Flower Power


Hi everyone!  Happy Friday to you!

I thought I'd show you a few photos that I took recently when my girl and and I went on a little outing to the park. We're so lucky to live so close to such a wonderful place. It's just across the road from our neighborhood...1,600 acres of beauty and fun, full of all sorts of things to do...walk, bike, swim, ski, golf and ride horses, just to name a few. I guess I should add photography to that list too, shouldn't I?!


Up near the community center there's a little flower garden brimming with all sorts of pretty plants...roses, zinnas, cosmos...too many to list, really. Anyway, that's where we went to snap a few photos shortly before the sun completely hid itself behind the trees.


My daughter had so much fun singing and dancing...pretending she was putting on a show for me while I sat on the bench. I think I told you last time how she started Kindergarten this week...well, it couldn't have been worse timing because she has been so sick with pneumonia that so she was only able to go to school for one day!  

I'm praying that next week has better things in store for us.


On a happier note, the weather here has been absolutely glorious! I'm trying to get outside and enjoy it as much as I can. It certainly is beginning to feel like autumn and while I have the urge to start decorating for the season, there's a part of me that's trying to hold onto summer for just a bit longer.

Well, so long for now. Hope you have a good weekend!

    I think most of us feel the same way, hating to say goodbye to summer, and at the same time, happy to welcome autumn.

  36. What Beautiful Images and what a Cutie your Daughter is, she looks so comfortable and natural in front of the camera. Having such a Natural landscape so close to Home is indeed a Blessing, and when it bursts forth with Flowers it looks like one's own Secret Garden!

  41. Hello, Tricia! I love these photos – truly fairy garden images. But so very sorry to hear your daughter has had pneumonia. I do hope she is fully recovered and able to enjoy going to kindergarten. Such a big milestone for her.

    Have a lovely week! xo

  42. Tricia, thanks so much for your visit! What gorgeous photos, you are so talented behind the camera. I'm so glad that your little darling girl is feeling better, I hope she's able to go to school every day next week! Kindergarten is so fun, it's such a great age. xo Lidy

  43. Hi sweet Tricia, hope you're doing well. So sorry your darling daughter hasn't been feeling well. Hoping she is all better now. Pnuemonia is so scary. My youngest had it when she was probably your daughter's age and I'm not sure if it was harder on me than her ;) Your photos, and your daughter, are beautiful as usual.

  46. Oh Tricia, I am so sorry to hear that your daughter has been sick, and I sure hope she is better soon.
    As always, your photographs are so beautiful, and how nice that the weather is wonderful, especially for your little one. A much easier time to get well, than when it is very cold outside.
