An award

This is another one scanned in from a 35 mm slide...taken in January of 1997. I take pictures of milkweed pods almost every year....and I still love to see them float through the air just like I a kid.
Now, for something fun.....
Earlier this week, The Tile Lady at A Colorful World gave me a Hot Blog Award.
I want to take time to thank her for this. I know I don't act much like it, but they do make me feel good;-)

I really, really enjoy blogging and love getting comments and awards. And I love it when I find blogs that I go back to over and over. I thought I would take the time this time to give this award to some blogs that I about have to be dead to not visit at least once a day...and they are in no particular order, well, maybe alphabetical order if I don't miss one on the first trip through my list.

1. Mrs. Hays at Bluff Area Daily Photo
2. The EG Tour Guide at East Gwillimbury WOW!
3. Mary at Faith, Fabric and Photos
4. Dot at Strolling Through Georgia and sometimes Alabama
5. Carletta at Round the Bend


Your EG Tour Guide said...

Hey, Rose, I hear you about loving to take photos of milkweed pods. I think they're gorgeous too.

Thank you for this award, Rose. You are soooo kind! I was just getting ready to post today's post when I saw your note in my mailbox so I'm scurrying back to my blog to acknowledge this Hot Blog Award. Hot, eh? Ha! Thanks, Rose!

Thank you Thank you Thank you! To receive these awards just adds to the fun of blogging! I'm glad my brother talked me into starting my own blog - I didn't see what the big deal was about until I started my own and now, like you, I really really enjoy it. And now I have 2 awards - from you and Katherine!
Again, thank you so much for recognizing my lil ol page!!!

I forgot to comment on your photo, too excited I guess! lol!
I love the over all color and lighting of this photo and with the hint of twigs in the darker background, the white really pops out.

I love that milkweed pod shot! Thank you for the award! That was very thoughtful of you! I have gotten where I don't pass them on, because some people don't seem to want them, or they already have them, and I never can decide on which 5 people to choose, when I really want to choose my whole list!

Congrats Rose! I know you enjoy blogging - I can 'hear' it when you write. :)
This milkweed is wonderful.I've seen other pics lately and wanted to myself but didn't think I could do it justice. You Have! Very nice.
And, thanks for bestowing this award on me - I am honored. This Hot award is the only thing warm here today. It's 25 with a windchill of 14! :)

Very nice shot, Rose!

The milkweed in sepia is most gorgeous. I love taking pictures of those overflowing, bursting seed pods also. The old mill takes so very well to sepia also.

Thank you for your visit to mine.

The milkweed is so pretty. I know there must be some around here but I can't see to find it.
