It’s been a while since I posted some photos and now I have a new toy to play with! We got this:
last week!! I LOVE it! It weighs about 9 ounces, has a 10x digital and optical zoom and 10 megapixels. I managed to get ONE photo on our walk described below before the battery died, but this little bird was taken from nearly 50 yards away:

The cycle is the same, but everything always seems new and different. Each year the tree is just a bit taller, casting slightly different shadows over everything. And of course, the woman who makes everything happen can’t resist moving things around and around!
Thanks to her, the porch is ready for visitors:
And if you think you’d have trouble finding us, then just look for this:
The Grumpy Granny Garden is ready for yet another season. Ya’ll come back, now, ya hear?
