I'd forgotten how pretty blue skies were....


Yes that's right, we had a nice sunny day for the first part of the day. It's a real shame you cant see how pretty it really is as the simply does NOT do it justice. The pic was snapped aiming along the back corner of the property. Looking the other way you could see that it's trying to get bleah on us again but since I've been bitchin soooo much about the rain, I figured ya'll would rather hear about the sun. WHOOT! Free Vitamin D. I wish hubby would get me a nice rocker to put on the porch on days like this so I have someplace to sit and enjoy the day. All we got are those cheap-ass plastic ones that I wouldnt DARE put my fat butt in for the fear of it breaking.

It was so nice out today that while I was out to get the mail (which is something I've taken to doing just to say I got ~some~ exercise in), I saw a little butterfly out catching some of that free Vitamin D too. We dont get too many butterflies in our area and fewer still sit around long enough for me to haul my butt into the house, grab the camera anad come back out to get its picture. Now if I could get that pretty black and yellow that I saw a week or so ago to come back....


I also noticed a not so savory development on my property due to all the damn rain. In the 3 years or so we've been in this house, not once have we had mushrooms. They were rather extensive too. *Bleah* Im gonna have to have my hubby go to Loews and see if there's something we can do to get rid of them (while he's there maybe he'll buy me that rocker too...yeah right).

While I was out I figured I'd get a picture of that stupid tree that's been giving my allergies the fits. Everyone knows I complain when the magnolias bloom (gardenias do the same...even burning a gardenia scented candle is enough to clog the sinuses). However, this year this tree went in bloom right on the heels of the magnolias so there was no real break. As much as I'd love to just chop it down and be rid of it, it wouldnt help any. Why?
Because this is what is right across the street on no fewer than 3 properties. So basically cutting mine down wont fix the problem. The only thing that helps is the rain because it washes the pollen out of the air...but then you get the mold spores that trigger allergies too and those beautiful lawn fungi...

Those are some nice pics.

Photos of blue skies never come out quite right, do they? I've tried loads of times, and the photo NEVER does the sky any justice. It's not just skies either, some stuff is so hard to get a good shot of.

Ive noticed that. Try as I might there are definitely SOME things I cant get a decent shot of. My hubby's better at it than me but I dont think even he can capture the blue skies properly. My SIL probably could...but she does alot in post-production to correct the errors of the camera.

Welcome to my bloghome Tori. Nice to meet you.

I feel for you and your allergies. I have some seasonal allergies that aren't that bad, so I've never actually been tested to find out what I'm allergic to. I'm pretty sure I'm allergic to grass, but anything else is guesswork.

The trees are pretty when they're blooming though. Not that it helps you any, lol.

Don't feel bad, my Dad has been doing photography courses for as long as I can remember, and he still can't get things like skies to look quite right. Well, not without one of his special filter thingys. I dabble in it, but I can't be bothered with the filters. I mean, I've had my camera for almost a year now, and I still don't know what half of the settings do. LOL!

By the way, thanks for the welcome. I posted on your blog before. When you had your old one. When I started checking blogs properly again, I saw you posting on some of the ones I visit, and recognised the name, so I thought I'd come find your blog again.
