Outdoor Wednesday ~ Back in the Hood…

It’s time to get your outdoor shots together for Outdoor Wednesday hosted by Susan a Southern DayDreamer! Thanks Susan!


It’s great to be in Sunny Southern California again and to resume my walks with Willow! Sheesh, it’s been over 8 weeks since we last walked! The sun peeked over the Santa Monica Mountains as we started out. Willow said “that’s a nice shot”. So I said, “Okay I’ll take a picture.”Β  When Bloggers walk they are always looking for a great shot.


After we made it up the first hill huffing and puffing a little (remember it’s been awhile since we’ve walked)Β  we spotted this great Poinsettia plant and I thought of Ruby Tuesday…except it’s almost Wednesday so this will work for O.W.

Hope your week is going well and that you are surviving whatever weather is being thrown at you!!

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.

  1. What a nice picture of the sun peaking over the mountain!
    You guyes in California are lucky – easy to see sunsets! On the east coast you have to be on the boat, or on some really curvy peninsular to see a nice sunset! Or get up really early to see the sun rise.

    …I am berried!

  2. Isn’t it the truth? Now that I’m blogging my camera goes every where with me. Glad you had yours along on your walk. These are great photos! ~ Sarah

  3. We have snow and icy sidewalks here in Illinois. Malls are a favorite place to walk here but I prefer staying in the house when it is 8 to 20 above zero. Luckily we have an exercise channel included in our Direct TV package. I am so happy that you have nice weather and a beautiful path to take. It is good for your heart to walk. Yea! I see you brought the camera along. Nice job!

  4. You at least have started doing what I need to do so badly. However, it is too cold here, but I will start soon. That plant is so pretty. Since I have not been to your part of the country much, I have seen one like it.

  5. I didn’t realize poinsettia plants grew that big. Then again, I never thought of them growing outdoors. Plants like that are not natural here in Arkansas, especially now with our frigid temperatures. Loved the pictures. Thanks,

  6. I loved your photo. I’ve never seen poinsettias growing outside a green house. It looks like you had a grand walk. Enjoy Outdoor Wednesday.

  7. Wow…and all this time i thought they just “came” in that lil green pot! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for sharing where they grow naturally.

    If you get a moment –would love you to stop by — I’m going to start a new meme –Friday– Finding Beauty that I would love you to join!

  8. It’s time for me to get back to walking, too! I had no idea Pointsettias would get so big *out in the wilds!* I have only seen them from greenhouses!
    Have a great Outdoor Wednesday!

  9. These are great shots, and it looks like the weather is gorgeous. Loved the photo of the poinsettias, I had no idea they were that tall! Happy OW!

  10. Hi, Ellen! Please, PLEASE send us some warm weather this way. We poor little Floridians don’t know what to do with this cold. It’s petrifying!

    Happy Outdoor Wednesday! Love your pictures and am glad you are out and about and having fun in Southern California!

    Hope your New Year is blessed…
