In February 2006, I had retired after working for 35 years in the telecommunications industry. I had a little more time for creative activities and I decided to start a blog. The first picture I ever posted was of a Saucer Magnolia, or Tulip Magnolia as some folks call it, taken at my back door, much like the picture above. Then, I mostly journaled the passing of my days here on Cypress Knee Swamp. It was a way of keeping in touch with my family living in Mississippi and other parts of Louisiana.

I don't journal as much these days, just posting quick thoughts and pictures that I love to take of my part of the world. I am glad I started the blogging journey, even though I am not as committed as most. I have learned much from fellow bloggers and always enjoy the beautiful pictures, thoughts and activities from new found friends.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

My tulip trees are in bloom, they are always eagerly anticipated and enjoyed, because they sure don't last long! Love all of your header photos!
