Day 1 of the A to Z Challenge!!!


 
Awesome Daffodils
 
 March 31, 2016
 
I will be posting a new photo ideally
taken the day before.
I live up in the mountains of
Northern California just 70 miles
south of the Oregon border.
This photo shows all the daffodils our
neighbor cut for us as we walked her property before having a lovely dinner.
Enjoy!
See you tomorrow!

Six Words and Shadow Shot Sunday March 12-13, 2016

I met Isabella the Iguana yesterday....
Some places of business have cats or dogs,
but I'd never been in a beauty salon where
the resident pet was an Iguana!
Isabella was polite and stayed on her window
seat and thankfully
didn't want to sit on my lap!
And I got the best haircut and color ever!
