Church signs....

I love to ride through the country on the back roads. I love the old towns and the new little places on the outskirts. I am always fascinated by the inspirational saying you sometimes find on the signs for these old churches.

One that I have never really forgotten is one that I saw somewhere in the mountains on a road I can't remember going on a trip just for the fun of it. You know the c'mon let's go for a ride kind of trip.

This particular sign caught my attention for two reasons.

1. Being a photographer the saying immediately caught my attention.

2. It is so true.

What was on the sign you ask?

"Worry is a dark room where negatives develop."

There is nothing positive about worrying, it can accomplish nothing, and everything happens for the best anyway.

When it comes to worry, don't waste your time.

Somehow anytime I start to worry now about anything, I just remember that sign.

Welcome to my world

Welcome to my world. I live in Pawley's Island, SC a tiny little barrier island known as the oldest seaside resort in America. I'll try to keep it full of fun things. I am usually always in the garden which has been a work in progress for about 18 years. One of these days I will quit re-designing the whole thing and actually let it grow. I love to grow anything I can find and I am always experimenting with different propagation methods, ways to germinate seeds and feed plants. If there is a new plant, I've gotta have one and if I can grow it from seed, that is just icing on the cake. I have recently accepted thatPlants are like POKEMON! Ya gotta have them all! ( and I am getting close) .
If I am not in the garden, my aviary is my other "happy place" I raise Quaker parrots, Cockatiels and Budgies. There are about 50 or so birds in the aviary and most of them talk and all of them provide lots of entertainment.
I love to make jewelry with wire and beads. My husband makes copper sculpted flowers which we will be selling in my etsy shop. I also love to travel and photograph everything, especially flowers and landscapes. You never know what you might find here, so stop by often and be sure to say Hi.
