Wordless Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday

Welcome to my second Wordless Wednesday post, graciously hosted by Dixie at French Lique, Texas. Visit Dixie at http://frenchlique.blogspot.com/ to visit all the other participants. Dixie has a fun and interesting blog, give her a look see! The word for this week is Love





Hope you enjoyed these pictures that represent love to me. Make sure to visit Dixie and see
what everyone else is sharing this week.



My second post today is for Outdoor Wednesday. Susan at A Southern Daydreamer started this fun event. Visit Susan's fabulous blog at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ to see a list of this week's participants.


This week I had planned on taking some outdoor shots around our little town - we are finally seeing a few little signs of spring. I've seen quite a few robins and lots of daffodils peeking up. We've had some rain and it's been very cloudy, so I didn't think that would put anyone in much of a spring mood. But I'm not going to complain, we desperately need the rain, and besides it washed most of the blankety blank cedar pollen out of the air! Anyone who is from or has lived in Central Texas knows that's nothing to sneeze at - pun VERY much intended. So, instead, I'll be sharing more pictures from St. George Island Florida. Hope you enjoy these little doses of summer!

Oops, sorry to disturb you Mr. Crab!

Hope you enjoyed these little glimpses of paradise. Jump on over to Susan's to see what everyone else is showing off this week.

Hi Kathy,
Those pics of St. George Island make me want to go there soooo badly. I love that crab, he is really a pretty color. I'm a recent empty nester myself (since last August) and it takes some getting used to. Cindy

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Kathy, I have no idea what happened to my post, but I thought I had left one! (cue Twilight ZOne music LOL!)

Love your family pics, and your pics for Outdoor Wednesday as well. That crab is too funny, but those pinchers look a bit dangerous. Wouldn't want to get on the wrong side of that! LOL!

So when I wish you a happy OW, that's one without a pinch! ;-)

XO,

Sheila :-)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Unless, of course, the pinch is comoing from someone you want to pinch you. ;-)

Southern Lady said...

Beautiful beach photos, Kathy. I love the little crab! I didn't know they could be so cute.

I enjoyed seeing your sweet family pictures, too ...

Sincerely,

Janie
