The weather here in Dallas is just as wacky as the rest of the country: hot one day, chilly the next. But some of the plants and trees in my backyard feel that spring is upon us and are showing their colors just to prove it. Here’s a couple of photos I shot yesterday of my rosemary bush and redbud tree both showing their own shades of purple. Glad to see it. The yard always looks better with some purple blooming. Enjoy.
In a house of five cats and two dogs, dinnertime is always an experience. It’s never dull here around 5:30pm. The most vocal and insistent critter demanding to be fed is Mickey. These two video clips of Mickey give you a glimpse of the fun that occurs daily at our place. Mickey is one entertaining pup. Enjoy.
This is what I had to go through to get it.
Trying to feed the birds around here is nearly impossible, too many squirrels think the sunflower seeds are for them. Like this guy who doesn’t think I’m on to him. Ha.
Just a lazy Sunday afternoon photo, nothing exciting happening at the house. Mike picking a record to play and the cats all lazing around. There are four cats in this photo. Can you find them all? (more…)
In the heat of the summer, it is hard to get motivated to do anything after I get home from the day job. Becoming one with the couch is about all I can muster the energy for. But I managed to shoot some flowers that I have in a basket on my front porch that were speaking to me the other day as I was watering them. “We won’t last forever” they said. “Soon we’ll only be a memory”. They were right, so I got out my camera and macro lens and these are my favorite shots of my purple porch petals. Enjoy.
My first sunflower plants. I never tried to grow them before. I don’t know why, I guess I just didn’t think about it. But now, thanks to my co-worker Claudia, I have blooming plants in my yard. I can’t wait for them to to multiply and turn my whole backyard yellow. The dogs will just have to get used to sharing the yard. Clicking on the photos will take you to my Flickr set of more sunflower images. Enjoy.
Last night’s photographic study of the chairs on my backyard deck.
