Wild Bird Wednesday


Horned Grebe


I have only seen this bird on our lake once  before in 17 years ... I guess I was lucky to spot them.  They are migrating through and will be gone by the next clear day.  They nest on northern lakes and marshes and winter on coastal bays and lakes.

Storms
Ever since I was a child, I have loved sitting on the porch, during a good thunder storm, breathing in the fresh clean air and watching the amazing antics of nature ...  it is so refreshing and I will continue to do it whenever I can...

Scribble Picnic



Strawberries
Once again, I cheated ... this is a very busy time for me and I had thought I would probably miss this weeks prompt from Micheal ... but, Strawberries?  I am so looking forward to my Mother's Day Strawberries so I just couldn't pass up this opportunity to share.  This is strictly a digital rendering with framing in Picmonkey.  Wishing all of the Mothers out there a Happy Mother's Day ... you deserve more than a day, but we'll take what we can get, right?

Scribble Picnic


Picket Fence
This is our little rescue, Buffy Boo ... she is a lovable cat with us but we have never been able to achieve a truce between her and our other cats.  She was dumped so young that I am quite certain her mother didn't have a chance to teach her kitty manners.  She loves going outside, but checks in regularly.  I think she is afraid of being dumped again.  As for keeping her in with a picket fence ... will never happen :)

I cheated a little with this one.  I took a picture of a house with a picket fence, digitized it, drew the kitty on another page and added her in.  It was a fun experiment.
