Spring Blossoms

I really needed to change up my blog page.   I have a few more things to add but it's a start.   I'm also working on macro shots of the blossoms around here.   They are sparse this year and I'm not sure why....did we have too much rain?   I have no idea, but this is the saddest I've ever seen our lilac bush.   Maybe it's getting old and just doesn't feel like celebrating anymore.   It's always been so lush, filling the air with such a wonderful fragrance, that I'm rather sad to see the lack of blossoms this year.   

Mother Nature, she's a crazy old gal.

Socializing Ella

I was at Morro Bay yesterday and was completely enjoying the weather, 75 degrees and ideal for strolling and taking photos.   Although there are usually several dogs at this beach, there always seems to be one who captures my attention.   This one caught the attention of many as she ran around barking at everyone, myself included.    Her mom said she's young and not yet used to all the people.   Poor mama, she kept chasing after her, wearing only a bikini, trying to keep her bottoms from sliding around too much.   The red-headed dog, Ella, was trying to make sure everyone knew she was large and in charge.   No Min Pin/Chihuahua mix is large, but she was definitely in charge.






I hope I see her again one day.   It will be interesting to see if her behavior has improved, although I seriously doubt it.   She is a little redhead, after all.

A Few Photos

Just a few photos I'm sharing from a very nice week.   Beautiful green hills, blue skies, pretty clouds, the ocean, and much more that I haven't yet edited.   I hope your week welcomed March with some beauty.






If you ever get a chance to visit our Central Coast, try to arrange it for this time of year.   The beauty will be a feast for your eyes.   Have a nice weekend.

Apples and Oranges

A few months ago I found a good deal on Amazon for a Vitamix.   I really really like it and have used it quite a bit.   I've done a lot ...
