Little grasshoppers of different sizes hopped away when I tried to take their portraits.They seemed grateful that I didn’t pursue them. It was early in the morning and the light was dim. I felt grateful to get a couple of photos that weren’t blurred.

~ Mother Teresa Flashback Sunday, December 23, 2012 – This is my pick photo for today and it stars fungi growing on the half dead aspen next to my front porch. Flashback Monday, December 23, 2013 – This is my pick photo for today and it stars this evening’s sunset 🙂 Tuesday, December 23, 2014 – Last night it got cold enough to freeze the inside and outside of my vehicle and not all of the hail melted! It was a most excellent day for ice crystals 🙂 “when it feels coldest
a fragile beauty may grow
for some eyes to see”

“When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.”
~ Fred Rogers Our hearts give thanks for the Grace in the Universe!

“The best way to cheer yourself is to try to cheer someone else up.”
~ Mark Twain Flashback Friday, December 14, 2012 – This is my pick photo for today and it stars the little hazel brachts that held nuts on my hazel tree. Flashback Saturday, December 14, 2013 – This is my pick photo for today and it stars a robin and two smaller birds in a neighbors’ tree. Sunday, December 14, 2014 – We had a little snow this morning that melted as swiftly as it fell. The most beautiful flakes turned to water before I could capture them. I was happy to get portraits of a few 🙂 “It was only a sunny smile, and little it cost in the giving, but like morning light it scattered the night and made the day worth living.”
~ F. Scott Fitzgerald “falling softly down
yes it is really winter
hurry catch the flakes”
