Saturday Snapshot~October 18

It has been Quite Some Time since I’ve participated in Saturday Snapshot.  Lots of things have been going on in my life.  The most time-consuming one and the reason I haven’t been seen or heard from is explained in this post.  Surgery and recuperation with ongoing physical therapy have kept me busy.

But I’m back and I can’t believe that this is my third post for the week, so I guess I’m getting back on track with this whole blogging thing.

That being said, I’m linking up today for Saturday Snapshot with all the fun and talented people who meet up at West Metro Mommy Reads.


During my recuperation, I was lucky to have the opportunity to stay at my best friend’s house which is all on one floor. It was easier to get around and it has a step-in shower.   It has been a wonderful gift to be able to recover here.  That comfort and convenience has been invaluable in my recovery.

When I started to be up and around again, I took a walk outside to the front yard.  This is what I found.

Front yard daisies

I was so happy to see the bee hard at work on the daisy.  When I was growing up, daisies were always my favorite flower.  My only attempt at art is drawing a single daisy, so they hold a special place in my heart.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of the great photos.  My first time back and I realize how much I’ve missed being part of Saturday Snapshot. Be sure to make your way over to West Metro Mommy Reads to see what everyone is sharing.

Happy Saturday!

  1. Daisys are not a complex flower compared to some but they always look amazing. I love the shot with the bee on it.

  2. Great pic. I love how you managed to catch the bee in it too. I’m surprised he didn’t fly away.

  3. Fran, So glad you are recuperating quickly. I love seeing the bees on flowers too, especially the few remaining flowers here now that the weather is turning cold. Here’s Mine

  4. Glad you’re back – I’ve missed you!! And if I haven’t said it before I really admire that you did both sides at once (my other hip is suddenly giving me a fair amount of trouble; seeing the orthopedist on the 28th; may be your turn to re-encourage me) 🙂

  5. wonderful time of year

  6. Beautiful flowers. Sure is a nice environment to recover. All the best. 😉

  7. Welcome back to Saturday Snapshots! I’m glad to hear your recovery from surgery is going well, and I’m looking forward to more of your photos every Saturday. LOVE today’s shot.
    My Saturday Snapshots are from the Cinque Terre, Italy.

  8. I’m kind of partial to daisies too. Our youngest granddaughter is named Shasta. Actually her dad named her for Mt Shasta in California, but when teased at school, “Shasta, like the pop?” she always replied “No, Shasta, like the daisy!”. They are such a happy flower, as is our granddaughter! 🙂

  9. I’m glad to hear you are recovering. Nice daisies.

  10. Glad you’re getting up and about. Such pretty flowers are a great reason to step outside.

  11. Daisies are one of my favourite flowers too. Lovely shot with the bee.

  12. I love that photo! And nice work on your recuperation! Plus getting back into blogging after a little rest is always good for mind, body and soul 🙂

  13. That’s so beautiful that you were able to capture the moment with the bee 🙂 Daisies used to be my favorite flower. Then I saw tulips and I was blown away. But really, who can discriminate with flowers?
