Photo journaling

A sunny little wildflower-hawkweed

Elephant cloud

Big cloud love

Daisy season!

My handsome, big/bad boy!  I say bad because he's been into chasing cars.  Bad Roc!

Same pose, different day

A wildflower I found in my yard.  I don't know what this one is called.  (It's called Star of Bethlehem-thank you, Mary!)

Only a few blossoms on my dogwood this year.


This is Buddy, my parents' doggie.  Buddy suffered a serious spinal injury a few weeks ago.  (He was running like a crazy boy in the yard (like always!) and came to a sudden stop.)  He blew out a disk in his back and his back legs were paralyzed.  Mom and Dad made the decision to take him to Akron, OH for surgery.  He's only three years old and healthy otherwise and they didn't want to let him go.  It's been a long road, but Buddy is coming along nicely and they are hopeful for a full recovery.  (Photo by my sister, Jodie.)

My dad and his best, best Buddy!!!  (Photo by my sister, Jodie.)

I forgot to include this photo in my previous photo journal.  These are Mother's Day gifts, given.  My mom wanted a canvas of this junco photo for her bathroom, so I went ahead and ordered it for her for Mother's Day.  My mother-in-law likes this photo of this eastern bluebird, so I printed her out a copy and framed it.

My mom's Mother's Day gift in action!

Livin' the good life!

The baby robins-a few days old, on May 17th.

This is what happens in 25 short days, May 27th.  They fledged this day.

On June 4th I noticed the robins were already freshening the nest-getting ready for round two.  I noticed yesterday, there's already a little blue egg in there.  :)
That's it for now, I hope you all have a wonderful week!

Lovely pictures. Love the contrast in the first picture. Roc really likes to pose, my dog will not hold still for anything. Hope your parents dog has a speedy recovery.

Jodie told me about Buddy's ordeal. He is such a fortunate dog to have parents that LOVE him so very much! I am so glad he is recovering well!! Where do I begin with all your beautiful pictures. Birds are amazing and I love the pictures for Mom and Mother In Law. Your Mom's looks adorable in her bathroom! That Rocco does live the good life! Oh, what would do without our puppies? ALL hundreds of pounds of them! HA. Love your daisy and elephant cloud too!!Awesome pictures as always!!!!

Super pictures! Like Dawnie, I don't know where to start - all are really nice. Hope Buddy keeps on keeping on - he's a good looking doggy, as is Rocco, of course! And the robins - wonderful!
I think the white wildflower is called Star of Bethlehem.

Thanks, Mary! I knew I could count on you to know what that wildflower was. You know all the wildflowers! :)
