I glance out the window, and saw this fawn illuminated by sunlight. I’m sure she thought she was hidden, not knowing the sun turned her bright gold in those green shadows. I snapped a lot of photos, but that darn branch was blocking her face in every one.
Chickens have such a singular body shape. Like a Zeppelin. Streamlined, yet entirely not. The above hen is a Sapphire Gem. I think. See her fluffy feet? I expect her to make chocolate-brown eggs, and have my fingers crossed. None yet, but she’s only four months old. Our chickens are mostly Aracunas, and Americunas. IContinue reading “Almost Wordless Wednesday”
I’ve had a long-outstanding request to paint our kitties. So I did. You might recognize the quilt they are sitting on. In reality the quilt is tan, but I didn’t want it blending too much with the cat. Maybe, though, it would have been better…? The light coming through the pennants was glowing, but asContinue reading “painting: da kittehs”
A few random photos I’ve taken recently, of interesting things. A lady out of town owns a small garden nursery. She has plants the Walmart does not sell, plus it’s nice to support someone small. She had these blue Balloon Flowers, which I had never seen before, so had to buy. I took the photosContinue reading “odds and ends”
I did not take these photos, these are from my sister who lives in Kyoto. I thought they were so pretty, they should be shared.

I don’t know what the sign says, but what an entrance. (And no shortage of bugs on that windshield!) NebraskaContinue reading “photos through the window”
My mom made me this beautiful quilt block stained glass sun catcher for Christmas last year. I moved it around the yard trying to make it catch the light. Finally came back inside and caught some sun. Isn’t it pretty? It will remind me of crafting in summertime, even with the snow.
We always start the parade with the flag! Can you tell we sat in the wrong part of the parade route? I was thinking, “Oh boy, shade!” which didn’t work at all for the photos. Do’h! I’m trying out my new camera with long distance zoom AND action settings. Some hits and misses. ButContinue reading “at the parade 2016”
I was out taking photos of paintings (Sunlight is best to capture the true colors, but also turned so there’s no sun glare. It’s always a challenge.) and a flock of something or others alighted in a tree near me. They flew away when they saw me. I got one good photo. I saw oneContinue reading “unusual visitor”
