Handmade by each of them. Adelaide did the plate (her handprint is in the center although it's hard to see) and Magdalena made the cup and teapot which sits cozily in the cup!

Most of my neighbor's daffodils are definitely on their last legs, but mine are still hanging in there. I must have a slightly different variety, but I'm sure mine won't last much longer.
Of course, I'm not really sure if this is a daffodil. It could be a Narcissus or a Jonquil. I tend to forget which one is which.

For my son's birthday we went to a restaurant called Tre Famiglia in Haddonfield , N.J. I really hate to use flash in a restaurant and this place was pretty dark, so I decided to try using my X10 on the EXR mode. I hate letting my camera make too many decisions, but didn't have time to trust myself with a camera I'm still slightly unfamilar with.
It did pretty well, other than the white balance seemed pretty far off. My son's arm still looks a little pink in that top right image even after some adjustments in camera RAW.
I am not a good bird photographer, not sure I have the patience. But when a young hawk sets up a vigil in your backyard it's hard to resist. His interest in our fish pond kept him on the branch a little longer than normal while I attempted to sneak up on him, but as you can see, he kept an eye on me.

I keep saving all the buttons that come attached in little envelopes with new clothing. I don't believe I've ever used one. But I know for a certainty that the one time I don't save a button, I'm going to really need it and there won't a single match in all the others I've kept!

My husband and I decided a somewhat unhealthy breakfast was okay for a weekend morning, so we headed off to Panera's for a treat. Of course, you know how it is; you're hungry, everything looks so good, you can't make a choice of just one.
