Use the Mr. Linky to link in after you have your post up, and please link back to my blog. I will have the link and post up on Tuesday nights, so our friends in different parts of the world can participate if they like.
This week, I want to share my love for nature...being in the outdoors...and paying attention to things around you in everyday life...stop and smell the flowers sorta way. I love spending time outdoors, soaking up the sunshine, smelling the flowers, planting a garden..so naturally I like to look to the outdoors for photo opportunities.
If you look closely, at this photo, you will see a beautiful red heart. I took this photo in the fall this past year. My husband and I had just left a restaurant where we eat lunch most Saturdays. On our way out the door, I noticed the trees in the parking lot were very pretty with lots of fall color, and we stopped for some quick photos. I love this picture. The leaf had already fallen off the tree and was sitting on the green ground cover. Nothing like found hearts!
Here is another example of hearts in nature. Sorry to disappoint you, but I did not find this pine cone already poised for a picture, but the example is there. The seeds do form a heart, and it does make for a interesting photo.
My very favorite place in the world is Cripple Creek Colorado. In February, The Cripple Creek Ice Festival takes place in this mountain town. Here is one of the ice sculptures...shaped in a heart.
Lined up, all along the street are wonderful ice sculptures formed from blocks of ice, and demonstrations are taking place by the local artist. It is lots of fun and a beautiful sight to see all the wonderful works of art from ice nestled in the mountains of Colorado.
We usually enjoy the Ice Festival during the weekend we celebrate my husband's Birthday in Colorado. Here is a picture I took from last year....and today (2-17) is my husband's birthday...So if you would, wish him a Happy Birthday with me....Happy Birthday!! Oh, and he is really having a good time, even if you would not know it by the look on his face when I took this photo! Gotta love it! And yes, it was as cold as it looks that evening.
Have a great Wednesday everyone, check with the other participants for their post about Love on Wednesday.....it is a lot of fun.
I want to thank each and everyone of you who have emailed me over the past week with concern for my well being....You have touched my heart so much. I continue to be amazed by how in touch so many of you are and your genuine concern for me and why I am not showing up everyday or where I have been. Things really are hectic right now, but I will be back on track soon! You guys bring so much to my life...you have no idea! And that is Love on this Wednesday!
