Wild Roses and Sunsets

It has been quite a while since we last met here on the blog.I have been busy getting more pictures and just living life.


On June 9th,would have been my Hubby and my 46th wedding anniversary.Of course,I do not celebrate this day, except to remember the good times. Well,this year,God had a surprise for me.
Many years ago,Jake dug up a Wild Rose for me and planted it on the yard.It never amounted to anything and I was ready to cut it down.Well,this year on June 9th,I walked outside and saw that this little shrub had several blooms on it.What a special treat that was!


It looks like the bumble bee was also enjoying this treat.


Steve has a lens ball and I got to try it out.It gives an interesting perspective.


Of course looking toward the sky usually yields some photo worthy sights.


Not too long ago,I was able to capture this images the sun was about to set.

Something to Think About:
Whatever your age, just keep blooming.
