This n' That

A male Black Headed Grosbeak at my feeder; I've seen a female, too, so hopefully they'll have babies. 
I caught Lucy trying to sneak a sip of my tea.  She likes it because I put milk in it, so I have to be alert!  This attempt didn't work for her, happily for me. 
I just stopped and stared for a minute at this dogwood tree in Lake Arrowhead village before I thought to take a photo.  I've never seen a dogwood tree so loaded with blossoms, let alone a pink one with so many flowers! 
Lake Gregory was looking pretty on a day last week. 

I let these roses dry in the vase.  I thought they looked sort of vintage, so I photographed them by my mother's 88 year old recipe box.  It's full of recipes in her handwriting and my sister's handwriting.  Both are in heaven now, so it's one of my most treasured things.

Friday Skies

Two days ago we had a light dusting of snow.  It was gone by noon the next day. 
The clouds the storm left behind over Lake Arrowhead were so beautiful. 
The lilacs are still going strong, loving the cooler weather.  It's 75 F today, though, so I don't know how much longer they'll last. 
The clouds were almost gone by the end of the day but, happily, a few stayed around to make a pretty sunset.
