Scavenger Hunt

Scavenger hunt time - a hunting we will go.

BACKGROUND

I thought this might be the hardest - but I found things in the background - I'm guessing that is what background means - at least the is what is means to me.

Clouds and islands in the background at the beach

A farm in the backgournd of daffodil fields



Sunset in the background of the trees at the cemetery

Canada in the background 

And there is a cat in the background - at my living room window.  The neighbor's cat is looking at me - I think he wants me to not notice that he likes to sit right next to the bird feeders.

SPOTTED OR DOTS

I thought the California Poppies we saw today looked like polka dots in the lawn

WEATHER

Rainy weather

It must be nice weather - the flamingos are out at the ferry terminal on Lummi Island

MOTION

Pintail Ducks at bath time




Ring Necked Ducks heading out


SWEET

Cranberry Orange Scones I baked this week.


Lilacs have one of the sweetest scents of spring.

You got some really neat shots this week - I am especially drawn to the daffodil field and barn as well as the sunset background shots.

Honey Mommy said...

Love your flower polka dots. I also had to laugh at your flamingos! You found lots of break background pictures. Great set this week!

Kay said...

Nice shots, but the scones caught my attention (it's past lunchtime!). Love seeing the ducks in action and, of course, the daffodils and the lilacs.

Karen said...

Lovely background shots, love the cat one.
