,but she did so much more than that. She brought with her a touch of spring,in a bouquet of tulips. Because of my recent injury,I still don't do stairs really well and my laundry is downstairs,so she took care of the weekly laundry for me.What a blessing that was!

 It's a good thing the fall I had did not injure my trigger finger. Ha! Ha!
I made sure that bouquet of tulips was at a location where I could get lots of pictures,many of which were taken from my recliner. I should add that these shots were all taken with my phone,as that was the handiest most of the time.

Enjoy this beautiful touch of spring.







It was a small bouquet but it brought me huge joy.




A verse for today is:
How precious to me are your thoughts,O God!
How vast is the sum of them.
Psalm 139:17
