I love a well focused photo. This one of a Great Horned Owl’s eye is my favorite. I used a tripod and self-timer for this shoot. The big secret–the owl was tethered to a perch.
I’m sitting on a rock enjoying the sunset yesterday… Molly, not so much. She likes to run whenever she touches sand. The sun dropping below the horizon doesn’t do anything for her.
We have an iron tulip in our backyard garden that’s held up various plants over the years. I leaned it against our house the other day when I noticed a very distinct shadow belonging, of course, to the tulip–I almost couldn’t tell which one was the shadow. Old age?
This is Blue Monday, the “official” Blue Monday of the year, according to usually unreliable internet sources. The idea is to not make today depressing despite dreary weather, holiday bills and the stark realization that you are going nowhere at work. Shorthand: take action. Laugh. Be strong. Get a hyacinth macaw to liven up your life. If you want one that requires no care, try porcelain parrots at Neiman Marcus for $2,495(free shipping)–that way you stimulate the economy. Or, like me, go for a long walk with dogs and be thankful you have blue Mondays.
Four dogs (the two big ones are mine)are chatting on the beach while four humans approach.
Three days ago I posted about the mushrooms growing on our dead oak. Today I noticed even more mushrooms. Should I be concerned? Getting the shovel ready.
The fallen leaves from the crepe myrtles were so colorful, we decided to leave them in place!
