Yellow.


Yellow
When I think of yellow...several descriptors come to mind. 
Warm. Bright. Cheerful. Animated. 


Reminds me of someone I know.  :D

Olive Green.


We've been into Pistachios this week. 


I wasn't particularly looking for this week's color 
while enjoying my little snack. 






So ... I was quite pleased when I realized
 the pistachios were a good match for Olive Green.

Four Baby Birdies Sittin' In a Tree.

We are so happy Mama Robin felt the tree
 directly outside our dining room window was  
a suitable spot to build her nest. 


We couldn't have asked for a better 
observation spot. At first, she would fly away 
if any one of us approached the window, making 
it quite difficult to get a good picture of her sitting
on her eggs. 






Though now, she must be feeling a bit more 
comfortable with our curiousity. She will stay
if we approach slowly, but she
 doesn't move a muscle and keeps 
a watchful eye on us.


The eggs hatched about 1-2 weeks ago. It's been 
amazing watching them grow.
 They went from looking nothing like a bird at all
to these cute, fuzzy creatures. 





I thought the fuzz on these sweet baby robins
in the photo above was a great match for  
timberwolf, this week's color on Project 64. 
Head on over and check out some of 
 other great finds!

These photos were taken just after Mama fed them. 
I've tried to capture them with their little mouths open, 
but have been unsuccessful to this point.


Mama might not know it, but she's got 
four extra sets of eyes watching to 
make sure her babies stay safe in their nest.

Salmon Scooter.


Well, I didn't think I'd make it for this week's
 color challenge with Project 64. It was 
the girls' last week of school and let me tell you, 
it was a crazy, busy week.

I had all but given up on searching for salmon, when yesterday at a Vespa dealership, my best friend
 pointed out this cute "salmon-colored" scooter! 



All my pictures this week are SOOC 
(straight-out-of-camera) shots,
no time for editing!! 


 My best friend entered a Vespa contest
and unbelievably...she won! 
I photographed her winning picture, so 
naturally I had to be there to take pictures
as she picked it up!              


It was the last day of school, so it was great that 
the girls could all share in the fun!

Horsies.


My youngest daughter is an animal-lover, 
especially of horses. 
So, about 1-1/2 years ago, she started riding lessons. 
She LOVES it. 




She loves every thing about it. 




I am also enjoying it. I have found I look forward to the time
at the farm. It's beautiful and peaceful. The 
perfect place to sit back and relax for an hour.





 But I most enjoy watching my little girl do what she loves. 







Have a terrific weekend!!
