Reflectionz

Image by SnaggleTooth 2015

Things are starting to look up now  that taxes are done n the temps have been above freezing in the balmy 50 's this week. I'm hoping to find time for cleaning up the yard n starting some seeds to transplant to deck containers after frost danger. I finally got some potting soil so I can begin.

There is so much out there to pick up, the deck alone may take a whole day to get the old leaves n flowerpot piles cleaned up. Hopefully I can find the Lilly pots n chicken wire protect them before the squirrels dig them up.

Now sunsets are later, just after 7pm, so there's a better chance to catch a sunset after errands n maybe take more pics with the new cam. I'm still struggling to get better, usable shots.

I'm again revisiting old cam files, where I have so many unused pics. This one from the D-bridge at sunset is from July 2014. It shows 6 Canadian geese silhouettes with reflections. I'm reflecting thoughts on that balmy warmth n colors to look forward to again.

More old pics will appear in "Reflectionz" posts with new altered images in the near future...

Today.... ( Daffodils sprouting a few feet into the woods, along with a stray piece of litter to clean up)



I'll take Spring in whatever increments are available-

Nope, not all done with taxes yet, still have 3 pages left on the state form, mostly zeros n reading instructions, then need to copy it all n get in the mail hopefully this week.
Back to reading form instructions...

Blossom Break

If this doesn't look like a Spring Gremlin, nothing does! Someone must've watered it after midnight...

I slightly "twirled" an Impatien macro pic from the new cam. I really like it that way-

I have very sporadic, one or two at a time blossoms in the dim, chilly window, keeping company with the Christmas Cacti, n African Violets blooming the same minimal way.

 They dry out every day, with the heat going, but have managed to stay alive from the deck seedlings growing so late last summer.

Just today a lone primrose bloom from last year popped up on the window sill also. At least I have some green friends in here. Maybe I'll start some indoor seeds tomorrow. Still going nuts on taxes here- Back to work!

Bluff Fluff


Image by SnaggleTooth March 2015

Looking at this altered pic, I can almost imagine the green of spring returning...

 We had another day over 40F degrees n I tried to get as many things done as possible, but spring cleaning has far to go yet- As does the melting of icy, snow lumps in my yard, where the mini daffodils are still trapped under it.

The first 40F day I grabbed these pics when getting the mail. It was risky on all the slick ice getting to the center hill,( Bluff ), over the main beach n pier for these pics. Now looking out the windows today I see there's alot less, but I have little time to side-track.

I'd love to be taking a vacation in Fantasy land playing with more pics instead of being totally preoccupied moving stuff, cleaning, n painting the worst spots in here, but an insurance inspector is soon expected. Then I'll have only a total of 4 more days off before two tax forms must be sent out.  Reading the new Health Care form rules n worksheet are stressing me out.

So I predict the next few weeks postings will be light n few. I hope tomorrow's predicted snow will also be light...

Right after that's all done, I'll be in a lighter mood, n have more time for blogging.

Sno - Grey

Image by SnaggleTooth, March 2015

I've been having a very busy week with ,many extra things to do.

Finally I got my boiled dinner made yesterday. At least I won't feel deprived of that this year.  It used to be my father's favorite meal, n I miss him terribly. His B-day is just before Saint Patrick's Day, n were he still alive he'd have been 85 now. Yay for salty corned beef n lots of cabbage-

The cold is still hanging on here, with the melted down, icy snow piles everywhere, especially deep in my North-facing yard which is still a few feet high. Tomorrow another winter storm warning is in affect, just in time to go back to work again. I just had not worn my boots for two whole days! At least  we're not expecting alot , n a few inches seems like nothing after what we went thru so far this year.

I've been getting all ready for spring activities like  planting seeds n finding paint cans to freshen up around here, now only need 50 F degrees again...

This M-cove zoom shot really looks like  black n white, but it's in color. I liked the glassy reflection when I was taking it. Got some fun colors n faces from it too...

I'm about to spend alot of time reading tax instructions. Joy.
