Top Commenter Love for September

I'm not a big fan of hearts on everything. But, I sure couldn't resist this amazing picture. At first I was just attracted to the crisp shadows on the tree trunk, and didn't even see the heart until later. It's so perfect, it looks like I faked it.

But it's a great image to show how much I appreciate all of you who take the time to interact with me on a regular basis. A free link could be yours... just tell me what you think, often!

Here are the top commenters for September, that Ann kept saying she was busy, or taking a break, but look what she did!

It is going to be a very busy life looking forward. Hopefully I shall not fall out from the Top Ten.

I love the heart, it is so transparent.

Secondary Roads said...

Nice pic and interesting that you only noticed the heart later. Thanks for the link. This blog is one of my first stops of the day.

Emma Springfield said...

What a unique picture. How fortunate for you to find it.

Ann said...

NO WAY!!! I can't believe I actually did that many comments...lol
What a cool picture that is, it does look like you set it up that way

Unknown said...

What a great shot! It is so cool to find little gems like that in nature!

betchai said...

yehey, I am glad I am still in the top 10 despite life had been very busy now for me. oh, love those heart shape shadows, glad you saw them.

Hi Mona- I love the shadows, I almost wish the heart wasn't there, because now it's all I can see when I look at it.

Jean- that's one of the nicest things anyone can say to me- If I've inspired you to take even one extra walk then I am a very happy person!

rainfield- I think you'll be here. We speak the same languages, you usually whisper and I sometimes shout, but we understand.

Chuck- mutually true, my friend... one of these days we'll manage to translate that to real life.

Emma- I think it found me. I only saw the shadows until I looked at it after I got home and discovered the heart

Ann- You just couldn't stay away. hahah

John- I love Michigan, right?

betchai- you are quiet, but you always seem to come by. thanks!

Lin said...

Dang! We can never beat Ann!! Sheesh. Even when she takes a break, she STILL wins!!
