Photo Hunt Favorite

Hi folks, I am sorry about being late with Photo Hunt again this week.

This blog being primarily about the pond and surrounding area, it was hard to come up with a favorite. Since winter is here there is not much going on around the pond; no one is coming fishing because it's too cold, the fish aren't eating much so they don't follow Baker around, the turtles have dug into the mud to sleep, the frogs and lizards have also hibernated, and there are no pretty insects around. - SO there's not much to post about the pond right now.

My favorite season of the year is Spring as everything comes alive again. These are my favorite photos that I took of the pond last spring. If you have been following the blog from the beginning, you may have seen one similar to this first one as the header, but here is a different shot:

I love the limbs with the fullness of the Dogwood blossoms.

The sun shining on the flower petals was spectacular.

Well,I guess we'll just have to tolerate the cold until my favorite season comes around again.


  1. Not much can compare to a blossom-laden dogwood at pond's edge. Each season, of course, has its own beauty, but spring is definitely the high point for some of my favourite bloomers.

    If you get a chance this week, check out my first giveaway. 8-]

    Have a JESUS-filled day! ^i^

  2. Thank you, SophieMae, for your sweet comment. Yes, the Dogwoods are so beautiful in the spring and the scene is so different every season.God has blessed us with so many wonderful things in the spring-time and I am so thankful for that.
    You have a blessed day also in the Lord. G G :)

  3. We have Dogwood blossoms hanging just above our waterfall, they are among my favorite blooms! It's so nice to "see" spring here!

  4. I can see why spring is your favorite season. Very pretty to look at especially seeing that is below freezing today!

  5. Oh lovely to have some nice photos to look at that have some green in them as it is so cold here near Buffalo NY...Thank you for posting GraceAnne and have a wonderful healthy, happy holiday season...Michelle

  6. Spooky, Thanks for your nice comment. Wow - You have a waterfall ?! - That is fantastic.
    Glad that you liked my pix of spring.
    Stay warm up there, and God bless.

    Hi Kelly, yes, I saw on the news how cold it is over your way. Thanks for stopping by and I know you will be glad when spring comes to Texas too. Have a blessed week.

    Michelle, It is so nice to hear from you again also. Yep, it's nice to be able to look back and remember through photos the warmer and more beautiful days of the year.
    Thank you for your great words and compliments. You stay warm too and have a blessed week.

  7. It's snowing here today and cold, brr, so I must really thank you for the glimpse into spring. It is something to look forward to.

  8. Tammy - Thanks for stopping by and glad you enjoyed the spring pics. I saw on the news what weather you are having! Stay warm, and keep painting.
    Blessings to you this season.

  9. Hello Graceanne Grateful - such pretty photos. Spring is my favorite time too, especially now that I am doing marathon training in the cold and dark a lot. Of course I just saw a post from a runner in Wisconsin who said that it was -1 and 10 inches of new snow. We are nowhere near that. Enjoy the day! Art
