Hello! Come on in for a visit! This is one of the watercolor images from my photos that I did the other day.. I didn't post them all as there were a lot of them! This is our back door in the Autumn. And don't worry, I have other normal photos in this post. But a few of the watercolor from photos. I still think they're amazing!
Wednesday evening we attended a wrestling tournament for 5 year old Hayden's 2 week wrestling camp. It was a fun time! We were so proud to see the first match and he and his little opponent were smiling and having fun.. the referee seemed to be enjoying it too!
And then he pinned his opponent and won the first match! He won his second one too by points, 21 to 8!
And then the awards ceremony and guess who was 1st Place in his age group? Yes, our boy!!
He is so proud of his medal. :-)
Just a few more of the photo to watercolor conversions. This is of an antelope that I got when we visited Mt. Rushmore.. then drove through a wildlife preserve to see the buffalo.
The herds of buffalo were wonderful.
We also visited Devil's Tower - a huge monolith in Wyoming that was central to the movie "Close Encounters of the Third Kind".
One of my Stargazer lilies.
I volunteered at Multnomah Falls yesterday and took a snap of this photo that is by the visitor center counter of Vista House covered with ice. Isn't this amazing?
I took this photo from the reserved parking for USFS and volunteers - a different vantage point.
This is the bluff to the left of Multnomah Creek where we park. See how things are greening up? The moss and ferns are perking up.
I just love all the little ferns that cling to this vertical rock wall.
I hope you're not tired of seeing this beautiful lodge.
I stopped mid-road to snap this shot of the underbrush putting out new leaves.. the winter is over, yay!
When I arrived home I was so happy to see that the tiny little violets were in bloom! We have 3 colors - white, lavender and dark purple. You can see one purple one in this shot. The white ones seem to have come in first this year, which it's usually the dark purple ones.
And the daffodils are in full bloom in the garden.
Oh my they are amazing flowers and smell like Spring!
I'm off to swim today and then tomorrow I'll be leading a Volunteer Training Workshop for the Friends of Multnomah Falls. I'll be the MC and move the meeting along. It will be in the historic Crestview Manor. Busy times! Have a great weekend! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
