For anyone who would like that summertime feel with bunnies included, here is an Etsy treasury I created today.
I hope everybunny is enjoying a wonderful day.
WordPress had suggested a photo challenge this week of worn and for me that just kept coming out as worn out. It has been a long and tiring week of on and off storms rolling through. For us that means powering down computer equipment a lot and then sometimes working late into the night trying to catch up.
When I am worn out, I love nature as a pick me up. This photo is sunshine and blue skies shining down through Georgia pines, the view you get laid out in a lounge chair or hammock. I hope you all had or have a chance today to kick back, relax and just look up at a beautiful sky. So relaxing!
Sleeping in the sunshine … This is the concrete cottontail that sleeps in the patch of fuzzy green rabbit ears that grows by our back door. The expression on this sleeping bunny’s face is so sweet, it always makes me smile.
In our garden we have many cottontail bunnies. Some of them are brown with fluffy white tails and we scare them off if we move too fast. Others are concrete cottontails that we have placed around our garden. This cute little guy is our first greeter for visitors walking up to our front door. I love the way the morning light is playing up the bushes on one side but still leaving our little friend some shadows to hide in and surprise people when they first see him.
Popping in quickly here this evening. We were with power and without power on and off as thunderstorms rolled through here this afternoon. That is a mixed blessing. We need the rain, but not being able to trust the power to use the Internet is hard when you have web based businesses!
Just some lighthearted fun today with a playful summer mood!
I don’t know the actual name of this rose, but the glorious colors remind me of a vivid sunset. I had a day I was particularly down about something that had really gone wrong with work. Blaine arrived home at the end of the day with a bouquet of these roses. Can we say, Awwwwww! I don’t even remember now what had me so down that day. The roses are the memory now. The colors were so spectacular that I had to take a picture to preserve the beauty.
This photo challenge was a tough one, I discovered I really don’t think in numbers and don’t really have things with numbers around me except clocks and calendars. However, I do have this print in my kitchen of a recipe and recipes are one thing I do go by the numbers. Here is the text of the Happy Kitchen print:
4 cups Love
2 cups of Loyalty
3 cups of Forgiveness
1 cup of Friendship
5 spoons of Hope
2 spoons of Tenderness
4 quarts of Faith
1 barrel of Laughter
Take love and loyalty, mix it thoroughly with faith.
Blend it with tenderness, kindness and understanding.
Add friendship and hope, sprinkle abundantly with laughter.
Bake it with sunshine. Serve generously daily.
I rounded a curve in the pond and took this picture of the ducks starting off swimming. From this direction, the water has changed to reflecting cool blues, deep greens and charcoals from the sky and trees.
Here is the second water reflection photo today showing how the first painted water image changes with the duck flapping its wings and moving the water.
