We took a trip up to our place in New Hampshire this month and enjoyed the deep snow everywhere. One of our side ventures took us on a scenic route through eastern Vermont. I just had to stop the car for these two that came up to the fence as I got out of the car with my camera. It was snowing and I felt sorry for them even though I was freezing; my chill was only temporary and theirs was not. This horse and donkey made me feel so lucky to see and talk to them for a minute. Animals are just so awesome.
As fall is almost to it's end, I think of this fella and hope he makes it through the cold rough winter up in New Hampshire. This black bear comes though our yard every summer. He was actually a bad boy this year helping himself to the tiny bit of suet left in the feeder and ripping it down off the side of the cabin. We deserved it, since we forgot to take the feeder in, however, did he have to run off with it deep in the woods so we could not find it? I guess it is a small price to pay for the privilege of photographing him. Sleep well my friend!
Having a nice visit back home again to Texas and driving lots of miles and miles and miles to find the best wildflower scenery. This was taken south of San Antonio, close to Poteet. Poteet's strawberry festival will be in full swing the 2nd weekend in April which is a lot of fun! Be sure to eat a bite from the Cooling Station Grill on Rte. 16... little yellow building with gorditas and burgers to die for and lemonade that is just right. Another good spot over there is the Poteet Country Winery at 400 Tank Hollow Rd. Just giving you info. as my friends and I found it by accident and none of us drink. We were there for the pictures of the many windmills on Dusty's place. You can find more of my photos on my Facebook Lyn Scott Photography page.
We moved to North Carolina a year ago, and I have enjoyed watching the squirrels and some new breeds of birds that I have not seen in Texas. We did have the cardinals in San Antonio, however, the dog that lives in our home there scares most little creatures of any type. I have been photographing more birds these days, since we are in the middle of farmland and not much else. Looking forward to spring flowers and a trip back home.
This kitty came in to our lives 6 months after we lost our TaiBo, another oriental shorthair. The oriental breed of cat is is beautiful, smart, fun, sociable and does not shed. We had never suffered such loss over any other animal before, well, except for a parrot, and this boy has given our lives a spark again. He has a big fluffy bed, which is now the toy box and he prefers to sleep in the coke box as he watches the birds and squirrels from our North Carolina home. I would highly recommend this breed of cat for anyone looking. Adoption is always the best first option.
I am looking forward to spring, full of bluebonnets, snapdragons, daisies, roses and the rest of those things that bloom when the sun comes out and we get a bit of rain. RAIN in Texas is the key...without it, our flowers don't do so well. It has been a cold winter here for this state, so bluebonnets got a good freeze which is healthy for them. We have not however, had much moisture which can be a problem if it doesn't hurry along. C'mon, RAIN.
I have not posted for a while since I have been moving about the country. We are getting ready for a move to North Carolina. Since it is February, I though it fitting to post this cactus with a heart shape in the middle. Happy Valentine's Day.
