Awesome Time

 It doesn't matter what sort of day I'm having, the colours of autumn always cheer me up. Take a little stroll with me around my yard.

For Laura

 Everyone loves pet photos. Everyone. Without exception. So, here's my dog. It is a gorgeous day here. Perfect for yard work, or just laying in the grass enjoying the last little while with the leaves.

Excuses, Excuses

A lot has changed in my household over the past month, and the month before that, we were busy preparing for the change. My firstborn has moved out at the ripe old age of 17, to a city 8 hours away. (insert tears here.) Photography and blogging were the last two things on my mind. But for the few of you who like visiting here, I did tote my camera around a bit and have finally managed to get around to working with a few photos.  That newfound time probably has a lot to do with the drop in temperature.  The great outdoors is suddenly not quite as tempting as a warm cup of tea in front of the computer.

Enjoying the Wild

It's not the greatest photo, but I finally got a shot of the baby 
American Avocet.

Such fancy plumage. A Wilson's Snipe- I think...

Dropping In

I wanted to do a quick post to say hello and share two photos with you. They are very different from each other, one being a straight up nature shot and the other being a heavily edited shot of a bubble. I made my own bubbles one morning and fashioned a wand out of a pipe cleaner. When my kids were little, I never ran out of bubbles as they were as important as milk. It kept my children entertained for hours. Actually, that morning, bubbles kept me entertained for well over an hour. If you haven't recently, I highly recommend you revisit this simple childhood pastime.  It won't help magically cure all of your adult troubles, but you'll enjoy a nice break.

May's Simplicity

It is very windy out there today. Warm, but it feels like Mother Nature is throwing things at you. I was out for 5 minutes and got hit in the face with several projectiles. Irritating, and a bit painful, so I decided to see what I had on my camera.  I'm in a black and white mood today.

Early Spring Days

Here are a few photos to give you an idea of how I've been spending these early days of Spring. I've been able to take walks before breakfast again. Transplanting seedlings has taken up a fair bit of time. I've also had some time to get creative with succulents I've overwintered. Exploring the garden for new growth is a daily surprise.
