Sepia Scenes and Yard Art

A few readers may recognize The Incredible Mr. Limpet who appeared in my Weekend Reflection shot a few weeks ago (here). I took these two shots the same day as the reflection one. We inherited Mr. Limpet when we moved to this new home almost three years ago. He sits and guards the larger of two fish ponds in our yard.
Some of you know I am dealing with a knee injury and still haven't been able to venture far from my own yard so I've had to resort to what's at hand. However, after a shot in my knee today (YES, very painful) I hope to be on the mend much faster as soon as the headache and nausea from the shot goes away. :)

For more Sepia Scenes join Mary here and for more Yard Art join Mary here. She'll be so glad you came by.

You need to get better soon. The fish is wonderful yard art, he can protect the ponds with his mssibe bronze style. Sepia adds a stylish glow to anything in the yard...

I *do* remember the Incredible Mr. Limpet from that post! He looks pretty darn good in sepia! Very nicely done! Hope your knee gets better soon too, knee injuries are really a pain.

Get all better soon!

Ooo the shot sounds painful but I'm when it helps you it will be so worth it. Please take care of yourself my friend. Do what the doctor says ya hear? LOL I remember Mr. Limpet Love him. I don't know if you remember my reflection shot I showed from my brother and sister-in-laws house in Seattle back in January. They have something very similar to him :)

Ouch, Carletta, that knee sounds painful. Hope you're feeling better by the time you read this.
I'm not complaining about you resorting to what's to hand.. I like these shots of Mr. Limpet very much!

Mr Limpet is pretty darn cute! I wish the things that I'd inherited over the years were that charming.

I missed that your had knee troubles. Please get better soon. Our cross-street neighbor just had a shot in her knee -- she said how painful it was. But she and Dr think it will work. Hope yours does too. Get better!!!

ewww the old knee shot trick, that does hurt something fierce.

I love Mr. Limpet. Looks like a great guard fish.

I'm going to go ice my plantar faciitis in sympathy for your knee.

Hi Carletta, Hope your knee feels better soon. That is NO fun this time of year ---when I'm sure you are anxious to get outside more. BUT--take care of yourself..

Mr. Limpet is a cutie... Looks like he is singing!!

Thanks for sharing.
Hugs,
Betsy

Tom said...

Mr Limpet is awesome...
I am so sorry to hear that you are in pain.. I do hope it mends as soon as possible and you are springing around like a lambkin soon.. ;o)

Patti said...

Hi -
I'm back! this time for yard art. I had forgotten that you had multi-tasked the memes. ;-)

Have a nice Thursday, Carletta. I hope you are feeling better.

Mr. Limpet is great Carletta. I'm sorry to hear you are in pain. Hope all heals up quick and the effects of medication and treatments are minimal. Praying for you right now for speedy healing...

Gattina said...

The fish is cute, but poor you ! hope it's getting better now after the shot !

Greyscale Territory said...

Mr Limpet is adorable! You could almost mistake him for a merman singing on a rock to woo his mermaid!
Sorry to hear about your knee! Hope the warming weather helps the healing process!

Oh Carletta, I hope your knee gets better quickly! Love your yard art pic and the Sepia Scenes edit! :)

Carletta, I sure had not realized you had that serious of a knee injury...I am not sure what I thought had happened but figured when you mentioned it that you would be over it in a few days, but if I had thought the term injury does sound more serious. I sure hope you recover soon and don't have to take too many shots. They sound painful.

BTW, I like Mr. Limpet.

Rita said...

Love your fish and the name is perfect.

Wishing you a speedy recovery. I have to get cortisone shots in my knee and they can be very painful. Hope you do not need to get many more.

SquirrelQueen said...

Mr. Limpet is so cute and he looks great in sepia. I am so sorry to hear your knee is still bothering you. Hopefully the shot will speed your recovery and no more of them will be necessary.

msdewberry said...

I hope your knee is getting better after that shot. Just threatening me with a needle would speed the healing process up!!
Mr. Limpet is a handsome fish! Not at all camera shy!!
Thanks for visiting my blog and for your comments!! Hope you keep coming back!!

George said...

Mr. Limpet looks wonderful in sepia. I hope your knee is soon much better.

Leora said...

Hope you are feeling better by now. He's a cutie, in sepia, in color, in limited color - he begs to be in a photograph.

Raven said...

Lovely shot. Didn't know about your injury. Send me an email and I'll send some reiki your way if you'd like.
