Playing with Large Photos....

Now that we can actually 
"see" my photos 
I am going to post some of 
my favorites from 
Winterthur and Longwood Gardens.
The photos in this post
 were taken at Winterthur in April 2010.
Makes me want to go back this Spring
to relive the depth of color
and sights of Spring.

My friend, Belinda, told us about Winterthur.
She said it is the most amazing thing to stand in 
the woods and be able to turn in any direction
and see Azaleas in bloom.
Belinda was so right.

Azaleas bloom for such a relatively short 
period of time that it is like seeing something
few get to enjoy.
A special treasure.

The grounds are so well tended.
Wide paths make it relatively safe from 
ticks which are such a problem for us 
in the Northeast.

The intense green in the next few photos
is my favorite color ever to be found in nature.
I'm drawn to it and feel like my eyes attempt 
to drink it in.
I breathe better when immersed in 
woodsy areas where this color

Ahhh, revisiting these photos has definitely gotten my day off to a 
peaceful start.  Did you ever stop to think about the beauty that God 
placed on our planet?
I think it speaks of His love for us.
The earth could have been simply utilitarian....
but instead He gave us all of this!
Flowers, trees, grass and so much more.
It comes and goes in seasons so that we are able
to better appreciate it.

I am so in awe of a Creator who
thinks up stuff like this.

More recycled photos to come in the 
next week or so.....
I love seeing them again.

Helps the time pass until things are all green
around here again.
It is on its way.
Quickly, really.
