Photography and Haiku Poetry Wed and Th

And you think I am 'just a dog'? for Blog Paws Wednesday

For Carpe Diem  ~ prompt ~ 'Tower' from Tarot Cards

Misty Morning Sunrise for Outdoor Wednesday

Poppies sprouting up everywhere for Rurality Blog Hop

'A' is for Art in the Park for Alphabe Thursday

Sending lots of healing energy and prayers to those suffering from tornados and much worse weather than we have.
 Mother Nature is sure spinning us around.
My 'yorkie assistant' and I have managed some walks despite the weather. Grateful, as my mind needs periodic clearing and walking does that for me and I also sleep better. Nature is where I played as a child and I still love to be out doors. ^_^
