My Friday Favorites

Tuesday morning it was sunny but not too hot, so I decided to put on my hat and sunscreen and take a hike up on North Mountain to look for bugs and butterflies and play with my camera. It is a favorite spot for Buddy and me as it is only about 15 minutes from our house. How lucky we are to have such beauty so close by... lots of trails and out-of-this-world views of Virginia and West Virginia. Here are a few of the pictures I took including a moth and a frog...I could’t resist including them. Be sure to click on the mosaic so the shots will be enlarged and you can see the beauty of these magnificent creations of nature. The grouping as it appears here on Blogger just does not do them justice. Many thanks to Vicki over at Cherry Chick for suggesting I use my butterfly photographs for this week’s “Friday Favorites”.


  1. Dear Genie, Thank you so much for your comments on my blog. I am so happy you did as it led me to your wonderful blog. An English teacher, my favorite people of all! If I could have been anything in my life.... Virginia, a place I know well. Your words perfectly describe the simple beauty of an old place. My favorite music comes from songs written about your area during the Civil War. Your quilts are lovely, I am struggling to finish my first one. Your photographs are so enjoyable. A good camera is on my wish list! I'm happy to discover someone else who adores ME, "Queen of Everything" cute as can be! Such a fun visit, I'll come again. Elizabeth

  2. How wonderful! I'm so happy that you chose to share your nature photos in a mosaic. You made a great collection and did it so well. I left you come comments on your Flickr copies of the photos. I knew you would get the hang of the mosaics in no time! It's fabulous.
