Lookin' Better

It's Friday, thank goodness.

My phlox are blooming,
emitting their sweet smells.

I love the soft pink of the Prairie Smoke
set against the flaming pink phlox.

And now, for all of you
that have comforted me
when I have presented my
lame pictures of birds...


I am happy to show you my
awesome bird photo.

TaDa!







Gotcha!  he he!


Here's the real deal...


Not the greatest bird photo ever...
but at least I didn't have to point it out
with Picnik!

Good Morning~! Love the pictures of the flowers.. Pink is so refreshing and calming. I'll bet your hummingbirds like to come to them.
Bird Shots~? So cute.. Love the goldfinches.. They are so bright in the summer. Good to see you are giving them water. So important on these hot days of summer.
Have a Blessed Tiggeriffic Day~! ta ta for now from Iowa:)

Great shot of the male gold finch!!
Birds are hard to take a photo of. I just recently captured my best hummingbird shot ever in about 3 years of trying.

Love the phlox! I, too, have that blooming. It reminds me of my Mom's yard from years ago.

Beautiful little goldfinch. A hummingbird was visiting the butterfly bush at our bedroom window earlier, but I wasn't quick enough to get a picture!
