I've attacked another overgrown weedy flower bed and got chased inside by a rain shower and everything is wet. Grrrr..... I could use some cheering.

Ah well, it could be raining bullets and missiles and we could be under attack. I just need to get a grip.   I'm taking a deep breath...
It's just that I had planned  digging this bed  for so long... I worked on it all afternoon  yesterday except shot little breaks  to rest my back. I knew that it was going to be a big job.         I shouldn't complain, that flower bed was planted it in  the spring of 1999. I had no idea it had been that long. Yes, I had to look it up in my scrapbook. It coincided with a friend 's death, actually a year before his death.

I'll have pictures on my next post.
I figured how to take off my stabilizer lens and put my zoom lens on  after reading the instructions in my little camera book. It was easier than I thought.  I took a few shots, nothing interesting to photograph but I only wanted to see how far I could take a picture.

This is a picture of a crow's nest  in a very tall tree by the side of the river in line with my bedroom. The tree is loosing it's leaves and looks like it's dying.

Not a nice subject either  but again this is a tall tree way over in my son's yard and some kind of worm nest at the top. The picture was taken from my back yard...

This is the Princess Margaret Bridge in Fredericton. It's almost 5 miles from my house as the crow flies so I'm pretty impressed. The white that you see is a canvas covering the bridge as they work repairing the bridge. From our place we can only see the middle of the bridge. It was very windy as I was trying to keep steady and I had to lean against a tree so I wouldn't fall down the the steep incline.

That's it for today. Oh yeah, I got another little baby girl calf yesterday afternoon. She's so small.

I love you all, have a great day.  JB


  1. Tomorrow is another day, put your feet up, and enjoy a hot cup of tea. I know this must be hard for you as you are a whirl wind! Nice lens you've got there, I' still trying to figure my Canon out, tis a wee bit frustrating at times. It is raining here in Maine too!Hugs, Julie.

  2. Now I want a new camera! It looks great. sorry the rain spoiled your flower garden plans but as julie said put up your feet and enjoy the time off.

  3. It's been so long since I've used my camera. It's wet here too - blah. And the trees are really late turning, everything is still green. Seems strange to me

  4. I'm having lens envy! Great shots. Looks like you have mastered it already! It's raining here too and we've needed it. The grass is finally green again!

  5. A crow's nest?! indeed... I don't recall ever seeing a crow's nest... oooo great lens --- what great shots! ... and what fun you'll be having shooting a this or a that.

    Another little girl calf... wow... well? thatsa lotta calves.

    It's foggy here on the central coast of Oregon.... I'm about to be kicked out of the laundromat with the free wifi! I did laundry! yay! hate.. doing ... laundry... bah

  6. Oh no...that looks like Gypsy moths. They will devour any and all foliage.
    I love your posts! Just think: the rain loosens the roots to pull the weeds more easily! There's your slver lining! ;-)
    Have a great day!

  7. So sorry your plans for the flower beds did not work out. I can just picture you kicking the dirt on the way into the house. haha
