Barn Quilts

I am back online and have a lot of pictures to share.  Autumn is our travel month and we spent some time in Illinois and Wisconsin.  Over the next few weeks I will be sharing some of my favorite pictures.
Down the winding roads of Door County Wisconsin,
 I found these barns scattered among the farms.  
The photos are bit blurry 
because some were taken as we drove by.  

I like the colors of the quilt squares on the barns.
 I love this old rickety barn. 
 It looks like it has been there for awhile.
Here is a crazy quilt square.
I Googled Barn Quilts and they have actual trails that you can follow and find all these colorful pieces of art.  
You may have some near you
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a blessed day!

While my hubby and I are walking the trails, I am always looking out for interesting things to shoot.  Today it was mushrooms.

Normally I would have just walked on
 by a mushroom growing on the forest floor. 
 But these tiny gems were so bright they caught my eye. 

So then I thought why not see how many
different ones I can find on our walk.

A bit blurry, but I like how it shows the long stem.

 I didn't realize they came in so many different colors!

 I found a WIKI page on mushrooms.  I think this would make a great science project for the kiddos!
Take your camera out on a hike and see what you can find! 
 Happy shooting!

Remembering A Friend

This weeks picture is in memory of my friend Jay.  She went home to be with the Lord this week.  She never loss sight of God during her battle.  I rejoice in that she is in heaven feeling no more pain!

I created this video because Jay loved flowers.  She would create cards and artwork with the pictures she took.  Some of these pictures are from our day at Longwood Gardens a few years ago.  Please take a moment to pray for the Schlueter family.

We will miss you JAY!

Another Secret Garden

While I away at the Namicolin Resort in Pennsylvania, I walked around the grounds.  I was starting to be disappointed be all the formal green landscaping.  Where were the flower gardens???  Then I turned the corner and found this little patio full of statues and flowers.

 So I walked around and took some pictures. 
I loved the orange on these flowers.
 Of course the pink caught my eye!
Then when I was leaning over I found this guy tucked in the leaves.  He is so pretty with the blue and orange colors.

God’s glory shines through
His creation.
Have a blessed day!

Alaska's state flower, the wild native Alpine forget-me-not (Myosotis alpestris), grows well throughout Alaska in open, rocky places high in the mountains. I found these flowers during our hikes in Alaska.  They are sooooo tiny.  I love daisys, but I think this may be my new favorite flower.

Hebrews 13:16
"But do not forget to do good and to share, for with such sacrifices God is well pleased."

Have a blessed day!

Alaskan Runways

While I was sitting on our balcony, I kept seeing planes taking off right in front of me.  Was it rush hour? 

1:50 people have a pilots licences in Alaska.  A lot of the cities in Alaska are only accessible by plane. 
 This sure is a nice runway!

Word Art Wednesday

What a great reminder that the Lord is
constantly watching over His children!

I found this little mountain Bluebird in the Red Rocks of Colorado.  He was so striking against the dessert landscape.  I am sharing this over at Word Art Wednesday
Todays word art also reminded me of the Gospel song with the same name:  His Eye is On the Sparrow.  Here is a video I found for you listen to.

Weekend In Review

I thought I would share my weekend with you all using, Instagram.  I love this App! The kids dressed up like cows in order to get free food from Chick-Fil-A on Friday.
Sarah and Matthew celebrating Cow Appreciation Day!  First free breakfast!

Then they met up with their other cow friends for some lunch.

Then they headed to a wedding rehearsal.   
While the kids were gone, we went to my favorite garden center to get a house warming gift for my son and his girlfriend.  I got distracted by all these pretty blue pots.

Then I turn around and see THIS!  They are so creative, using a Weber grill for a mini garden.
 Does anyone have an extra grill they don't want. 
Here is the top of the grill.  Look at those tiny boots, so cute!

How about an old wagon? 
I see a mini garden in my future.

You better hide your kids shoes when I come over or they may end up with plants in them.  Soooooo cute.

This guy got to this feeder during the week.  We moved it out to the middle of our window.  He looks a little sad that he can no longer reach the seed. 

 On Sunday we went to visit Christopher and Kara at their new apartment.  They made fondue.  We had a wonderful cheese fondue and a yummy caramel dessert fondue. 
Well that was our weekend in pictures. 
 Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed week!
