Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: SpRiNg

Spring is finally making an entrance here in CO. It is so wonderful that the birds are singing, trees are budding and flowers are erecting blooms. My neighbor is an avid gardner and has the most beautiful sanctuary in her backyard. So, I took a leisurely stroll through the garden gate and aimed my lens at all things “spring.” I simply adore this neighbor and her entire family and admire her love and knowledge of nature.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Stairs/Steps

After walking N and his friend’s to school this morning in the snow, I decided to warm up and share my cup of coffee with my WordPress Reader.  Several entries down, I discovered a photo challenge that seems like fun over on Cee’s Photography.  The feature this week is stairs or steps. While perusing my archive of memories, I found a few photos to share.

Stairs can lead us to some thing unknown and amazing like the blue stairs in the observatory that, at the top, rewarded us with beautiful mountains as far as the eye could see.  N especially loved the rock stairs on our hike on the Alum Cave Trail in the Smoky Mountains.  And wouldn’t you LoVe to have the “artistic” stairs some where in your home, preferably with a slide right next to them.  FUN!!
