“To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them.” — Elliott Erwitt

I'll bet you think this is breakfast....nope, I forgot to post dinner. Another one of those comfort food yummies. Sauteed onions, mushrooms and a fresh tomato...topped with eggs and finished with cheese at the last minute. The kitchen smelled great for hours.

Grey....no rain....no sheets. I was chilly until the stall cleaning started and I was moving around. Put the horses in the back pasture as I alternate regularly.
The pups were in the back yard for awhile. Gucci can't wait to get there so she can look for chipmunks.
Did a little laundry...had lunch and then the dogs and I went down to Apple Creek Farm so I could mow the lawn. They are very good about hanging out in the car. When I finished, they were able to go run around the orchard.
The trees are loaded with blossoms now.

Got home about 4:30 and started getting dinner together. Picked some new tulips for the table.

Finally....the sun came out! Around 6pm.
The light forced me to pick up my camera.

It's not quite warm enough to start eating on the back porch.
Today the weeping crab apple tree blossoms started to open. The sun is supposed to be out tomorrow (but chilly) so we shall see if they really pop.
I can't tell you how much I love this kind of light. Everything looks so much better.

Put the horses in around 7:30. This time slot seems to work well for me, until it gets hot and they can stay out a lot longer.

Headed back to the house a little before 8.

Check out that moon....

Night all.


  1. Love the moon and the sky!

  2. Lori - I love light and the apple blossoms! And the moon and the sky and almost everything else about this time of year. I can feel my energy rebuilding with every tulip and lilac blossom. You live in such a magical place.

  3. Your yard is so green and beautiful. Love the apple blossoms. What a treat to see!
