Around the Yard

I have a list below of memes I am joining for this week, and to save time I am doing one post for all. They are all fun memes to participate in...I hope you can join in with the fun  and check out some of the participating posts. Special thanks to all the wonderful host and their memes, I hope you have some time to check them out.

May 4th is our 26th Anniversary, the years have flown by.  I am thankful for my hubby and all the happy years! That is my recent news and now for some scenes from around my yard and neighborhood. We found an Bald Eagle's nest at our lake, it is kind of a distant view but I have various photos to share of our walk to the lake and some of our blooming trees and plants.


The Eagle's nest I found at the edge our lake.


Our view across the lake, the eagle's nest is hardly visable, a Goldfinch and a Canada Goose, hubby and the end of the fireroad at the edge of the lake and last is a view of the trail thru the woods.


Our walk on the fireroad ends here, a great view of our reservoir.

Some blossoms and blooms from our yard. The Redbud tree, Azaleas, Creeping Phlox, unknown blossoming bush and dogwood blooms.


Our little pond, some creeping phlox and we have some white waterlilies that have been coming back every year.


I have traveled past this farm and barn too many times to count during the 27 years we have lived in our house.

For Tom's Barn Collective I have drive by shots of some neighborhood barns.

Saturday's Critters #124

Saturday's Critters #124

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.
Are Saturday's coming fast for you, I am surprised how quickly the month of April disappeared. Happy May to everyone, I hope our weather will be warmer.
I am sharing some images from our visits to Virginia Beach and Back Bay NWR. While walking on the beach at Back Bay NWR we saw dolphins, northern gannets, pelicans, gulls and a grebe and an osprey on the bay side.
