A Turquoise Fog and Posts of the Week

We left for the cottage yesterday and should be back again in a few days. I have posts scheduled for my usual Thursdays and Sundays in the meantime. I'll be sure to catch up with you all after I'm back. Thanks always for your visit. Your kind comments mean so much to me.

Across the road from Frank's place, golden sunlight swept across the field to illuminate the ground fog in such a way that it appeared turquoise to me. My camera thought so too.

Below are the Posts of the Week.

The icon to the left here is yours for the taking if your blog post has been named as a Post of the Week - either as top post or as a runner up, today or in past weeks. I've decided to start mixing up the colours each week. Take whichever one appeals to you.

This week's top post goes to:

Nancy said...

Thanks for posting POTW!

Dave said...

I wonder if that mist was actually smoke which is sometimes that colour Hilary? - Dave

Tabor said...

How you find time to do the POTW is amazing. Must be the Zen of the cabin still hanging in the air when you return.

Beautiful photo, Hilary. The fog almost looks like water.

I admire the time you take to read so many blogs and the time you give to share the posts of the week. It's a big job.

Daryl said...

Wonderful picks .. and what an interesting fog ..

Zuzana said...

The picture is beautiful dear Hilary. It has an aura of the commencing change of seasons, there is that barely palpable difference, but it is there...
Congratulations to everyone, I am sure you picked some excellent places, you always do.:)

CiCi said...

I love that fog. We have fog here in The Enchanted Village, frequently, but never that colour. Pink sometimes but not turquoise. Beautiful.

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) said...

Thank you for awarding me POTW on sweet Angel's story. Can ya feel me blushin'??? She is a sweetheart and really needs prayer. I'm sad to say she has lost more weight and is not doin' well.

The response I've received from the blog world has just amazed me. I asked for prayer and Angel has received much, much more. Packages, cards filled with amazing well wishes and uplifin' notes have flooded in. What a blessing for this little doll. Fightin' cancer is no activity for an eleven year old gal.

God bless and have an amazing day! :o)

Grayquill said...

Sweet picture. Before clicking on your blog I read the title as "Torquoise Frog." I was looking and looking but found no frog but I did find a beautiful fog. :)

Beautiful photography. My son of 36 years old is taken some unique pictures this last year out on his dad's mining claim. Go to and see some of Arizona.
