Flowers blooming on Cape Ann MA ~ What a delight! For Black and White Wednesday.



The story behind these funky birds is I originally planted pansies and something ate them. I refused to put out another plant. So I looked in the garage to see what we had; thus, the
'funky birds' that always bring a smile to my face as I drive into the driveway.
For 'X' ~ Xtra Funky for Alphabe






A haiku honoring the Sun ~ center of our universe. For Haiku My Heart.







An intriguing sky on Cape Ann MA through the trees. For Sky Watch Friday.





Me and My Shadow on Cape Ann MA amazed the snow is essentially gone for the moment.

We are wishing you the best in each day.

  5. Lovely photos! I had to laugh about the pansies and the birds. I've had entire plants disappear from my garden never to be seen again. We have a lot of different critters around here, sometimes they just uproot and sometimes the plant is completely gone. The birds look lovely in those pots though. :)

    And look at these daffodils... Ours have just come up and are beginning to bloom.

  28. I like your funky birds and you don't even have to water them! Glad to see the snow is gone. I guess they have to take the boats out of the water because the water freezes in the winter? I never thought about it before.

  29. Hi Carol ~~ Things are looking good around your Cape. I like your funky toy tub. The neighbors or Civic Association don't complain? Art looks fine even though she misses the snow.
    We didn't go to Tibet. It could have been an add on but we opted to come home. I think it was 23 days, a long time.

  37. I love the funky birds idea! I, too, don't like plant pots. So much work, with predators and watering draining your time!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Black and white shots look great! I want to do that more with my photos. It makes me remember the photos of my grandparents.

    Happy weekend!
