After last week’s surprise snow storm, I think spring is here. Pictures from Lakeside Park yesterday and today. I didn’t get pictures of the 5 merganser ducks or the belted king fisher.
I have been posting a Photo of the Day (but not every day) over on Google+ for almost 3 years; but as Google is discontinuing that platform I will now bring my photos back to my own website. You can find that page in the top menu.
As our family continues to grow and as these little ones continue to grow up, it’s time for another update.

And here are pictures from our Gathering this year. Rather a small group. Why don’t we try for a summer gathering in 2019.
On Wednesday, August 22, I spied a (Monarch) caterpillar hanging from the bottom of a leaf. I’m been checking on the chrysalis regularly, hoping maybe to see the butterfly when it emerges. (I will be adding photo frequently until the chrysalis is empty and the birds have flown away — or I have, as I will be heading to California for Mina’s ninth birthday.)
Right near the chrysalis was a bird’s nest — goldfinches are raising their brood. I try hard to not disturb the birds.
