Cloudy & Foggy sunrise

I love sunrises with low lying clouds and fog.

In the first picture, I was standing up looking out at the pasture.

The second picture I squatted down and shot so I was shooting through the grass.

Sometimes just changing your position and the way your shooting changes the whole picture.

Early morning outing

Mr. Bird wanted out early on this day so I let him out when I went out to get some sunrise pictures.

As I looked back I saw him posing near some dead grass and I thought ” I need to take his picture”. He was staring off into the distance at something but I never could figure out what it was.

Mr. Bird lives in the house but every morning he goes outside.

He likes the springtime the best those days he will spend the most time outdoors.

Since our weather has been cooler he goes out and comes back in within one hour.

He does not like the rain, wind or heat much less the cold lol. When he is ready to come back in he sits in front of the french doors so I will see him staring in at me.

He just wants the best of both worlds indoors and outdoors.

Dolphins and ships

Dolphins have always intrigued me.

I love watching them swim in front of ships as though they are surfing the wave. It is their way to get a free ride and glide without having to put in much effort into it.

It seems a little bit dangerous but what do I know.

DIY – Garden Angels

I had been seeing the garden angels on Pinterest and knew I needed to make some.

All you need is an old shutter, acrylic paint, sponge brush,  a few thin boards or paint stirrers for the neck and arms, a large plastic saucer plate, spray paint, screws, and jewelry and flowers if you want.

I did not want to fully cover the shutters with paint so I left some white showing to add dimension. I used a sponge brush on the shutters and I spray painted the plates for the faces.

I am always collecting shutters so  I had everything for both of these angels already.

The green/ yellow one is for my sister’s yard and the blue/ purple one is for ours.

On my sisters, I used newer wider cedar fence boards for the wings on mine I used old cedar pickets that had been painted and aged so I had to sand them down.

I found 4 more shutters so I can make some more. I love the way these turned out.

The beauty of Pelicans

Pelicans are so amazing they fly with such grace as they glide in for a landing.

Here are a few pictures of some brown Pelicans.

They seem to spend a lot of times floating around in the water in between fishing for their food.

I took these pictures near Galveston and the Pelicans were everywhere.

Daisy dog

Daisy wanted to pop in and say HEY.

She has had a tough time playing fetch this summer in the heat and we always play in the early morning or later afternoon.

Since it has cooled off some she wants to play all day long.

When she gets hot she goes and gets in her pool to cool off. If she needs a break she will go fetch her ball and then lay under a tree across the backyard. When she is ready to go again she comes running.

She is always cooperative for a picture even if she wants to play fetch at the time.

I love my Daisy girl.
