Jengibre in the snow

Jengibre out in the snow. We do not get a lot of snow in the Willamette valley in Oregon, so when we do it is always a big deal. It started snowing here yesterday and is suppose to continue through Friday, just off and on and not a lot but just enough to make everything post card perfect. Below are just a few pictures I took in the garden. Whether you live where you get a lot of snow or where you never get snow, I hope you will like them.

MyKia birdwatching

MyKia watching the bird activity at the bird feeeder in the back garden. I had just filled it and went to get my camera as the birds began to feed at the newly filled feeder. But he made the better subject!

I got my new 100mm F2.8 Macro lens a couple days ago. I think I will have fun with it this spring and summer. I went out and clicked a couple pictures in between rain showers, but there is not much to see right now, that is still pretty that is. And it is cold out there, ha, ha!
Anyway here is a quick sample photo. But when I set up my monopod or tripod this summer they should be sharper and clearer. Hand held, I never seem to keep my hand steady enough.

Who is that masked --- ?

This cat has a home and I wish he would use it. He has learned how to use our pet door and makes himself at home sleeping on the couch at night. Eating tuna from my cats bowls and hanging out in the back garden on his off time. He is a nice cat but I wish his owners would take better care of him. They work by day and leave him out in the elements while they are at work and they leave him outside at night when they are home even on the freezing nights we have had. Frankly I don't know why they have him at all.

A touch of summer

Always at the New Year I am ready for summer! I had a cold for Thanks Giving and another one for Christmas.
Even my cats are coughing and sneezing! About this time of year I am ready to move to a year round warm climate.

So I thought I would post a summer or spring flower a day for awhile. Maybe it will bring a little summer into your cold winter too. And those of you that have summer where you live year round maybe you could share some of your warmth with us to warm up with!!!!
