Aim High



“In the long run, men hit only what they aim at. Therefore, aim at something high.” Henry David Thoreau

Sky Watch Friday is a group of bloggers aiming cameras at the sky because there is all kinds of good things going on up there and all the more fun when shared.







Happy Valentines Day to friends and family.

Mandy I do like photos with grasses waving and showing their beautiful seedheads with a background of a blue sky.For me pictures like that reflect happy summer days. ( This tall grass is called Pidgeon grass.)
