Beauty All Around

As most of you are already aware, I tend to post pictures that have been captured some time ago. Oh well, The content is still something that caught my eye, so wether taken today or a month or two ago, it doesn't matter.


Many times I don't even have to leave my yard to find a beautiful scene. This greeted me one morning as I looked out of the door.



Sometimes, the birds actually cooperate with me, as this Upland Sandpiper proves. The warm evening light was just perfect.



When the Wild Roses are in bloom, I must capture more images. I think this is such a pretty flower and the fact that Jake dug up the original little plant for me, makes it even more special. Oh, and having the wasp/bee visit at just that moment was also good.



The east shore of Lake Minniwasta is about a two mile drive from my house, so I go there often. Many evenings the sunset is just that, a sunset, nothing spectacular, but occasionally it is gorgeous.


I love how the wispy clouds turn a brilliant pink after the sun has set. Always some beauty to be found.


Something to Think About:

What  is down in the well of the heart,

Will come up in the bucket of words.

Lovely sunset pics! I'm a late poster too, so I don't mind if your photos aren't recent.

I love Wild Roses! We had white ones, and those are the only color I have ever seen.
