Around my neighborhood

Went out with my youngest, Alex yesterday on a little photography expedition. We both took turns with the camera!! He had a blast, as did I. He was talking about photography to his brothers at the table during dinner tonight. We had spaghetti tacos!
These are from the very end of our lake right before it goes over a little waterfall and into a field of cows.
I wanted to get some close ups of these gorgeous water lilies, but can't get close without going in!!
So I used the zoom as far as I could.

This is a hydrangea just starting to bloom. I love hydrangeas, they are everywhere in Connecticut. This one is right in my front garden under my living room window.
And of course Echinacea Purpurea. These things spread like weeds after a few years, but they are still pretty! Now if I could just get the little bugs to stop chewing on them.

This is one of Alex's photographs. I love it. He thought it was cool that the sky was peeking through the trees.
I am so glad that he is home for summer vacation. I don't like being out of work right now with my back, but I am thankful that I get to spend some time with my boys!!

This was taken from our dock looking over the diving board. I like how the sun is just going down over the hills.

This is our view going up the lake toward the North. You can see the Kalmia Latifolia on the right side. The little flowers are so cute close up. Little pink blossoms with tiny red dots inside each one. They are the Connecticut State flower.
