Views From The Garden

~Sky views from the front and back gardens

~May your trails be crooked, winding,
lonesome, & dangerous, leading to the
most amazing view, May your mountains
rise into and above the clouds.
~Edward Abbey

Wow! I looked at all your photos and I have to say - beautiful !
But did you make those collages with a background by Picasa or by other software? They look so good in that way.
I am "a lake person" and during summer I almost live in ( swimming ) or on ( boating ) lakes.
I came here through Quint`s blog.
And I am glad I came :)
Have a happy weekend!

I was reminded of Wordworths Poem

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.

It's been a while since I read any of Wordsworth so thankyou for reminding me to.

Hello there, Catherine.
Thank's for your kind comment.
Between us you are much better photographer than me... every day I visit tour blog but being a little bit unpolite cause I'm not commenting every day. But I want you to know it's an amazing project you have here. So let's keep visiting each other.

Hi Catherine ~~ Thank you so much for your comments Glad you liked the Poem, jokes and my Wisteria. It is lovely, but the wind makes the blossoms drop to be swept up or walked into the house.
I love your photos of clouds and the trees near your house. Take care,
Love, Merle.

this reminds me of laying on my back when I was a kid looking at the many clouds! We would also lay in the pool and talk about what we thought each cloud looked like! Thanks for the memory!

Cat--seeing these clouds just poured resolve and wonder in my bones. First there's the 'looking up' and then the magical way of clouds. Thanks so much for a wonderful collage.
P.S. the photo from my wordless Wedn. was one I picked up on Tues. at an antique mall for $.25 because as you can see part of it was missing. I loved it just the same. Wow, would I have liked to have met those women!
Happy weekend!
P.P.S. also loved your Dallas Cowboys quote.

Hi Cat. Have had such a lovely wander through your September/October pictures. What a fantastically beautiful spot you live in.

I hope you don't mind, I've captured one of your Sept. 17th pics of the ocean in rain - the colours are breaktaking. I want to be able to look at them again, and again.

I love your colour combination montages. Thank you for them all.

Oh my god......what a great view you have from your garden.
I'm a bit jalous.
Have a nice weekend.
