The prompt for this day was 'under'. I am sure I could have been a little more creative with this one, but this seems to work.

I am in the middle of a big quilt project right now, two twin size quilts. I spent the weekend cutting out lots and lots and lots of squares.

Most of the time, my 50mm lens lives on my camera. But when I saw all the little birds flying around our backyard, I put on my 55-200mm lens and tried to capture a few of these busy little guys. Boy, they are quick. As soon as I would focus on one, they would fly away. I cropped this one in so you can see the bird a little better, but it is not as crisp as I would like. He is cute though.

Learning that it was 'Pie Day' gave me an excuse to bake. I was hoping to make a lemon pie, but since I didn't have any lemons on hand, cherry was a welcome substitute.

We have gotten quite a bit of rain lately, and with all the clouds, I knew the sunsets have given us lots of colorful sunsets. I took my camera and drove down the road, but wasn't finding exactly what I was looking for. Until I saw all those pink clouds at the end of the orchard.

My bulbs are blooming!! Whenever I see this in the middle of winter, I wish I had taken the time to plant more bulbs in the fall. Now to be on watch for those first blooms...

I know, two food photos in one week. But I didn't pick up my camera at all during the day yesterday, so dinner it was. This is Chicken with Mustard Cream Sauce from The Pioneer Woman. Pretty easy to throw together, even on a weeknight.
