From Denver to Auburn for a Summer Visit

This week our family from out in Colorado came out to see us. We had my son (Bryan) and his wife (Sara), her mother (Karen), and their two previous kids (yes, our grandkids), who are 9 months (Luke) and 6 years old (William), out from Denver to visit with us. It was a short visit, but…

Project 365 [Day 158] Tree Swing on the Farm at Sunset

This is one of my favorite places in our backyard, and of course if you have been around this site for a while you will recognize the tree swing, but I keep finding unique ways to shoot it. I'm working on getting all the photos on my site of this swing to be searchable through…

Memorial Day Flag Flying from Auburn Alabama

I am glad we still celebrate Memorial Day in this country.  Somehow it seems that as the political correctness of our culture takes over everything we end up loosing an understanding of what made this country great in the first place.  It sickens me to see stories like the one of the Iraq veteran who…

Fog on a Never End Cycle of Rain in the Southern Winter

Fog on a never end cycle of rain in the south in the winter. You can see the puddles around the tree swing, and the dreariness in the air. Somewhere Spring is coming.

Another Beautiful and Colorful Fall Day in Alabama

What a difference just a few days makes in the fall. This is what our tree (and swing) looked like this afternoon.  Compare that to this Fall Has Finally Arrived in Alabama, and My Swing Loves It, taken just a few days ago. It was a totally different time of day of course, but the…

Fall Colors Arrive on My Tree Swing in Alabama

The temperature yesterday did get close to the forcasted 78*F but the leaves on the trees are starting to turn colors.  Our place is covered in a small forest of pine trees and just a few hard wood trees which are mostely these Sweetgum Tree which most people around this part of the country consider…

View of Our House from a Tree Swing :: Friday Feet

This is sort of a follow up to Do You Have a Quiet and Peaceful Place to Hide? which for some reason is one of my highest traffic posts and also A Foggy Summer Morning in Auburn Alabama (both different views of the swing).  This is yet another view from our tree swing, this time…
