I’d walk a mile for a (smiling) camel. 🙂

Currently blooming in my southern New York State Garden, the Star of Bethlehem (Ornithogalum) is a bulb that can be found in many parts of the world. Considered a weed by some, it’s got to be tenacious to survive the jumble in my wildly overgrown perennial garden!
It looks like this little dog has his owner trained to focus on the bubble quite well! 😉

“Fill your house with stacks of books, in all the crannies and all the nooks.” ~Dr. Seuss
I, for one, take Dr. Seuss seriously! This is a small sampling of the wide variety of books, new to well-worn, that fill our home; stacked up in random piles here and there, next to beds, on tables, cabinets, and of course, shelves. 🙂
For more Dr. Seuss fun visit my February 22, 2015 post which includes a wonderful video rendition for grown-ups of Oh, The Places You’ll Go filmed at the Burning Man Festival in the Black Rock Dessert of Northern Nevada.
The quote above is the second of three which I’ll be posting in response to the Three Quotes Challenge that Gabriele, who authors Flights of Fancy, invited me to participate in. You can find the first quote here.
This post is also my response to Jennifer Nichole Wells’s One Word Photo Challenge: Book.
Buds burst open, squeezed through twig, branch, and bark. Straining toward a lush green future. Seeking the light and warmth of spring. Copyright ©2016 Terry Boswell
I took this photo one morning last week in my backyard. The sun came out strong after a soaking mix of rain and sleet. Everything was shimmering with light. The conditions were perfect to satisfy Jennifer Nichole Wells’s One Word Photo Challenge: Bokeh, and the resulting photo works for The Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Future, as well. Buds and new growth always speak to me of a promising future.

I took the photo above last fall at Goosepond Mountain State Park, Chester, NY. The road that you see, or what’s left of it, is Lazy Hill Road. At one time it connected Route 17m to Laroe Road, but it’s only been open to people on foot, bicycle, or horseback for many years. The shaded main trail is an easy hike spanning 2.6 miles one way, and 5.2 miles round trip; a lovely place to ramble for a few hours or to spend some energetic time out with the dog! 🙂
