When it’s cold outside give your animals a little more somp’im somp’im.
One of my White Leghorns was enjoying his greens in the freezing snow and rain.
Where has the blue sky gone ?
Just wet, dark, & cold here in Cville, VA… this photo taken last week.
Forsythia amazes me. I’m not sure how this little bloom is hanging on through the freezing weather, but it is!
Photo taken last week in Charlottesville, Virginia on Forsythia Hill.
The most scenic farm in Charlottesville, Virginia complete with Texas Longhorn Cattle! Who would have thought such a breed would be way up here!
Spotted on Garth Road.
I spotted this mysterious door when in Staunton, Virginia.
I love the evidence tape… and HOUSE.
Thanks goodness for reruns. Didn’t get interested until then.
On a freezing cold day like today I like to remember warm colors of Summer.
These Daylilies in Claire’s Garden were amazing (she is in the green shirt in the background). She propagated this variety of Daylily!
Fifty years ago, my Granddaddy owned a Dairy Farm in Southwest Virginia. This is the last barn on our farm. I have stared at this sign forever and hopefully one day can bring it to my house to hang. The wood is amazing.
I love old barns!
I’m getting ready to list this vintage 1980s Wedding Dress in my Etsy Shop. We always have fun during our shoots. This is my first attempt at shooting a Wedding Dress!
That second shot just makes me laugh every time I look at it.
Bob’s Garden, my Father-in-law, this past Summer looking out from inside his darling little shed that he built with spare windows and doors.
When we moved into our home we had no idea that Hot Air Balloons made their regular trek over our house! In the Fall it’s a common sighting as they always land within walking distance.
We’re very lucky to live in a place that is so beautiful that people pay to ride over it and gaze. Virginia is a special place!
The Falconer by George Blackall, 1875, Central Park, Manhattan, New York City. Someone swiped the bird and the statue was temporarily removed in 1957 for repair. It’s one of my favorite statues in Central Park and is perfectly tucked among rocks and trees.
The greatest birder of all time is Phoebe Snetsinger. When she was diagnosed with terminal cancer in 1981 she ventured to Alaska on her “farewell to life” birding trip. She never died of cancer and enjoyed Eighteen more years of spotting a total of 8,500 species before she died in a accident in Madagascar (of course while on a birding expedition).
White Winter Anemones in the Heather Gardens, Fort Tryon Park on the way to the Cloisters Museum in Upper Manhattan, New York City.
What a treasure these gardens are!
Standing inside one of the many rooms in the Medieval Castle at the Cloisters in Upper Manhattan, New York.
This was one of 2 beautiful windows in that room that looked out into the forest surrounding the building.
