Hearts Revisited For Valentines Day ...


I found this fossilized clam shell at the beach some years ago. I discovered the heart in 2009 as I was working in my rock garden.


We heat our home with a fireplace only.
One day in March, 2009, I was putting more wood on the fire when I noticed the tiny hearts.


I was walking with my sister Beth last July when I spotted this beautiful white morning glory flower. Imagine our delight when we both spotted the heart in the center!


There haven't been little kids living here for a long time - but they left their mark.
I found this Barbie head near the woods a couple of years ago ...
And realized it was one of my favorite hearts. Ever.


In March of 2009 I found mark on a piece of metal in one of the mechanical rooms at the then-abandoned mega church across the street.

In my imagination it looked like arms and hands - holding out a heart.

Happy Valentine's Day, everyone!

Even though Valentine's day is limited to one day a year, you found a way to celebrate it every week! So an extra happy hearts day, Clytie!
BTW love the fossilized clam shell:)

Fun heart sightings. Hope you're having a nice day (aside from the wind and pouring rain). ;-)

Thank you for the compliment on my photo.

No, my camera doesn't have a setting for that type of colorization. I did the work in PS. :-)

Wishing you love strong as stone,
wishing you days full of fire strength
wishing you and your family days full of subtle flower delicacy,
wishing you momemnts full of softness,
wishing you life full of hugs and hearts.

Love,
Dani

I really enjoyed revisiting your hearts and hearing the stories behind them. I think you should do this now and then--a kind of Heart Review!

Love you, Sissy!
