MAKES ME SMILE!

I AM ALWAYS PLAYING CATCH UP!
How about you? 
Do you find yourself wanting to do something 
then having time just slip away?
I missed Vee's Note Card  that started today.
I didn't make it but I am sharing anyway.

I chose some previously published pictures
that represent moments that made me smile.
They still do! How about you?

A glacier in the Juneau Ice Fields, Alaska.
Native Beauty Berry, friend's garden, Skidaway Island, Georgia
Sunset over Rend Lake, Benton, Illinois
A little friend waiting patiently for lunch.
Calla Lily foliage, my garden.
This tree is located in a median and crosses the street and comes to rest in this homeowner's yard.
Perhaps my favorite, Live Oak Tree. State Tree of Georgia.
Located on a suburban street in Savannah, Georgia.


Please join me at these lovely ladies' parties:

I am so glad you came by! Please stay a while and leave a comment.

Gorgeous photos - I've never seen that berry plant - it's beautiful!
Thanks for sharing -
( I was born late - and have been trying to catch up ever since )

All great pics! I'm guessing that berry isn't edible, but it sure it pretty:@)

Vee said...

Oh you do some traveling I see! Delightful photos and just because the green of his skin so perfectly matches the foliage, I choose that one as my favorite. What an incredible tree! They'd have that cut down and sawed into logs so fast here...it would be tragic. I loved seeing that. Nope, not too late. The party doesn't close until 10 this morning.

Each and every image made me smile, Ginger:)

I actually tried to grow a bush with similar berries. I'm not sure if we have the right climate here. I think it is coming up in the garden but guess I have to wait and see.

Love that tree draping in someone else's yard. I will be making back to Georgia one day, I WILL!

Thank you so much for sharing and thank you for joining us at the picnic. The letter H is yours!

Wow, I totally get how time slips away! I am not partial to cold and Ice, since I grew up in Minnesota, but I love your green frog, what an amazing picture, along with the sunset and Savannah! Thank you for your sweet comment on my sons graduation, I am still on cloud 9!

Dearest Ginger,
What a lovely post and I LOVE that Live Oak. Did not realize that it is indeed our State Tree (Georgia)... Thanks for your wisdom and for sharing it in such a beautiful visual manner.
Tonight my blog post will be about moving Google Reader to Bloglovin' as Reader will retire on July 1st. So pass it on...
Hugs,
Mariette

Pamela Gordon said...

These are all beautiful photos! I love the one of the ice field. It looks so earie. And the one of the tree that is so huge and spreading is just amazing. Great choices for notecards! Pamela

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

Wowsers, you're a fantastic photographer. That live oak is something else! I also love the little frog....he's camouflaged on the lily!

I really enjoyed these photos.

Are you kidding Ginger. Time goes so fast for me. I don't have a clue how others get so much done. Those photos are spectacular. I never knew the name of that berry. We have them around here too. I love the live oak photo. You live in such a pretty neighborhood. We have lots of moss hung live oaks and water oaks too. I don't know anywhere their more beautiful than Savannah though. You and Bob are always in my thoughts and prayers. I hope things are good for you both.

Hugs… Tracy@CottonPickinCute

JoAnn @ SweetPepperRose said...

Ginger, these pics are all gorgeous! I love sunset photos. And I NEVER get tired of see those moss covered oaks when we're down in Savannah... we gonna get together one of these days!

Nice photos! Love the beauty berry and the tree frog ones.

The French Hutch said...

Beautiful photos. I have to say that tree got my attention right away. I love trees and this one has to be truly special. If only trees could talk...........
Happy Summer.

Jane@Cottage at the Crossroads said...

Ginger, I enjoyed seeing your photos, and I'd have to say the frog sitting on your lily has to be my favorite! We love live oaks too, and we've planted 7 of the Crossroads. Of course, they won't be majestic like the one you photographed until we're long gone. But we like to think that someone will appreciate them in the future!

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Beautiful images my friend and they make me smile too! I love the Little green friend in your calla lilly foliage..so cute! The huge tree is amazing and beautiful too! Thanks for your sweet and kind comments lovely lady, you made my Sunday morning!
Love,
Fabby

DearHelenHartman said...

What lovely images! That last Live Oak is breathtaking. I once wrote a book with Live Oaks in it and had to do battle with the editor who didn't understand that it was a KIND of tree, not a description of an oak tree that wasn't dead :)

Curtains in My Tree said...

Hi Ginger
I love the Savannah trees

How are things in Savannah since the big Paula Deen scandal?

I hate it so bad for her and her family and especially upset with the food network for taking her off the air ??
what is the word around Savannah about this lady Lisa Jackson who brought a suite her ?? does that woman still live in Savannah

a lot of questions I know

Janice
