Take A Walk

I apologize that I haven’t posted in a few days… life has kind of gotten in the way!  I haven’t been feeling well and so I have gotten behind.

I thought you might enjoy taking a little walk with me at the lake after a busy week…

These pie cherries are looking pretty ripe!  The Robins haven’t eaten these…yet!

The sunset looks like a winner tonight – look at these whispy clouds!

Pinecones piled high for a beach fire – yet look at that yellow flower growing on the edge! 🙂

As I step onto the dock, I notice the clouds reflecting on the water and plants sprouting new growth between boards:

I like the combination of the moss growing on the dock boards and the mountains in the distance in this sunset view:

As I walk back to my little place at the lake, I notice these beautiful flowers:

I just love their color combination, don’t you? 💜

Wishing you a happy day taking a walk enjoying the beauty around you –  I hope you share a description with me!

Cheers! 🙂

A Pine Cone Study

A friend at the lake brought me this wonderful dish of pine cones recently:

She thought I might enjoy painting them… And I did!

It amazes me how such a simple subject can bring me so much JOY to paint!

I noticed how one of the greener pine cones reminded me of a pineapple.

May you find beauty in what you treasure today!

Cheers! 🙂

Lake Memories

My parents had a cabin at the lake where I spent many wonderful summers as a child.  One of the best memories was my mom making Huckleberry pancakes from the fresh berries we picked – like these that I recently made for my hubby:

My hubby and I still spend our summers at the same lake – Priest Lake, in Northern Idaho but in our little trailer by the lake.  The views are similar:

Our friends we’ve made – extraordinary! ❤

We love nature:

And our little piece of heaven on earth:

Happy Summer!

Relaxing

I took this photo at the lake recently:

Then had fun changing it with a free app called, “Layout,” on my iPad:

Doesn’t it look cool?!

Here is another one with a different photo:

Weeds Or Flowers?

Some people see weeds…

I see a field of flowers,

Growing wild and free.

I took this photo yesterday at the lake.  We had such a beautiful weekend – sunny and warm.

These daisies are considered weeds in the State of Idaho but I think they look so pretty!

Happy Monday!  Cheers! 🙂

Shadows and Light

I find the shadows to be almost as beautiful of the flowers in the sun light!

Lily Of The Valley

A haiku for you…

Lily white as snow,

Adoring leaves surround you –

Making you the show!

Wishing you a Sunny Sunday to enjoy nature’s beauty around you!

Cheers! 🙂

A Day To Reflect

Some days I just need to slow down and reflect on life…

Yesterday seemed like the perfect day at the lake!  😃

A good morning reflection – so thankful to be alive here at the lake!

An evening boat ride on calm waters:

Just breathe!  Love these cotton ball clouds and calm waters.  Thank you God for this beautiful place to unwind and recharge.

Pink clouds… such an amazing view!

IMG_1832

Thank you for this day!  Wow!  God!  Your masterpieces are such a work of art in nature!!

Wishing you a day to relax and enjoy what brings you happiness in life!

Cheers!  🙂

Lake Time

My hubby and I opened up our lake place (trailer) over the weekend.  We weren’t sure of the weather but decided to chance it and left home in rainy weather but arrived at the lake in sunshine!

The weather turned out to be wonderfully warm and the sky was the brilliant blue of summer… although the mountains were still covered with snow!

IMG_1573

We took our first boat ride of the season… Lake time for us is May through September.    I have been going to Priest Lake, Idaho since I was a baby so it always feels like coming home when I arrive!

Here are some more photos for you to enjoy with a haiku:

Snow on rocky peaks,

Sunshine sparkles on waves blue-green…

IMG_1531

Ah, fresh mountain air!

Cheers!

Nothing Crabby!

There is nothing crabby about this Crabapple tree!  It blooms the most gorgeous colors every Spring!

IMG_1411

I decided to try painting some of the blossoms in watercolor… yet was only able to get a sketch done today.

I’m going to try painting this one looser… hope you check back in next week to see how I do!

Happy Mother’s Day to ALL mothers – furry or human!

Cheers! 🙂
