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
