Seen Around Town











In this last shot you see "angry bird cat"
My granddaughter Hope put a bird garden stake
against my stone cat.
She is delighted with this.

Have you got a new camera or are you just playing with some new toys?? Love the results whatever! The last shot is priceless! Give Hope a big hug for me! Enjoy your week -- or what's left of it!

Looks like somebody got a LITTLE rain.

Faaaaaaaaaaabulous nature shots, Dianne!!!

The colors you captured in everyone of these images is truly awesome!

I especially love the 5th and 6th ones down.

Lovin' the point of focus on the third pic! And again, there's more greenery around your neck of the woods than there is in my entire neighborhood.

DJan said...

Oh, nice flowers! And I had to laugh at Hope's arrangement. Thanks for the peek at your flowers.

very creative of Ms Hope..

There is not a spot of nature around that is worth photographing even around the lake. I guess I could take a picture of the huge dying tree outside my kitchen window that made it through last year's drought but is certainly doomed this year. Your pictures are a breath of fresh air.

Libby said...

I love these - especially the last one - LOL!

Loredana Donovan said...

I love the first shot. Are those yellow coneflowers? I also like the contrast of the soft pink flower over the bricks. Artsy that one! :)

caregiver said...

I love them all! So many things to see this summer. Great shots.

Lowell said...

Nicely done, D. When I seen what you seen I really liked the scenes and your treatment of same. Very creative post with lots of "feel-good" stuff which helps the rest of us get through the day!

Hope is creative like her grandmother and I think has the same great sense of humor! I also like your new background.

Hoping you have a weekend filled with fun stuff!

Reb said...
