Dandelion

“I was a dandelion puff…Some saw the beauty in me and stooped quietly to admire my innocence. Others saw the potential of what I could do for them, so they uprooted me, seeking to shape me around their needs. They blew at my head, scattering my hair from the roots, changing me to suit them. Yet still others saw me as something that was unworthy and needed to be erased.”
-Nicole Bailey-Williams

I took these pictures while I was cooking some chicken on the grill.

Two weeks ago the Weekly Photo Challenge was “Awakening” and it asked for photos that showed renewal. My original entry was a sunrise, and even though I would have like to entered one that showed nature being reborn after a long cold and snowy winter, it wasn’t quite ready. As you can see by this photo, the forsythia is blooming but the woods are still quite bare. We are finally starting to see some signs of spring!

One of my favorite things to do besides hiking is taking photos of my animals. We finally have a day with clear blue skies and a temperature hovering around 60 degrees. When it is as beautiful as this, our dog Jase knows that he will be able to partake in the warmth with us. He is quite the handsome fella!!!!

I took these photos the day after the second nor easter dumped 19.5 inches of the white stuff on us.

Story-WPC

The past week has not only been a difficult one for the humans in our house, but for our animals as well. Due to two nor Easter’s, we were left without power for just about seven days. As good as a friend as he is to us, I know that our dog Jase was as miserable as we were.

Knowing this, he was still the same happy member of the family that he always is. Needless to say, this pictures say it all!! I can’t tell you enough about what a great dog he is.
