Dried Rose

You have to grow from the inside out. None can teach you, none can make you spiritual. There is no other teacher but your own soul.

Fresh Sweet Pea Flowers

These were my sweet pea flowers in the summer. The flowers were really really beautiful, and this year I had many pods but didn't collect them. I got the seeds from my friend so if I need any, I can just get them from her.

Just as a candle cannot burn without fire, men cannot live without a spiritual life.

Cheerful Blue Sky

These were some left-over photos of November when the sky was bit more playful, and the trees still had some leaves.

Behind the Trees

These are just some random shots of our sky when I can catch the sunrise or sunset. Most days are gray for us now.

Wishing you all a great weekend.

Thanksgiving Weekend

After the storm we have blue sky, just for a few hours, but it was still great to catch some photos of whatever left in nature.

Wishing everyone a fantastic THANKSGIVING with your loved ones and friends. Registered & Protected

Molting Cardinal

“Our task must be to free ourselves... by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and it's beauty.”

In The Neighborhood

The heart of Nature soothes the heart of man,
If with his heart he looks into her eyes.
A place of leaves, wide air, and sunny skies,
Will soothe him more than even woman can.

Nature would be scarcely worth a puff of the empty wind if it were not that all Nature is but a temple, of which God is the brightness and the glory.

Texture Mini Orange Rose

I shut down my blog last week, as I am contemplating on a decision that will come in December, and it is the renewal for the domain name of this website.

With so many bloggers losing their domain names due to one reason or another, I have to think hard about the destiny of my blog. Should I pay for it and go on, and if I go on, how many more smooth sailing years?

While taking a break, I relax by playing with my photos in some editing programs. By immersing myself in something creative, it helps me think about the future of this blog.

Colorful Leaves On Clear Sky

Last week, the colorful leaves of trees were at their peak, bright and beautiful, especially on clear sky.  The colors beg for a stop and admiring on how wonderful the earth is.

Yellow Thistle Flowers

This is a beautiful by the steps of my neighbor's back door, and I believe they are the wild yellow thistle flowers. They look very similar to dandelion, but definitely not.

Maple trees in my neighborhood are putting on a colorful display for the season. Beautiful red, green, orange leaves and different colors in between were just beautiful to see.

On the Very Top

It is a beautiful time of year when the leaves changed color and the tree branches are baren. It gives me a chance to see this starling standing on the very top and over-looking the world.

Into Dream Land

When looking at the sky at the end of the day to see such a soothing display, slowly glides by, I can't help but to think it is a beautiful way to go into dream land. Just a few pretty clouds hover above my world.

Fearsome Spider

As I got out of my car one day in a hurry, I saw this fearsome red-body spider coming very fast toward me. By the look of it, I know I shouldn't be messing around with this creature.

Fire In the Sky

I went out in the backyard one morning and this was the display in the sky that morning. It was like bright fire lit up over the parking lot across the street from my house.

Such a stunning sight to behold! The amazing thing about this was that it only collected in one little spot in the sky. On the two sides of this fire lit, the sky was just gray and bare.

Having Breakfast

You will see plenty of this pose around my neighborhood at this time of year. Squirrel eating fresh walnut! Apparently, there is a walnut tree somewhere in the area, and the squirrels are eating their fill for the winter.

Into the Sunrise

Driving home after dropping my son off at school, I saw this beautiful sky and had to pull into a parking lot to take a couple of shots. It is too gorgeous after the rain and windy days not to enjoy.

Well Blended

There is only a few white coneflower left in my garden as we are going into autumn, and this beautiful cabbage white butterfly enjoys the last nectar for the year.

Birds In the Blue Sky

We have days when the sky is just blue. We were out on an open field and the house across the street seemed to feed pigeons. There were a great number of them on the driveway, and every time someone walked by; they would take off into the air.

These were just a quarter of the birds I saw from that driveway! I am not sure how the neighbors put up with birds' drooping all over everything, and then there are other issues concerning sanitary and health. For me, I wouldn't like to live right next to this feeding ground.

Yellow and Red Blanket Flowers

I have been trying to grow this blanket flower for the last two years, but it kept dying on me. I just couldn't find the right mix of soil and light for it or something.

This is one flower that has such vibrant colors, and very eye-catching. It would make a nice addition to my gloomy front yard, but it just couldn't grow there.

Coming Up

I waited for the ray of sun shine every morning, and as soon as I see the light, I am out in the neighborhood snapping pictures. During the summer month, the sun usually came up around 6:00 AM.

First Gold Finch

I saw this beautiful gold finch through the blind of my window, drinking water from the gutter of neighbor's house. I had just enough time grabbing the camera and took a shot.

I can hear gold finches around my neighborhood, but they are faster than lightening, and my point and shoot camera just can't perform the task.

Curtain of Branches

I tried my best to capture the colors of blue, pink and purple behind the branches in the back of my neighbor's yard. It is not what I expected, but it has the main elements of the colors I was after.

Pretty Younging

This month the birds have been very busy, especially the young cardinals. They came, sometimes in group of two, to the feeder outside my back door! This young male looks absolutely handsome.

Through the Wild Tall Grass

As the weather cooling off, the sky is more dramatic looking and sunrise/sunset has much better colors on display.

I write what I feel, how I feel and whatever I like at the moment
