Tuesday Before Turkey Day

Well it is officially 2 days until Thanksgiving. For those of you who celebrate, I hope you all have a wonderful…and thankful day.

I have pretty much finished up editing and sharing the Michigan photos I took. I have only a few random places and happenings that I would like to share, sort of a photographic pot-luck. I am very eager to post some of the events and happenings that have been going on in sunny Florida. I Could not help throwing that fact in for my friends and readers who have been enjoying a recent bit of snowfall and chilly weather. Upcoming photos I am sharing will include the crystal clear waters of Alexander Springs, Florida and a few quick shots of the most recent food truck invasion to hit the Treasure Coast.

Today I am sharing photos of flowers. Nothing in particular just anything that caught my eye. Some photographs were taken along the way while on my trip and some I found on the grounds of friends’ homes. I have done my best to identify what most of them are…..but identifying them is timely and I wanted to share before the holiday. So if you see something you would like to know more about, I will do my very best to provide that information. As always I hope you enjoy!

What I Saw Today- 5/30

Hello Again Dear Reader,

       I hope that all is well with the world today.  It is the weekend again, and although that means much to some, for main stream America it is just another chance to catch up on everything we got behind on during the week. Not much has been happening in my life, and even less has been happening in the photo worthy opportunities area. So this week, not to be discouraged,  I grabbed my camera and set out to find something/anything to photograph. Florida is home to some pretty weird and unique plants and animals, especially birds, so it was not long before I stumbled on my first photo op. Here are a few quick clicks of a pretty sizable flock of vultures that I decided were worthy of an impromptu shoot. (A few other birds too).

      Lucky for you, I  quickly exhausted my camera battery on this flock of vultures because yes, I forgot to charge my batteries before embarking on my journey. So I had to sulk home and see if I could make anything good out of any of my photos. Oh sure I could have just stayed at home and posted the Colorado photographs I have been promising, but I did not. Who knew blogging would actually take time and effort?

     I will however get to them soon, very soon, but tonight let me leave you with these few late evening images of my favorite Royal Poinciana tree blooms. I do not know what it is about this forest beauty that keeps me coming back, but I hope you will accept them for what they are: A gift from me to you.

Happy Monday

Hello Again,

     I know that Monday usually does not bring to mind many happy thoughts, especially for those who work hard all during the week, but we are alive and for this I am truly grateful.

     I am still in the process of editing and posting photos of my Colorado trip, trying to break them down by city and I am also trying not too post too many photos at once…I know they can be hard to view otherwise.So in lieu of Colorado, today in 1derland we are going to take a little detour back to Florida’s Treasure Coast.

     This past weekend was Memorial Day, for those who celebrate, and although I did not attend any patriotic events (thanks to a wisdom tooth extraction), I did get a chance to visit one of my favorite places, the Atlantic Ocean. Starting with the IRSC Marine and Science Center, I snapped a few of the more picturesque things I saw today.


One of the most common sights to see on the water are the docks, this one in particular caught my attention, as did this super monstrous Ficus Tree overlooking the water. For anyone who has ever thought they might like a ficus….really zoom in there, this ficus will uproot the foundation of your house. 😦


I don’t know what it is about sunset on the water that brings to mind a peaceful easy feeling, but some days I could just spend forever here looking out over the water, and I envy the people who spend their days here fishing and enjoying their lives. Makes me almost want to buy a boat…almost.

Updating Colorado Photographs

Hello Again Dear Reader,

     I know it has been awhile, it takes time to pick and edit photographs, as I have so many photos that I want to share with you. I suppose I should just add one or two at a time, but that would take far too long, and I cannot leave even one out, I am so attached. Even so, as always I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I did taking them.
