Header Competition # 38 - "Home is Where the Heart is"

The header theme this week by Tom and is "Home is Where the Heart Is".  Mac, DarlaGail's Man and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. 

Martha and Tom are on a break. Come back as soon as you are able my friends.

Home is a special place and the Buckeye Tree is a tribute to my home state of Ohio. It does grow some each year and is the focal point of the front yard.
This was from a get together at my son's house and with home goes family.

Yes, they can be crazy if you let them.

I finally choose a look at the house with things blooming up here in the North.

If anyone is interesting in participating please contact me for we need some people to join us.

You have a nice-looking house, as well as family. I looked through your past few posts. I like your picture of the red-wing blackbird and the grosbeak looking out past the stationary bird. The nature preserve looks like a nice place to visit. I know what you mean about deet. I need to put it on whenever I visit our local Audubon Center.

Gail's Man said...

Nice house and tree. And I thought you'd put a photo on of your favourite tackle shop or lake!

That is a big and lovely family you have. I bet they can get a little rowdy but that's OK too isn't it. That is the best header topic family. Wish I could join you guys in the header challenge but...

Tom, how truly blessed you are! The house is nice, but your family is what makes it a home... I can only imagine how you must feel having them all together at once! The expression on your face says it all! Thank you for letting us all see this and witness your joy!

You are so right Tom and my heart will always be in the bush so I feel at home each time I drive there.

That is some tree for the front garden I agree with you it is the focal point :)
