Huge Mushrooms

I have these mushrooms that grow in my yard. They are really big mushrooms measuring over 9" across (yes, I measured them). I even make my husband mow around them (he thinks I'm crazy). I got down on the ground with the ants (maybe I am crazy) and took some pictures of them with the Coolpix macro feature. I'm hoping for a "faerie ring" soon!

I'm home

Just back from a nice relaxing week at my parents' house. They live way out in the country just 10 minutes from town! :) Seriously... It's quiet (you hear cows mooing a mile away), pitch dark at night (real stars to be seen!) and I can get to a good coffee shop in just 10 minutes. Oh, and I get free babysitting and don't have to get out of bed until noon!

Took this from the road... waaaay out in the country.

Ah... The Beauty...

My father has again purchased a Harley Davidson. He's had "quite a few" according to Mom... But, I got to go with him to the dealership to pick it up today and while I was waiting, I snapped a few with my Lensbaby 3G of some of the show bikes. This is one of my favorites and it is when they brought his bike out from the back.

The Apple Tree

I have been documenting the first appearance of apples on a tree that I planted nearly 6 years ago. I have 7 that have survived. The tree is nicely "netted" to prevent the many birds & squirrels out here in the country from tasting them. I just hope I get to take one bite of these beautiful things. Here is a slideshow of their progress.

Casablanca Lily

If you ever checkout my flickr stream, you will see a lot of these lilies. They are blooming all over the garden. Finally, a year when the voles and the boring beetles have not destroyed them all. We only lost 2 this year. The picture of the day...

Ok, 1 year anniversary?

Yeah, it's been nearly 1 year since my last post! Yikes? Why is it that this is so hard. Is it because I'm a visual person not a verbal person. Ha, ha. Ask my husband. I think he would disagree about the verbal part. Ah, well. My goal is to maybe write at least once a week? Maybe write about each picture I post to flickr because shit, I'm there all the time? It's late (12:09 am) and I need to be up at 6 am because that's when the girl (daughter) gets up. Here is the pic of the day!
