Beloved Pony

I saw that the Weekly Photo Challenge this week is ‘beloved’ and I had to choose my daughter’s favourite pony at our local riding school. We can’t afford a pony of our own, but she loves this pony (Squirrel) and rides him regularly. ❤ Here they are after today’s riding lesson: And here they areContinue reading “Beloved Pony”

Season’s Blessings

Symbols of my Life

I was considering the Weekly Photo Challenge of ‘Symbol’ and wondering how this could be applied in my macro world.

This wasContinue reading “Symbols of my Life”
