A SHUTTERBUG EXPLORES ~ 20

A Shutterbug explores the surrounding areas of Cape Ann MA each week with her camera and her assistant, most times. We do look for 'the magic'and sometimes it appears when we are seemingly not looking. What a gift! What treasures nature offers! 

~ (Posting for the week to save on my eyes. Thanks for understanding)

TUESDAY ~ Our World Tuesday 
We had a mild winter on Cape Ann MA until February came. Now we have snow, snow and it is snowing today. Pretty but I am ready for Spring. I even had crocus popping up.
Snow will keep them warm ~ right???

 She is My Valentine and warms my heart each day.

There are wild turkeys in this photo (below the white mark) ~ They were originally in the

car they scrambled away.

  1. Great post. I so enjoy seeing your art drawn as well as in photos. Your little Muse is a doll. Annie had a bath this week too. She doesn't like it either but girl, she smells so much better. ;) I wonder if Annie would leave on stick-on "earrings". ha... too cute.
