Brenda's Photo Challenge...

{ Please click on photos for a wonderful view}
I took this photo of a tobacco flower on crushed orange brick.. The tobacco flowers are ethereal in the way the float silently from the trees to the ground.

I stood under the branch of the tobacco tree one day for a few minutes just to watch them fall...

These Lilies are in my yard. I love the bright orange of the lily and the wonderful contrast of the yellow center and the green foliage.

The colors are married to one another in magnificence...

Go to Donna's Made in Heaven for links to the other participants. I am a bad blogger. I don't have the photo challenge links done yet on my favorites. I am doing it this week, I promise. Smile..

I forgot to add that Joni from Morning Coffee is hosting the challenge this week..The theme is orange. Orangecha glad I didn't say banana? Ha! Joni is an absolutely wonderful person, and so creative.. please check her site out.

I read a quote once that said, "Sometimes the most poignant people in life are the tragic ones." I think it is true.

Blackbird in White...

This is a photo I took today while at the park.
I sat alone, and ate my lunch in the car while it rained.
Sadness overwhelmed me again today, being Sunday and all.
But, I looked over, and there was a Blackbird sitting in the middle of the road. He cocked his head and looked at me. His yellow eyes staring at me.
It was an odd feeling..But it comforted me. I snapped a picture of him and ran it through photo shop.
I really liked the affect..
Hope you like it.
Today's song, Old Man by Neil Young

I pray for hope and peace today for anyone who needs it. And for you to know you are loved by someone who is greater than us all....I send my prayers on Angel's wings ..

About Me

My photo
I love beauty, whether it is in nature, literature or art. And I love music... My day feels incomplete if I haven't had a chance to listen to some good music.. I also love beautiful souls, and kind hearts.
