A friendly Squirrel...

We were at the park this morning, and this little guy insisted on having
his picture taken. He was a very cooperative subject and stood
completely still until I was done.

Oh Christmas Tree...

We got our christmas tree this weekend. A very fun family day. The  
weather was perfect, cold but sunny. I wasn't much help picking the
tree but the family picked a good one, probably one of the nicest
we've had. A new tradition, I think. Then, it was off to Starbuck's
to warm up.

I've been having some fun with Hydrangeas lately, and trying
some new editing techniques. I'm pretty excited about the
 results. Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers, and these
white ones are incredible.

Mountain Ash...

We planted this Mountain Ash tree in our yard, hoping to attract Cedar
 Waxwings. Cedar Waxwings are one of my favorite songbirds. This
particular Mountain Ash has pink berries, instead of the usual orange
berries, which I thought would be very pretty. Birds don't seem to be very
 attracted, though. Robins don't even eat them. A flock of Cedar Waxwings
stopped by one fall, but I haven't seen any in our yard since then.
 It is a beautiful tree though, especially in the fall.
