We Wish You A Merry Christmas!

Since everyone is busy with family and friends during this season of the year we may not be posting until after the holidays are over, so we are sending you a Christmas card. I painted this picture some years ago for my card that year, when the pine trees were much smaller than they are now.

Both Baker and I want to wish you all a VERY Merry Christmas and a Happy and prosperous New Year.

Photo Hunt Favorite

Hi folks, I am sorry about being late with Photo Hunt again this week.

This blog being primarily about the pond and surrounding area, it was hard to come up with a favorite. Since winter is here there is not much going on around the pond; no one is coming fishing because it's too cold, the fish aren't eating much so they don't follow Baker around, the turtles have dug into the mud to sleep, the frogs and lizards have also hibernated, and there are no pretty insects around. - SO there's not much to post about the pond right now.

My favorite season of the year is Spring as everything comes alive again. These are my favorite photos that I took of the pond last spring. If you have been following the blog from the beginning, you may have seen one similar to this first one as the header, but here is a different shot:

I love the limbs with the fullness of the Dogwood blossoms.

The sun shining on the flower petals was spectacular.

Well,I guess we'll just have to tolerate the cold until my favorite season comes around again.

Feeding Breakfast

The PhotoHunt theme for this week being "Breakfast" made me think about the greatest breakfast we had seen around the pond.

Both Baker and I saw the Bluebirds feeding this summer but neither of us were able to get a good close-up photo of them, so below is a painting on my handmade paper of bluebirds feeding their young. The title of this painting is "Waiting To Feed".
