A couple of snaps from this week

Ran an action or two on this image and added several textures at different blend modes and a few others things added  in. In general I just played around with it.

Started to go out to get the mail today and Mr Bunny was sitting outback beside the pond. Grabbed my camera and he was still there.....LOL.....That's generally not the case. Snapped this through the window with the 70/300 lens.  Was surprised and pleased with the way it turned out.

Through the years.....

Just browsing some old images and decided to show you the difference that 4 years makes.  The bicycle is still there....you just have to look harder to see it!  LOL....I've taken a few plants out of here....they got too big or just didn't do good in their spot.  I've also lost some of the Veronica that used to be in front of the Peegee hydrangea. 

Scroll down....I've posted twice today!   Making up for being absent so much!

Black & White

Just a shot I took early morning before work.  I found this unusual fern at a greenhouse in the KC area.  I didn't save the tag so can't tell you the name of it.  It almost looks artificial and even feels a bit like plastic too...LOL...but its not, it really has roots and needs water!

Lacecap 2011

Finally a shot to post.  I should have taken this early in the morning cause by the time I took this shot the wind was blowing.  But....wanted to get all the boxwood shrubs trimmed back while it was still half way cool and it was almost 1 pm by the time I got them all done.  Anyway, this still isn't the shot I have in my head but at least I've got one posted....LOL

Cookie Splash

I have been looking for a great looking coffee mug to do the cookie splash with. Finally found one the other day so Brent and I went out in the back yard last evening and made a mess. He dropped a lemon while I did the snapping. I get so into taking the picture that I always forget something...this time it was composition wish it all had been moved over more to the right but that's the way it goes.

This is one of the practice shots with water and I loved the heart shape in the middle of the splash also like the water color better than the coffee with the dark background.

I am SO Sorry!

I can't believe how long its been since I've even had my camera out of its bag.  My life has always been busy but lately, its turned into a wild zoo.  Gavin has had ballgames 2 and 3 nights a week, work has turned into a nightmare and life, in general. is extremely exhausting! I'm mowing grass twice a week and watering of the flowers has started.

This morning is the first morning I've had to just sit and read mail or browse the web.  My computer even thinks I've disowned it.  We have had some obsessive heat for the past few days but it finally broke yesterday and was pretty pleasant until last night and we had some huge storms.  A couple tornado's were reported a bit south of town and we had baseball size hail in a lot of towns around us but we came through unscathed. I had left work to drive 30 miles north to watch another ball game but turned around and headed for home when they came over the news with the severe thunderstorm warnings.  I drove through torrential rain all the way home but never saw any of the big hail.  The water was over the road in several areas.  We ended up with almost 4 inches of rain and have a few limbs down outside. I am glad the temps have come back down.  It's suppose to be pleasant today. 

My nephew is getting married tomorrow afternoon and its an outside services.  They were calling for rain but as of this morning, they have taken the rain out of the forecast and the temps are suppose to be in the upper 70's so it should be a perfect day for the ceremony. 

I hope to get some shots taken soon....will try and get some posted.
