Catching Up

I hope this finds you doing well, and I hope you have been having a good summer, wherever you are. 

Without meaning to, I have been absent for quite a while, and I sincerely appreciate the notes I received from some of you “just checking on me.”  It’s nice to know I was been missed.

I think I have been suffering from a combination of writer’s block and “summer doldrums,” most likely due to the extremely hot summer we’re having here in Mississippi.  I can’t get inspired to go out and take pictures “off the beaten path,” or anywhere else for that matter, unless I can take them from the window of my air-conditioned car.

I'm looking forward to this Fall and cooler weather and new “off the beaten path” adventures in search of new and interesting pictures to capture with my cameras.  In the meantime, here are a few I captured here in Vicksburg, during my absence from Southern Lagniappe.

Beautiful! The colors in your photos are amazing. Hope you are doing well too. Sometimes summer is a great time to just relax and take a break.

Beautiful pictures! Summer is a time to take a vacation from many things, isn't it!

Yes, it surely has been hot here in the Deep South and probably more so there in Mississippi.

The beautiful photos seen on your post today were certainly worth waiting for and very inspiring. You live in a beautiful area.

Will be looking forward to your next photo outing.

Happy last little bit of Summer.

I'm so glad to see you! I woke thinking of you this morning, and what a lovely surprise today.

I especially love the close-up---as I scrolled down, it was like happening in on a dozy sentinel, grumpy with sleep, and wanting you to Just Go Away. The Ionic ears and the comical expression made me smile.

So good to see you! You've been WAY missed.

love and,

Lovely photos. I cannot wait to see more. I am glad you are back. I am not in a position to get out and see much these days, but I fondly remember trips down the Natchez Trace to Vicksburg and Natchez. Now I can go with you on your blog-

Hi, my friend!

I have been MIA for a long time, too, and must be great minds working along the same path that we would both reappear within hours of each other. :-)

These photos are just gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous.

I have some news I want to share with you, but I need to tell you in private. It's good. Let me assure you.

I am going to join some tablescaping folks today, but I have a post which is going to go up in a few weeks (days) that I think you will particularly enjoy.

Love to you, my friend, and all the best as always.


Sheila :-)
