Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I've been lurking over at a wonderful photo blog by Ashley Sisk for a couple of months now and have wanted to join in her Scavenger Hunt Sunday challenge and finally decided this week it was time to just do it! There are many wonderful photo entries each week so if you have some time check out Ashley and her readers.
Now for this week's challenge:

MEMORIES
I had different ideas for this one; but finally chose to use some of my dried roses. My husband has always brought home flowers. Sometimes a bouquet, sometimes a single rose. Having been dried they are very delicate as you can see by the stray petals; but they do give me sweet memories.

SILHOUETTE
I took this yesterday evening as the sun was beginning to set. There were faint tinges of blue and pink in the evening sky.

DOORWAYS

This is my granddaughter Lucy playing with the little house she got for Christmas. Wouldn't it be nice to enter the many doorways of childhood once more? I guess in some ways I do when I'm with the grandbabies.

REFLECTION
I had to go into my archives for this reflection. I picked the last blanket flower in my garden last fall and brought it in and placed it on a mirror lying on the table. It was a quick shot and not well placed on the mirror but I like it.

SILVER
My lovely daughter gave me this ring for Christmas. It is sterling silver and has my February birthstone.

For more Scavenger Hunt Sunday join Ashley here.

Carletta, I don't know where to begin...I know I will forget something. I do love the ring...it would be fine without the stone even for me.

I have to ask, does Lucy just love anything with a door? We always look for stuff with doors for Lorelei cause she loves them so...doors and any little figure she can hold in her hand...and dolls.

I love the color behind the tree...just so subtle you hardly notice it....

And I love your dried flowers.

Carletta, you've put together a wonderful selection of photos here. I love the flower on the glass, wouldn't have realised it was a reflection if I hadn't read it.
And I didn't know you could dry whole flowers, I've only ever done single petals. What a lovely way to preserve the memories!

Love all of your pics here- especially the memories-the dried roses. I do this with my roses too.

This sounds like a fun meme which I might join sometime soon-but not this week!
