Project 52 - Leaves

Project 52 - p52 weekly photo challenge with Kent Weakley
I love walking through the woods on a cool Fall day. Its one of the places where the beauty and colour of the season really is evident.
Scenic Sunday
The forest paths are covered in fallen leaves, the colours are awesome. The air smells fresh.

Camera Critters
Squirrels are preparing for the long winter. We always have a packet of peanuts to pass out.
Being in the rainforest belt, unfortunately the leaves are always wet. The ground is wet, the air is damp and so the leaves never get to dry out and crisp up. I do miss shuffling through a path of dry crunchy leaves and hearing the crunch underfoot.
In fact the day when these were taken, it was raining.
My mind keeps coming back to the poem
 "The Woods were silent, Dark and Deep"
These woods were not silent. If you listened closely there was a buzz of activity in progress. Even with all the people besides us that were out enjoying the fall day, the woods would not of been silent!
Shadow Shot Sunday 2
I love that the photos I took captured one small moment in the Forest life. It will not look like this ever again. It was a fleeting moment to experience and the next time I visit here it will be a totally different experience. Its always new.

Fall Tree

Photo Art Friday
The last of the leaves cling stubbornly to the tree. Fall is full upon us now and the limbs seem stark now against the backdrop of the moody skies.
Enjoy your upcoming weekend!!

Project 52 - Sad

Project 52 - p52 weekly photo challenge with Kent Weakley
I love my Saturday mornings. Sometimes I wait impatiently all week just for my Saturday morning!
I love sleeping in. When you have to get up at 4:30am on weekdays sleeping in on the weekend is pure bliss! Making coffee and sitting to read the morning paper in a quiet, calm and peaceful house! (Yes that is whipped cream on my coffee)
Pajamas and warm moccasins and relaxing on the couch watching old movies.
My cat Speed relaxing right along with me!
Double smoked Applewood thick sliced Bacon for breakfast. We love bacon here so much that when you cut your finger and need a bandaid it is a Bacon Strip Bandaid you get!
Yummy eggs, and of course just because we only do this once a week, those get fried in a bit of the bacon fat as well!
 Crisp oven roasted Bacon, Eggs and thin sliced Roma tomatoes! Could it get any better!
Dutch Chocolate Cake Coffee and a good book on my E-Reader after breakfast.
See why I love my Saturday mornings!
So what could possibly be sad about spending a wonderful and relaxing morning such as this??
It always ends, and I have to wait a whole week again for my next Saturday. How sad is that!?

Cool evening stroll along the White Rock Pier.
You can really notice the difference in temp when the sun starts to go down, especially on clear nights.

Love the reflections of the coloured lights along the shoreline.

Taken at Vedder River by the rapids.

And while you are waiting for your fisherman to catch dinner, take the dog out for a sporty walk!

A Few More Gerber Daisies

Hope you are not getting tired of seeing my Gerber Daisies. My last previous post is full of them as well!
I hope you can scroll down further and check those out as well!
I will have memories of these beautiful flowers long after they have gone.
Ruby Tuesday 2
My daughter and her best friend Mandy gave me these flowers last week. Mandy's family grow gerber daisies and their greenhouses supply these beautiful blooms to all of the mainland and parts further.
Sweet Shot Tuesday with Kent Weakley
I used a couple of Kim Klassen textures on each photo, and love the way it has added a depth to each of the photos.
Loving my Gerbers, they make a person happy!!
