“Our life is an apprenticeship to the truth that around every circle another can be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning, and under every deep a lower deep opens.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

I especially like the 1st one. I tried several times to get a good one of those flowers. The attached is not colorful but I like it.
Oops…attachments don’t make it through! You’ll have to use snail mail. 🙂
This is beautiful Ogee.
Thank you, Susan! Inspiration abounds.
Wonderful pictures. Did you take them all? The puppy is cute, but I like the flowers best.
Guilty as charged! Thank you. 🙂
What a gorgeous garden, beautiful flowers, beautiful people and beautiful dogs.
Again, you’ve taken some breathtaking photos of beautiful flowers and handsome pups. Hope the one pup is continuing to do well after surgery.
That’s Joe. Affectionately referred to temporarily as “Franken-Joe!” He is doing much better, thank you!
Those faces are so dear! – The Flora. The Fauna. And above all, the Wonderful Goldens! 🙂
Wow, such great things going on in the garden! Dogs, flowers, birds, butterflies…so beautiful!
Thank you, Marcie!
Your pictures are beautiful, as always. Do you have any tips for shooting flowers?
Flower shots for me always end up slightly blurry on account of wind
If you’re using a point and shoot camera without an option for action shots, the wind can be challenging. If you use one that you can adjust shutter speed on – you’ll have better luck. Or…wait for a calm day…cheapest solution of all! 🙂
I love pictures of flowers, but I have to say the last picture is my favourite.. What a friendly face! Beautiful ❤
That’s our version of a snowdrop flower! Mysteriously, it is transported on four legs. 🙂
Aw, thank you. My mommy feels as if she just strolled through your beautiful garden after a kind of busy day . . . and along the way, she exhaled. Wonderful!
That is precisely how the garden makes me feel too! Your mommy and I must have a lot in common!
Lovely flowers and doggies. Glad Joe is recovering. We are 6 weeks on from a 2nd cruciat ligament operation on the same leg, this time a tplo, and seeing Joe’s stitches was a reminder what other pet lovers and pets go through and not feel sorry for myself. Joy
Recovery is never fun or fast enough,Joy – but you will get there! (And they would do it for us if they could!) 🙂
Really beautiful dogs. They are our best friends for life:)
Thanks for visiting, Ana! And yes…they are.
