Bits and Pieces

One of my favorite blogging buddies, is Gail and many of us know how funny and incredibly witty she is.  Well, she recently offered a post that really resonated with me.  Even now.  She shared engaging photos of objects but not the entire setting surrounding it.

Mr. Old Maple Tree Man watches over us.

Sweet puppy love.

Happy Tuesday afternoon from the garden!

A Good afternoon always consists of conversations with a jolly, Garden Gnome!

Can you catch a critter hiding in this tree stump?

There he is! 

May your Tuesday afternoon be filled with happiness and maybe a few frog kisses too!

Karen, wonderful closeups! I love the sweet pup! And the Old Maple tree man. The Opera Lady looks like a great greeter. The gnome and frog are cuties and made me smile. I hope you are having a happy Tuesday too!

The maple tree is fabulous, but so, too, is your sweet dog and the delightful opera singer. You master the close-up!
