More trees with leaves.


Soon there will be no leaves left on the trees because of windy weather and then comes the cold weather.  
Fall is my favorite time of year.

This week I am posting a dragonfly, who we need around to take care of mosquitos.   Boy, in my opinion, this is the worst year.   I am even getting bitten during the night while I'm sleeping.   Not fair!   But who said life should be fair?

Fox dens on Lac Court Oreilles, Hayward Lakes Area, Wisconsin - 2013.

Can you believe it?   This is the first fox den I have ever seen.   I was in awe.   Just wondering if on the 4th of July these fox will be watching the fireworks explode on the lake or be hiding in the fox holes afraid of the noise or out looking for food in the forest.

Happy Fourth of July from our house to your house.

"Here's a message to the new borns, waiting to breathe: if you believe then you can achieve. Just look at me, against all odds 'though life is hard, we carry on, livin' in the projects, broke with no lights on. To all the seeds that follow me- protect your essence, born with less, but you still precious."

Pink Saturday - June 29th




If you would like to post or view blogs who have posted images for PINK SATURDAY click here:  http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/.  Thank you Beverly for being the hostess.



Rains a lot in the mid-west then turns sunny for awhile and then decides to pour some more.  Somehow during these blasts of rain and hot sun this clematis managed to bloom.     Look at this miracle of miracles.  Do you believe it... and of all colors the bloom is PINK.    I am happy!

My favorite holiday is 4th of July.  Folks gather around to share food, conversation and then fireworks.    I like this holiday best because there are no presents and everyone still has a blast.

Happy Fourth of July from our house to your house.

Quote 632 Thich Nhat Hanh

"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black, curious eyes of a child - our own two eyes. All is a miracle."
...Thich Nhat Hanh

Hwy #27


My husband and I got into the car and drove until we saw a potential skywatch shot.   I know this is against the rules but I had to catch it.   He stopped the car.  I turned on the camera and kneeled in the middle of the road then took this shot.   I heard cars coming fast took another image just in case the other one didn't come out.   I ran to the car and thought safe at last and whoop pi!

Hello!   If you would like to participate of view blogs who have posted PINK things click here:  http://howsweetthesound.typepad.com/my_weblog/.   Thank you Beverly for being the hostess.


This PINK roof and PINK window and door frame really caught my eye.   It is an abandoned house in Curacao.  This home must have a lot of stories to tell.
