Sunrise Rose

The morning sunrise kissed the petals of the rose and the dew sparkled like diamonds.

The bokeh is the glitter in this picture.

Sunrise Manvel, Texas 2020

I was able to capture this picture Monday morning of the beautiful sunrise in Manvel, Texas.

Our view has no obstacles just wide open space which makes for wonderful pictures.

Every sunrise is unique its beauty & colors along with the clouds is etched in our mind as one of life’s paintings we got to enjoy.

 

Cricket week 12

Our Cane Corso Cricket is 12 weeks old now and she loves to eat, play and find sticks.

She eats 4 cups of food every morning and every evening. We buy a high protein puppy food with 28% protein and 20% fat. It is called Valu-pak and we buy it at the feed store by the 50# bag. I think it’s about $35.00.

Our daughter researches a lot of dog foods because the Cane Corso are high energy dogs and they need some really good high protein food. This one was better than the IamsĀ  I was feeding the two boxers. I just put them all three on the puppy/ active dog food.

She was 20#s at 8 1/2 weeks and now at 12 weeks is weighing in at 37#s. She has gained 17#s in a month lol. That seems like an awful lot but she is not fat just stocky and she has a thick body.

She likes to sit or lay down during picture time so much for showing off her physique.

Zoee and her spend a lot of time wrestling so she can be quite active when she wants to be. They have a hole they dig in and they love tug of war with sticks and chase.

Her blue eyes are starting to change colors they will end up being a Goldy brownish color. She had on one of Daisy’s collars in this picture so it was too big. I need to order her a new collar I hate trying to figure out the collar colors. I need to get her a name tag as well with my cell number on it.

Actually, I need to get all 3 dogs chipped.

We expect her to be a minimum of 125# pounds but it could be more she is much stockier than her sister is. We thought the sister would be bigger than her.

Cricket the monster dog will be showing up occasionally to give you all updates of how much she has grown.

Orioles in the mulberries

I kept seeing a flash of yellow/gold and I could not figure out what kind of bird it was I was seeing.

Finally, after a closer look, I realized it was Orioles I have only ever seen 1 here before.

This is the first year they have invaded the mulberry tree. The mulberries have been getting picked for about 5 weeks and they showed up this week.

Normally it is the Cedar Waxwings that invade our tree in very large numbers. This year it was the Orioles in groups of 15 or so.

I was able to capture a few pictures but they are camera shy. They really are a bright-colored bird.

Nature is always putting on a show you just have to be in the right place at the right time.

Daisy Mae Praying

Daisy would like everyone to know she is saying her prayers for our country.

I caught her in this pose and could not resist taking her picture and making this post. Daisy rarely and I do mean rarely gets on the couch.

I think we all need this a little bit of inspiration by none other than our boxer Daisy Mae.

Macro of a Rose

I love photographing flowers with a macro lens and it is all the better when there is moisture on the flowers from recent rain.

This is a knockout rose in our backyard.

Flowers can brighten our days and give us great joy.

A couple of cardinals

I was walking around our backyard on one of my nature walks looking for something interesting to take a picture of.

You can always hear the chirp of a cardinal before you see them. Along came this male and female cardinal and they posed for me.

Life is full of color right outside in our own backyards. Nature and the wildlife never let us down they are always putting on a show.

 

Daisy’s 7th Birthday

Miss. Daisy Mae is our boxer whos birthday is today she turns 7 years old. She still acts like a puppy.

I think she takes a few more naps these days but she’s always ready and willing to play fetch or go somewhere in the truck. She loves picking mulberries off the tree or the ground.

She has this cute moan when you’re not paying attention to her and as time goes on it gets louder and longer most people think that is hilarious.

Daisy has a lot of fun with her sisters Zoee and Cricket but she gets tired of being the babysitter lol.

Happy Birthday, Daisy we love you!
