Blooming

Hyacinth blooming in my garden this spring,
loving the warm sun as much as I do.

Beauty in Weeds

I've read that weeds are just flowers
that don't know how to grow in rows.
I've also read that flowers are nature's graffiti. 
And I've read that weeds are just unloved flowers.
Most of the time,
I think weeds are beautiful, 
as long as they're growing on 
someone else's property.
This one is beautiful to me.

National Cathederal

A different view of the gorgeous National Cathedral
in Washington D. C. Such a gorgeous place to visit.
Such a treasure for our nation.

Staircase

Today I received a comment on one
of the photos on my blog. Yeah!
It's nice to know real people are actually
looking at the photos I so enjoy taking.
Let me hear from you now and then.
Jeremy, if you're still looking,
I'd be glad to post some more photos 
from the same church that you commented on.
The church has gorgeous stained glass and 
I'd be happy to show you more if you're 
still hanging around.

Castle Ruins


This is another photo from 
Ha Ha Tonka State Park.
Ha Ha Tonka is a 
Native American Indian name
meaning "laughing waters."
While the castle ruins are fascinating,
the geology of the region 
is even more interesting.
Between where I stood to take this photo 
and the castle ruins off on the far cliff,
there is a deep ravine.
At the bottom of the ravine 
is the spring I posted
a photo of yesterday. 
At one time, 
the area where the ravine is now
was a massive cave system.
Sometime, before people came along here,
the cave roof collapsed, 
leaving a large sink hole.
It's a beautiful area and worth a visit
if traveling through Missouri.

Ha Ha Tonka State Park

We recently visited Ha Ha Tonka State Park 
near Camdenton, Missouri.
I enjoyed many areas of this park.
One of my favorites was this natural spring,
with millions of gallons of water 
flowing out of the rocks daily.
The water comes out fairly warm so the area
is filled with live critters year round. 
The area was very beautiful.
It was in this area that I took 
the previous photo
of all the turtles on the log. 
There were
hundreds of turtles in this 
warm water
and basking in the sun 
on the day we visited.
