Cemetery Brings Instant Creeps

This week’s Six Word Friday uses the word “instant” – Sometimes the cemetery brings instant creeps.  As much as I enjoy looking around Hollywood Cemetery, every now and then I’ll find something that with one look, is instantly creepy.  I don’t feel that way about much that’s there; most of it is really pretty.  This one though…

A Fall Walk

I love spending time on the weekends at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens.  Although they’re not big, they have a lot there and it changes every week. More and more I realize though that I don’t go there to think, meditate or even contemplate.  I find that as I wander around with my camera, my brain is…

A Spring Walk

A Walk In March

I took a walk at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens recently and thought you might like to come with, if for no other reason than to get some spring colors to cheer your day. I nearly didn’t go – the sky started out a flat, dull gray which matched my mood.  When the sky cleared,…

Taking A Walk In January

I got off work early enough on Saturday to take a walk at the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. Not too surprisingly, the gardens were fairly empty.  The temperatures have dropped considerably and the wind had a bite to it. I hadn’t intended to wear my winter coat to walk, but did so as I’d left my…
