Beautiful.

Slow is where we can find things, lovely things, we'd otherwise miss.

Anet said...

OH... thank you! you just lowered my blood pressure:) Lovely time with your cute puppies.

Gwen Buchanan said...

... the dogs just loved being in a different place for a while and were really well behaved... I never even had to use the leashes ... after they smelled everything they just sat beside me and then laid their heads down...

it was the kind of atmosphere that made me lose track of time... no wind... just stillness, beauty and gliding birds

It almost felt as if I was intruding...

Terri said...

beautiful images, Gwen. They could have each been a meditation....thanks....

Don said...

No, you weren't intruding, you were documenting. I feel like Anet, lowered bp and lowered expectations for busyness. Great

Ruth said...

Perrrfffect.

Gwen Buchanan said...

Terri you are such an inspiration... hope your new wordpress blog is sliding together just the way you want.. Big job!
The tips for a great bonfire on your site are well worth reading! Fun!

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thanks Don...It looked like the chicks were right at home in their new quarters...
And Ruth your photos brought out the beauty of his work.. A job well done to both of you.

Oh, I cannot tell you how envious I am, Gwen! Your pups are beautiful, so happy the weather is cooperating, & I know you must be, too! Have a great day!

Gwen Buchanan said...

Thanks kathy and gina,
I am so happy that warmer days are here... and the colored stones always amaze me.. every color you can imagine...

Oh what perfect evening ! I'm going through agonies here as we try and secure another rescue lurcher (I've set my heart on her). Turns out she may not be cat friendly :( and I'm so sad about it. Your evening walk is my idea of heaven...and your hounds....so lovely.

Gwen Buchanan said...

thanks Asti... I would love to bring 3 more little hounds home, too, if I found some! they are always there for you... Hope you find another too..

I lived in NS for 8 years as a kid. I loved the bay. NS gave me a life-long love of the ocean, that unfortunately, I can rarely feed. Montreal isn't big on ocean

Gwen Buchanan said...

My husband John,grew up in Montreal and although he loves the ocean...he has never lost his love of big cities
