So which one is your favorite ?


  1. Oh I LOVE them all! But the heart shaped tendrils (have a heart) and the giraffe inched the others out for me. We once knew a horse with a heart patch on his side…his name was gallant heart!

  2. Wow…makes me want to go outside and look for hearts! I like the heart of nature and the heart of the matter best, but really they are all wonders!

  3. I’m not a fan of Valentine’s Day, never have been, to my husband & I this is when baseball season is just about to start. YAY!!
    But I have to say, I love the green hearts. I love the way the green just pops off that old barn red color.

  4. A very difficult decision ~ they’re all wonderful! I think the giraffe speaks to me ~ such an incredibly beautiful animal with a definite heart marking.

    Thanks so much for sharing!

  5. So clever and so pretty! I love the ones of the various leaves, but something about that little heart-to-heart the swans are having is so sweet.
    Happy V Day!

  6. I think your pictures really made my day:-) Thank You!

    And as for choosing a favourite… Have a heart! Lovely and subtle.

    Have a nice day,

  7. “In the heart of the Morning”….meeting God in that special place ,before the noise of the day imposes on us.Thank you for sharing and have a beautiful day Katie :-)

  8. Your hearts found in nature are all beautiful. I like the second photo “inside your heart” showing the hollowed out tree trunk. Happy Valentine’s Day. I did a similar post yesterday. ~ Rosemary

  9. Wow these are all amazing, but I would love to be sitting in the feild where “In the heart of the morning” was taken. I wish I was there right now!!! It seems so peaceful and there is NO SNOW!!! Happy Valentine’s Day.

  10. They are all lovely – I especially like the giraffe and the swans. Thanks for sharing these beautiful pictures, hope you had a Happy Valentine’s Day.


  11. Naturally I like the Giraffe best. =) However, they are all very lovely! Great story CG!
