If you have photos of threes why not join in and share your trios. No deadlines, no special format, any group of three (people, animals, flowers, things). Just copy my link and paste it into your post and that way I’ll get a pingback and I will leave you a comment.

Our Old Trusted Friend

….on this day, August 26, International Dog Day I am dedicating this page to Frances

Frances came into our lives over 14 years ago when she was only two months old. My husband has always said the she is the best dog he’s ever owned. I say he because Frances is truly my husband’s dog but in the last few years when her energy levels dropped and she was only interested in short walks I’ve become the dog walker in the family.

Saturday Sloth (or Sunday Sloth)

….a new art challenge for Kevin

A while back our five year old granddaughter wondered by Papa didn’t make Saturday Sloths. Kevin couldn’t ignore the request so he has now added sloths to his collection of drawings. Sloths are slow and can be characterized as lazy so if Kevin doesn’t get the sloth drawn by Saturday he doesn’t feel bad.

This week’s sloth is my favourite so far so I’ve decided to share it with you.

Well, Hello There!

….sometimes I get to see some unexpected wildlife on my walks

This week the ducklings were playing near the water’s edge with Mom and Dad close behind.

On my way back home as I turned the bend in the road there in the middle of the path stood this lovely rabbit. He stood perfectly still. I think he thought if he didn’t move I wouldn’t notice him but when I stepped closer he hopped off quickly into the tall grass.

I Immediately Saw a Pig

….after laying down random splashes of watercolour

Once I saw the pig I couldn’t get him out of my mind so I knew that I had to include him in my next intuitive art piece. After I drew the pig I started to see other animals and of course more flowers appeared.
