I got some great photos this past weekend down at the cabin. These photos are all straight out of the camera........I didn't texture or alter them. I loved the way these berries were hanging and I think they look like an outdoor chandelier...what do you think?
Love how these flowers are so dainty and so dreamy.

I took many shots of this wonderful daisy. I like how this turned out.

some raspberries from the cabin.

They were yummy...some not quite ready yet as you can see in the picture the various stages they were in. They were also small this year as a result of our lack of rain ....yet still yummy. Jam anyone? I lined them up on the picnic table for a photo before eating!

cardinal nest

We were trimming hedges earlier this week and this is what we unearthed....we couldn't believe it and felt so bad that we exposed it. I had to get on the step ladder to take this picture. Its a cardinal nest with 5 eggs in it....aren't they wonderful. Mama was making all sorts of noise trying to get us away while we were cleaning up the branches.. Here she is that night......guarding her eggs. Unfortunately she did abandon the nest......we feel so bad but had no idea until after the hedge trimmer had made its mark. Last year they nested in our evergreen tree right above the deck. I hope they come back next year to nest. They eat over at the neighbors and they take a bath in my birdbath and this is the second year they have nested at our house. Next year.......we will watch their behavior a little close before we start trimming the hedges.
Talk about the ultimate recyclers......I have no idea where they got the plastic bag and paper.
