Windows of Possibility

I took this picture from the inside of an old barn we like to visit...the image made me think about all the possibilities.

Life is full of possibilities.  Something about looking out this window made me a more aware of all the possibilities than I usually think about.  Some of those thoughts included...

The possibility that this lone new squash I found in the garden this morning may actually make it to full maturity (if mother nature cooperates)...

The possibility that this hydrangea will be the last bloom of the season.  The possibility that if mother nature cooperates, I could have a really beautiful dried hydrangea bloom to enjoy throughout the winter (if you allow hydrangea blooms to begin to dry on the stem, and then cut and allow the drying process to continue, they preserve extremely well as dried flowers).

The possibility that this 4 foot tall stem of wildflowers I planted long ago may actually bloom (if mother nature cooperates).  Even if it doesn't bloom, I am pleased with the fact, a totally different concept than possibility, that the wildflower seeds I planted actually turned into something possible!

The possibility that I might begin to raise chickens...this rooster was at the same barn as the window and I found myself captured by his handsome, charming and somewhat protective demeanor (of his lady friends) and once again inspired with the possibility of raising chickens.  This has nothing to do with mother nature cooperating!

Does looking through the window cause you to think about possibilities?  For some of my family and friends, hurricane Sandy sure is causing thought about the possibilities...let's hope mother nature cooperates and brings no harm to the eastern coastline and thereabouts...

Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
