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
Asa is from Sweden, but currently lives in Cologne, Germany. When looking for beauty she says she invariably looks towards home. Seeing those pictures, it is no wonder why she misses these incredible landscapes sometimes.
Patricia lives near the capital Manila in the Phillipines, she sent three gorgeous images from the contryside to the west of Manila.
Trees on a lake. I am so there.
So much beauty all over the world!
Reblogged this on The healthiest beauty.
Ah! Stunning post!!! I love the snow, absolutely gorgeous! I live in cape town south africa and it is so bloody hot here!!! I love your blog 🙂 Thank you for bringing us this post, very inspiring 🙂 Check out my blog pls at http://www.tamikadoubell.com
South Africa must be gorgeous too (albeit hot! 🙂 )
Thanks for reading!
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.
Thank you, Ines! I find the photos so uplifting as well.
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!
The world has become so accessible through blogging, it’s truly amazing.
Thank you Tara (says Åsa).
Thank you, Tara! =)
Your pictures were stunning (but I will pass on the snow 😀 !!)
I’m happy to pass on the snow too, this winter has been much too long 😉
That adorable little hummingbird…however did you capture that in a photo?
I’m not sure what kind of bird it is, but credit for those photos goes to my brother. He’s much better at wielding the camera than me! 🙂
These photos and commentary are just beautiful. Thanks to all for sharing a bit of your world. 🙂
I’m glad you enjoy the photos as much as I do, ringthing!
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).
Sadly I only ever come as far as Ikea, when it comes to Sweden (which I love too! 🙂 ), I’d love to visit the real thing one day…
Birgit, thank you for sharing these photos and I’m so happy you wanted to use some of mine :-). I’m going back to Sweden on Sunday, just in time for the lilacs and the lily of the valley to flower. I hope one day you will have a chance to come.
Oh, good for you! Enjoy the trip and time at home!
Thank you Suzanne 🙂
Thank you, Suzanne! 🙂
Sweden looks surreally beautiful! (Is that a word?)
It is a word (and if not, let’s make it official) and it is true! 🙂
I think that’s a great word 🙂
The photos are lovely little escape from the day. 🙂
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.
That photo is amazing indeed, I’ve only seen hummingbirds in the zoo, they seem like fairies to me. 🙂
Hmm, I’ll have to ask my brother what kind of bird it is. But thank you, Miss Woolf! 🙂
I am loving these! (Not to mention seriously considering dragging out my camera…..)
Do it, do it!!! 🙂
