I think I planted more early on because of the Greenthumb club I'm doing with the kids. So, that got me to plant some more for us...but not nearly enough yet.

Oh, I want to plant more asparagus---but this time in a big pot--so that I can take it in and out of the greenhouse to extend its growing season...I'll want to be able take it out in the heat of the summer. I'd love to be able to have it in the greenhouse in the spring coming up EARLIER than those in the garden.

Ooops I just realized we're
Dapjwy...Do you move the peas, radishes, kohlrabi, and lettuce outdoors when the time comes? Those are things you usually plant direct.

Maggy, it took me a second to spot the mourning dove. Not bad camofluage! The males are starting to strut with their irridescent chests puffed out up here.

The second photo looks almost comical with the perfect profile of the fish (although I'm sure the fish doesn't think so).

Great bald eagle--great shots in general

Wow! Great bird shots, especially in flight, though I do love the little dove mommy!

Thank ya'll for the compliments.

I do feel a little bad about the Osprey with the fish picture. My daughters boyfriend was in town from England and I had taken him out on the boat so he could see some of the local wildlife and waterfowl and his battery ran out on his camera so I threw mine on auto and handed it to him. He was taking a few shots of some egrets when I saw the Osprey coming down the creek and without hesitation I snatched that camera from his hands, flipped the dial and started snapping away. He's been giving me a hard time since...complaining about missed shots or something.....

That dove was in a Palmetto tree at my neighbors house. They called me down when they spotted it and to get the shot I wanted I had to climb on the outside of the railing on their porch and then I got down on my tummy to shoot down into the tree. I was so intent on what I was doing I didn't notice that my neighbor was taking shots of me...
