Spring... while everyone else has summer - Well - not in the Southern Hemisphere.

I have been crazy busy lately... but wanted to pop in to say hello. My poor little camera has been working overtime. It felt like Spring would never get here, but it finally did. We have had a nice amount of rain - and an equally nice amount of sunshine. We had 2 grand daughters (ages 5 and 7) spend a week here... WHO KNEW people so small could have so much energy - or that maybe I don't!!! But they were fun - I have to admit.

We have this plant that grows around here. Some of you probably know what it is. Apparently each plant only blooms about once every 5 to 7 years. This year, a bunch have bloomed.

The girls and I picked some on the way up to our place... and put them in jars with food color... What you see below is the result. Who knew?! It was a fun experiment.

I will post some layouts when I make them of the girls... I took tons of photos - no surprise there!

A couple of days ago, I went to Seeley Lake, and was taken back at the view out my windshield... I mean I go to our cabin all thetime, but sometimes I forget to look... really look. I fell quite blessed to be able to have this place in the summer.

This last photo is one of those where the light and the subject are just right. If you look at the water just to the left of the dock in the pick above... you will see where this family of geese was. I am quite pleased with this photo.

So there you have it... this is what I have been doing. I hope everyone is well, and having a splendid day - where ever you are!
