Wordless Wednesday

Dahlias, Camellias, and Rhodies, Oh My!

Last call for flower pics!  Get them in to Momma at 
marianne(dot)d(dot)howard(at)gmail(dot)com before Sunday!

And this is what we call hurricane prep:

Failed Photos

I admit, when I am planning a blog post, I take a ton of pictures.  Who am I kidding, I take a ton of pictures all the time.  Sometimes, they are pretty awesome, and sometimes, they are an epic fail.

Too dark

Eyes closed

Too blurry

Not looking at me


Subject too far away
What do you do with your failed photos?   Sometimes I just delete them, but sometimes they get saved, because they are just part of the bigger moment.
Here’s the rest of the set from the first one, too dark – 

I think she’s cute even when she’s blurry, dark and not paying attention, no?  These pictures are from our first day at home together, how could I delete any of those!
***Subliminal message***
Just a few days left – send them on in to marianne(dot)d(dot)howard(at)gmail(dot)com
PS-I still haven’t seen the frog hopping around anywhere and I am CONVINCED it’s still in the umbrella.  Did you see his sticky finger-thingamabobers?!  Gross!

Flower Show Pics!

Hewwwowww folks!  Finn here.  Did you hear about the blogville Labor Day Partay?  It is going to be so much fun, and guess what?  Frankie said I get to host the Flower Show!!  I know you love sniffing in those flowers just as much as I do.

So send in your pics to my momma at marianne(dot)d(dot)howard(at)gmail(dot)com by Sunday, August 28th!  You know momma’s a little slow on this computer thing, so we need to give her some extra time to get all the pics together.  But that gives you two weeks to get some great flower pictures in!  Make sure to tell her your name and your blog so she can identify you too.

Thanks friends and I’ll see you at the partay!  

April Showers Bring…


Took Finn for a little walk yesterday morning before work.  So much to sniff!
