A few of my latest nature photos {birds}….

In an earlier post, I posted a photo of beautiful blue robin eggs in a nest under my deck. The mama bird is in one of the photos below {I forget which!} She did not like me getting too close, so I used my 55-250mm Canon lens for these shots. There are quite a few Robins in our area. Every once in awhile I see new and different birds. I’m hoping to capture those as well! πŸ˜‰

Our [finished] Butterfly Island

Our Butterfly Island is completely done now. What a project! It was a lot of fun.

I had some help with this project. My hubby and his parents. His mom went with me to do the shopping and helped me plant the flowers. My hubby and his dad did the digging so that the butterfly island would be level. (Our yard has a slight slope to it, that you really can’t see just by looking at it. But when laying the garden block out, you could tell.) read more

It's like she's flying…

My daughter, Jacey has ALWAYS loved to swing. I think for the swings alone, it was worth getting this play set last year! πŸ˜‰
She swings so high, closes her eyes, and really enjoys the moment. I can only wonder what she’s thinking as she’s soaring….
