2011/113: Scavenger Hunt

A few weeks ago, Karen posted a scavenger hunt on her blog, and I thought it would be fun to participate, especially since I missed her first one due to lack of time.
This time she wanted us to find a…

Body of water
This is a pond about halfway between home and Greg’s office (or in this case, the mall 😉 )
I thought about taking a picture of the outdoor pool at the gym, since it’s now open on week-ends, but that would just be mean to all my friends up north, where it’s not exactly swimming weather yet.

Train
Couldn’t resist getting this when I saw it at Michaels several years ago. I painted it to match the curtains in Sara’s room. Melissa has a train, too, and painted it herself. Sara was still too little back then.

Hood
Yup, Sara plays with cars, too! This Ford Mustang was her pride and joy when she bought it (with her own money) and even took it on vacation with her that year, to show her brothers.

Sprout
No idea what they are

Bud
This may look like a rose bud, but it’s actually the bud of a blackberry blossom

Basket
I had several to choose from here, but I photographed the easiest, that had the best light and required the least amount of work (no digging old Easter baskets out of the closet, or climbing a step stool to get a basket off the shelf). This one sits on the bathroom cabinet and holds my shower gels, body lotions, etc.

Bunny
Another item I found in Sara’s room. This little bunny was one of her first toys, that I bought for her before she was born.

And for the BONUS….. a
Cardinal!
My lucky find! I was sitting at the computer last Saturday, when Sara looked out the window and said cardinal!!! Of course I grabbed my camera, but had to switch lenses… and it flew away before I could do that. I waited and waited, and spotted it sitting in a tree on the other side of the neighbor’s house. I decided to use my 80-400mm lens, but of course it flew away before I could dig out the lens and put it on the camera. I waited and waited, and it finally paid off when he sat down in the tree right outside my window. Still had to shoot through the window and some branches, but I got him!


Signs of Spring

Finally…. some buds on the trees.
