~A Little Break Did Not Hurt~

A little refreshing was much needed. Somehow I had to rethink this year, as last year was a terror trying to get things done on the house and then posting with no time to have fun posting. Even my simple post of once a week got me weathered and worn by the end of the year on 365. So what is a blogger to do?! Well, for 365 days I have decided to take a break on the 365 Days blog and concentrate right here on the mother blog, Tales From My Lens.

To update, the past three months: rain rain rain, and because of the rain rain rain, the wildflowers are blooming and we are in the midst of the “Super Bloom”. The hills have been alive with orange poppies and now all sorts of wildflowers are popping up with bloom.


Super Bloom from hill to hill.

Getting back into the swings of things, i.e., blogging the Lens Artists Photo Challenge #38 is Weathered Or Worn. After getting weathered from the rains the garden took a hit, but it is going to recover with some care.


A weathered rose. Literally. The rains smacked the garden well. Recovery is in full motion and the bugs abound and waiting for me to shoo them off. You can see by this rose I have my work cut out for me.

The watch my father wore until the day he died.  The crochet blanket it sits on top is Grandma Celia’s from my husband’s family.  Treasured items.


A book dated 1911 is my new weathered read.  The photos in it are wonderful and the inscription is from father to daughter.

I have so much more to post but I think this is good for a first post of the year to warm back into things.  Thanks for popping in albeit three months into it, but refreshing and clearing was good.  A lot of cooking and eating helped too. *ugh*
