As I was walking into the house a few days ago I looked off to my right as I was entering my house and saw all the buds on the Rhododendron bush.

I decided it would be fun to photograph the growth of the bud as it grew into this bright large blossom.Copy of growing

Round Robin ~ Floating

Yesterday I went out with camera in hand to see what I could find for current Round Robin Challenge. Unfortunately, the memory card I grabbed was one I couldn't use.

I saw some beautiful geese floating on the pond near some turtles sunbathing on a rock with pink flowering trees reflecting in the water. It was peaceful, serene and most beautiful. And I couldn't photograph what I saw. ::sigh::

This morning I saw other entries for the Round Robin and I was shocked, two weeks has passed ALREADY! Oh my, it means going through my files and looking for old photos that will fit this theme.

This first photo is a youth group floating (aka kayaking) on the river.

Sonny and I went to Eastern Washington to check out a hot air balloon festival. What a sight to see all the vibrant balloon colors floating in the early morning sky.

In Tacoma, we've had a couple Tall Ship Festivals. The first was my favorite. This is Lady Washington as she is coming into port. Isn't she exquisite?

Here is a starfish that floated to shore providing a photo op.

This last photo might be pushing it a bit. I say the kites are "floating" in the air. This man was so much fun to watch, he did maneuvers that made you feel as if you were watching the US Navy's Blue Angels!

So, that's what I found in my old files. I apologize for not providing something new. Please take a moment to check out the others who participated in this photo challenge - Round Robin.

FYI - I'm HOME now! :-)

Round Robin ~ See The Music!

Once again I was thinking I was going to have to send an e-mail to Karen & Carly telling them I'd need to pull out. Not for lack of photos or ideas!

This time, I find myself writing this from Fort Mead near Baltimore, MD. I'm here visiting my son who has started a new job with the Baltimore PD. His wife is deployed on the USS Comfort - a medical ship on a goodwill mission until August. My purpose here is to assist with the care of my beautiful granddaughters.

The problem? My photos are in WA! So, I went to my old blog and found the following two photos from a concert I attended last September featuring country singer Sara Evans.
