Love Affair

Today’s tale involves my love affair with a horse. Yes, a horse. Our neighbors went on vacation and asked me to take care of their horse while they were away. Prior to this, I had been going over to the barn and pasture every day with apples and carrots, showing this horse how much she … Continue reading Love Affair

Gotcha!

I normally do not show three pictures of the same bird, but there are always exceptions especially when it comes to a bird I’ve been trying to capture for years. A gorgeous male Pileated Woodpecker was spotted almost immediately when I entered the park. Could it really be this easy when I’ve been “hunting” for … Continue reading Gotcha!

Getting There!

Friends, I am getting there. I’ve gone through 72 pounds (32.66 kg) of fertilizer so far. To give you an idea of what I’ve done, I followed the “per plant” directions which state for each established plant, work 1 cup of fertilizer into soil around drip line. To go one step further, I weighed that … Continue reading Getting There!

Bungled Bombshell

For about a week, my sister and I had been playing phone tag. Very unusual for us because we do our darnedest to return voice messages with a prompt phone call. We speak on a [gasp] landline phone, not a cell. My sister normally doesn’t turn her cell on so any texts I sent I … Continue reading Bungled Bombshell

Learning New

  I am always learning. Always. It seemed it was time for me to learn something new in my editing room. I use Photoshop just so you all know. I came across a blog recently that showed two functions in Lightroom that to me were new, camera calibration and radial filter. Knowing Lightroom and Photoshop … Continue reading Learning New

Life!

What are the chances it poured yesterday, the very day I planned on watering all my gardens? In fact, I had a sprinkler on, timer set, as I went upstairs to change from my pj’s into the clothes for the day. By the time I came back downstairs, a matter of about I’d say no … Continue reading Life!

Math Help

Yesterday I asked Hubby to help me figure out how much total square footage I have in my gardens. Why? The instructions on the fertilizers I plan on turning into the soil this Fall, direct me to put a certain amount in the soil per 100 square feet. Hubby’s eyes came to life after I … Continue reading Math Help

Own It!

Hubby asked me if I used several images to create this one picture. My answer was no. I couldn’t even if I knew how to, which I don’t. (smile) I was told the composition was exceptional, and to be truthful I was in awe as well. Just this one picture I could look and look … Continue reading Own It!

Treasure Hunt

Recently, I obtained another pair of eyes. Hubby’s as a matter of fact. He decided to come along with me on a photo shoot. I grabbed this opportunity and ran with it. That man really got into the spirit of things. On location, he immediately began to scout, looking all around, even pointing at gravel … Continue reading Treasure Hunt
