Around Home


  • a day of staying put
  • sunshine
  • hanging around at home
  • zinnias with and without color
  • bright berries
  • blue skies
  • driveway loops
  • swing set

Yesterday we stayed put. Four days a week at least, we are somewhere else besides home, so staying at home was a treat.

After walking twenty two driveway laps, I ventured around the yard in search of something to photograph. The zinnias we planted for my momma and a tree with bright orange berries seemed like a good place to be.

Even the swing set seemed to sing, with its dark green slide and seats. Most of our yard has taken on a tan-brown view because of endless droughts this year.

Other shots are somewhat random, but I like how they turned out. It’s funny what can make a great photograph sometimes.

Today we are off again on grand adventures that include decorating a float for an upcoming Christmas parade. With cooler temperatures, I will be including long johns and a coat, ha ha.

Hope you have a wonderful Friday. Thanks for being here.

  1. Zinnas are one of my favorites. This last year we had a whole row planted just outside the patio windows where I sit and read. The seeds were given to me from my daughter in North Carolina who had kept them from your flowers the year before. That made them very special.

    • Hi. Sorry it’s late, we were out most of the day and evening. A nice day at home sounded pleasant- especially the gentle rain part. Glad the winds skipped you. Thank you, I’m very happy you enjoyed my photos. That makes me smile.

    • Hi! Thanks so much. Those zinnias were such a welcome sight this spring and summer. Love that some are still blooming in November. Nothing beats home, but exploring is fun and heals the heart, too. Hope you have a nice weekend as well.
