Day 65

After yesterday's surprise dumping of snow, I was happy to see some of it melting away again quickly so I could go check on my little buds. :) Walking around my backyard, as another photographer suggested, I found these sweet little berries on a prickly bush. One perfect little red one. I opened it up on the computer and the youngest says, "It looks too fake, mom!" haha That's SOOC so what can I tell ya? I said, "Take it up with God, because he made it!" hah

Thanks Kara! I have a Nikon D300s. My husband and boys use my old Nikon D40 so I can be in some photos!

Very cool shot; kind of the perfect balance between Winter and the coming of Spring.

Thank you for sharing your American Girl Doll story with me. First, congrats on your DD's wonderful experience with the doll and play; you must be so proud of her. And I loved reading your story because it made me feel like I'm on the right path with this life lesson and it also made me appreciate even more that I took my camera along and snapped a 100 photos of their little milestone. Thank you for the encouragement, you are a source of inspiration for me.

I love these little buds and sprouts coming up. Is anything more beautiful??? Well, I guess new babies, new puppies, but any new life is great!

May I ask how did you put the watermark on your pictures? I just started my project 356 and I would like to put my name on them also.

thankyou in advance for any tip on it.
