Saturday Critters ~ 20 ~

A Little Blue Heron at The Smithsonian National Zoo




I didn't take these pictures, the hubs did.
It was about 150 degrees in the bird house, I was wilting.
I handed the camera off...with instructions...
he followed them to the letter,
he takes his job seriously.
 
When I viewed these on the camera screen, I thought they were duds.
But when I viewed them on the computer screen,
it was love at first sight.
 
There is something about the pictures,
perhaps it is because Chuck took them, I just love them.

I am super excited to be joining in with Eileen over at
for Saturday Critters.
Stop by and consider joining in, any critter will do!!

The Cherry Blossom Parade

On the final day of The Cherry Blossom Festival, they have a parade!
Did someone say parade, oohhhhh that's my favorite.
The hubs, not so much, but he was so happy to arrange for a special car,
to take us right to the area and pick us up afterward,
only a few blocks away.
 
Good thing we had our own "chariot", the parade area was crowded...
and when I say crowded,
you have never seen a crowd like this.
 
But....I loved it.
Two hours of amazing colors, music, funny and happy peeps.
 
Did I take a lot of pictures,
you bet I did.
Sit back, relax and enjoy...it was such a happy parade.






























The End!!
Wasn't that a beautiful parade??

Good Fences ~ Edition 4 ~

I was more then overjoyed when I found this carousel in Washington.
Situated on the Potomac River,
it was surrounded by a beautiful white fence.
Score...
I need fences and I love carousels!!
 
Pictures only...but once again,
given the choice, which of these beauties would you choose for your ride?!
For me it was a tad difficult...but I choose the hummingbird!
 












I saved my ride for last...
I have never seen a hummingbird on a carousel,
and she would be my pick, for sure!!
 
What would you ride??

I am super excited to be sharing my colorful carousel
with it's pretty white fence with 
for Good Fences.
Stop by and consider joining in the fun, any fence or gate will do!!

April Showers...

 bring snow plowers!!
That's right kids, last night The Jersey Shore got more snow.
 
Yesterday I was outside picking daffodils from my garden.
Two vases, filled right to the brim.

 When I woke up this morning, "it" was melting, but "it" was there!!

 
The banging of hammers at the house next door woke us early...
the house was freezing.
 
Chuck said, "who" turned off the heat??
"Who" was the operative word here because of course it was me.
But in my defense, I never turned off the heat,
I had to use the air conditioning yesterday, because it was so hot.
Technically, I turned off the air conditioning.
 
You get my drift??
