Weekly Photo Challenge: lost in the details

Oh the wonder and intrigue of being “lost in the details.”

This is one big tree growing in someone’s yard, and spilling out onto the sidewalk.

A great discovery that my daughter and I found one day as we were taking a walk through her neighborhood.


Weekly photo challenge: changing seasons

Well, as people often complain around here, we just don’t have a real dramatic change in the seasons.

I’m not one of those people!  Actually, this is one of the reasons why I like living here so much!

It’s so beautiful almost all year round, and the changing seasons  just means something new and different is growing and blooming!

However, I do appreciate the beauty of change, and we are fortunate enough to see the beautiful fall colors on some of the trees, usually in late November and December.

This picture was taken on the Westmont Campus in beautiful Santa Barbara CA.

Yes, it really is a beautiful campus!  (A common refrain we often hear from anyone who has ever been on this campus.)
