My wonderful brother and sister-in law are allowing me to borrow their macro lens.  Fun!!!!  I still am trying to get the hang of the thing and need to find my tripod but I have taken a bunch of pics.  There are quite a few that are far from great but I like them anyway!!! I really do need to try to take pictures somewhere other than my backyard!! Okay, bear with me, I know they are not great but heck, practice makes better!

Garden update

It has been a week of daily (almost) gardening.  The effort has certainly paid off.  There is still a small amount left to do but it will be easy peasy.

flower61The gardening urge is strong!!!  I went through some pictures of the garden from recent years and the planting but was catapulted out of  hibernation.  I did start the daunting task of trying to pull out the emerging garlic chives today. Mikey is very good at helping me dig (especially in those places that don’t need it).  Maisie was curious and the kitties sat on the steps and watched.  It was a good day!
