Little friend...


This is from 2022....she was coming regular till a neighbor had a lot of work done which included sawing and hammering.  I never saw her again...

From the back yard


 How appropriate that this flew over the neighborhood today...this is just a tiny cropped portion of the pic and I have fiddled with it trying to make it clear.  It was so high up, and in front of clouds a big lot of the time.  I did not think I was ever going to get it half focused.  And it was not so much the focus that made it blurred, it was me shaking.

Smile!


 I have posted this before and suppose I will post it again someday.  I did not know that grasshoppers looked like this till I took this picture.

July 2015


  And older photo...taken 9 yrs ago.  I loved having sunflowers and watching the birds on them.  They were right outside our dining room window...maybe 6 or 8 feet away.

Ready for one


I wish I had this tomato now...and about a dozen more just like it.

In the neighborhood today


Our daughter was mowing the yard and sent a text that it was hunting again...I grabbed my camera and got a couple half decent shots.  We have seen it three times now.  We are pretty sure it is an Osprey.  Anyone that knows for sure either way, I am open to your idea.

I was wrong!


 This and the previous post of a rose are from the same rose bush, but they are not the Oso Easy Italian Ice.  I thought my daughter had said they were all the same rose, but these roses out back are a different variety.  But they do change color.  They are supposed to be coral colored and stay that way about a day and then change to the more pink color.   Right now, due to some heavy rain the past day or two, there are a lot of petals on the ground.

Heading out to work...


I need to find the original of this and see if I can count how many horses there actually are.  This was taken in Parke County, Indiana.

Oso Easy Italian Ice Rose


 The title is not a mistake in spelling...our daughter has 5 or 6 of these roses, this 'color'...I say 'color' that way because the roses change how they look.  I am not sure if it is the age of the flowers, the amount of sunshine/cloudy days they have.  I have not even tried to find the reason.  But the roses change how they look almost daily.

Just a few turtles...


 I am again digging through the archives...this has been posted before.  I love to find turtle on logs, soaking up the sun.

Hollyhock


 This is a shot from 2017...I love hollyhocks but have only raised them a couple years.

From last fall


 This was just a quick snap with my phone as I was leaving one morning...I love seeing spiderwebs with dew but never seem to get a real good shot.

From 2023


 One of the last shots I have taken of the moon...not my greatest shot, yet there is something about it that I like...

From the neighbor's yard...


 Our neighbors sometimes feeds the birds...but not all the time.  I enjoy watching what comes and goes, specially the Bluebirds.  But they are never in a place where I can get a photograph.

American Robin


 One thing about here, you can almost always look out and see a couple robins, if not more.

A not so loved carpenter's bee


 I tried snapping this and was amazed I managed to get one at all.  I will say I missed a lot because it was not still long enough.

Tulip


 I cannot stop taking photos of these tulips.  This particular variety.  The tulips in general have lasted longer than I remember any lasting...I think this variety is nearer to being completely done than the others.  My photos do not do it justice though.

Yum!!!


 My daughter went for a quick walk over the weekend, and found these two beside the walking trail.  I wish it had been about 100 times as many.  But I cleaned them and fried them for Roger.

A better view


 

It was finally warm enough with no rain to get out and take a photo of her, or him.  I suppose I don't really know whether it is the mom or dad.

From the archives


 I wish I were traveling down this road now...even if I can't remember exactly where it is, I do know the general area.

Cannot open front door


 It will be a while before we can open our front door....the dove has decided to build a nest in the wreath.  The photo is by my daughter.

Growing in the wind


 Spring is springing, even though the temps would fool you...if you stepped out blindfolded you would think we were still in winter.  It is cold and damp today. Another in our backyard shot.

From the back yard


 This is one pair of Mallards that roam the neighborhood.  They visit under the neighbor's birdfeeders sometimes.  A day or two after this was taken, three were on the roof.  Then Copper's barking disturbed them, they flew and I have not seen them all day today.

From January 2023...




As far as I can tell, unless I have forgotten to label it, I have not shared this photo before.
