2-28-11 Ummm.....Squirrel!

This little guy was teasing Keilo today as he was foraging for food. By the time he jumped to the second tree, Keilo had either lost interest or lost sight of where he was.

2-14-11 Happy Valentine's Day

Today is Valentine's Day. A day to remember the ones that you love. Some say it's a "Hallmark" day. I believe it's a day to celebrate those who mean the most to you.

2-13-11 Warm(er), Sunny Day

Today was beautiful! With the temperature in the lower 50's, Keilo & I couldn't stay indoors. We went for a walk at a nearby park. Althought the ponds were still frozen, there were still lots of fellow "warmth worshipers" out, jogging, walking their dogs, and just enjoying the sun. With the temperatures we have been experiencing over the last couple of weeks, it was not surprise.

2-10-11 Feed the Birds

I cussed the fruit from the Bradford Pear tree in our front yard this fall. The berries covered the yard and the driveway. You couldn't walk across the yard without the bottom of your shoes being covered with smashed berries. Now that winter has come, and we have had so much snow, I have rather enjoyed watching the birds feed upon the berries. At one point, they would pick the berries, then come onto the porch, out of the wind, to eat them, leaving the stems. With the winter we have been having, I'm glad the tree full of berries has been there for them.

2-9-11 Snow, Snow, Everywhere!

We had 9 inches of snow in the past 24 hours. This is the third storm since the first of the year. Glad the forcast says "sunshine" the rest of the week.

2-7-11 Looking Through

The Daily Shoot suggests using a window or door frame to "frame" the shot. I thought this brick fence would "frame" the shot just as well.

2-6-11 Circular United Church of Christ

Another one of the many churches in Charleston, SC. This one has a "castle" feel to it.

2-3-11 The (Original) Citadel

This is the side view of the Embassy Suites in Charleston. This also used to be home to "The Citadel". The Citadel is "the Military School of South Carolina." The hotel is located in the original Citadel Military College and is on the National Historical Registry. When they converted it to a hotel they didn't change much of the building. Some of our group said they had "gun turrets" visible in their rooms!

2-2-11 Southern Art

While I was walking around Charleston, I found this class sculpture in the window of an art gallery. Didn't catch the price, but I'm sure it was expensive.
