Yesterday I Saw...



~ the kind of view that is a massage for your soul; a part of my own precious ordinary that I never take for granted

~ banks of tiger lilies creating streamers of orange along the roads



~ a white cow exactly in the middle of a bright green, algae-filled pond. How did that cow get in the exact middle without leaving a wake?

~ a horse rolling around, delightedly scratching himself in the dusty grass. His sock feet waved in the air like a roly poly bug stuck on it's back.



~ two kinds of sunshine

Hi Relyn,

We are fortunate to have views similar to your first picture all around us and I try never to take them for granted.

I thought for a second that cow was on the world's largest bed of guacamole.

These shots are perfect for Small Town Snapshot Sunday. You should come and play with us!

Please, please? You'd be so awesome!

i love this—especially the diptych with the sun and sunflower. so neat.

i just happened to be scanning your profile page before i clicked on your blog link.

we like SO many of the same movies. it's funny, but i have not watched a movie in sooooo long, because all i ever do with my free time now is look at blogs or write on mine. :(

SE'LAH... said...

You have a great eye, Relyn. How did that cow get there without leaving a wake? He must have been there a long time or perhaps he was gently lowered from a helicopter in that very spot.

Hmmmm ;)

Hi Relyn!
Thank you for the comment you left on my interview with Tracy. It was wonderful to interview someone so talented and sweet.

I can't get over this picture of the cow in the pond! It almost, at first glance, looks like he's laying on a putting green.

Happy to have found your blog!
Amanda
