Friday Photos–Getting Away

One of the most relaxing, refreshing activities I can do is go for a walk on a nearby trail. I think one of the things that makes it relaxing is deliberately taking time to get away from problems–doing it right away, rather than something I’ll do “when I have time”.

The other thing that makes it relaxing and refreshing is simply God’s scenery, as displayed in these photos.

Friday Photos–Oldies but Goodies

Several years ago I went to an antique/classic car show, just to do something different. Here’s some photos from that day.  Do any of these bring back memories?

Friday Photos–Natural Sculptures

While walking in the woods behind our house several years ago, I was struck by the shapes and lines of these trees. They brought out some “art appreciation” in me, and I snapped some pictures.

I call this boulder the “House Boulder”.  I’m sure several creatures live in its shelter!

Friday Photos–More Flowers, More Colors

While the winter in my area hasn’t been a particularly bad one, it’s been long. If you, like me, are ready for more color, enjoy these photos of flowers, to add to last week’s collection, here. This week’s photos are from a nature park I visited one summer several years ago.

Friday Photos–Spring Flowers

Red Trillium

Trillium

Trillium grows in moist areas in woodlands. Around here it occurs in patches–where you see one, you see another close by. Sometimes the flowers are red; sometimes they are white. They brighten the otherwise green or brown surroundings.

daffodils-by-hill-in-front-of-house

Daffodils

I think of daffodils as “sunshine on a stem”. I brought some into the house to liven up a corner.

Friday Photos–Cats in the Country

Here are some “family photos” I thought cat lovers might enjoy seeing.

Black Kitty

Black Kitty, a feral cat who finally adapted to living inside

Pumpkin, Up Close and Personal

Pumpkin, on the swing beside me

Shorty cooling it

Shorty, in a very casual pose, beside his brother Pumpkin. Shorty looked pudgy, but he was all muscle, not fat.

Steffy, a portrait

Steffy, who didn’t come inside until she was six, but adapted well.
