Judge Morris BackYard Lily Pond



The dogs and I took a walk early in the morning over the weekend on a path I hadn't yet ventured this year.  It's part of the White Clay Creek park system, but is typically over wrought with mountain bikers...making the walk highly unpleasant for me, because my sweet little Oliver becomes an almighty devil dog!

But usually early in the morning is safe.
And cool enough to tolerate.

I noticed some yellow reflecting off some water, so we wandered down across the field and found the most wonderful and GIANT Lily Pad flowers.

As we approached, we must have upset the amphibious wild life, because a GIANT TOAD noise emitted from somewhere among the beautiful sight.  It actually startled and frightened Layla a bit.  It really was the loudest toad sound I had ever heard...followed by a very loud splash.

I had my Widelux camera with me, because I have been experimenting with it.  The shot above does not adequately capture the beauty of the pond, but you can get an of the vastness and size of the flowers.

So, if you live in the area and you haven't had an opportunity to visit Judge Morris Estate, put it on your list.  You'll be glad you did!  We were (and I'm going back with my digital camera so you can get a better picture of the GIANT YELLOW flowers!)

For You My Friend

Dang is it ever hot, right?
Well, I spend some time crafting indoors close to the air conditioner vents.
And this little box is what I came up with.  Along with the gift inside!

Decorated and the final touch...that wonderful Pinque Peacock Stick Pin.

It matched PERFECTLY.
Anyway, hope you like it.
My friend did (and she didn't assault the box when I gave it to her!)
Have a super Saturday.
Drink lots of water....cuz if you spend anytime outdoors, it just evaporates right out of you!

Spooky Eyeballs

Hello, everyone.  Over the weekend, I made this 12 x 12 inch printable page.  I will add another version later this week, that will have smaller and more numerous eyeballs!

To save at the original version size, click on the image and then click again to zoom in.  Then you can save and print it!

Halloween Scrapbooking Sheets

I created these this morning....just in time for making a few treats before the spooks come calling tomorrow night!
Enjoy.
