We have had an extremely dry Winter and start to Spring, so it is with much joy that we received a good shower of rain early yesterday evening. The dried out lawn really needed this watering.

Taken today, pale winter sky not showing enough blue so I added denim to it … haha

I used PhotoScape to edit/photoshop these photos.

Recently when I had problems with my computer I took a photo of the cables in case I had a problem assembling everything again. While I was casually playing around with photo affects for this weekend’s Sunday Stills challenge I accidently created this cool effect by reversing colours.

this is addictive one more ;)

We went outside one cold winters morning to find an abused, abandoned and freezing puppy who barked at me and was terrified. We fed him and gave him a warm place to sleep. He eventually settled down and I taught him to trust again and we have a very strong bond. He is super intelligent and watches my hands all the time to see my commands. All I have to do is point and he knows “go” we and going for a walk.

Our black dog, protecting us since 2004. Lovable and playful he has stolen my heart completely.
