This is the Magnificent Hummingbird, sitting on our clothes line, just outside our office. Kevin and I have never actually seen a hummingbird sit still before. They are always flapping their wings and hovering or darting from one flower to another. This was a first for both of us. It appears that I need to buy a better zoom lens. The image is very poor quality from the severe cropping I had to do. The glare you see to the right is from my flash. When I got outside, it was still sitting there, but as I crept up, trying to get closer, it flew away.
That's our greenhouse, which sits on an island in the middle of our largest pond. This is the view we see from the back of our house. We count our lucky stars every single day!
This is my nemesis... the outdoor wood oven. I still have yet to figure out how to use it. Someday... I will master it. In the meantime, it looks cool.
Frankie relaxing after a fun day of running around in our 'yard'. With all this rain, she gets very muddy. She's not allowed in the house until I give her a bath. She is both the dirtiest dog... and the cleanest dog... all within the same day.
