Scavenger Hunt Sunday 04.07.13

Hello!  We are finally seeing signs of spring around here.  Sunshine and warmer temps.  Although it is still pretty cold at night.  Flowers and trees are beginning to awaken from their hibernation.  The kids are able to spend more time outside without being all bundled up.  I love it!

This week's Scavenger Hunt items are Outside, Chatterbox, Comfort, In the kitchen, and Trees.  And here are my interpretations ...

Honey and I were walking around outside looking for signs of spring.  Well, I was.  She was probably looking for a squirrel to chase.  :)  I found some buds on the lilac bushes.  Yay!  I textured this with a photo I took of the seaweed in our neighbor's pond.  I turned the opacity down quite a bit.  If you are a texture junkie like I am and would like to download the photo, you can do so from my Flickr account.  Just right click on the photo, choose a size to view and once it takes you to that view, you can download.  I just ask that you give proper credit when you use it.  Thanks!  Here's the link:  Seaweed texture

This House Finch was singing outside my window.  Not while I was taking his picture, of course.  :)

Alex wasn't feeling well on Tuesday so he stayed home and spent the day in his jammies.  He looked pretty comfortable while watching a movie.

In this case, in the freezer in my kitchen.  You just never know what you might find some days.  Apparently Alex was upset because we didn't have any frozen GoGurt, so he decided to make his own.  :)

Our trees are still pretty bare but the blue sky yesterday was gorgeous.  Barely a cloud in the sky!  We're all so glad to be able to get outside more!

Well, that's it for me.  Hope you have a great week!

What a great set! I too am enjoying the signs of spring and I loved your lilac buds. Your chatterbox shot is wonderful as well.

Great set. That shot of the Lilac Buds is fabulous.
Beautiful shot of the red bird too.

Your lilac bud and house finch pictures are stunning! Perfect texture for the lilac and I love the details you captured on the finch.
