A Walk By The Lake On A Sunny Day ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

Today we got to enjoy a rare, gorgeous November day ๐Ÿ˜

Too beautiful to spend all of it inside. So we explored the area a bit, and discovered a beautiful lake, not far from our house.

Who knew? ๐Ÿ˜…

Here are some impressions of the lovely scenery…


The geese were very cooperative!
Here I tried to get them in flight…but they were too fast. ๐Ÿ˜„
It kinda looks like theyโ€™re dancing for me, doesnโ€™t it? ๐Ÿ˜Š
I love Sycamore trees ๐Ÿ˜
I do wish the trash cans werenโ€™t so bright ๐Ÿ˜†
On the way home – the clouds were moving in

I hope you enjoyed this little view of Kansas ๐Ÿ™‚

Until next time ๐Ÿ’•

โ„๏ธA โ„๏ธ Picture โ„๏ธ Perfect โ„๏ธ Morning โ„๏ธ

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

For days now the weather guy has warned us of the ‘Winter storm’ headed this way.

Well, when I took the dogs out last night, there wasn’t much of anything…even the grass still peeked through a light dusting. But when I went outside this morning, everything had changed. I was greeted by this view…

The owl is wearing a hat…

…and our ‘Welcome’ bear a mask – I wonder what he’s up to ๐Ÿ˜‹

The neighborhood kids got busy ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

For me there are not many things more beautiful than a snow-covered Pine Tree

I don’t think Pearl, the cat, cares ๐Ÿ˜

The Wisteria branches are a work of art ๐Ÿ˜

Now I shut up, and let you enjoy the scenery ๐Ÿ˜Š

(There’s nothing wrong with your eyes – it was early, and still somewhat dark-ish ๐Ÿ™‚)

I hope you enjoyed the stroll through our Winter Wonderland ๐Ÿ’œ

I wish you a wonderful weekend! ๐Ÿ’•

Will You Take A Walk With Me? ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ๐ŸŒณ

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

Lansing, KS is not your typical pretty ‘Small-Town-America’. But in the Fall it turns into a canvas for Mother Nature most beautiful work. ๐Ÿ˜

It’s a sunny, crisp morning, so I took my camera with me on my daily walk.

Here are some pictures of the delightful sights I’m lucky enough to see every day ๐Ÿ˜Š

Straight out the door stands this beauty

These pictures speak for themselves

There’s a little frost on the ground

As the sun went higher, more and more colors came to life

The little creek was really flowing after the rains two weeks ago. Now…not so much

Sunshine and a little green fairy ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

This one made me chuckle ๐Ÿ˜„

I hope you enjoyed our little stroll ๐Ÿ

Do you have a lot of Fall colors in your neck of the woods? Let me know…I’d love to hear/see what’s outside your door! ๐Ÿ’•

Monthly Meet-up ~ Flowers ๐ŸŒบ ๐ŸŒท๐Ÿ’

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

Today I finally found the time to read many of your wonderful blogs ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

While indulging in that, I stumbled across a photo challenge, hosted by Wild Daffodil

This month’s theme is Flowers ๐Ÿ’

Since we’re having a very late Spring, I didn’t expect too much when I headed into the yard with my camera. But upon closer inspection I did spot a few picture-worthy blooms. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Under a just-now-sprouting-green ‘Rose of Sharon’ bush I found some ‘Forget-me-nots’ ๐Ÿ˜Š

The Lilac bush is showing off it’s beauty – and spreading it’s wonderful fragrance through the little corner of our world ๐Ÿ˜

Dandelions…we have Dandelions! ๐Ÿ˜ But I do love them so they get to stay (and spread ๐Ÿ˜‰)

Then I spotted some little violets hiding in the grass ๐Ÿ™‚

Aren’t they lovely? ๐Ÿ’•

Back inside I noticed that my ‘Christmas Cactus’ is starting to bloom ๐Ÿ˜† Does that count?

Silly little thing ๐Ÿ˜

I did save my favorite picture for last ๐Ÿ˜

Make a wish! ๐Ÿงš๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

I know that wasn’t much…but I think the few that had the decency to show up deserve a little praise! ๐Ÿ˜

Let’s hope that Flowers will bloom all around us soon! ๐Ÿ’•

Thanks for dropping by! ๐Ÿค— I hope you enjoyed your stay!

Trees & Shadows ~ The Sun Is Out ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

If you stand on your tippy-toes you can see the weekend from here ๐Ÿ˜ƒ And just in time the sun decided to join us!

Everyone is squinting and blinking – it’s been a while since it was this bright outside ๐ŸŒž

But you’re not here for the Kansas weather report…so I get to the ‘Trees & Shadows‘ that brought you here ๐Ÿ˜Š

When I took the dogs outside, I noticed that the sun was in the perfect position for this beautiful image

Mother Nature really painted a beautiful picture here ๐Ÿ˜

I snapped a few more photos, but the first one really is my favorite!

And I noticed the first sign of Spring

The Maple tree is budding a few weeks earlier than last year…I hope that’s a good sign ๐Ÿ˜Š and that she knows what she’s doing. Not like these poor things ๐Ÿ˜‚

I hope you have a fabulous weekend! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐ŸŒž๐ŸŒท

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the short trip into our backyard ๐Ÿ’•
