In Search Of Hidden Beauty – International Edition II

I received so many lovely photos from all over the world, thank you so much for sending them. Here are a few more from upstate New York, from Sweden and from the Philippines. Enjoy!


“My love of reading began over forty years ago when my father brought home “Hooked on Phonics” and taught me to read at the age of three. As an only child books were my constant companion. One of my favorite libraries is one I frequent on my way home from work for weekly pick ups of books for myself and my children. The library sits on top of a very large hill with spectacular views. In the summer we visit it often, with Brittany, Colin, Courtney and I sitting outside in the large gazebo escaping into our own secret worlds courtesy of our favorite authors.” By Brie, New York, USA

    These are really great! 🙂 I’m very happy you have this new category of posts – seeing these pics from all over the world really brightens one’s day.

  6. Tara says:

    I agree with Ines, looking at these pics is a really nice way to start the day and reminds me how wonderfully global our community is.

    They are all great, but the misty lake with the tall pines by Asa and the one with bird from Patricia are particularly stunning. Brie’s reminiscence was lovely too. Thank-you everyone!

    These photos and commentary are just beautiful. Thanks to all for sharing a bit of your world. 🙂

  10. Thank you for the lovely photos. I don’t know yet how to send pictures via the computer. It’s a skill that most people already have, so I’ll try to learn so I can send you some pictures from South Carolina. You have enriched my life with your wonderful blog and I send thanks and gratitude.

      Thank you very much, Anita! I would love to see photos of SC, I loved Savannah when I was there. Such a beautiful city, but the humidity almost killed me! 😉

    Oh gosh, that darling little bird!!!!

    All of the photos were beautiful .. and having visited Sweden, I can vouch for what a gorgeous country it is. Thanks, Birgit (and Brie, Asa and Patricia).

  12. Sweden looks surreally beautiful! (Is that a word?)

    Wonderful selection of photos from around the world! The hummingbird is amazing. I’ve never seen one but they seem to me to be almost magical.
