Thursday, September 10, 2015


Jilda had a late class tonight so she sent me a text and asked if I'd fetch dinner. So I was off like a shot to get Chinese food. We're fortunate because we have a really good restaurant about 10 miles away. 

I called ahead and although they were packed, my food was ready so I was headed home in record time.

When I pulled into the drive the yard was in shadow except for a beam from the setting sun that somehow found its way through a thicket of pine, sweet gum, and hickory trees to highlight the barrel of impatiens at the entrance to our drive.

I pulled in and tried to snap the picture through my truck window, but the truck blocked the sunlight and spoiled the shot, so I pulled further into the drive, parked and walked back to snap the photo.

Welcome to our home.

There you have it. My sad little update for Thursday, September 10, 2015.

    Another beautiful photo!!

  2. What a beautiful photo! I love how you captured the sun's rays and the shadow below. So lovely! Thanks for sharing! This is my first visit here, and I am going to start following. :)

  3. Palpable light. Quite beautiful.

  4. I wish my eyes were as observant as yours.

  5. 10 miles is a long way to drive with a bag of spare ribs, egg rolls, low mein, and chicken and snow peas. The aroma would make me pull over and steal a few bites!

    And I'd miss the picture opportunity as well.

  6. I love it when Mr. Sun says, "HEY, LOOK AT THIS!"

  7. This was not sad at all. You captured a ray of sun in your otherwise darkening world. It was a joyous occasion. And a good picture.

  8. What's sad about it-sun dappling on beautiful flowers welcoming you home-how nice is that!

  9. I love Chinese food and I used to make mine from scratch. Now I don't eat soy so I miss it so much. Love that pretty photo of the flowers.
