and it's April!

April arrived with snow, and a little Hummingbird showed up the last week of March!

They usually don't show up until April 15th....must be global warming...?

These are just a few random shots from the Vivitar Ultra Wide and Slim.  I really enjoy using this camera. It fits in my pocket and clicks happily at things I point it at. Some of the things I point it at I don't that big deer head in a pasture I saw while driving down an old farm road in Texas.

  2. That's amazing that you got a hummingbird way up there. I guess we better get the feeder out. Our little south-facing garden is actually producing for us. We had some chard from it tonight, and have mostly harvested the first round of lettuce. The zucchini is coming along and there are a couple of cherry tomatoes.

    1. Wow, veggies from your garden already! I just planted a strawberry last week and some potatoes. It will be awhile before my first harvest...big or small!
      Thanks for stopping by.
