GOOD NIGHT SUN

I took this photo of the setting sun on a cruise to Cancun a few years back.  There were so many beautiful sunsets and sunrises and that water was the prettiest blue.blue-sea

Next the water with waves from the ship.

COQUINA BEACH

Coquina is our favorite Beach on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida.  We also love to visit the Atlantic on the East Coast of Florida.  On Coquina there isn’t many large shells but the beauty of the water makes up for the lack of shells.

MUSHROOM PIE

The Photo Challenge this week wanted details.  This mushroom  was growing in my yard a while back and I was blessed to get a photo of it.  I have no idea what kind it is but I love the detail and how it looks like a mound of meringue.

Thanks for stopping by and happy posting to you.  God bless.

Another Street

I took this photo while in Texas recently and thought it would be good for “Street” entry.  I know it is my second one but I wanted to share.

JOURNEY

It began with an idea and a dream; start a family, build a house and barn and turn them in to a home.  The babies came one by one and what was once boards and nails became a home filled with laughter and yes, some tears.  Then the children grew up.  They left for college or distance jobs. Their life journeys no longer needed the small frame house and old barn.  It was forgotten and left to end its journey in neglect and disrepair.

HOME

Every thing has a different conception of home.

     To a honey bee this hive was home.  A storm came through our yard a few weeks back and blew a huge limb off one of our trees.  I knew bees did live there for almost a year but for some reason they left.  However, I was both surprised and grateful to see this hive.  Surprised because before this I had never seen inside a beehive in nature.  And grateful that the bees had decided to travel on because I worried they might attack my six-year-old grandson

For a few days one summer this cabin in North Carolina was our home.  It looks rustic but it had all the real comforts of home.

So…while our homes differ in style and how we conceive them all creatures have something they call home.

HONEYCOMB

hundreds     We went shopping Wednesday and had dinner out at my favorite Asian Restaurant. While we were out we were hit by a bad thunderstorm; lightning lite up the sky.
That is one thing I have never been able to catch with my camera (lightning) even though Tampa is the Lightning Capital of the World (so they say.)  Anyway we had a wonderful afternoon of shopping and eating; two of my favorite things to do.

When we got home this is what we found in out backyard.

And from a different angle.

It sort of crushed our picnic table but not completely.  Thank God my husband is a great carpenter and can absolutely make or repair anything made of wood.  We were not so lucky with some of my flowers but thankfully they were mostly annuals.  But what do they say about every cloud has a silver lining; and you should always look for the good in everything? Wellll… while the limb was dangling I found this.  Yeah…yeah I know I should never have gotten that close.

Layers of honeycomb.  Of course there was no honey because the bees left weeks ago.  Thank God or there would have be hundreds swarming.  But I was excited to see this.

My husband is working on clearing everything up today and he is trying to

save the part with the comb.  I can’t wait to show it to my grandson.

But just in case it falls apart I was able to rescue these.

I had to have one for my sister-in-law because she loves nature as much as I do (or more.)  I’m going to check at Lowe’s and see if I can find something to spray them with that will preserve them.  Any ideas?

Thank you for stopping by, please come back soon.  Have a blessed day and always look for God’s blessings they’re there if you only look.  God bless.
