I thought it might be nice to document my improvement in using my new camera. Hopefully I'll improve....but if not I'll have 52 photos to look at a year from now. One photo a week. Someone or something in my home or yard or life that strikes me ~ for whatever reason.

Lilac Trees

I love lilacs and I love having a lilac bush in my yard. But I haven't been very diligent about pruning the lilac bush. It's tall...and rather spindly this year. These lilacs are about 12 feet above the ground...they kind of look like trees this year. So as soon as the blooms are gone I'm going to do a little chopping...and next year I'll take a picture of the whole bush!

Ferris Wheel

The weather is getting warmer ~ the ferris wheel will be a familiar sight. And speaking of sights ~ can't you just imagine the sights you'd see from way up high on the wheel!

Remnants of Winter

My rusty "Tin Man" has stood in my garden for five years. But the poor guy couldn't quite weather our past winter. At one point in February, over four feet of snow was drifted up over him. But it's all good ~ he's standing up again.
