Bathing Blue Birds

There were 5 bluebirds in the bird baths a few days ago. The water level in the baths were extra low which is perfect for bathing birds. I enjoyed watching them splash around in the water- love my bird visitors! Oh yea, I've since replenished them with water. Birds depend on a good source of water year around, even more so when we are in drought situations.

Digital photo art is my "therapy".   Sometimes I like to get a little more creative and play around with my photos.  The photos below had either too much light or too much dark in their backgrounds and I couldn't edit them to my satisfaction.  With the help of PicMonkey I washed the backgrounds with color which made them appear softer.  I like the results.  What do you think?  

I hope your day is a great one!

December Already?

December already?  Doesn't seem real, does it?  How quickly time escapes us!  I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.  Just around the corner is Christmas and I'm nowhere near ready for it.  There's so much to do and the days pass too quickly.  I had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner and truly enjoyed a little time with extended family.  

I haven't been on Blogger much the past few months, mainly because I have other projects going- working on family genealogy, trying to finish up a nature book and catching up on much needed house cleaning a little at a time.  My health hasn't allowed me to return to work yet so I've taken advantage of the time off to catch up on several things.  

Hopefully I'll have my Christmas tree decorated by this time next week.  I wish you all a wonderful weekend.  Thank you for stopping in!
