In the Pink

Please pray for the families that have lost loved one and homes in the recent tornadoes.


At dusk last night the deer came down to graze our homestead. I saw this particular young buck through the geraniums in front of the window and loved the vignette. With the evening light it already had a dream-like quality, so I just enhanced it a bit with photo editor. You can't really see the deer's antlers, so just let me tell you they're little more than spikes.

For those of you who hate word verification (and believe me, I don't blame you) I've disabled it on all my blogs, including my new one "A Joyful Cottage". If you hesitated to enter our giveaway at A Joyful Cottage because of word verification, please know that I have just discovered it was enabled and I have thrown the annoying thing out. So feel free to click here and enter the giveaway. I really think it's worth doing so. We're offering a lovely 5x7 print of my husband's original artwork. 

Blessings,

Nancy

  6. Love the pic! I also just discovered my comments had the verification too. I had no idea. I hate it and I was so glad to get rid of it. Ah. Thanks for doing that and I hope everyone else figures it out too. It's such a pain.

  7. Sure, Nancy, this is a beautiful pic! There is some kind of magic into it!

    I saw the news yesterday, and I was horrified about all the destruction the tornadoes have made. It's really sad.

    Regards from Barcelona.

  11. A cousin of my was spared in the Joplin tornado, her house was damaged but repairable and the only house standing for blocks around... she was a church when it struck... I do pray for those families, I cannot imagine their grief and loss. I do love your photo today, the soft focus is absolutely lovely. Thank you for sharing on 'Weekly Top Shot.' I hope you'll come share again next week...
