Well — that’s not totally true! I’ve just chosen not to make them one of the daily photos. That’s not to say that I didn’t take a few bird photos, but they are all “more of the same”: great blue herons and bluebirds, and I’m into “variety”! I also a shot of a ground feeding sparrow, but he, as well as the great blue heron will be bonus photos.

365 photo #95. An iris of some kind. My inlaws used to own this house before we did, and they were the ones to plant most of our landscaping, so it has been fun, over the years, to see what we have here. I was not familiar with this flower, but did some research and it’s an iris. Interesting color! The blooms do not last long, and after barely a day, they are drooping. I photographed this bloom (and a few others) at it’s prime.

365 photo #96 As I was along the shore of the lagoon looking to take more photos of our great blue heron nest, I shot this view of a neighboring house and lush vegetation and the reflection of them in the lagoon. Sometimes it takes a photo like this to help me see how much greener the grass and trees are as spring truly arrives on the lagoon.

1. ground feeding sparrow on our patio – eating the dropped seeds from our feeders above. Interesting how he is camoflaged with the patio stones and you can hardly see him!
2. red tip hedges in our front yard

365 photo #97 It was a raw, cold, gray day for most of yesterday so I chose to take the photo inside. It didn’t get much above 55 degrees, which is very unseasonably cold for Hilton Head Island! I went out to scout out photos, but was uninspired. So — this photo is some of the red earrings on my earring holder. As you can see, I hang them in “color coded” fashion! I purchased this two sided earring holder (which holds 80 earrings on one side) recently from a vendor at “Springtime Made in the South” craft fair in Savannah. I also have another single sided earring holder which is partially full (and another empty one so I have “room for expansion”! Do the math! Yes – I own a lot of earrings – which I’ve collected since college when I first got my ears pierced. Just as an aside — this is not the extent of my red earrings. More red earrings are located on the other side, too!

Unlike yesterday, the weather is clear and crisp today — perfect for our planned trip to Savannah today — so expect a photo from there for today’s photo!
