As the first day of fall arrives here in the United States, may you find joy in great things like rustling leaves, crackling fires, steaming mugs, cozy quilts, and cuddling!

February Happy Thoughts – more

I see many postings about spring being right around the corner. We all have spring fever. Yes, it will come and we will get three glorious seasons to enjoy. (Though winter has it’s beauty too!)

It made me smile when I opened up this shallow depth of field shot and noticed the little buzzing buddy that graced the image…totally unplanned and fortuitous! These are the little things we need to watch for in life!

Happy Day…Happy Spring Dreaming!

 

“Off-Season” Weekly Photo Challenge

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Off-Season.”

My first time with this challenge. Let me see what I can find in my files…

Mountain Misery  Winter – These kids tough it out as the wind blows the snow horizontally and they endure skiing lessons!

Sun and Snow  Mountain Lake Winter – Elk Lake in the Cascade Mountain Range.

IMG_2786 Spring – It can be confusing here, the spring birds are out finding food, but the snow can still fall.

It is not quite summer in the high desert of Central Oregon, but the weather is unseasonably warm. I chose images of the other seasons for this challenge.

This is a beautiful place…in every season!
