Hello Friends! Tonight’s Feature Image is titled “Silky Dogwood 90521” and is available for purchase by clicking the thumbnail and reaching out to me on the contact page.

The sun sleeps in a little more each day and goes to bed earlier each night. We tend to associate the changes in season with the changes in the weather but that’s really not how it works. The angle of the sun and earth changes slightly and the wavelength of light triggers small changes in everything. The dogwoods are among the first to give us a clue. Their leaves began to turn blood red and signal that their fruit is ripe. The Elderberry like flowers have given way to bright blue berries. The silky dogwood is a native of the Appalachian Mountains but one that’s unfortunately overlooked. The berries are edible but unlike most other dogwood berries they are blue instead of red. Rumor has it that they’re also quite tasty! But tonight my thoughts are about the signal that they send as to the closing of Summer and the time of harvest. And while we expect summer like weather in the next few days the morning is a little cooler and the nights are less humid. The color of the wildflowers is also shifting to yellow and the blue asters are starting to pop up. They say that the only constant in life is changes and so I guess that if you’re seeing changes then it means you still have life to enjoy them.

Good night friends and be blessed throughout your days.

Announcement 2.0

For those who have been following me on Facebook and know of the struggle content providers have to get circulation from big tech I’ve been recommending for people to adopt MeWe as a social media platform. One of the problems I’ve run into on MeWe is that people don’t know how to navigate the platform. So to help with that I’ve created a permanent page on my website as a basic Basic Beginner’s Guide To MeWe I’ve tried to anticipate all basic questions there and You can bookmark the page to have as a reference and if you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to contact me. I do still have a day job and I help admin several pages on both platforms so replies might be a little slow but I will answer you.

We also have the Lloyd’s Lens Photography Discussion Group on MeWe that is set up as a fully functional community. There you’ll not only be able to see and connect with me but you can also make your own posts and interact with each other.

I want you to join my group on MeWe:
