Lucky Shots


I can't believe I managed to capture these shots of a hummingbird in flight. Pure luck! It was extra-bright that day, too, so I was basically just pointing my camera in the vague direction of the bird and hoping for the best.

Sometimes you just get lucky!

Coming Up Roses


Some of you may remember that I had to start over with my roses because the damn gophers continued to destroy them. We dug up all but one, bought new bushes, and put them in gopher baskets. They produced a few blooms last year, but this year they've really been spectacular. These are soooo fragrant, in addition to being quite beautiful. I'm hoping this is the first of two bloom cycles. We need smell-o-vision!

Recycled Unicorn

Aww, poor unicorn, put out with the recycling. I'm sure there is a children's story there somewhere...

And I choose to believe that someone did rescue her before the big bad recycling truck came.

Easter Repast

Yum! This is our thirtieth Easter together--wow!--and we have a tradition of having a big breakfast at home, usually French toast. Can I get a "Yum" up in here?

These are cute, right? They are little felt stuffed Easter bunny hair clips for my great-niece...so fun to make. The pattern comes from Gingermelon: cute blog, adorable Etsy shop!
