Facades

Hello, Friends!  I like the beauty of the buildings/homes/architecture, landscaping and other scenery visible in the five(5) images, below.  The images of Italian homes are some of my favorites!  The colors are very serene.  I like the wrought iron of the railings, the bridge, the courtyard, lanterns, doors, planters, trees, the arches, the stone, among the other gorgeous features. of these buildings

This area of the yard is beautiful for a small picnic!
In this photo, I like the beautiful trees, the potted plants, the stone columns of the fence, the stone on the facade of the building and the picnic area.  Everything is so beautiful and makes this garden spot so inviting!



The potted plants are pretty; their bright colors look great  against the soft apricot color of the wall.
The doors, the wrought iron accents, the color of the wrought iron and downspout as well as the color of the wall make this home's exterior very pretty!

Architectural Beauty with Color

Today's post, my Friends, features beautifully-colorful architecture of various locations.  I'm a fan of cheerful colors, too.  So, seeing how other people have enhanced the exteriors of their buildings is a delight!  Somehow, these gorgeous colors on the buildings against the most-gorgeous scenery makes these locations look artistic!  The photographer, MariaMichelle did an excellent job of capturing the beauty of these colorful places, which are Cinque Terre, Italy, Malta, St. James's Church in Stockholm, Sweden, Valparaiso, Chile and Venice, Italy.  Wow, even the names of these places are beautiful.  These photographs inspire me to see these lovely places in person, sometime soon; I'd love to see these places with friends!  

In addition to the photos, I've shared a few paragraphs about each location from their Wikipedia pages!  So, enjoy the photos and perhaps, if you have not toured these pretty places yet, you'll be inspired to tour them soon, too!



Cinque Terre, Italy

Cinque Terre, Italy


"The Cinque Terre is a rugged portion of coast on the Italian Riviera. It is in the Liguria region of Italy, to the west of the city of La Spezia. "The Five Lands" comprises five villages: Monterosso al Mare, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore. The coastline, the five villages, and the surrounding hillsides are all part of the Cinque Terre National Park and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Over the centuries, people have carefully built terraces on the rugged, steep landscape right up to the cliffs that overlook the sea. Part of its charm is the lack of visible corporate development. Paths, trains and boats connect the villages, and cars cannot reach them from the outside. The Cinque Terre area is a very popular tourist destination." ~ Wikipedia/Cinque Terre

Baby Animals: Puppy Loved

Hello, Friends! Today's featured 'faves' are a delightful poem about puppies, by poet Holly Jamestone, along with images of cute puppies of various breeds! I think you all will enjoy this post!



Who Doesn't Love Puppies! 
 by Holly Jamestone



 Puppies love this big wide world
They smell like Mommy's milk

They nuzzle with a cold, wet nose




Their fur is velvet silk
 They're juvenile and innocent
The world's a better place

Baby Animals: Oh, Deer!

Hello! Today's featured image is of a baby deer! Isn't it beautiful. I love watching deer tip-toe through a yard as they eat. It's a delight to observe them so closely! Before returning to my hometown, Atlanta, GA, I had the opportunity to live on a multi-acre(s) farm surrounded by a dense forest on two sides, in Woodland, Alabama. Woodland was truly an appropriate name for the area I lived in, then! Almost daily, an entire deer family would emerge from the forest slowly, cautiously it seemed, and begin eating. Sometimes, I got to see them leap very high from a bank on one side of the dirt road to the other side. I had not known deer could leap so high! Enjoy the images of these beautiful creatures!

Beauties of the Bovine Kind

January 2015 has been delightful, so far, and as usual I'm thinking ahead, dreaming of more heart's desires to achieve. One of those heart's desires is to own a few cows of my own. So, it has been a delight to discover the numerous varieties of cows that exist! I did not know there are so many handsome/beautiful types/breeds of cow(s). I've discovered a few images of cows/bulls that highlight these rather cute creatures. Enjoy!

Psalm 1:1-3 (NIV) – Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
