Feels like summer….suddenly

It has seemed really hot and summery for the last couple of days.  Musicians were playing in the park, the bees are buzzing, the flowers are blooming, the seeds in our community garden are planted and watered,  I’m waiting for my figurine to grow “hair grass”, and the baby birds are getting a little bigger…

Weekend in the land of lens3

I’ve had a really busy weekend.  Highlights (in no apparent order) include cool skies, cool birds, dinner with friends, the baby blackbird nest I’m stalking, ducklings, snails, a bride and groom, murals, old cars, Neva, signs, croquet and lunch al fresco, a lost tooth, and a new kitty.   Enjoy these little snippets of the…

Baby birds everywhere

I was off work yesterday.  Had a couple of appointments, but after that was all done, I buzzed by the blackbird nest with the hatchling (still only one) and treated myself to a soul centering walk around my happy place, Lost Lagoon.  Here are shots from the day.  

Right place at the right time

Sometimes, when I’m out on my photo walks, I stumble on something that is rare and amazing.  That happened today.  I was so lucky to see a tiny blackbird wriggle out of its egg and hatch.  It looked exhausting.  And I was mesmerized.  Here are some photos, and some other shots from the day. Amazing!…

Gallery O’ Goslings

Mother’s Day Catch Up

Just sharing a few shots from our Mother’s Day celebration yesterday.  But first….here is MY Mom with my brother and I, a week before we moved from England to Canada. And check out my friend Patty and my rompers and knee socks.  (LOL, she and I are still friends, and today, we had a good…

Fight like a bird

Hi from my Mom’s house in Victoria. Dennis and I are both here celebrating Mother’s Day.  There were all kinds of photo ops throughout the day. Enjoy.    

Friday Quickie

YAY!!!  We made it to Friday.  I just have a few photos to share today….. Meet Zion, a neighbor’s 9 week old foster pup, who is with her for a month until he is sent to his trainer.  I’m in love….. My little Peggy, multitasking….shedding skin and wearing a skirt at the same time. HA!…

Yesterday and today

Tonight, I’m just sharing photos I took while I was out and about in the last couple of days.  I’m still stalking baby birds, found some interesting wall art, cute cats and dogs, and a few miscellaneous shots in the neighborhood.  Enjoy!  

Just a few Monday shots

This morning, before I left for work, Neva had a photo shoot. (HA!  She’s such an in-demand supermodel) Looks like she was having deep thoughts….likely about taxing catnip and the recent French election (HA again) But then, thinking wore her out.  Have a good day sleep Neva…. In other news….blossoms are falling fast…. Other springy…

Busy, busy weekend

I have had a really busy weekend.  Yesterday was all about errands, and also whipping to my favorite bird pond to see if the nest I’m stalking has eggs that has hatched.  Not yet, but the eggs are cracking.  And there were also so many “aww” worthy photo ops with goslings.  Last night, our friend…

Happy Cinco De Mayo

Hola.  Happy Cinco De Mayo to everyone.  Neva refused to wear her little sombrero for a photo today…. But Dennis held it over her head.  “Click”.  Thank you Neva… Other than that, here are a few shots from my walk today.  Big AWWWW to the baby birds!  Love this time of year!!! Have a great…
