In The Hood

A few days ago, we spotted a group of Hooded Mergansers. I was so excited, because I have never seen any before! Too bad that we had to idle on the side of a busy highway to snap them, with cars racing by. This is why the pictures are not the best, plus they were a decent distance away. We had to leave way before I was ready.






This one is the female and the rest are males.

An optimist is someone who figures that if it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's the bluebird of happiness. ~Robert Braul

Monday Mural

Here are a few of the creatures that were painted at our annual street art festival. The scaffold is still there because the artists were still painting. I love the woodpecker pecking at the building!





Just because it is not in a museum does not mean it is not art.

Into The Heart Of The sun

The birds were flying right into the heart of the sun. 




Only from the heart can you touch the sky.

The Puzzle

Do you do jigsaw puzzles? We like to, but our time to do them is limited. This is a recent one that we finished. I think it is SO cute. But what are the little creatures? Maybe field mice?
