How Exciting!

A special treat for me to photograph, this Red-breasted Nuthatch showed up while I was on the phone with my mom. I said good-bye and rushed to get the camera. This sweetheart was the perfect model for me as I clicked away.

Porch Pictures and Pansies

It's getting a little festive around here. Just a tad. I painted the porch chairs red and picked up a little throw for the table.

I took two planters and made a table out of them (finally!) I filled the pot up with this and that and then topped it with rocks and a perfect fitted glass.
Pansies are all the rage this time of year so I figured I'd play along.
Who can resist purple and yellow?

A Special Columbus Day Visit

Lately it seems I've been very busy with just about everything from Morgan's Marching Band (which is a blast) to helping out a friend with her gardening (which is a blast) but I was able to get up early the other morning to head out and capture something special.

On the way to that something special, I made a couple quick stops to see if I could find some things to make the special, extra special.
If you visit my friend Debi from The Giraffe Head Tree you would already know that the Nina and Pinta are on the Tennessee River and are now docked in Guntersville, AL for this Columbus Day.

I knew that the morning would be the best time for me to get down to take some photos, and that is what I did, but since it was early I was not able to get too close due to privacy issues.

The stern of the Pinta.

Stern to stern at the dock.
It was a glorious morning!

The Nina.
Note the fishermen in the background. I bet these guys have some of the most beautiful mornings on earth!
 Hope you all have a Happy Columbus Day!
