Hearts Galore ...Plus

I'm late in getting started for the day in blogging...If you have visited here in the past, you already know that I stop and take a picture of something I find that is heart shaped. Sometimes, I've been known to backtrack when it dawns on me that I missed one. My photos are usually something that is outdoors, as I walk trails, but...



...they could be something indoors too. For instance this one:




Did you find the heart? In any case, I also mentioned in the last blog post that I may begin to use props for new entries here at Hootin' Anni's. So, without further adieu, let me introduce the crowd pleasing, celebrated, Ella Phantz-Gerald. She's quite old as far as age goes, but she can be quite active. She's small for her species; only 4 feet in length, but she has a soft side! And every once in a while, you'll see her lurking at this location! Stay tuned.

Ps...the heart on Ella is at the tip of her trunk.

    1. Ella is a bit excited to join Hootin'. She almost peed her pants, but I reminded her about the fact TP is a no-no right now.

  2. She's a cutie all right. And I did find her heart before you told me where to look. Is that first picture a leaf or something edible?

  6. I love taking pics of the different hearts I see also. Yours are GREAT! Love Ella's heart too. ;-) Last night I had a dream about finding a heart sticking out of the sand, and when I went to pull it out, I uncovered a bunch more of all sorts, stone, glass, plastic, etc. A happy dream.

    Be well, stay safe ~ FlowerLady

  8. That first leaf was just stunning. I was thinking the pink part of her ears but the tip of the trunk is perfect. Looking forward to more Ella.

  9. I love all those hearts, Anni. Isn't it funny how things seem to magically "appear" when we're conscious to look for them? Your pictures always brighten my day.... and today is no different. Love, Andrea XOXO

  10. I love elephants. And our sweet girl we used to babysit, who has cystic fibrosis is totally in love with elephants, her name is Ella. I spotted the heart, and look forward to this cool game!! All your heart photos are wonderful, and full of light and charm.

  15. Interesting heart shapes in nature. When we have our senses trained to spot a certain shape, it is amazing just how often it shows up.
