Sunday Snaps


Hey gang,

I’ve been really un-inspired lately in the photography department. I literally am itching for spring when things will be growing, and birds swooping around so I can get it all on film. I love going for a walk and snapping pictures outside, but the weather lately has been either freeeezing, or raining. Even light can inspire me, but when its so grey out there is no interesting lighting situations going on. Hmph! I will get back on track soon. They say it will be an early spring! So for today’s snaps I thought I’d go flower crazy and post a pile of my favourite floral snaps taken throughout the years. I know it sounds kind of corny but I’m pretty sure flowers are one of my favourite things to photograph. Enjoy!!!!

and some crows…for good measure..

Enjoy hanging out on your Sunday!!! I am off to the library to hang out in the kids section…anyone have any amazing book suggestions for a group of kids ages 5-7? Let me know!!!

  1. I LOVE your photos!

    I have many children’s books—most of them older, and some classics. One I was raised on is WHO GOES TO THE WOOD, by Faye Inchfawn. The English author wrote this charming bit of English country fiction from her home not too far from London during WW II, when bombs were exploding there. A testimony to the fact that the gentle, lovely life can and will go on somehow. Many British authors are especially good at portraying the gentle, lovely life. The book is filled with whimsy as well, and I re-read it on a regular basis as well as sharing it with grandchildren and now great-grandchildren.

    The story is anthropomorphic–the animals are “people”, and so much like real people! That is one of my favorite kinds of literature for children and adults. You will not find this treasure at your library (at least probably not!) but copies are normally available on http://www.AbeBooks.com/ or Amazon.

    And of course another all time favorite is Grahame’s THE WIND IN THE WILLOWS. That should be in your library. It’s another classic for all ages. And, also English. Our friends across the pond have a handle on literature, language, and drama. If only Americans could follow their example and write literature rather than the dumbed down fare dished out many of our schools today!

    Hope that helps! Margaret Been, http://northernreflections.wordpress.com/
