“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

This week's theme - WATER

Since most of you who know me, know that I live just 5 minutes from the Gulf Shore Coast! And y'all expect that since the subject for this week's photo hunt theme is water, well---you expect something from the gulf shores? Showing off the beauty of the sandy beaches and the wave actions? Right?

Sorry....not this time!!!

Today, tho I was tempted to throw you really off kilter and show water coming from the water purifier at the kitchen faucet, I nixed that idea too. And went with this....

WATER DROPLETS -or, WATER BEADS

Just after the sprinkler system shut off, I ran out and clicked away at my climbing rose. [I have it where it's growing up and entwined through a Texas sage bush. In the summer, there are purple flowers on the sage, and what a beautiful combination] ~Click on either to enlarge if you wish.

  7. These are great Anni! I had thought AFTER I posted the bird in the tree with the raindrops the other day, that I SHOULD have saved that for today! BUT... I have SO many pictures of water to choose from that it really wasn't a problem to come up with something -- more like a problem to CHOOSE! LOL!

  25. I published this morning our adventure going to Durango in 1971 I suppose everything has changed by now ! There were no European tourists in the States at that time and it was very difficult to get to the US only family was allowed.

  28. Anni,

    You touched a soft spot in my heart with these beautiful photos. I adore roses of all types and these are gorgeous.

    Sorry I have been so out of touch recently. This moving ordeal has me hopping and doesn't leave much time for anything else (i.e.,blogging)...

    Hope you're well, dear lady!

  30. Alas I did not play SPH this week but I kinda did (cheated). I'm not looking for a lot of visitors because I have too much to do so don't feel obliged to drop by.

    I did tag you for a meme though, when you have some free days on my meme blog About ICL

  33. Hey we had a climbing rose at our other house. It climbed up a trellis to the deck off the bedroom. It was beautiful. We had that intertwined with some purple passion flowers. I agree, red and purple do look great together.

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful roses!! Happy Hunting :)
