A splash of color

I spent most of last week moving in slow motion. I had a routine medical procedure that took three days to prep, submit, and recover. It wasn’t drastic, or traumatic, just too freakin’ time consuming.

So, once the weekend arrived, I took full advantage of the gorgeous weather – sunshine, cool breezes, and fluffy clouds – and eagerly went on my semi-fortnightly* photo hike.

*Hubs tells me this means the same thing as ‘weekly’ – you can trust him, he’s a rocket scientist.

  1. I’m sorry the procedure took so much time, but I’m glad you are past it. I love the leaf photo.


  2. Love it. You have so much beauty in your area, and I love that you take the time and effort to go find it. And share it with us. Not that I’m at ALLLLLL jealous of you, of course :) Love the little lizard? frog?


  3. Semi-fortnightly sounds way cooler than weekly! Glad your procedure wasn’t terrible and glad you got outside. Your photos are always so stunning!

    Happy Sunday!



  4. Is that a snake in the photobomb? (to the left, top)

    Love the bayou pic, reflections are something I enjoy. Nice pics all the way around.


  5. It seems to have been raining here for about 3 weeks now. I miss the sun sooooo very much. Thank you for sharing a bit of your though



  6. Semi-fortnightly. Ha! Did hubs come UP with that expression too? Since semi is half and fortnight is two weeks, it does all work out to weekly.

    All the photos are beautiful, but for some reason today the orange leaf on the bed of dry pine needles is the one I like best.
