This bed of Creeping Phlox is in our backyard flower garden.  Notice how it is creeping in between the stones.

Frosty Backyard


A couple weeks ago we had a frost that lightly painted the back yard.  As you can see the sun was coming up so it did not last long.

Small Fir tree


This small Fir Tree was transplanted to its present place, in our back garden, last year.  It has grown a bit and has an excellent formation.

Where’s the Male American Gold Finch?


Well, I’ll admit my focus here wasn’t the best.  But, since it’s a fun shot I’ll not worry much about it – this time.  Hint:  if you enlarge you’ll see the part of him I could capture … two yellow sides with a black stripe down the center.  He’s well hidden.
