My favorite view

Towers at dusk

This picture is from Thursday night. I have wanted to take this photo for awhile now. I can't bring myself to post wilted tulips in the snow for today so you get a view I prefer to look at instead.

This little nursery is on the side of the road about 1/4 mile from my house. I love it in spring when all their little trees bloom. You can see the sun setting in the west over the horizon, too, which makes me believe I can see California... in the distance.

I'm dreaming of a white Easter...

Do not enter, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

Today, while out shopping for a new violin for Caitrin, we drove right into a snow storm! I told you it was cold yesterday. The two of us took a bunch of pictures which can be viewed from start to finish here. If you see the titles of the shots, you'll also see a pic of the future home of IKEA in our neck of the woods! They broke ground... and then it snowed.

April Lacrosse

Mom the fan, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

You would be correct if you were under the impression that lacrosse is played in spring because it's too cold to play or watch in winter. That must be why parents and fans sit under blankets and wear hats and coats in April. Today's high: 39 degrees.

Poor devoted sister-fan:
Cold fan

Baby wrens to be!

Baby wrens to be!, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

I can't believe that our wrens laid eggs! Every other year, the nests go unfilled. This year, that industrious pair worked so diligently on the nest that I hoped it really would lead to eggs. My only concern now is that I haven't seen the mother in days. I wonder if she is incubating these eggs or not. Anyone know the habits of Carolina Wrens? We found a great photojournal of nest to fledglings here.

Anyway, here's hoping I have baby wren photos to share in two weeks.

Black and white and blue/green all over...

Rocky: perfect black and white. Spring: perfect blue and green.

Like several of you other 365'ers have shared, I find it a challenge to balance my desire to take creative photos (testing my eye) against my desire to catalog/photojournal my life this year. I have plenty of great subject matter around me in the form of family, friends, nature and college, so I've decided to try to do both - an artistic capture of my year as it was lived.

New Moon, new month

New Moon 2, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

I took three of these photos, but like the clouds in this one.
