Hi Karen Mcclurg....Welcome to my blog. I deleted my blog archive some time ago because it was taking up too much room on my sidebar. I found another way to add it which takes up no room at all. It's in my sidebar now under my Real Estate Website.
Thanks for asking me to post it.
Enjoy going back in time.
xo, Rosemary

We're fortunate to have a large flock that shows up every winter just a short way from our home. They're beautiful birds--but they never sit still long enough for me to get a picture.
It's nice to see these prints--gives me somewhat of an idea.

What lovely watercolors and so appropriate for your current weather conditions.

I can't say it enough, Rosemary...please be very careful when you decide to take shovel in hand.
