Spring in My Backyard

After working with the family getting the yard cleaned up I sat and relaxed with my zoom lens. The price of the seed to attract these beautiful yellow birds to my yard is worth every penny. It is amazing how much joy I get seeing them at that feeder.

There were other sights to enjoy while sitting in the sun:

Wrestling Banquet

Wanted to throw this up and will be back later to update the details of the banquet.
I am the secretary for our Wrestling Club. This year I also acted as Team Photographer. I wanted to make something special for the 6th grade boys that will be moving up to JV next year. When I saw this Wishblade file for sale at Paperthreads

Signs of Spring

Celebrating any holiday or season at our house involves our pets

This is Seamus our Bullmastiff. He LOVES stuffed animals. He always greets us at the door with something. Usually it is my slippers, unless he has a new favorite stuffy that day.

This is Mocha. I rescued her from the cold winter last year. She is your typical cat hiding out most of the day in some secret spot and then showing up at bedtime to keep your feet warm. Here she is hiding between the Easter Baskets.

Here we have Smorz, our Calico . She is Alyza's cat. Here she is drinking the water from my daffodils. It isn't enough that she splashes all of her water out of her bowl, she has to drink out of whatever can be found on the dining room table as well.
