Rippled Reflections (Monochrome Monday)

 

 

 

Summer floating by… (Macro Monday)

Whilst daughter and I were hiking over the summer we came across many of these spider webs still covered with early morning dew drops, giving the illusion of floating.

Wow, who would have ever thought I’d be using words like hiking and early morning in the one sentence? My goodness, the times they really ARE a changing!

A new day, a new beginning! (WPC – Rise/Set)

A new day brings a new beginning. A day to begin a new project, a day to begin planning a new adventure, or sometimes it’s simply a day to keep putting one foot in front of the other.

In the encouraging words of my darling mother… sometimes you just have to live each day to spite those who don’t want you to. My mother, our very own ray of sunshine!🙃

Live each day! (WPC – I’d rather be…)

I’d Rather Be… grateful for each day lived, a life filled with beautiful sights, smells and experiences…

then regretting what has been or might have been, or even what should be!

Nature’s very own Candles (Monochrome Monday)

It’s probably only me but when I looked out the window to see the new growth on the pine tree all standing up the way they were, it reminded me of birthday candles.

As I say, it’s probably only me but even the tips on this growth look like the flames on a candle.

Five, Six, Pick up Sticks! (Monochrome Monday)

Looking out my sun-room window the other morning, I had to look twice at what was floating out in the harbour. Initially it wasn’t making any sense but finally it came into focus.

Five Six Pick Up Sticks

Somehow or other one of the many logs that float around the river systems here in BC had taken a fancy to something a little more “a la naturale“!

 

 

 

Rain or Shine? (Monochrome Monday)

Watching the sun rise last week over the ocean, the clouds surrounding it seemed undecided as to blow on through or to stay, allowing the skies to pour down upon us.

Good Morning BW

Eventually the clouds disappeared but as the sun climbed above the horizon, the sun’s rays reflected on and behind the clouds was more than a glorious sight to behold. What a way to start the day!
