I started an online class with Diane Culhane yesterday called, “The Love of A Tree.” You can find out more about it here: http://www.carlasonheim.com/for-the-love-of-a-tree-diane-culhane/I enjoy taking classes from Diane as she is a wonderful teacher and I love her whimsical style! Plus she paints with lots of color like me! 🙂
I thought you might enjoy seeing some of my tree photos.
Hope you branch out and try something new today! I’d love to hear what you do!

My hubby and I took a drive to the lake yesterday. The roads were wet so it was a good day to travel. It was so lovely to see the trees covered with snow! A little cold by the lake as the wind was blowing so I took a quick photo while it was snowing:
The lake water is lowered in the winter so it always looks a bit strange to see so much shoreline. It would be a bit chilly for a beach fire today! 😉
We walked around near our lake place. It was so beautiful and peaceful!
We saw a few deer tracks and that was about it. And a little sunshine as we were leaving but mostly it felt really cold. Brrr!
So we stopped for a cup of coffee and hot cocoa to warm-up by a crackling fire at a local resort before heading home.
It was lovely to enjoy winter’s wonderland for a day and return to our warm home!
Enjoy your day! 🙂

It FINALLY rained this weekend! In case you haven’t heard on the news, the Pacific Northwest is raging in wildfires!
We are hoping the rain today and (hopefully) during the week and the cooler weather – will help ease the work of firefighters in our area and stop the destruction. The smoke has been so bad, it has been difficult to breathe the air or see the mountains! So today I took these photos after the rain at the lake to share with you….
Grab you raincoat and your boots and let’s jump in some puddles!
A daisy for your thoughts:
A fall leaf floating in a puddle:
Burnt tree bark from area fires on the beach:
Storm clouds over the lake:
We continue to pray for rain!
Thanks for taking a walk with me and splashing in some puddles!
Happy Monday! 🙂

I took some amazing photos this weekend by a creek that I’d like to share with you. I have written a poem that I am dividing into 3 posts. I hope you enjoy!
I walked the path today:
You know the one…
In the woods:
By the creek:
Where the Cedar trees grow:
And moss covers the rocks like a plush green carpet:
My next post for my poem will continue on Wednesday!
May my photos give you peace like a walk in the woods brings me…
