A Summer Walk Down Memory Lane

The calendar may be saying it's January,but for this post,I'm thinking summer.I hope you don't mind getting away from cold, snow and winter weather for just a little while.

The following are still pictures taken by Jake,before the time of digital cameras.
As I was scrolling through my photos,I saw these and just have to share them, for no other reason, than that I like how they look.


I am guessing at some of the locations.I do believe this is at Rainbow Falls in the Whiteshell.


I won't venture a guess on this location, but the deep colors are what drew me to it.


Again,I have no idea where this was.It looks like this couple, unknown to me and I'm pretty sure to Jake as well, were enjoying a leisurely ride down the river.



Look at the peaceful water and the reflections.So pretty.


This is at Rainbow Falls in Whitehall Provincial Park in eastern Manitoba.


This almost looks like the shore of Lake Minniwasta,but I've never seen a patch of flowers like this there.Now,considering that this was many years ago,I guess that could account for the flowers I've never seen.


Wild Monarda is delicate and pretty.This is likely in some rural roadside ditch.


I had better not give a name for these,cause I am just not sure.The purple and yellow sure do make for a nice picture.


I know what this is.This is a patch of Tansy.The small button like flowers are easy to identify.


Not only do I know what kind of flowers these are,but I also know the location.The red Painted Daisy among the white Daisies were growing right on our yard.

 All these lovely scenes are created by God,the Maker of this universe.We get to enjoy their beauty and try our best to capture some of that beauty with a camera.

Closing Thought:
The Maker of the universe is the helper of God’s people!

  1. I have never seen Tansy before, maybe they are not too common. They are amazing! Each of these pictures has it's own beauty. My favorites are the first two. They are, both literally and figuratively, brilliant.

  5. Beautiful photos! I especially love the peaceful lake scenes.

    I just now ordered a book by John Piper 'The Pleasures of God: Meditations on God's Delight in Being God'. Part of it is about God's creation. I was led to this book from a 'Desiring God' devotional this morning, 'Grumbling in Paradise - How to Break Through Discontent' Article by Scott Hubbard.

    I can hardly wait to get outside to work in my gardens this morning, praising God for all that He has created and blessed me with.

    Thank you again for yet another lovely post with beautiful thoughts ~ FlowerLady

    Love that last one with the white daisies blurred out to put the emphasis on the red ones.... NEAT.

  14. Ruth, beautiful images! Jake had the "Eye!" Several of your images tug at my heart strings. I grew up alongside of The Whiteshell. Did a huge amount of canoeing along the Winnipeg River and on into the park! It was a wonderful place to grow up. I remember it well!
