Weekly Photo Challenge:Structure

For the past two days, I have been observing this spider in our backyard. It is the first of it’s kind, that I have seen, in the time we have lived in this house.

I have applied HDR to add to the effect of the Structure of the web. According to what I have read, this spider is called an Orb weaver spider. In the time that I have been observing it, it has had two meals.

Weekly Photo Challenge: alphabet

2016-01-017

The challenge at the Daily Post is Alphabet. Because the sun made an appearance, we decided to head towards the river. I decided to go with what I saw today, and I have started with the letter R… R is for Roberta and for the many beautiful Rocks that compel me to pick them up and put them in my pocket.

It’s a Bees Life

DSCN9367-007

After several months of going back and forth to Portland, we have been content to stay at home. We tend to our small garden and I have really enjoyed getting to eat a cucumber everyday.

DSCN9356 Our bees are doing well and their activity keeps us entertained. We have been watching Little League finals in Williamsport, PA. The Mother Hen in me watches every little facial expression of joy, sadness, and the tears of disappointment. It pulls at my heartstrings as I observe them.  I hope that they are never told, that boys or men are not supposed to cry.  I cheer them on, in the sidelines of our living room. The team from Lewisberg, PA is quite impressive, as well as others, but I give them all a high-five for putting their hearts into what they have a passion for.

Texture Tuesday

FebruI came across five of these ornate little hand stitched squares. I found them at a thrift store, as I rummaged through the linen. I think they are fascinating.

DSCN3404I’d like to know the history behind them, who actually did the work, and how are they to be used. They are so pretty, I’d like to display them in some way.. I am linking to Kim Klassen’s Texture Tuesday.
