Mom's weeping cherry tree is taller than her house now.
I love my Macro function. Anyone tired of close-up flower pictures?
Isabelle is the Bubble Queen. It can keep her occupied for an hour straight. That's a good thing.
And Lorelei is the Queen of Photo Ops.
I had to tackle and hold down Miss Thing to get a picture of her laying on the grass.
Look! It's Earl's Uncle Ralph!
Mom's pond is teeming with critters. Water striders, diving beetles, crayfish, bullfrog tadpoles and two different types of snails. It's a great place to go "pond scooping".
Sorry. This is a really bad shot of a crayfish.
When I first saw these guys, I thought I was looking at a fish (though there haven't been fish in this pond for about 30 years) because they were the largest animals in the pond. Then I thought they might be really really big tadpoles. But I saw two different kinds...orange/brown ones, and green/brown ones like this. Salamanders??? Newts???
I don't know from salamanders. Who knows what kind of salamanders or newts would be living in a pond in southeastern Indiana?
Another type of snail. Some had the pointy type of shell, and others had the classic swirl shell.
And what trip to Indiana would be complete without some four-wheelin'?
My sister-in-law is storing this four wheeler for her Dad until he can find a place for it, so I took the girls for a high speed spin around the pasture and through the back field. I thought they might be scared, but since they are MY girls, they loved it to no end and begged me to go faster! I look sort of demonic in this picture. Sorry. I was trying to look happy.
I will catch seven kinds of Hell from my mother-in-law for this picture.
And a continuation of Sunday Sketches...I need a new pen:
