"Walnut" - Captured by Naomi Thomson, 2012

We have a walnut tree in our yard.  But quite honestly, I have no idea how you are supposed to get that thick green coating off of the outside of them... Any ideas?

"Blossoms" - Captured by Naomi Thomson, 2011

I'm pretty flowers that grow on trees are the most beautiful.  At least, in my opinion.  Maybe it's because they only come for a short period of time every year?  Makes them special, like Christmas.  :)

Lilacs for Mama

"Lilacs for Mama" - Captured by Naomi Thomson, 2012

I think lilacs are my favorite flower.  And since I know my mother loves them, this is something I love to bring in when they're in season.  Just wish they lasted longer... *sigh*  

Do you have a favorite color lilac?  I can't decide if I like these, the dark purple ones, or the white ones best... Probably I love them all.

Angel Chime

"Angel Chime" - Captured by Naomi Thomson, 2012

We have this set of wind chimes that looks like angels, all slightly tinted in pink and purple colors... Rusted over, from time, wind, and rain.  I love wind chimes; the music in the wind.  They remind me of precious times gone by and add a smile to every moment they move.

This was taken on the same day as my "Lavender Sunset" photo.  What a gorgeous summer evening!

"Spider" - Captured by Naomi Thomson, 2011

Taking this picture was an adventure; I don't like spiders.  At all.  But I will confess... I'm pretty proud of this picture.  Maybe because it's awesome... or maybe because I got close enough to take it, and I'm amazed at my own courage.  Not sure.

Lavender Sunset

There's nothing like a summer night out on a boat, with a lavender sunset on the horizon.  Beautiful.
