This moon shot was taken last night. I glanced out the kitchen window and saw the moon glow on the still frozen pond and realized the moon must be about full. So I grabbed the camera for my first moon shot with it. Once you've seen one moon shot, you've seen them all...:D But I had fun for a few minutes.
What a difference a few days of warmer temperatures make. We can see the ground and the grass is getting green already! But look what's been popping up all over. Not flowers. Moles. The pesky critters. Do you know a sure-fire way to get rid of them? Please let me know if you do!
Another thing I noticed this morning besides the moles was the absence of birds! Maybe because the feeders are about empty or the warmer weather has caused them to be elsewhere. But I haven't seen many birds the last couple of days. That will be sure to put a damper on my bird count.
Hubby and I have been talking about taking a little getaway or mini vacation. Probably leaving on a Friday and coming home on Monday. Since we live in Missouri, the usual places that spring to mind are the Lake of the Ozarks and Branson. Ditto Kansas City and St Louis. But, it's a case of been there, done that many times and we want to go somewhere different. I wouldn't mind a run down to Memphis to tour Graceland again and stop in Cape Girardeau on the way. I've been there before, too, but it's been close to 30 years since we've seen Graceland. He's not that excited about going there, tho. Any suggestions? It's really not a great time of year yet for a scenic type of trip which I love, so I'm having a hard time coming up with something. We'll be driving. Here's hoping for some good ideas!
Have a good weekend everyone!
