❄️A ❄️ Picture ❄️ Perfect ❄️ Morning ❄️

Hello my lovely friends 💕

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 😋

The neighborhood kids got busy 😃

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

I don’t think Pearl, the cat, cares 😁

The Wisteria branches are a work of art 😍

Now I shut up, and let you enjoy the scenery 😊

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

I hope you enjoyed the stroll through our Winter Wonderland 💜

I wish you a wonderful weekend! 💕

Will You Take A Walk With Me? 😎🍁🌳

Hello my lovely friends 💕

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. 😍

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 😊

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 🧚🏼‍♀️

This one made me chuckle 😄

I hope you enjoyed our little stroll 🍁

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! 💕

Monthly Meet-up ~ Flowers 🌺 🌷💐

Hello my lovely friends 💕

Today I finally found the time to read many of your wonderful blogs 😃

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

This month’s theme is Flowers 💐

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. 😃

Under a just-now-sprouting-green ‘Rose of Sharon’ bush I found some ‘Forget-me-nots’ 😊

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

Dandelions…we have Dandelions! 😁 But I do love them so they get to stay (and spread 😉)

Then I spotted some little violets hiding in the grass 🙂

Aren’t they lovely? 💕

Back inside I noticed that my ‘Christmas Cactus’ is starting to bloom 😆 Does that count?

Silly little thing 😁

I did save my favorite picture for last 😍

Make a wish! 🧚🏼‍♀️

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

Let’s hope that Flowers will bloom all around us soon! 💕

Thanks for dropping by! 🤗 I hope you enjoyed your stay!

Trees & Shadows ~ The Sun Is Out 😎

Hello my lovely friends 💕

If you stand on your tippy-toes you can see the weekend from here 😃 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 🌞

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

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 😍

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 😊 and that she knows what she’s doing. Not like these poor things 😂

I hope you have a fabulous weekend! 😎🌞🌷

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed the short trip into our backyard 💕
