May Photo-a-Day Challenge πŸ“Έ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

One of the CitySonnet photo-a-day challenge prompts is ‘weathered’. I knew exactly what I wanted to show-and-tell for that one.

A couple of weeks ago I came across a historic, ‘weathered’ little church. It’s out in the country, off on a little side road. It’s almost 100 years old, with a little graveyard in the front. Some research showed that it was awarded a grant for restauration from the Kansas Historic Fund. Yay 😍 And they didn’t waste any time restoring this little gem. Because when I went back (finally remembering to bring my camera πŸ˜‹) people and machines were hard at work, reversing the decay. Great for the little church in the prairie, but the yellow and blue machinery kinda ruined the photo – shoot. πŸ˜‰

So I turned to this amazing tree that greets me every day at the beginning of my walk. He guards the start of a trail along a creek through downtown Leavenworth. We call him the ‘Hulk’ tree, ’cause it looks like he’s bursting out of his bark. 😎

To see just how majestic this tree is, check out my itty-bitty friend in the bottom right corner πŸ˜„πŸ’œπŸŒ³

Thanks for reading❣️ Be safe!

May – Photo A Day Challenge

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today I wanna show you what’s ‘everywhere‘ – today’s prompt in the photo challenge, hosted by CitySonnet

Books! 😍 Books are everywhere! Whether it’s lovely used-book stores, the book section at a thrift store, or – as pictured here- the bookshelves at our local Antique Mall.

I wish you a wonderful rest of your day! πŸ’•

May – Photo A Day Challenge 🌸 Day 4

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I almost didn’t make it today πŸ™ƒ Reason why? Well, today’s prompt in the photo challenge, hosted by CitySonnet , is ‘Shadow’, and, thanks to thick rain clouds, there is nothing like that to be found outside.

But then I looked around inside, and saw that this feather-thingy was throwing an interesting shadow against the wall.

I show you the feather-thing first, since the shadow is a bit scary πŸ˜…

Looks quite harmless, doesn’t it? But – wait for it…

Eeek! Told ya 😳

It’s even better in black-and-white…

Now I hope that this doesn’t give us all nightmares 😬

Ta-ta for now πŸ’•

May Photo A Day Challenge – Day 3

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I hope you’re enjoying your Sunday doing things you love. 😊

My house is starting to smell like fresh-baked bread 😍 If it comes out as expected I’ll share the recipe with you later! πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³

Today’s prompt for City Sonnet’s photo challenge is ‘Natural’.

What comes to your mind when you hear the word ‘natural’? I immediately thought of the beautiful, overgrown patch between two buildings I saw yesterday on my walk in downtown Leavenworth. πŸ˜ŠπŸ€πŸŒΈ

Here’s a close up…

And just outside the frame of those pictures ⬆️ grew a beautiful Poppy…

Beautiful! Isn’t it? 😎

Now I gotta go tend to my bread! πŸ€—

Be safe & stay healthy! πŸ’•

Photo Challenge – Day 2

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today’s (Day 2) prompt in the CitySonnet Challenge is ‘Glistening’. And while out on a walk I caught some images of a stream that is doing just that. 😊

I hope you get to enjoy a walk on this fabulous weekend! πŸŒžπŸŒ·πŸ€

Be safe! πŸ’•

Photo A Day Challenge – Welcome May πŸŒ·

Hello (again) my lovely friends πŸ’•

I just came across this lovely daily photo challenge, hosted by citysonnet

‘Welcome May’ was the first prompt (yesterday’s). Great – the first day and I’m already behind. πŸ˜‚

So, without further ado…here’s ‘ Welcome May’ 😎🌷🌼

This was taken on my daily walk. The sky is blue, the grass is turning green, the cows are out – a perfect day❣️

Take good care of yourself! πŸ’•

A Walk By The Lake On A Sunny Day 😎

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today we got to enjoy a rare, gorgeous November day 😍

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? πŸ˜…

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. πŸ˜„
It kinda looks like they’re dancing for me, doesn’t it? 😊
I love Sycamore trees 😍
I do wish the trash cans weren’t so bright πŸ˜†
On the way home – the clouds were moving in

I hope you enjoyed this little view of Kansas πŸ™‚

Until next time πŸ’•

❄️A ❄️ Picture ❄️ Perfect ❄️ Morning β„️

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

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 πŸ˜‹

The neighborhood kids got busy πŸ˜ƒ

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 πŸ™‚)

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

I wish you a wonderful weekend! πŸ’•

Will You Take A Walk With Me? πŸ˜ŽπŸπŸŒ³

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

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 πŸ§šπŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

This one made me chuckle πŸ˜„

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! πŸ’•
