creatures that live in my back yard

Another beautiful day here in Arizona.  I took a walk through the park which was packed with people. All of the neighbors were out working on their yard, so that inspired me to start raking up the mess in the back yard. We had some big winds last week and it knocked a couple hundred oranges off the trees. So I had a mess to clean.  Decided to take a few pics of the creatures that live back there as long as I was there :)

The Scent of Spring

The orange blossoms are bursting and it smells intoxicating outside! I love this time of the year :)

Photo's From Todays Walk

So, I don't always feel like I have much to say in my blog, so I've decided to try to at least up load pictures a few times a week. So these are my photo's from my walk today. This tree was so beautiful! Spring is here!

In summer these flowers are a vibrant fuchsia. In winter, they are creamy browns, and nearly see through as they die off. I think they are just as beautiful in their death as their life.

Lawn Ornaments

I'm sure there is a clever caption that could go with this..something about how real that  lawn ornament looks, or how annoyed the little stone kitty looks...but all I can think of is.. "awe".

February Challenge Piece completed

Hi everyone!

Just wanted to share the necklace I made for the local bead store challenge here in Arizona. It's not a win or lose challenge, we all just get together, the shop provides the kit at half the cost, and each month we come back to get a new kit, and show eachother what we made the prior month. I really love how this one turned out. I think this one is going into my own jewelry box :)

Hope everyone is well. I've hardly been been able to pull myself from the tv today so I've accomplished almost nothing. All of thee natural disasters, so very very sad. Just heart breaking, not to mention humbling when you realize how small we are and powerless when it comes to mother nature.I finally forced myself to get out and take a walk.

 The weather was amazing today! Around 81 Degrees, and Just beautiful :) Funny just a few weeks ago it was 30 degrees. The beautiful weather makes me want to make a floral summery piece.
