I only got four hours of broken-up sleep last night. I’ve never been good at napping. I’m just left in this exhausted awake state of being.


Happy/Blessed Beltane, everyone!

Playing Catch-Up

I am pretty sure the last two weeks are catching up because I am beyond exhausted today. Trying to get caught up with the online world.

I Redesigned, Again

I redesigned OSN. It looks best at higher screen resolutions. That’s where you get all of the fancy effects. It’s fine on mobile but absolutely shines on a computer. Hopefully, everything works across the board. I tried to make the homepage an actual one, harkening back to the olden days of blogging.

Thank you Michelle!


The white and yellow ones, half way down, are those snap dragons?

I don’t THINK so because those tend to be more stalk like I think? Maybe in the same family?

LOVE your blog! Your pictures are breathtaking! What camera do you use? I just posted some spring pics too, but yours put mine to shame. Found you over at SITS and so glad I stopped by. I would love to follow, but not sure how to become official??

Aww thank you! Currently I use a Nikon D90 with a bunch of lenses lol. Not sure what you mean about being official?


Beautiful as always. Really love the gerber daisy one <3

Finally figured out the manual mode for my camera at the zoo today and had fun playing with the aperture like the tutorial you posted! Thanks again for sharing :)

YAY for manual mode! I will eventually do a bit on shutter speed and ISO eventually.


Thank you so much!


Oh my gosh these are absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you Caity!

Stopping over from SITS, and I LOVE!! your photos!! Just beautiful! I’ve been taking lots of spring flower photos lately (I have a D3000), and the colors and sharpness on yours are just fab. :) Looking forward to seeing more! ❤

Hi! Aww thank you, YAY for Nikon right!! What lenses do you have? If you don’t have one already, I HIGHLY suggest the Nikkor 50mm f/1.8. It’s less than $150 and I use it almost daily!

I love my Nikon! Right now I’m just using the stock lens; I’ve only had the camera since Christmas. I was going to stock up on a few necessities (new lenses, tripod, remote) but then I became suddenly unemployed! Yay for layoffs! So I’ll make do for now. :)

Unbelievably gorgeous photos, but then again…what’s new? They’re absolutely stunning! Thanks for the link love and for posting these. They brightened my day. :)

Aww thank you! You are so welcome!! Thank you for the idea of doing a photo post!
