#246 Purple

Purple violets! My daughter has a green thumb when it comes to growing African violets! Just one small plant has so many flowers it is impossible to put them all in one image. So I picked these by chance but they all are beautiful!

#107 Footwear

These colourful baby shoes are hand made in town by the cobbler's wife! She is very proud of these sweet little leather shoes. They were for sale on a shelf in the window but she insisted they be placed just so on a table in enhance their unique characteristics!

#326 Things with wings

I am so sorry I did not get a picture of the Bald eagle. When I see an awesome bird like that I just stand and stare! I does,'t cross my mind to take my eyes off of it and "klick" it. Maybe I will outgrow this flaw. Please accept second best, a few noisy geese! LOL

#278 shades of Gray

Today was a day come true! Sunny, warm, and very little wind. On my late afternoon walk I saw these migrating geese feeding on a field. I carefully approached them, got well down below them and snapped away. To my surprise, it was not me that made them nervous but the bald eagle flying over head.

#313 Swim

We have had lots of rain this week. It may appear that "Donald and Daisy" are swimming in a swamp or pond, no, this is the field next to the driveway. Every spring these 2 ducks check out the waterlevel on the field and take a swim. After an hour or so they will fly across the road to the bay and swim away!

#342 Underneath

Does this collection of items suggest something?
Some one in our house is "under the weather."
I won't say who, but you may have noticed most of my pics have been inside! It is just a cold but it does slow one down!

#141 Hangs on a Wall

Hanging on our livingroom wall is this water painting of my horse Ember. Also there is a greeting card made from the original painting. The artist is a wonderful person who is very devoted to companion animals.
Ember is a Morgan Belgium mix and this year will be 23 years old, I have had her since she was 4 months old! Spoiled!
I can talk forever about my horse, but you will see more of her !

#123 Go Fish

I bought this goldfish in May 2003 for very little money. She was very small and rather cute! Now she is over 12 inches long and as large as my two hands clasped together. She is missing a few scales and the colour is more white than gold. Her aquarium is next to the computer so she watches us a lot. She is watching me now!

#249 Rain, Rain,Go Away

"Wait 5 minutes and the weather will change."
We have had freezing rain, now heavy rain, and tomorrow, whatever! My weather vane is collecting ice as the rain is beating down and freezing on contact. I took this picture from an upstairs window with my telephoto lens. I do not take the camera outside in this mess!

#323 The Wild Side

These are white tail deer and are very wild. I saw them just before dusk and they also saw me. The deer in the foreground is stamping her foot at me in hopes I will go away. They come out of the woods in spring time to nibble on the neighbour's field.
Oh and the bike in the tree, that's kinda wild too!
