My blogging posts and photos are part of me . I think of this as a scrapbook of my life. The names have not been changed.. they are real people who have crossed my path along my journey. Some I know intimately, my family and friends. If their names are mentioned it's a sure sign they are special to me and I love them dearly...come along see for yourself, perhaps you know some of them too..
Okay.. Its either sit home & watch the rain fall or get in the car and take a day trip to the mountains in the rain.. You can guess what I did.. We packed our lunch stuff and off we drove. Headed south towards Medicine Lake in Calif. We almost made it in to the lake but that white cold stuff stopped us frrom getting through about 5 miles from the Lake entrance.
Taking another road we came to this clearing.. well sort of a clearing.. clouds & mountains in the background and the rain started pouring. Still a pretty drive. I snapped that photo and happened to look down and saw this beautiful Morrell Mushroom peeking through the fauna. I picked a few for breakfast.
We will return in a month to enjoy the fishing on the lake but that will be another day. Once we got home Another surprise waited me.
You see a few days ago I was walking in the field and up on grassy hill where Buster had come upon the nest of the female mallard that has been swimming in the pond. I was sure he had scared her off. I saw her nest was there hidden with at a dozen eggs left unattended. Fearful and fretting now for two days that he had scared her away for good. I slowly walked back up there (with my camera just in case) to check when I saw the Drake fly to the pond...I was delighted to see right back there doing her mom to be thing..sitting quietly. Now I can't wait to see how many babies hatch.. Oh yes.. Many surprises today... Plus the deer had not touched the flowers inthe tub....
