Beautiful white Ibris

At the lovely old Bedford Village Inn in Bedford NH for the wedding of Matt and Sarah, David's son. David will be marrying them tomorrow. The weather has turned sunny and warmer, but still very windy. Looking forward to a couple of great days with family and friends of David's.

Need a little sunshine today!

Up at four and hit the road for airport at five. Landed in Boston to a cold wind and rain. We are freezing our butts up here, but the wedding must go on. And it shall! The boys have their tux and look mighty handsome I might add. Can't wait to see the little girls as they're off getting their manicures and pedicures today. Our friends from Texas just arrived as we got back to hotel so we should have a fun evening with them. They're cold also. I'm thinking if the buds haven't burst forth in Ma. then will it ever happen in Maine?

This little one is so cute!

It seemed there were two different batches of babies in the nest, this one being just a little older than the one with the white hairs sticking up. Off to Boston in the early morning . Not prepared for the cold just yet, but here I come.

Not sure but if I was to guess this one might be just a few weeks old. So darn cute!

Happy Easter 2014

David and I played golf which was a change of pace for us. No cooking, no eating out, just a calm and quiet day. Getting myself organized for trip to Boston this week. Hard to figure out what to take to wear as the weather here is so lovely, and not sure what we will find there.

Hit the jackpot today!

Finally after two years of trying to get a photo of the burrowing owl's babies, I got them today. David discovered this family on his bike ride and took me out today to try and photograph them. Harder than you might think as they run back down in the den. When we came upon them I swear there were at least three babies and one juvenile as well as both parents. All scooted back down in the hole . After waiting patiently, three came back out. What a thrill!

A King amongst Butterfly's!

I consider the Monarch the most beautiful but perhaps it's because we have them in Maine and I'm always thrilled to see it appear.

A beautiful glass sculpture made by Michigan artist Craig Mitchell Smith. This hung in the butterfly garden at Disney which was just lovely.
