A Place I Often Go To

There is an area in my town that is so interesting every time I visit.  It is near the train tracks, so you can see the train coming through from time to time.  Some of the many attractions in this area are the rose garden, the wine tasting house, an orchard grown by the city, the charming cottages along the street, and the small church which still stands for 134 years!  Here, you will find friendly faces and welcoming smiles.  It is the place I go to where I can think, pray, rest, listen.......and hear.


















Can you see why I come here often?

I can see why you like to go there, and I'd so love to go with you. The flowers are lovely, and the church perfect. I'm happy to be back on your blogroll, my friend. I hope this template works. I think the culprit was the featured images on the header, so fingers crossed.
Happy day to you.
OH! And would you believe the cup has tea? Orange with a little cream.

Sheri, I needed those sunny photos today. Thank you for the beautiful pictures of flowers. Wow, that would be a charming place to have a quiet coffee. Or just to sit and relax. I love trains too honey. I love church bells, don't you? Blessings, love, xoxo, Susie

Oh what a beautiful little city. Where do you live? I am thinking of re-locating up North. My son lives in Los Gatos, so someplace close to him.

Your photo's are stunning, thanks so much for sharing.

I'd like to be there right now - just sitting and taking in the warm sunshine.

Trains are always an attraction - both the real ones and the ones displayed at the railways museums. They mean - adventure, excitement, and sometimes also..danger.
The gorgeous roses are probably the main reason for your coming to this enchanted place. I can totally understand you.

I can see why you go there ...
It's so nice to have places like this.

The roses look lovely.

I hope these last few days of March are good for you Sheri.
Good wishes for April ...

All the best Jan

What a charming and picturesque place.

Sheri, I am going to tell you something, and I'm going to be very honest.

YOU have a gift. You have a story to tell. Your children are grown, and now is YOUR time. I don't now how you'll feel about this, but here goes:

You need to think about telling your story. You are possess a sensitivity to life that you often capture in your sparse but powerful words. Your photography is also very indicative that you have an eye. Now, I've been told this over the years, and I've been developing both my writing and my photography, and my goals are clear:I want to share my ideas to a wider audience. I don't know how you feel about that, but I believe this is something you must do.

Every photo you take has a focus that shows you have an innate quality to single out a moment. Not everyone has that raw talent. You also have the ability to take large concepts and boil them down to simple but profound snippets of writing. The latter is not easy, but you do it.

Please, please consider taking on the fun but yes, DIFFICULT task of developing your writing and photography into a format for a wider audience. You have a story to tell.

Much love.

Oh yes, I CAN see why you go there often! It's a beautiful spot. And those roses -- wow! Of course, you know and love roses, so that had to be an incentive! Lovely buildings. I can imagine many lovely walks there!

Susan said...

Sounds like a lovely, serene place, Sheri. I would especially love the rose garden. How magnificent! Susan

Such a pretty place, Sheri - love the beautiful flowers and roses and that gorgeous old church. I have a thing for old trucks. My Dad always had a vintage truck he used for hauling things and they all had names, too. Love the tire swing. It's been years since I've enjoyed one. There's nothing more plaintive than the sound of a train whistle. Sending hugs xo Karen
