No more pages to turn…

Last year about this time, my friend Barbara gave me this Imagetotally gorgeous, full of greens calendar.  Every month for twelve months I have anticipated the next ‘green’ photograph. Everyday, when I see this calendar, I think of my friend Barbara, utter a quick prayer, see what day it is and continue on…. usually toward fixing my breakfast.   But, alas, there are NO more pages to turn.  I have to tell you, I am a little sad.  Each month showed some lusciously green hillside or meadow that was so inviting.  I could just ‘be’ there, wiggling my old and ugly toes in the grass.  I will miss you, green calendar.  Soon it will be farewell!

Thanks, Barbara, for the wonderful year!

Christmas Berries

Yesterday morning I looked out the breakfast room window to notice that the holly berries were simply translucent.  The sun was shining ‘just so‘  on them and you could see right through them.  I was just captivated!   It was almost like they were lighted from the inside.   I really wanted to go outdoors and sit with the berries, soaking up some Vitamin D from the sun but instead I grabbed my camera.  I am still trying to figure out the new camera so the practice should be helpful, right?  Here are some of the pics.

Nature always inspires me!  May it always be so.  Merry berries!
