New Years Eve

It's New Years Eve and it its 75*. The first of the week we had a low of 17*. Of course, this kind of weather brings on tornadoes. The cold is coming back tonight and tomorrow. I heard it will be in the twenties for lows in a couple of more days.
These are some blooms and baby limes on my key lime tree.
I saw a honey bee and a couple of lady bug in my little green house. I went to get the camera; you got it. They were gone by the time I got back out.

So I got a few pictures of the Goldfinches. They are yumming it up.

When it is cold, there will be about eight to ten on each sock. I also have different feeders and a sunflower seed feeder. I do like to watch the birds and see what all kind of breeds I get.
I hope everyone has a Happy New Year!!

Camping Trip

In November we went camping. (No, I have not been camping all this time; I've just been busy, lazy or something or all of the above). This is what we were camping in. Actually, there were two trucks and campers.

We had great fun. We went hiking and sitting around a fire for it was cold. We were camping at Lake Claiborne in northern Louisiana. Not far from home.

This was one of the sites when we came close to the lake on one of our hikes through the woods.

This was outside the camper one morning. There was lots of fog on the lake. I was trying to get a shot of ducks I saw fishing. It didn't happen. It was a really pretty spot and I hope we do this again in the early spring. I also hope I do better at my blogging. Sorry to be away so long.
