224/365: zola on the bars
This is an apt portrait of my daughter Zola. She is particularly dogged about doing what she sets out to do (note the tongue sticking out to express true determination). She is also a cheeky little monkey.
The monkey bars never stood a chance.
Fortunately Brad and I were having a bird ID dispute on the deck. We just put up the feeder and, while we were at the cabin, the birds discovered it.
Brad claimed they were juncos. I didn’t believe him so I took a really bad picture on his phone. It turned out to be the only shot of the day.
You will notice that there are NO birds in THIS picture. But I’m still happy. I salvaged something and managed to NOT miss a day taking a picture. In spite of myself.

If you know our family or you’ve ever explored our backyard, you know that wild life sightings are common. With the recent weed explosion in the gardens, the place has a jungle vibe that perfectly suits the big cats.
After a long, but lovely day at an indoor art fair, I couldn’t wait to experience the perfect, sunny day. I got barefoot as quickly as possible and parked myself on the deck. This was the view overhead.

This one makes me smile. Why? Because I actually took a picture of a plastic frog. Because it’s a bit unexpected. And because it’s really a perfect portrait of our backyard.
