I sent her outside with my camera. Take pictures of spring, I said.

This is what she came back with…… it's always fun to see what the kids choose to capture……..

Tomorrow is THE day.

Bee day.

I made sugar syrup and bee food today. We got the hives out in the yard today. I planted 5 raspberry bushes behind them and got three grapevines and 6 blackberry bushes in too. There were supposed to be five blackberries, the bonus made me smile. Then Maggie ate one. Dang dog. I think she's part goat. Always eating sticks. She did feel bad. Joe yelled at her and she sat on a huge rock in the middle of the yard sulking while I finished planting. She's a character for sure. And such a softy….

I'll be here in the morning with a giveaway from one of my lovely sponsors. It's a good one!

Wish me luck installing bee packages tomorrow afternoon. Oh my. I can't really believe it's finally the day. Eeek!

Happy weekending to you all.

xo,

  1. She took some great pictures! I need to do that with Raelee. I do have to admit the flying frog is freaky. Reminds me of the phrase “I don’t give a flying *f*” Can substitute the *f* with frog. “I don’t give a flying frog what you think” ROFL Have fun with the bees tomorrow. May your day be full of sweetness and not stings.

  2. What?!?! I love my freaking flying frog. Lol. I think it's sort of Buddhist related somehow……. I bought at an import shop going out of business in Duluth. It's the third place it's lived now. I'll laugh and think of your little "I don't give a flying frog" from now on though. Haha!

  6. The shoes! Love that photo! My daughter loved taking pictures when she was little. One time the video was on instead and its a 1/2 hour of her walking around our yard ‘taking pictures’ ( most of it is grass bumping up and down as she chats about what she sees). I cherish that video!

  7. I love this, very inspiring. Ironically, I just posted about some pictures that my son took and then I came over here to browse – and wow! On children’s books and kids with cameras, we seem to think alike:) Have a great week.
