52 Photos Project/Week 46

What is home to you?
A place?
A person?
A room?
A feeling?
Where do you go 
when it's time
to go home?

 This Is Home
and my sisters will always be home!
I live in Santa Fe, NM, the high mountain desert (7000' above sea level), and Santa Fe is where I was born, raised and live - but when I think about home, the greatest feelings of being home, of the emotion evoked by being home, it will always be near the ocean!  I love the ocean, I feel like I am home when sitting seaside, watching/listening to the waves, the sea birds - for me that is being home!

{Texture Tuesday} happy heart

For this weeks edition of Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday, we were to use at least one copy of her gifted texture, "happy heart".

Appropriate, at least for me; my heart is happy, for a lot of reasons, but also because spring is coming which was evident when I saw the tight little buds popping out on my old native apricot!

Your Sunday Best #6

Had great plans for Nancy Claeys (A Rural Journey) 'Your Sunday Best', and that plan was to take some photos of spring!

I know better than that!  Spring has not sprung, except for in my imagination; just because the sky is blue and the sun is bright, it is still cold, and no matter how hard I try, I can't change the timing of spring in the high mountain desert!

What I did find though was new spring green nettles on the pines, a sure sign spring is coming . . .

Spring I
Spring II
Spring III
All photos were rendered by blending various filters in PSE, and Spring I has a new grunge texture (#8) by Nancy Donaldson at all pulped out.

Spring is sprung
Da grass is riz
I wonder where dem boidies iz
Da little boids is on da wing
Ain't dat absoid
Da little wings is on da boid
