Sunday Afternoons

I love lazy Sunday afternoons. I lounge on our front porch watching the birds and squirrels eating at our feeders and drinking from the water dish. Sometimes I have my camera ready. Here’s the June 30 photographic parade of visitors.

Long Weekend

It’s a long holiday weekend here in the US of A, Memorial Day. For some, it’s time to barbecue and party, for kids, it’s the start of their summer vacation. Some participate in services to remember those gone due to their service to country. Myself, I’ll be working on a custom crocheted critter. The day job doesn’t leave much time to create and I am grateful for the extra time on weekends like these. Seems everyone is busy with some kind of activity, even the birds in my yard. Enjoy.nesting material

Trying to be Spring

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.

Mickey Afternoon

I was finally able to shoot this portrait of Mickey yesterday afternoon.

This is what I had to go through to get it.
