Angels have been mentioned throughout history and depicted in art, sculptures, stained glass and many other creative expressions across the millenniums. Regardless of your personal beliefs, they can be found in many cultures and religions. They are most seen as messengers or protectors sent to help you even when you cannot see them. They have been a favorite image to capture from the very beginning of my photography days. Since I can’t take a picture of a real angel, I capture them where ever I find them. I haven’t really shared them much with others until now. I hope you enjoy my collection of angels that I post. Here is the first one. I would love to hear from you if you love angels too. Thank you for visiting today. ~ terre
Here are some images from my 2016 trip through Scotland. I captured these with my old Nikon D50, which I have kept as my backup camera. I was so surprised when we arrived at Brig O’Doon… I thought it was only an imaginary place! I am so intrigued by the centuries and centuries of history when I travel in Europe and all the beautiful sites. I have no idea of who painted the man with the bird on the building or why, but it is just beautiful. If you know more, please enlighten us.
What a beautiful warm Fall day in Indiana! No problem with social distancing on this great day to be out. Just out looking to see what I could find and capturing more images towards my goal of photographing all the covered bridges in my state. Warm days like this is a true gift as we know there won’t be many more before old man winter is blowing his icy breath. Maybe the not too heavy of a coat on this wobbling caterpillar is a prediction that this winter will be a more mild one. Hope you liked this little sharing of Indiana. Thank you for visiting today. ~ terre
One of the things I miss most about todays world is the ability to freely travel. There is no better way to connect with other people than to share time, food, and learn about their world. It is so meaningful to share hospitality and just being in the moment with another within their own culture. I believe it is true that our world shrinks and can become more caring as we learn about each other’s culture and people. While on one of my many walks, I just happened to come across these beautiful doors while exploring about Rome. To say there is so much to find in Rome is an huge understatement! This is truly where I learned and understood the phrase ‘Rome was not built in a day’. Besides all the beautiful art, architecture, and friendly people… they have great music, wine, coffee, and make a great margarita to just sit and sip in one of their lovely piazzas. Yes, I enjoyed everything about Rome, including actually walking on the very same road as some of the greatest Roman rulers, and so much more. Oh, someday to go again. ~
Today is Friday and moving right along with the seasons. This is also my first journal entry in Terre’s Blog – Women of All Seasons. The world still remains primarily in shutdown and non-travel mode which is hard on everyone. Being home more though, has probably put me more in touch with my local nature, more so than other years. We even noticed the day that our tiny hummingbird friends took off for their sunny, warm vacation lands. They were so very entertaining as they guarded their feeders and sometimes flew up looking in the windows.
Even though I love Fall, the changing color of the leaves, pumpkins, apple cider, and warm sweaters; I find it bittersweet to say goodbye for another year to the gifts of this summer. This summer was the first time that our tomatoes did so good that we actually had green tomatoes on the roof of the house! We had never seen that ever here in Indiana. But I guess these gifts gives us more reasons to look forward to summer again next year. When it comes to Fall though, I don’t think I would make a very good tree. For I’m sure that I would have an argument about having to change colors knowing that I would have to then be bare, even if I would be beautiful first.
On another note, I still keep plugging away with my blog, though I haven’t been able to figure out SEO and some of the analytics that just don’t make sense. I so appreciate all my followers and readers that have been hanging in there with me on this learning journey as I try to get better.
Here are just a few images of the last of summer. Enjoy ~

A good sunny day for busy bee’s. Caught two different species working side by side on this brilliant yellow mid-west wildflower. You just never know what will catch your eye when on a walk about. Have a great day and thank you for visiting! ~ terre
Hello on this lovely Spring day! At least it’s Spring for those of us in the northern hemisphere. Today, I took just a little short walk in my little patch of woods. There is nothing like nature to lift your spirits! I found these Spring Beauties, yes that is what they are commonly called and it is easy to see why. I hope you enjoy them. Take care and hope you too get out a bit and enjoy some fresh air. Happy Earth Day! Thank you for visiting today.
