Forward - From the Heartland of Carolina

This is a continuing story of the journey Forward shared by 2 people, Lynne and Tom. Both love to LIVE life to it's fullest, which currently means spending lots of time outdoors, working on various projects from gardens to patios, flowers to vegetables, sunrises and sunsets, birds and woodland critters, and spending time with family. Don't forget to check the monthly archives, and please feel free to leave us a comment so we know you stopped by.

Welcome to the Family, Elex

As Lynne mentioned, Dawn and Elex were married in a very simple ceremony in August. Here's a few pictures from that special day.

Lynne and Dawn

Tom and Dawn


Elex and Dawn, with Andrew, John and Brad. Aren't the boys getting big?!


One of the things we do sometimes is leave old flowers on the plants for the birds to enjoy. Here's a couple pictures of some goldfinches eating the seeds from some spent Zinnia flowers under the kitchen window.

John and Andrew still love to explore the pond, usually in search of tadpoles.

Ruth came over one day in late August with a 'find' she had picked up at a thrift shop. It's an old wood sash window, that at one time had been painted and used as a picture frame. Of course, Lynne loved it, and it now hangs between the family room and dining room.

And as I head off in search of more pictures (actually, I have to copy them off Lynne's computer and crop/resize them) we'll leave you with Simba this time, who still manages to find the strangest, smallest, most unlikely places to sneak a nap.
