I converted a couple of my newer flower photos into watercolors using the app "Waterlogue". The first one is my newest Dahlia.. I think it turned out so neat.
Second is my Calla Lily that bloomed for the first time after being planted years ago. I like how the Japanese Painted Fern looks above the bloom and how the lily creates so much white space. I love this app!
We're in a spell of grey rainy days, so this shot a few days ago of the sunshine on my Rose Campion patch makes me happy.
I know these are wildflowers and they spread quickly, but I still adore them. The color of the blooms is a favorite of mine. I also adore the fuzzy grey on the foliage.
The tippy top blooms of my Mock Orange.
The three photos above were all taken from the comfort of my deck chair. Gotta love a good zoom lens.
Kristi got a few more good photos of the Evening Grosbeak. I like this shot as it has both the female (L) and male.
The male looks quite haughty, don't you think? :-)
On Sunday Dayle and I met a man to buy 40 pond snails that we hope will eat the algae on the bottom of our pond and stream. The boys enjoyed helping us put them in the pond when we got home.
Helpful boys putting the snails on the bottom.

Yesterday I had no appointments, meetings, swimming or anything -- and it was rainy, cool and grey.. so we watched "Castaway" with Tom Hanks and I crocheted on my Elise shawl. :-)
Kristi has gotten several things to keep the boys learning over the summer. She got this fish tank and this morning picked up the fish to populate the tank. They are all neon kinds of fish in all colors. They're really neat!
It's hard to get a shot of the fish together, but this was the best one I got. I love the pink fish!
Pink fish.. :-)
The weather forecasts are promising! The rain is to be banished later today and they are predicting sunshine and high temperatures this weekend, up to 91 degrees on Sunday! Bring on Summer! How is your weather doing? ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
