Picking Flowers

Today’s Foto Fix is from April, 2014, when I took my mom to see the Flower Fields in Carlsbad, California. We had a wonderful time, surrounded by endless rows of color, scents of springtime in the air. ~SueBee

Country Road in Kansas

I spent the past week visiting my son and son-in-law in Kansas, my first time seeing them since they moved there a year ago, and my first time in Kansas. Being fully vaccinated now, I was finally able to get on an airplane. We had a really nice time together; it felt so normal! I […]

Icarus

I took this picture with my iPhone a few days ago at Aliso Beach (yes, included in my parking pass) in south Orange County, California. It was quite a sight! ~SueBee

Snow in the Desert

Today I have guest pictures from my friend of many decades, Aranka, who lives in Pahrump, Nevada. The first picture was taken out her breakfast room window, the other two as she and her husband, George, drove to Las Vegas. The pictures are beautiful, but also quite a stand-out when you factor in where they […]

Washing Away 2020

I made my annual journey to Newport Beach Peninsula this morning to write digits in the sand, and yes, to get wet, as a wave reminded me who’s boss of the beach. I found that completely appropriate, and it made me laugh! My new grandson was the bright spot of 2020; the rest of it […]

Happy New Year!

It’s not midnight yet here in Southern California, but I wanted to share a greeting that I believe most of us are glad to shout from the rooftops! Good riddance to 2020 and let’s welcome in a bright, happy, healthy, wonderful 2021!! I took this picture a few years ago at the Riviera Hotel in […]

Wind Farm and Palm Trees

Driving from Los Angeles and approaching the exit for Palm Springs, you’re surrounded on both sides of the freeway by huge wind turbines. The freeway sits in a valley between two large mountain ranges, and is quite the natural wind tunnel. I took this picture a few years back while driving around the Palm Springs […]

Morning Coffee

Good morning! I took this picture a few years back while on a Palm Springs vacation. Since I’m not out and about much these days of Covid, I’m going to share random pictures taken during earlier days of freedom. The cup of coffee starts things off! ~SueBee

Modern Art Christmas Tree

Airplane smoke trails shaped into what I thought looked like a modern art Christmas Tree. This beautiful view was looking from Laguna Beach out over the Pacific Ocean. ~SueBee

Wave, Blue

Today’s Foto Fix is an example of my favorite color. It’s also a color that appears to be taking the lead in America’s elections and for that I’m extremely grateful.  I took this picture at Laguna Beach. I love the vertical lines of light in the waves. ~SueBee

Fire Retardant at Oak Glen

Today’s Foto Fix shows how well the pink fire retardant dropped by fire fighting airplanes works. This picture was taken at Oak Glen, a beautiful area impacted by both the Apple Fire and the El Dorado Fire in recent months. ~SueBee

Santa Barbara Coastline

Today’s Foto Fix is one I took this past Tuesday while on a day trip to Santa Barbara, a gorgeous coastline city about two hours north of me. More pictures will be coming soon. ~SueBee

Mickey Mouse Cactus

Today’s Foto Fix features a cactus I saw on a recent visit to a local Arboretum. I found the resemblance to the famous mouse to be quite fun! He seemed to be waving hello to me. ~SueBee

First Harvest

Experienced vegetable gardeners may laugh at this, but I’m so proud harvesting my first zucchini and zucchini flowers this morning that I’m posting about it to celebrate! My oldest daughter, Angelika, gave me a few seeds that I planted May 20 in a small planter area in my back yard, and now I have fresh […]

Morning Walk

Good morning, my fellow Covid19 Lock-downers, Stay-at-Homers, Quarantiners! I couldn’t pass up taking pictures of the perfectly shaped teddy bear bush and beautiful flower-filled wagon on my morning walk. I hope you all enjoy your day and stay safe. ~SueBee

Time Has Slowed To A Crawl

We used to complain about time rushing on by, hours that felt like minutes, blink and another year had passed. Well, it doesn’t seem that’s a complaint anymore… for me anyway. I do love that about the Safer At Home orders during the Covid19 pandemic. While I spent last week making face masks for family […]

Hope, in spite of

With all that’s going on in the world, I felt these pictures, taken awhile back while visiting Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge, would be appropriate.  I did a bit of editing while sitting on Hope Rock, adding “in spite of” with bits of twigs. Take care, stay healthy. ~SueBee
