Weeds and wildflowers

I enjoy the variety of weeds and wildflowers that grow along our country road.  They add character and beauty to the landscape that can easily be overlooked.

“Even as kids reach adolescence, they need more than ever for us to watch over them.  Adolescence is not about letting go.  It’s about hanging on during a very bumpy ride.”  ~Ron Taffel


Cloud patterns

I enjoy looking at the pattern that the clouds make in the sky.  In the first photo, I think it looks like a dog riding on a horse.  The second photo reminds me of angel wings.

The sky, a perfect empty canvas, offers clouds nonetheless. They shift and drift and beg interpretation … such is the nature of art. ~Jeb Dickerson


A Yellow theme

On my walks this week, the yellows of this season as summer fades into autumn have really been popping out and catching my attention.  Here are a few photos from those country road walks.
