Outdoor Wednesday/ Cotton, Eagles and fruit!

It's time for another Outdoor Wednesday hosted by the lovely Susan at http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/ if you haven't seen her blog yet head on over and you will be in for a treat! I love to post pictures that show some contrast to each other. This first pic was taken while we were visiting Arizona. I believe we were somewhere near Tuscon and the cotton field in the desert really caught our eye. ( click on any pic to enlarge)


By contrast, this next pic was taken in Northern Wisconsin last summer near a little town called Spooner. The majesty of the bald eagle sitting alone in the tree, seems to suggest he's taking in this great land of ours.


My last pic was taken near Traverse City, Michigan. It was the week of their annual Cherry Festival and their Cherry Trees ( which they are famous for) were in full bloom. Cherries are my favorite fruit and I was in hog cherry heaven! Cherries everywhere to see and to eat and to buy ( cute cherry decor etc.) What a treat! Thanks for stopping, Cindy

  2. Hi Cynthia
    First I must tell you that I love your wedding photo & showing us your mom and dad's.
    Second I also LOVE cherries. I love the big BIng Cherries and the yellow ones (forgot their names...it's late lol)
    Third when you posted your comment I'm wondering why i can't link to your site by your name like most. It's happened a few times now.
    Just wondering.
    Happy Outdoor Wed.
    Love Claudie

  11. How creative of you to post such contrasts. I love the cotton field with the mountain in the distance. The eagle must have been amazing to see in person. I think I've only seen them in zoos. And a cherry tree is a sweet treat!

    All the best, Lana

  12. Great choices for O W. The cotton and the cheeries especially! How very different in color, texture, and how about taste? No don't taste the cotton, lol.

  15. Cindy, these pictures are great! I never think about taking pictures of cotton fields, because they are so common around here, but I bet there are a lot of people who've never seen cotton growing. laurie

  17. We got a lot of rain today. The clouds were black. I think I heard something about snow. I hope not. The flu has hit our area.

  19. GREAT pictures. I am envious of your seeing the bald eagle. There is a rumor that one lives in our area, but I don't believe it! Thanks!
