The Sentry.........



The new corner in my backyard fence was a big change for Barney and he didn't quite know what to do with it.  Now it is his major spot  to watch people and dogs for by the spot.  He discovered it as a useful place to be while I spent time painting on the south side of the house. He stays out with me all the time that I am out there working so he was able to really check the corner out while a distant neighbor walks by with hare two very large dogs.  He  loves to see them and bark at them once they go by.

Red Maple........


It is a young tree that behaves differently every year.  This year the east side has changed color and the west side is still green.  I do think the red is a better richer color than in the past years.  We have one tree in town on main street that is pure bright orange and I think it is the only one like it in town.  I hope to get a shot of soon.

Blue...........


Creeping bluebell puts out one more stem of blooms.  All other plants are died back but this one seems to want to pretend that it is spring.

Sunny Saturday........


The Stella is putting out a couple of stalks of buds for one last time.  I am sure they will get frosted and frozen before it gets through opening up all the buds that are on the plant.

A Bright Spot......



Some of the zinnias still have buds on them and the new ones are coming on right now.  They are in sharp contrast to the many fading older blooms.

Welcome Sunshine........



The color of our house is similar to that of the artist Calude Monet's house in France.  It looks its best in the spring and the fall yellows really help it to stand out in color.

Blue Water, Blue Sky..............


A photographic challenge for me is taking shots of water.  I took a lot of neat shots that proved to be only focused on the reflection of the trees in the water. The trees were in focus and that which was in the water would not take.  This ended up being my best of the bunch.
