This picture was taken back in October when we visited Zion National Park.  Can you see the people walking  in the area?

They look like tiny specks on this huge area of a rock platform.

leaf heart

This heart caught my eye as I walked back to my house from the mailbox, which is across the street.

I had to run inside to get my phone so I could get a picture of it.

It happens to be a leaf that has been pounded into the asphalt by cars and people that go by.  If you look closely you can see the stem and veins of the leaf.

I’m hoping it’s a sign of good things to come.

room with a view

This was our view from the house we stayed at during our trip to St. George, Utah.  The mountains were gorgeous. 💜❤️💜❤️

garden 3

Last week we finally had some rain. My plants in my garden were rejoicing.  After a  summer of scorching sun rays they’re glad for any coolness they can get.

Even though the garden is a mess because it was too hot for us to  weed and take care of our garden duties, there are still some pretty blooms to enjoy.

I’m loving my Cosmos, but for some reason they are all coming out the same color.

A few of my roses still look pretty.

And my Pentas are still feeding the humming birds.penta

Each morning I take a little walk through my garden anxious to see any new flowers and I’m always surprised to find a fresh bloom.

💜❤️💜❤️

PS. For whatever reason I am not able to comment on a few of the blogs that I follow.  I can like a post on my reader roll, but not on the actual post, so I just want to let you know that I am  still reading the posts and enjoying them.

 


dinkey 2 2018

This is where we usually go to spend some time while camping, it’s called Dinkey Creek.  It’s been my favorite spot for many years and my family shares my love for it.

I love the picture because of the reflection of the sky in the water.

The water was very cold but that didn’t stop us from getting in.

Standing on a bridge that runs over the creek I took this picture of the grandkids enjoying the icy water.

One of the favorite attractions at Dinkey Creek is the natural rock slide that kids as well as adults love sliding  down into the clear water at the bottom.

I can’t wait till next summer!

littlefield house austin

When our cousins drove us through the University of Texas we passed by this beautiful mansion.   We asked her to stop so we could take some pictures.

It belonged to a prominent citizen of Austin, George Littlefield who bequeathed it to the university.

Unfortunately it is not open to the public, but is used by the university for different functions.

As we continued to take our pictures two workers were passing by and mentioned that it is known to be a haunted mansion.

❤️💜❤️💜
