2014/004: Queen Anne’s Lace

A whole big field of it…for my dear friend Kathy, who likes Queen Anne’s Lace.
This was taken on an early morning photo walk with a friend (last spring?). How nice it is to know someone who doesn’t mind getting up early and getting out of the house for some photography fun! I can’t wait until spring!

Do you spot the spider web in the lower left corner?

Found these two wandering around the Butterfly House on one of our visits there. Kind of cute, don’t you think? I want a pet snail 🙂

2014/002: Guinness Bokeh

A little fun with bokeh before I take our Christmas tree down 😉
I used to not like beer….. tried it as a teenager a few times, but yuck!! (And no worries, it was perfectly legal because I grew up in Germany and you’re allowed to purchase / drink beer and wine when you’re 16)….. then Brian came along and drove me to drinking talked me into trying a Guinness, and much to my surprise I actually liked it! The cans, not the bottles!! (yuck!) That even made hubby happy, and he said that he should thank Brian for getting me to like beer, because now when he stops to pick up a 6-pack for himself, he’ll pick up some Guinness for me and won’t have to say “nothing” when I ask him “what’d you get for me??”


2014/001: Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all my blogging friends and followers. Wishing you all a happy and healthy 2014!
(And phew!! What a relief to be able to number my posts again and not have to come up with a real title for every single one! I’ll still try, though 😉 )
