Some radom pics with my new camera....

Are ya sick of me yet?...if not here are some more pics taken with my new camera...
We're having a super year with our veggie garden....our pumpkin/gourd patch is on the other side of the yard; which you can't see...My egg gourds, birdhouse gourds, apple gourds and sweet annie are all doing great...I don't seem to have very many pumpkins despite all the blossoms...I think I may need to add lime to the soil next year??? I'll have to take a pic of this garden later....Click on the pic for a better view.

picked a ton of veggies today...many for Salsa~yellow and green peppers, jalepenos, tomatoes and onions.... Yummy... We were truly blessed with a great harvest this year even though DH didn't put any cow or horse poop in the garden!! :) (yes I know...gross but ya gotta remember that I'm a nurse after all...we can do anything-esp eat while standing up and talk about gross stuff)!

Here's a of the smaller ones....just look at his face...and his wings are so delicate. Click on the pic for a closer look of this amazing lil' creature! Can you tell I'm loving my new camera?

A couple of yellow finches eating sunflower seeds to their hearts content...this is the only way I was able to get a shot of them...they are soooo fast!! Can you see both of them? Click to zoom!

Well I'm off to see what else I can find to photograph....:)

  11. What a wonderful garden! Girl, consider yourselves fortunate! So many people didn't have the abundance like you because of the crazy weather all over the place. Glad yours turned out so well and you are enjoying the harvest, that's wonderful!
