The little barn owl - well, not so little, really - doesn't have a mate. At least, not one that I saw. The red-shouldered hawks have nested in the same tree for several years according to a neighbor. Last year, they had 4 chicks. We're anxious to see how many they produce this season. And these birds are NOT shy. They're definitely used to people being around in the yard -- which made it really nice for taking photos of them!

This kitty is a frequent visitor at the puddle. He has the most amazing eyes.... I know I've not been around lately. We've had a lot going on. We bought a house in sunny Texas this summer, and we'll be moving into it late next year. In the meantime, we're doing some work there, and trying to get everything tied up, tidied up, and ready to sell here in Ohio. Between work and the trips to TX to get the house ready, I've been meeting myself coming and going. Where do you guys find the energy to keep up with your busy lives, anyway? While I haven't managed a page in forever, I do stop to peek at all of yours at least once a week, and I must say, you've all been turning out some gorgeous pages!! Keep up the good work! Hopefully, things will slow down enough to allow me an occasional foray of my own this winter.....

I wish I could tell you which one this is, but I'm afraid I've played so much I've lost track of what I did. I do know I left the fresco layer off because it made the picture too dark, and I used chalk and charcoal instead of charcoal, but darned if I know what else I did. Journaling reads: &quot;My neighbor from across the street stopped over to admire my new flower beds this morning. He noticed that I had my camera in my hand and asked if that’s what I did. I told him it was only a hobby, and we talked a little more. Finally, he said”Why don’t you come over and see my lily? It bloomed all bright and yellow this morning,” And so I did. And while I was there, he told me how the little pond had been for his wife, Peggy. She ‘d had terminal cancer, and he’d built it for her because she liked to sit by the one at the hospice so much. They’d put in several koi, and she’d named each of them. Peggy died about this time last year, and he couldn’t bring himself to get rid of the pond or the koi, because, well, they’re sort of like children now. And they bring him fond memories of Peggy, whom he’d loved deeply and still misses. And so this is....&quot; for Peggy.

If I could get away with planting it in my flowerbeds, I would. It just sings of summer, and it always blooms at the same time as the Queen Anne's lace, turning the landscape into a blue and white reflection of the blue skies and fluffy white clouds of summer days. I'm sure most of you have heard of chicory in coffee, but did you know that it's often added to the forage for cattle because it helps prevent intestinal parasites? I don't think that would entice me to take it along on a trip to foreign lands, but it's an interesting reminder that many plants were used for medicines long before pharmaceutical companies came along.

Like the project itself, the page was taking me forever to complete. This page will be part of this spread: [IMG][/IMG] And the story behind the page is this: About November last year, I decided to have the 15 ft. high hedge taken out of my &quot;back&quot; yard, thus allowing sunlight to actually reach my back deck - which had been growing moss for so long it was in dire need of replacement before someone fell through it. So, I bit the bullet and opted for a new back deck. With vinyl railings that don't have to be painted or stained. And I set about to find a contractor who could build it for me. The one I chose does custom decks for several of the custom home builders in town, and his work is awesome, so I knew right away he was my man. And I liked the result so well, I decided to do the front porch deck to match. And there's the first hitch. It was a mild winter with hardly any snow. Builders worked all winter. My decks finally got started in February, and the front one in March. Come spring, (second hitch) my landscaper was running in circles trying to keep up with all the work he had, and my walks didn't get framed until late May. I arrived home from a visit in TX on June 4 to find it raining cats and dogs, my lawn torn up, walks partially framed, no concrete due to the weather, and Diesel arriving that evening to spend the weekend and track in mud on my carpet - which he did with amazing alacrity. 2 long weeks later, I was still waiting for concrete to be poured since my landscaper also works for the mobile home park where I live, and they had him busy pouring foundations for new homes. So you can imagine my joy when I came home from work last week to find concrete had been poured!! And Tuesday, my landscaper was back to put in my flower beds!!! My front porch is no longer home to all those containers of plants for my beds. Now, if I can just get the lawn re-seeded and grass growing, I will at last be finished for a while.

Since they nest on the ground, and the lawn mowers have been around several times already, I was surprised to see that the little one wasn't harmed by them. It doesn't seem ready to fly yet, but it can certainly run! This will be part of this spread in my album.

And I'm a little concerned that the recent efforts by the city to &quot;beautify&quot; it and make it an official city park are going to destroy the beauty it now possesses. That said, it has occurred to me that I should, perhaps, make an album of the photos I have of it as it now exists. This may end up being the titile page.

[IMG][/IMG] These butterflies are not normally seen around here quite this early in the year, but on Sunday this week, they were all over that lilac bush along with a large group of Red Admiral butterflies.

Lots of pretty flowers, LOTS of people, not so many really good photo ops, but did catch this in front of a window. If you're looking for that green diamond paper, it's a blend between Katie's Classic cardstock - intimacy (the dark mauve one) and the diamond patterned paper from the Ashbury kit. Diamond paper on top, blend mode set to difference. And the Ashbury kit was discontinued. The ribbon was also from this kit. :( Katie Pertiet [u][b][url=]Classic Cardstock: Intricacy Paper Pack[/url][/b][/u] [u][b][url=]In Stitches Circles No. 1[/url][/b][/u]<br /><br />17 comments Sat, 18 Feb 2012 18:51:04 +0000 Everyday love <a href=";title=everyday-love&amp;cat=500"><img class="imgborder" title="everyday_love.jpg" border="0" src="" alt="everyday_love.jpg" /></a><br /><br />by: b2halter<br /><br />Description}: WOW!!

They're as common as dirt in Ohio, so you'd think they'd be easy to photograph. Unfortunately, they're a lot like toddlers. They can't seem to sit still for 2 seconds running. Just as you get one in focus and lined up for a shot, he's off to another branch, and you have to start all over again. I have more pictures of branches where the chickadee WAS than I have of the chickadee. This was a passable shot, but not tack sharp. They ARE cute little things. And Lynn's Midwinter kit had the perfect gray for the background!!

I PROMISE I'll get some comments done today since today and tomorrow I'm off (thanks to a broken washing machine). I sneaked off this morning with the camera to grab a Starbucks and a few photos. Found this little guy at the puddle. I've heard them all along, but could never catch a glimpse of them. This morning, he acted like he had an appointment for a photo shoot, so I obliged. Isn't he cute? His little honey stayed in the grass and pretty much out of shooting range. Really weird January this year!! Temps from 15 F to 60 F. My daffodils are 4 inches high already, and the tree across the street is thinking seriously about bursting its buds. I'm not complaining about the warm, though!! And I LOVE this sunshine!

And I know winter is lurking back there somewhere, but I can't really say that I'm not just thrilled with all the blue skies, green grass, and sunny days we've been having so far! I'm lovin' it!! Snow in the forecast for this evening, but not too much and it won't last too long (yea!). Know the kids want snow days, but they just make getting to and from work miserable.

With half of Ohio migrating to Florida right after the holidays, and everyone's insurance deductible about to run out, they all want their surgery sometime before the end of the month. Which leads to very little time for anything else. So now that I'm the only one at home, the tree has shrunken, I no longer hang all 203 Santa ornaments, and life goes on. But I do miss the big tree sometimes, I just don't miss the hassle of having to put it up and take it down. I see the typo. So much for spell check.

She's usually really shy and flies away at the drop of a hat, but today she stayed a few minutes for me. I know everyone likes the male because he's such a bright bird and easy to spot, but I think the little female is really pretty, too.

A few minutes to catch my breath and do a little scrap therapy.... After our first snow (about 1/2 inch that melted almost as fast as it fell - which is fine with me) this week, today dawned bright and sunny and crisp. And now that the trees are bare, the birds are primarily feeding on wildflower seeds, like these little goldfinches. Unlike most birds, goldfinches molt twice a year and have distinctive spring/summer and fall/winter plummage. These two are males decked out in their winter finest.

He's just big, and slobbery. But some folks are afraid of him, and I guess that's OK. At least they think twice before approaching. I couldn't wait to play with Cassie's new tutorial!! And I think if you look at the results we've all gotten, you'll see a fair spread of possibilities. I added 2 extra layers of watery brushes and then played with blending modes a little bit.

It would be easier if the editor worked so we could underline, or print in bold type or Italics, but about all we have to add dimension to a comment are those darned exclamation marks!!!!! I feel like I'm wearing that key out. And I find myself using the same superlatives over and over until I feel like a broken record. So I've written my favorites down on this chart. Now, I'll just be able to jot &quot;A,B,C&quot; and you'll know exactly what I mean, right? Oops! Thank you, Susan!! I'll correct the typo on my copy!

Well, I can see why Agnes does one of these every night. This is completely addictive!! I can picture a whole series of these printed on watercolor paper and framed as miniatures, then grouped on a wall or a mantle. Such fun!! I used the same online tutorial (I think) that Esther and Anke used. There are LOTS of choices. Which you use depends on your preference and the outcome will depend on your choice of photo, the method you choose, and how you tinker with the settings. (I always have to tinker. Can't leave anything alone.) It's a great way to find out how PS works and have fun in the process. And I'd just bet we could get Cassie to do a tutorial for PS and PSE, too.

I love the way they stick together. I love the way they always harken spring, and whisper farewell to summer. I love that they seem reluctant to leave in the fall.

There must have been a waxwing convention yesterday morning at sunrise. There were over 50 birds in this tree. Ultimately, the text will appear on the right hand page. I love frames.
