Saturday Morning Post


Despite the fact that we both had the 'COLD FROM HELL' all this week,
and, I must add, the first time in 42 years that we had a cold at the same time,
can you just hear us now!!!,
we did manage to get out a couple of times.


Sophie and I did a very long walk on Thursday at Point Pleasant Park.
She ran ahead and waited at the shore.


Having forgotten to take 'Mr.Orangie' from the car, she settled for a stick.


Did you know that hanging out clothes on a line can be very meditative?
Been doing this since I could reach the line.
Happy spring is here.


 Star Magnolia having a lot to say this spring.


Sophie at her best along the shore.


Pair of Canada Geese honking their heads off.


Corkscrew Larch.


A very regal Hellebore.

  2. Lovely photos to brighten up my weekend Jim! Your magnolia is wonderful. Don't you love it when you give each other colds? Feel better - dogs are so clever not getting colds!

  3. Great shots, Jim! I hope you're both much better. And my question is: who complains more when they're sick? LOL...

  6. Yep, hanging laundry is as good as gardening or fishing for a meditative state.
    Was thinking laundry prayer flags...

  7. Breathtaking all!!! But Sophie is ALWAYS at her best. So sorry about the simultaneous colds. We usually time our illnesses well, but every so often we've had to share the misery... And it's not pretty!

    1. LOL! I hear you, Mitchell. We become two little babies requiring a lot of TLC from each other.
      Sophie stoicism about life really suits our desire to capture 'the perfect' shot.
