Photo journaling, ahhhhhhhhhh-SPRING!!!

Some nature photos from the last month or so-going backwards:
This was a lovely tree branch at Trader Joe's!  Just 50 miles south of where I live all the trees are in bloom.  I think we are a week or so behind up here in the north!

A fuzzy wuzzy cattail-this was taken yesterday.

Busy as a fuzzy wuzzy bee-this was yesterday too.

I found these sweet little grape hyacinths in a field when I was at an anniversary party on Sunday.

This is what woodpeckers do.  I wish I could catch them in action!

April 21st was a good cloud/sky day!

A perfectly placed cloud-April 21st.

I never get tired of rainbows!!!  April 21st

The buds are budding

Mossy green-what a beautiful shade!

This was a good day!  See that white speck-this was the last of the winter's snow.  :)  April 6th

I also found yellow and honey bees on April 6th.  

What a beautiful day it was.

I have more pics that I may upload later today.  Have a great day!

Photo journaling

Some photos from the last month or so:
Moonset-I took this photo one morning as the moon was setting below the horizon.  (I took it through the window while sitting at the table.)

I puppysat my puppy nephew, Diesel.

He's so cute and getting so big!

Darling clementines-fruit is so photogenic.

We had turkeys coming in to our bird feeder every day for a few weeks looking for food.  We threw corn out for them too.

The first day of spring.  Pretty but...ughhhhhhh!!!

My new hobby-reading books on nutrition.

Our handsome beastie boy, Rocco, turned 5 on March 4th.  We love him so!!!

Here he is on his birthday, looking all silly-ready to pounce because I was holding up a treat.

Pittsburgh skyline-my daughter sent me this photo.

I see this (looking at her phone)-a lot!

A girl and her cat!  My daughter and Boogz!

That's all for now-have a great day!


A very short rag rug photoshoot


I've only made two rag rugs in the last two months or so.  (I'm slacking!)  

I really love the colors in these two, although the lighting in these photos is off-so these pictures don't do the rugs justice.

It's cold!

A chipping sparrow hiding in the dogwood tree.

Mr Junco posing so nicely for me.

Pretty frost formations on my rear view mirror.

Frosty dogwood

Mr. Ram the Hood Ornament is up to his ears in snow.

Rocco is in his glory!  (Below zero temps don't bother him!)

Well, I think we've rounded the corner!  Only a few more weeks of winter left. 


 I'm looking forward to open doors, warm breezes, natural vitamin D production, fragrant and colorful blossoms, the smell of cut grass, robins, flip flops, and the sound of crickets!

What are you looking forward to?  I want to know!

Have a great day!

Photo journaling-brrrrrrrrr!!!

Some photos from the last couple weeks:
What a bunch of flakes!  (Hanging out on the deck.)

Snow is certainly beautiful...

but I'm ready for spring!

Lidl Gurl, super model kitty-cat

Smoothie-on a freezing cold day.  I had to put on layers after this one.

Heart peeps!  So pretty.  I normally hate the taste of peeps, but these are strawberry flavored and I liked them.

Chipping sparrow

Chocolate covered strawberries that I bought my daughter for her 23rd birthday.

The Roc is keeping watch with his eye dots!

Tufted titmouse sitting in the dogwood tree

Baby bellas looking so pretty!

The snowball effect



Rocco never minds the cold.

The other morning, the sun was shining just right on the floating snowflakes-making them look like glitter.  So cool and beautiful!
That's all for now-have a great day!

I just love this afghan I got at Goodwill a few years ago.  (The thing really holds the heat.)

I wish I could thank the person that made it and let them know that it is used and loved.  :)
