It's the end of December and I am longing for spring, so instead of sharing something wintry, I decided to think spring.  A shot of a daisy from my garden after a spring rain.

I started collecting rocks after a trip to the shores of Lake Superior several years ago.  I found a Lake Superior agate and have been hooked ever since.   While some of these were bought at stores, I have more that I actually found myself.  I keep them in a pretty bowl and I love to admire the colors.

Bower's Harbor

A fall capture of Bower's Harbor which is a part of the western Grand Traverse Bay.  Taken from the southwest side of Old Mission Peninsula.

The row of trees separates two fields.  I thought it made for an interesting perspective.

Days of Old

I love to take pictures of old places like this.  I always wonder, what was the family like that lived there?  What kinds of things did they like to do?  You can almost close your eyes and imagine a Little House On the Prairie scenario, back when life was so much more simple.

Monarch Caterpillar

I love searching for and capturing shots of monarch caterpillars.  They are actually quite easy to find as they only feed on the milkweed plant.  I just wish the adult monarchs were just as easy to capture...

I have a small bunch of these growing near my birch trees in my front yard.  They are always the first flowers of the season to bloom in my yard.  They are tiny and frail, but so pretty.

Snake In The Grass

On a recent walk with my husband, we came across this little guy.  He was not easy to capture, but I managed to get him with his tongue out.  Isn't he cute?

Flaming Keyhole

There is an old dump near my grandmother's house. On Easter Sunday, my son and I took a walk back there to look around. Saw this on an old Ford truck that had been abandoned.

Snow Fence

Captured this image, during the last snow fall of the season, from an old piece of fencing that my husband has out in his scrap pile.

A couple of weeks ago, we went out to play on our snowmobiles.

Here's Brenden with his helmet on.

And here he is jumping over a snow bank.

What Is It?

Playing around with the macro feature, what do you think this is?

Cold Apple Tree

I am amazed at how many apples were still hanging on this tree.
