Back to Blogging

I feel like I have been away from posting for a long time.In fact it has been at least one week.
I know that I don't need to explain,but I was enjoying The National Quartet Convention,via live webcasts,from Louisville Kentucky.
I have never been there in person,but this was a very good substitute.
Anyway,I'm back with a heart that is overflowing with praise and good Gospel singing.


On September the 3rd,my sister,Becky and I went in search of a small lake we knew about.
Before we got there we noticed the start of the fall colours.
I love seeing these colours,but also know that when they leave,and they will shortly,it will be drab and bare until the snow comes.


This is Mary Jane Lake,or at least a part of it. It is really a decent sized lake and one which fishermen and boaters enjoy.
I liked this calm and peaceful scene.


Along the shores of the lake the wild asters were putting on a show.
I like these small,yet pretty flowers.Many insects were also enjoying the flowers.


Not to be outdone,the Goldenrod was blooming profusely. Purple and yellow seem to be the colours of fall in the wildflower realm.


 We saw several small Garter Snakes,but they were too quick for me to get any pictures.
This frog,on the other hand posed quite well.

For anyone interested here is a link to one song done at NQC.

  26. Love the frog. We used to have women's quartets that came to our church. Loved them. Dave, my hubby, would have been in heaven. He loves southern gospel.
