We are wishing you a peaceful and fun week. xox

Your posted comments add delight to our blog. Thanks.


  1. You know how much I love Zoe! Such a 'doll'. Of all the good stuff you have going this week...I favor the shadows at twilight...exceptional

  2. Nice collection - my favorite is the second one fire in the clouds.

  3. Thanks for the tour. Love the white on white of the seagull on the porch.

  4. A great week's photos - you caught those rays of sunshine well. Zoe looks very peaceful. Have a wonderful week!

  5. I love the back of your angel...what a pretty painting! Hugs!

  6. I love the poem. Here in Oklahoma I love how the wheat sways with the wind.

  7. What a lovely series of pictures! Wishing you a beautiful day!

  8. wonderful quote to set the tone for your lovely post Carol. Yes, it is so good to see blue skies after lots of dark grey days. Love all the photos, and your angels are truly delightful! And of course, I AM partial to your 4 legged angel:) Have a great week!

  9. Such gorgeous sceneries! I especially love the photo with railroad tracks. Beautiful straight line and dreamy sky!
    Is Zoe napping between cushions? What a sweetheart :-)

    1. Yes, little Zoe is napping on our chocolate velour couch ~ and loves the blankets that I have on the back of the couch ~ thanks for your lovely comment ~ xox

  10. I always look forward to your sky and water photos. I live land locked, with houses and wires surrounding. I get such a small glimpse of the sky unless looking straight up. I guess that is why I enjoy it when the sun seeks me out. Sweet sketches and little Zoe in her winter cocoon.

  11. Your Zoe always delight my heart, even much more than your stunning skies ... with their love our creatures bless our lives and make of us better persons.

    Hope you're having a great week so far,
    I'm sending hugs and more hugs to you, darling friend

    XO Dany

  24. It looks so peaceful at Cape May. Lovely sunset-twilight shot. Nice fence, it's good that the gulls seem to enjoy landing on it. Zoe is cute as a button again.

  25. Your drawings have a special sweetness to them! And your photos quite beautiful. Thanks for sharing it all!

  26. Water and blue skies... what more could you ask for?! Oh, and seagulls... although they can be very importunate I still love those birds! Your haiku is wonderful too. Big hug from one 'Ocean girl' to another... Love from ZEEland (the region in the Netherlands where I live)

  27. If we don't learn to sway with the wind, the wind will break us.

  28. Luv the angels. Happy PPF
    much love...

  29. Oh what lovely photos and angels too! Zoe is so sweet and your haiku is beautiful too.

  30. Hello, gorgeous sky captures. The clouds looks beautiful. I love the angels. Happy Friday, enjoy your weekend!

  31. Like your winter, we have had ever changing rains. Some have stormed relentlessly and some are as light as a spring shower. But, in the end, all are long lasting and leave us, in California, with the hope of the passage of a sustained and years long drought. Today I awoke to hard rain and now I'm enjoying white, fluffy clouds. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

  32. to unburden my heart i am sharing my comment from my visit to lea-
    to be with you is a healing so needed. thank you; my heart is crushed. some moments i can hardly breathe. my heart is with humanity. my heart is in protecting the earth. my heart is in responsible living where we protect the future for those who will inherent from us and our actions. i have always chosen the highest and best good for all-not just a handful of the very rich. my heart is with the disenfranchised- of which i find myself in the cross hairs. lifetime caps is a death sentence for me as my treatments will reflect these caps in far less than a year. without treatment i will not last one year. this is my reality and even as i face eminent danger for my well being my heart never stops beating for us all.

  33. I do love all the sky shots. Have a beautiful weekend!

  34. Hi angels, come over to my place.
    And make my dreams sweet and beautiful.

  35. The light in your skies are amazing Carole, your haiku lovely, my wish also to learn... sweet dreams little Zoe, dreaming of summer sun dappled beaches...

  36. Hello, love the birds and your sweet dog. Great critters. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

  37. Twilight is an enchanting time of day. I love your shadows!

  38. I should let my cats be my muse again and do a funny cat illustration.

  39. Hi Carol-
    You know the Seagull looks cold? :)
    I love your angel drawings and the photos - especially the clouds of the evening/morning and the puffy white ones.
    Have a Happy Weekend!
    Peace :)
