Backyard

Pin It!

There was a break from the cold a couple of weeks ago, and I ventured outside to practice with our camera. (And yes, "cold" is a relative term when you live in California.) Here are some snippets from our tiny backyard.
Someone clearly made a home of my rusty old bike...

I am so ready for Spring and Summer to arrive!
Here's to backyard BBQ's, drive-in movies, bike rides, beach campfires,
popsicles, tan skin, sleeping with the window open,
flip-flops, summer dresses
and baseball games.

Beautiful pics! We live in Monterey and I am getting sad that as everyone moves into spring and summer, our weather will continue to be 62 and partly sunny. Boo!

I begged my husband for a fancy camera for xmas 2010 and I LOVE it, but I really haven't learned enough about it. I am dying to take some photography classes!

My dear,
I found your blog by chance, while peeking others and I decided to check it out! I’m glad I did it, because I am really delighted with yours. It's beautiful, well structured, interesting… and it has completely got me hooked. I think we're going to get along just fine! ;) I’m your new follower and I’d be very pleased if you like my blog enough to follow it as well!
I wish you lots of success and will surely come back often
kisses
