My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Signs of Spring!

My husband and I walk the community most evenings, so I have learnt to take my camera with me most of the time. When I forget it, is when I discover the most delightful things to take photos of. On one of our recent walks I noticed the huge pine trees were starting to bare their new pine cones. I took a couple photos to catch the new life that has begun. These pine cones get to be 6 to almost 8 inches long sometimes. I watched one last year that clung to the tree through high winds and rain. When it fell many months later I picked it up and brought it home because it amazed me how long it held out before falling. When I first moved here almost 3 years ago the size of the pine cones amazed me and I collected quite a few. Our oldest son moved from California to Virginia and stopped to spend a week end with us before going to Virginia. One of our granddaughters was so charmed with the pine cones, so I let her take them knowing that there would be many more.

Our property line shrubs were budding new leaves and a dainty flower as well. I had never noticed the flowers before this year.

Then we can't forget about the spectacular Japanese maple..there is a small one in our back yard that is my favorite. I watch it come to life each year and sadden when it looses its leaves in the fall. I get a beautiful and different view of it from each of my windows on the back side of my home.
My neighbor has a magnificant one in his front yard!
