I HAVE NOT GIVEN ANYONE PERMISSION TO COPY OR PUBLISH MY PHOTOGRAPHS.
The Peacock watercolour is mine, done by me and now used on another person's blog as well.
While flattering, it is also invasive...
Please ask permission~
Life changes things when we least expect it.
Another reason to cherish it and everyone~

Maggie's MOSAIC MONDAY
Wednesday Around the World at Communal Global
I made a visit to Cave Hill Cemetery last week and photographed one of my favorite memorials there. Near the front center of the cemetery is this gorgeous memorial to honor a woman by the name of Florence, who was the wife of Preston Pope Satterwhite. He used the idea for the structure from the Temple of Love, built for Marie Antoinette~
While there I came upon this little group of interesting Geese and learned that they are called Sebastopol Geese. With them was the most darling Duck that was running after them...well guess what it's called? A Runner Duck. They don't waddle, but rather run~
Are they not all adorable!!!
We have had mad dashes of snow this past week, not the kind they are having on the Eastern seaboard, but an inch, or two every few days.
The wee little Yellow-rumped Warblers came in nice numbers to partake of the suet~
A first year Red-shouldered Hawk, what a stunner~
Dark-eyed Junco checking out where it wants to flit to next~
Red-tailed Hawk down the lane has paired up and may be setting up a nest~
In my rides into town for my last week of physical therapy, yes my last week, since October, I came upon this beauty last week and saw it again out in the snow covered pasture in recent days.
Of course I had to stop and take a few more pictures. I believe it is a Friesian gelding and will find out soon more about him. Why? Because I have ordered some prints of him to gift to the owners, whom I don't even know...yet ;)~
We had 4 bucks and 12 does and fawns in the yard the other evening. I had to take the pictures just as the sun was lowering and through glass and so they aren't great, but wanted to use them~
I have helped move fawns, baby ducks, opossums, goats, horses, cows, even a Golden Eagle in South Dakota...squirrels and turtles across the road, and now this... Yes I know it's a Skunk...but it was a very young one and it had just been struck by a car. I found it on the far side of two lanes, going in circles, most probably from a head injury. It was trying desperately to gain it's balance and finally it leveled off and that was when it decided to try and cross the street again, and that was when I stepped in to help. I slowed the obliging drivers down just for a minute to allow the Skunk to get safely across. No one yelled, no one honked, it went very well. Now as for the Skunk...not sure, but just had to hope that it would rest and then rouse up feeling better and do whatever it is that Skunks do~
Snow cub fun~
Recently I learned of an app for my Android called Waterlogue. It transforms images into digital paintings, using different applications. I took some of my favorite photos and gave it a try...you can too~
A very special place for me, Rosewell~
White-tailed Deer fawns~
Special home I spent time in as a teenager, now vacant along the Ohio River Scenic Route~
