Weekly Photo Challenge: (Extra)ordinary

This has been an extraordinary Autumn for me.  It’s a glorious transformation from summer to fall in the country like this.  Helps me to deal with my loss and other changes I am still getting used to with something to be grateful for.  God is good!  Enjoy the last hurrah of fall!  As my about page states, look but don’t touch.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy Place

OctHiddenLakeGardensFall 117Hidden Lake Gardens in Tipton Michigan is the happiest place I know of, no matter what the season.  I have loved nature since I was a small child.  Plants, animals, smells, the feeling I get just walking with the breeze on my face, everything about outdoors!

Fall is an especially beautiful time to me and I wanted to share some of this with you.  Take care and God bless!
