Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments and concern for our daughter and her friend, I can't tell you how much I appreciate it, and so do they! Our daughter and "S" continue to be sore, but both are doing well.
Today was absolutely gorgeous here, we threw open the windows and doors to let the warm breezes and the sounds of peeping frogs and waves fill the air. I always know it's getting to be springtime when the peepers start making a racket! I just hope they haven't come alive too soon before the winter is truly over.
The other evening Mr. Tide took the camera out for a spin and captured some swans along with their cygnets coming in for a landing on our creek. He took all of the photos in this post, hence the MT Images watermark for "Mr. Tide"...I'm sure he would have picked a cooler name, but hey it's my blog.
They really are such beautiful birds and we are so lucky to have them grace us with their presence each winter, if only for a few months.
I hope they will always find a soft place to land here as we would miss them terribly if they didn't show up year after year.
This weekend we will be getting our yard in order...weeding, pruning, and starting our veggie garden project. We've decided to create some raised beds this year so that we can grow more of our own organic vegetables, something we've been wanting to do since we moved in.
Our neighbor had her whole yard tidied up yesterday so we need to get going so that we can keep up the the Joneses if you know what I mean! We have a long way to go before our yard even begins to one up hers though, hers is always lovely and immaculate.
But enough about our neighborly yard envy, I need to announce the winner of my latest Giveaway. Mr. Tide was my random number generator, and the number he muttered while playing Battlefield 3 was #10, which belongs to Deserae who said..."Gosh, They are all just gorgeous.... I really love all three.... but if I have to pick a favorite I will pick set number 2!
Please send me an email with your mailing address and I will get the images in the mail to you right away!
Thank you all again for your kind words about my daughter and for your great opinions on my photos! I hope you all have a wonderful and productive weekend!
