oh happy day

On our way out to the Mothers Day brunch Jim was taking me to, we drove down the lane to see the purple wild flowers growing.  I wish I could see these from my kitchen window.

For dinner Jim grilled three trout that he had caught in the creek, two brook and one brown trout.  Finally we got to eat the fish he caught, it's no longer catch and release season.  They tasted so good and was a perfectly light and delicious meal after eating so much at the wonderful brunch we had earlier in the day.

Three trout

Sitting out on the deck while the fish were cooking on the grill, I finally got a shot of one of the hummingbirds that have been visiting.  It's so good to see them back again.  They are quick and I'm lucky to have gotten this shot.  Through out the day I got to talk to my kids on the phone, and that was a big highlight.

A wonderful end, to a wonderful day.

Spiders and thistle

Now that the weather has been cooler in the evenings we took a walk down the lane the other night.  I stopped to take a photo of this and saw two spiders of bugs of some sort.  I was wishing I had my macro lens for this, they both looked pretty interesting.
