About Me

My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Mating Lizards on rake handle

Have you ever come across a scene that totally amazed you, but threw you for a loop. I was sitting at my kitchen table looking out the window when I saw movement on the handle of a rake my husband left leaning on our holly shrub. It was lizards mating. I grabbed my camera and took a slew of photos. They realized I was watching them but just rotated around to the back of the rake handle. Below is a slide show of the lizards.

Our Neighbor Ben & Cindy's Cat

Their big tom cat slinking around our yard without our cats noticing him, very unlikely as you will see. He actually came onto our back deck and discovered our black cat under the decking and charged her. Not a wise idea considering he is declawed and they aren't! Both of our cats gave him a piece of their minds. That flurry of action was so fast I couldn't get photo of it as I was taking these photos from inside through the window. It would have been amusing to anyone seeing me running from one end of the house to the other getting these shots, while I was trying to eat. He finally left slinking across the back yard again. It was quite amusing.
