Friday’s Fave Five

It’s Friday and time to recall our favorites from this past week. Head over to Susanne’s at Living to Tell the Story to participate or see some favorites.


It was wonderful to have morning walks this week with Willow without our typical June Gloom. The skies were bright and we even had a few clouds mixed in with the blue!

The hydrangeas are blooming full right now and they always make me smile.

The birds are so much more active and visible when we walk in the morning. I’m happy when they sit still long enough for me to snap a photo.


I really have become a person who loves photography. If I can be out with my camera I’m a happy camper. I kept getting closer and closer to this critter trying not to scare it off it’s perch.


I’m not a sit on the beach all day kind of person but I do love early morning walks on the beach. Seeing any beach wildlife is such a bonus.

Looking forward to seeing your favorites from the last week later in the day. I’m driving across town this morning to take my Pop and Mom out for a Father’s Day breakfast with my sister Kathy. Have a wonderful Father’s Day and beginning of Summer weekend everyone!

Photobucket is holding all my photos that I stored on their site from 2007-2015 hostage replacing them with ugly grey and black boxes and asking for a large ransom to retrieve them. It is a slow process to go through all my posts deleting the ugly boxes.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. I think the photography helps us notice God in this big world. So much detail is lost on us…actually I think we don’t notice a lot as we hurry through life. All this blogging photography slows me down and reminds me to notice the world around me…and there He is. Have a grand weekend Ellen!

  2. The hydrangeas are beautiful – I don’t think I’ve seen that color here.

    I really enjoy your photography and seeing your area of the country. As Pam said in her comment, it really helps us to focus on our surroundings and enjoy the beauty we find there.

    Have a wonderful weekend Ellen!


  3. My hydrangeas are blooming too (well at least one is – the other one looks like it won’t perform this year).

    I’m the same way with photography – Roger and I were out for a drive the other evening and saw the most gorgeous sunset – I was so annoyed my camera was home!

    Have a wonderful time with your dad, mom and sister.


  4. The lizard shots turned out great as did the birds. Will we ever get a good bunny photo?

    Have a good day with your mom and dad!

  5. Thanks for sharing your beautiful pictures with us! I never noticed much of the beauty around me until I had started blogging and seeing what everyone else posted. I began to see that there was beauty around the area I live in, too! Now, I try to take my camera wherever I go.

  6. Hi Ellen B,

    If you put peanuts out for that Scrub Jay he’ll come visit you every morning and he may even bring some friends! What a wonderful week you’ve had and what a collection of cloches!!!

    Have a lovely weekend!!!!

    xoxo Cori G.

    I’m spending a great deal of time with hubby right now…telling him what to do and how to do it…OH MY ;-0!!!!!

  7. What beautiful pictures you take, my gosh, you are a great photographer. I am going to save your blog so I can really check it out when I am not so busy.

  8. i love popping by and seeing what excites you….
    Isn’t it wonderful to have a walking friend and sharing photography?
    I’ll miss you on Monday…

  9. I am the same way about enjoying photography. It also makes me see everything differently. I loved all of these shots. You have such wonderful walks.
