I shot these photos this morning in my forest behind my house.  The mist was just beginning to lift.

This one is of the moisture dripping off of the branches.  I love how the bark is peeling back off of the branch and the silk threads of a spider’s web between the limbs.

I looked up and saw these turkey vultures high in the tree branches.  They just sat there and posed for me.

I took these photos last summer when I was in Florida.  I found these pretty bright yellow wildflowers along a nature walk near the water in Kissimmee.

This week I have decided to participate in pictures instead of writing.  Unfortunately, I have obtained these photos from the http://www.  I have not had the opportunity to be out shooting pictures recently.  But the colors this week cried out to me to be portrayed in pictures.

The Ealges Flew Right Over the Patriots

cyw-feb-4-10

So Philadelphia now has it’s first Superbowl Championship team.  I wish Gary had lived to see it.  Of course, if he had, I would never hear the end of it.  Being a true Redskin fan since I don’t know, forever, that would become old really quick.  However, I am very happy for Philly.  It was a long time coming.  So, Nick Foles, the back up QB led the team to what many have not been able to do in the Eagles history.  Kudos!

I know that you will be able to hear the noise from the streets of Philadelphia into the depths of outer space as the fans welcome home and celebrate the victorious players.  The razzle-dazzle of the celebration will put a rosy pink in the cheeks of the players and their families who have had to listen to the naysayers all season long.  Just think those who have called the Eagles the underdog all year are now turning purple with embarrassment at their lack of respect for the team.

No worries say the Eagles. They wore that badge with pride as they marched through New England filling their piggy banks and those of the owner.

Philly can certainly celebrate better than any city in the country.  The Mummers will be strutting to the tune of Fly Eagles Fly and the fans will be going wild. The sun is finally shining on the Eagles.

There is only one bittersweet aspect to all of this.  My husband Gary didn’t live long enough to enjoy this victory with his daughter Samantha who has taken up the Screamin Green.

Have a good one.

Salmon

Color your world challenge: Salmon

pansearedsalmon

One of my  favorite meals is pan seared salmon.  I fry it up in coconut oil and the skin gets so crispy and the flavor is wonderful.  My husband had many seafood allergies and just didn’t like fish too much so I never had much at home.  I had to wait until we went out to eat to have my fish or seafood.  Now I am enjoying cooking it up right here at home and I have salmon at least twice a week.  YUM!
