Weekly Photo Challenge: Treasure

16/02/2014

“Guard well within yourself that treasure, kindness. Know how to give without hesitation, how to lose without regret, how to acquire without meanness.” George Sand

This week’s photo challenge calls for a treasure or treasures we cherish. The obvious comes to mind and I’ll acknowledge that above all, our relationships carry more currency than any objects. However, we all do cherish other additional things and experiences. We have birds that winter in our garden and yard… I have feeders for them and they give me joy with the songs and playfulness. I will add more later. This is what I want to share here.

“Treasure your relationships, not your possessions.” Anthony J. D’Angelo

Thank you EVERYONE!

This post was inspired by a prompt from Weekly Photo Challenge: TREASURE  For this challenge, snap a selfie with your camera-phone or camera.  Feel free to get creative and clever, and if you don’t want to share a photo of yourself, think of a way to approach this challenge in a different way. (Hint: silhouettes and shadows are your friends.)

    Time is something I treasure since I retired. Walking without rushing. Planning over a cup of tea. And those occasional days when there’s no reason to look at the clock at all.

    Oh you’ve got a dove!! We have a feeder we hang from the porch rafter so the squirrels cannot get into it. I’m amazed at how many birds stay…and it’s been a harsh winter!

    Oh…how pretty. The birds are so pretty. You just reminded me that I haven’t seen a cardinal in a long while. Come to think of it…the birds and the squirrels seem scarce lately. Must be all of the snow.
