Thanks Sage! Those are actually the neighbors' houses, shot from my front doorstep. I didn't want to stray far in the snow without my shoes.

We have the perfect window for growing things indoors over the winter: a south-facing bay window behind a sofa. It's full of milk-carton greenhouses right now, along with chives and thyme and one of those silly spider plants, which my husband is oddly attached to.

I have one for the contest

I used the zoom to get this photo. He had to have been at least 500 feet away from me. All the photos I took of him in the past made him look like a dot in the middle of a 30 acre pasture.

He did, but he chewed it off waiting for her to find the zoom.

Yes! I'll send you my glasses. If you look real close you'll see extra furriness on the leg that is visible. He was standing with the front left leg out of view.

My last camera said zoom on it. This one has arrows. They're messin with my head with all these new little pictures instead of words. Zoom I understood. Arrows meant nothing to me.

Stop picking on me you two. Wildlife Gardeners has their token non-gardener and now they have their token non-photographer- me!

I took around 20 photos. I saved 3. This was the pick of the litter. If you want I can post the other two. On one of them he must have turned the other way while I was clicking because I have a body with no head but it was in focus so I kept it. I noticed that most of my photos were very blurry. The better photos I got because I propped the camera on a fence post. What do you do if there is no fence post?

I'm just teasing - I have NO room to pick on you. At least you knew what the button with the flower is for. I punched it the other day, and up comes a screen with all kinds of scary stuff at the bottom - and I exited out of it as fast as I could.

Who's our token non-gardener? Are they sort of like our mascot? Should we bring them treats? heeheehee

I'm WG's token non-gardener! I live in a second-floor condo with just a small balcony. In the spring I plant everything possible in the long terra-cotta planters
