Lovely Southern California Weather for a Walk

Make Time for Small Reflections

Walking yesterday
with my sister ... Balboa
Island house for sale!

Unique animals
inhabit this pretty yard
along with flowers

Ruby Tuesday
Alas ... I've tried multiple times to add the rest of my walking pictures, but Blogger won't let me upload any more photos at the moment and I'm leaving for a Photography class ... so perhaps I'll add the rest later (or not). Hope everyone's having a great weekend!
With any luck, on Monday afternoon, you'll be able to see
additional pictures from my Balboa Island Walk
at Happily Retired Gal
Small Reflections ... Smile Back

Such a quaint house and I love that purple gate!
I love garden ornaments and these 'critters' make this garden very whimiscal.
Cute post and your processing is spot on for these.

What's the story on this house? It's very near you? I clicked on it and looked around for the longest time! The brickwork is amazing! and that long chimney! and the creatures! I would buy it just for the blue fence, clock, and silly bird!! This one is my favorite post of yours ever! I wonder if they would sell the bird, I'm just in love with it!!!!

Send some of that warm up my way would you? It's so cold here.

Have a great day and week ahead. Big hug. :)

Ralph said...

The details and decorations behind the gate are outstanding. The look of this scene, especially the donkey and cat, has the look of a watercolor, these items so nicely altering the complexion of the frame. Wonderful!

Manang Kim said...

The kind of front yard I do really like! Love the cat on top of the mailbox!

Tammie Lee said...

how very charming!
the critters look animated, as though they were added to the photos?

I understand letting go of things... on my mind to do so as well.
