Weekend Roundup - S

 This week's assignment: Starts with S, Favorite, and Silhouette. 

Starts with S: This garden SPIDER was busy SCOPING out a place to build its web. They look SCARY, but they're good SPIDERS.

Favorite: This is Hubby SADDLED up and ready to ride. 

Silhouette: This is a picture of Jube taken last SUMMER, before he was SOLD. The SUN is behind him, thus I decided this was close enough to being a SILHOUETTE. 

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Weekend Roundup- R

 This week's assignment: Starts with R, Favorite, and Roof.

Starts with R: RAIN starts with R. These poor horses are soaked. I'm not sure why they are standing in front of the house when their loafing shed is a mere 30 yards in front of them. Guess they wanted me to know they were miserable.

Favorite: This is Whiskey, who was sold last year. He was RUNNING down toward the feed truck.

Roof: I took this picture from my seat at Oaklawn Racetrack. Off in the distance is the Hot Springs Mountain Tower.

We rode up to the top of the tower. Below are the ROOFS of several buildings along the main street. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Weekend Roundup - Q

 This week's assignment: Starts with Q, Favorite, and Quarter.

Starts with Q: Northern Bobwhite QUAIL fits the bill. Mr. and Mrs. were walking down the road, so snapped a shot through the windshield.

Favorite: Guess what? Even though it wasn't an easy task, I found a way to put a horse in a Q post. :) Note the QUIRT laying across the jockey's lap. 

Quarter: The lovely margarita has a QUARTER missing. Hmm.      Wonder where it went?

Weekend Roundup - P

 This week's assignment: Starts with P, Favorite, and Paper.

Starts with PPretty in PINK. On one of our backroad rambles, I found this beauty in an overgrown fence row. I don't know what kind of tree it is, but it sure was beautiful all decked out in blooms.

Favorite: Meet PATRON. He is not only a handsome fella, but a real sweetheart.

Paper: This is one of the many books I have read over my lifetime. It's pages are made of PAPER! The bookmark is a souvenir Granddaughter brought me from Europe. And, lucky me, it also has PINK roses. :)

Springtime in Oklahoma

One of my favorite things to do on a beautiful spring day, is to take a drive down the backroads. On this particular day, I was on the lookout for blooms. I don't know what kind of trees/bushes/flowers these are, but I found each of them worthy of a picture. 

Daffodils blowing in the wind.

I do know this is Wisteria.  

We stopped on a bridge to take in the beauty of new leaves and this colorful stream with the sky and trees reflected in the water. We enjoyed the quiet, broken only by an occasional bird.

Hope everyone has a wonderful week ahead!
