The week started out with snow and ended with a walk in our favorite fen. Today is Easter, so my semi blog break is at an end. We’ll see if my creativity has been restored :)

The State of the Bug: I wore one of my grandmother’s hats to church.
It started snowing that afternoon.
By that evening Dr. M was able to scoop some up.

This was my view on my way to work.
Dr. M took these pictures in our back yard – such a pretty snow.

I swear this cow looks stoned! You can still see the weed coming out of her mouth. Heh.

The Tax Time Pig is ready for Easter.
Little fox squirrels on Dr. M’s campus.
The story here is hilarious. Dr. M saw the burro chasing the llama around the cows. Then the burro stopped & rolled around on the ground. Then it decided to stare at Dr. M.

Grackle – as I often say, so much prettier than its name (or reputation).

I got some surprise Feryl Designs earrings in the mail – sweet! Rebecca makes some really fabulous jewelry. Check out her facebook or Etsy page.
I’m working on a prayer shawl for a friend.
Mr. Cardinal strutting his stuff.
Starling – another bird much prettier than his reputation!

Dr. M & I went to church this morning to help set up for Easter. I took a quick picture of the Good Friday almost bare altar (I used PicMonkey for the effect). When we left it looked quite different – but that’s a picture for next week.
Afterward we went to Siebenthaler Fen to see if any swamp marigolds were blooming yet. We didn’t see any, but it was still a lovely walk.
I played around with the panorama feature on my camera (took 5 different overlapping pictures to get this scene). It’s kind of odd, because the sidewalk on the right of the picture is actually a continuation of the sidewalk on the left. It was behind me and then I turned around taking the picture.
I always have to get a picture of the cattails.
And Dr. M always has to take pictures of birds. Here are a red wing blackbird, a red bellied woodpecker and a robin.
It was a lovely walk, and the bare branches were in keeping with the tone of Holy Saturday. It wasn’t quite time to burst forth into life. Almost, but not quite.
Go to Mamma Fran’s blog here to see the blogs of all the other Project 365 participants. Have a great week!
Most of our photos are taken with a 12 megapixel Nikon D5000 DSLR, using a 55-200mm zoom lens. This is the camera that Dr. M takes with him most days. He also takes pictures with our old reliable 7 megapixel Canon Powershot A710. The Bug uses our new Nikon Coolpix S6200 most of the time. If you’re interested in which camera was used for a particular shot, just ask!
