I spent the weekend at Kris & Lora's and then Des Moines, IA for a family reunion, many photographs coming later but this one is from 3:30 am this morning in my back yard.
So, while I was out....
|Eye on the ball, maybe just a little slow on her swing though.|
|Breanna has a good swing, I have seen her smack the ball, but it wasn't to be at this bat.|
|Right field didn't see any action in this game, but those days are coming.|
|On base and heading to third.|
|I've wished to see deer in my yard since I moved here, and now I'm not so sure that it is a good thing.|
|Thank you LeRoy.|
|Forget Me Not|
|Lots of action here but Jordyn went for the long stretch and got the out.|
|The value of backing up another infielder.|
|And she hits well.|
|Fielding a grounder and she threw out the batter.|
|Jordyn is a ready and focused player.|
|I'm not sure what happened here, maybe a foul tip.|
It's a little confusing when you see were the ball is.
|I am amazed at the difference now that I see it side by side.|
Very bland in this photo.
|Do you see what I see? This tomato plant is a hybird, larger than a cherry, golf ball sized I was told.|
Always exciting to see the fruit set on so early.
|High Bush Cranberry.|
The flowers on this bush are so lovely.
The fruit are edible although the birds get all of mine.
I thought these were stunning and had to buy the planter.
Not easy to photograph, but really striking to see.
|I really think clover is pretty, I wish my whole yard would be clover.|
This volunteer clover is trying to take over the tomato plant's home, so I had to pull it, but not until I took it's mug shot.
|Chives are so hardy, I have two clumps of chives in my yard, both come up first before anything else and then get these pretty flowers. I think you are supposed to pull these flowers off, but why? I think they are very pretty.|
|These Pinks continue spread each year and when they are blooming, they are eye catching.|
These were here when I moved in, I've just given them some fertilizer and they do great.
|My grape made it through the winter.|
This is a concord grape vine, and I really just want the grapes for the birds,
but I think we may be a year or two away from grapes.
I'm just please it made it through the first winter.
|Once these hostas take off, this will be a nice shady grove under the maple trees.|
|I can't wait for these hostas to perk up and stand up.|
|New hostas surrounding one of the Frazier Firs that we planted last fall.|
|The Blue Spruce that we planted last fall has one dead branch but new growth on every single branch, |
so no worries about one dead branch.
|Chillin' on the deck|
