And I'm Back

No, I didn't fly away. 

But I did like this image which was just as I saw them in the evening sky. 



I just took a break to think about how I would proceed. 

Sometimes we just need to rest, either mind or body and sometimes both.




Waiting for the sun to set one evening, I saw these leaves highlighted by the late day sun.



A drive through the valley is usually filled with new photo opportunities. I wish these Wild Turkeys had been closer.



Early spring, brings the first blooms to my shaded garden. The Tulipa Tarda, are so much prettier than their name.


To Think About:

Father, show me how You’ve gifted me and how I’m to use those gifts for others.

I've never seen tulips like these, they are so pretty. And the leaves are like jewels! The planes look a bit too close for comfort! I like your new header.

Your "To Think About" is my prayer too. Dave and I are in transition at a new church and we want to know what to do and what our ministry is to be.
I'm so glad you are back. Your lovely photos brighten my day. Love the contrails!!
