Wordless Wednesday

Well almost wordless….there is only 34 days till the first day of spring and not to far from that will we start to see new leaves sprouting from trees and plants popping up from the ground. I cannot wait

Thanks for visiting!



Today I had a few trees cut down and in the pile I find 2 unlikely images, a heart and what looks like 2 eyes (to me anyway) on the side of a log. When I put them together it looks like it is smiling.



I will be getting a straw hat for it and placing it in my flowerbed somewhere.

Is it really fall?

Some of you may have a couple of my earlier post when I was dreading the fall weather since it will start to get cold.  Well the weather here in NJ is anything but fall like.  Today we had temperatures in the 80’s and tomorrow we may even break the record if it reaches 86 degrees.

I haven’t taken many pictures at my workplace oasis in a while so since the weather was so nice I decided to take a few pictures.

Last One

While at Princeton Battlefield friday we noticed that there were several apple trees in a small cluster but this was the last apple.

And he called her name…

“TRACI….Come and see me” said the massive tree.

Traci and I had to leave work early today to handle some family business.  When that was finished, we stopped by Strawbridge Lake in Mt. Laurel NJ for some pictures.

There was this massive tree with limbs that were so thick and extremely long that seemed to just be calling for someone to climb it.  So Traci being Traci answered the call and climbed the tree (only minor assistance from me was needed).

The picture does not do justice to the size of this tree.

This branch/limb was so thick and long it just amazed me.

7 Days of Nature Challenge (5/7)

By Any Means

This picture was taken about a year ago at a local fishing dock.  It looks like this tree did everything it could to emerge thru the crack.  The leaves are all tattered but it survived.

This is how we should live.  Do what we need to do to achieve out goals.  Don’t get discouraged at the first or second obstacle that gets in our way.  We need to keep pushing towards the goal that we sent.

Adventure 2

About 2 weeks ago Arai and I went on our second adventure into the woods.  I never noticed that there is a trail that the folks that ride 4 wheelers use is just outside my yard.  So on this day we decided to take that trail instead of wandering aimlessly.

Most of the pictures of Arai were of his back.  I had to keep telling to slow down and wait for Mom-mom and of course I got the why and I had to admit that I am old and can’t run as fast as you.  A few times the look he gave aid “you need to hurry up Mom-mom”.  So I had to distract him with looking up at the trees and looking down at the new plants springing forth.  But that did not last long he wanted to keep going.


Arai likes pirates and pirate maps.  He knows that “X” is where to find the treasure.  Before Spring is over I will be making a treasure map and hiding different treasure for him to find.  Only problem I see with this….who will takes pictures?


Thanks for visiting and sorry for the picture over load!


Life in a Jar

My grandson and I went for another walk in the woods on Sunday.  We had a great time exploring.  I came across these to jars that had moss growing in them.

It is amazing how nature finds a way to over come obstacles that are in their way.

If it were only this easy for us.

As always thank you for visiting!
