Happy Sunday

How has everyone's week been? 
I have been busy busy once again. 

I had a wonderful little visitor this weekend.
Myles and his Dad came up for the weekend to go
to a wedding.  So you know I am excited.  My daughter 
didn't get to come along which is a total bummer. But I have been
Kissing and Hugging on my sweet Grandson the whole weekend.

So its time for another Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

This weeks prompts were all about St Patty's day.
I had such a hard time with this weeks prompts. 
So I did a bit of stretching with the photo prompts once again.  
And I had to pull some from the archives. 
But I got-r-done.

I always feel LUCKY when I can catch a shot
of a humming bird..
 I know... pretty lame... 
but its all I got.

This is my sweet grand-nephew.
He is all IRISH my friends. Both of his parents
are Irish and were married on St Patties day.
His blond hair has a tint of red, he's so darn cute.
And such a happy baby.. Even though he looks pretty
serious here. 

I caught a picture of this little fella picking seeds off
this sunflower,  This shot was taken last September in
Zion National park.  And as you can see there was lots of daylight.

This is a new photo.. YEA..  I caught it while I 
was out on a hunt for clovers. Which I never found.
I am pretty sure this little guy found his Pot of Gold.


I pulled this one from the archive as well. We have no clovers 
here in the desert,  at least none I could find. This shot was taken
down in Mexico. It brings back memories of an early morning walk
were I found this clover all by itself on a wall..  You know I had to snap
a photo of it. 

Thanks so much for popping in.
I haven't had a lot of time to visit you this weekend.
But I will be by soon to see what everyone has been up to. 

I hope everyone had a 
Happy St. Patties day if you celebrate it.

Till next time my sweet friends.

Susan said...

I love that baby shot-no smile works. There's an intensity in those eyes that matches the mood. Glad to hear someone else struggled with the prompts. No clover in the desert and none when the ground is snow covered either.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Becca said...

Awesome shot of the bee Linda! Your grand nephew is sweet in that photo. Hope you got some fun shots of Myles this weekend too!

Ida said...

Wonderful set.
Your Irish shot is so adorable, loving that little "pout" on his sweet face.
Clover is a cool looking shot.
Lucky - Wish I could get lucky enough to capture something like that. It's gorgeous.
Pot of Gold - Fabulous.

Becca said...

Me again! I forgot to say too, that that humming bird looks like an extension of that stick it's on. :-)

Carletta said...

I know from experience that those hummers barely stay still - beautiful shot!
Your Grandson is a cutie! Mine had reddish hair when he was born but it's blond now with just a reddish hint in the sunlight.
Love your interpretation of Pot of Gold - very creative and a wonderful capture of the bee and flower.

OKay call me crazy typing away on the wrong keys and see just as I hit enter ;) As always you pics are perfect to go with the prompts~ They are all great but the one with the clove on the way is really so cool with all the color and texture! I think you are right this is going to be a very long hot one! Way to early to be this hot! Good thing you are getting out of Dodge my friend ;) Now Im really thinking about the stowaway idea LOL

Sandie Edwards said...

Your posts always make me smile .... the news contained, the photographs are always so 'I'm in awe' .... thank you for your inspiration. I'm so pleased you got to spend time with your Grandson....x

delicious photography Linda! The clover picture is stunning, really gorgeous. May be it's not so much the clover itself, but the texture of the wall... oh la la, bellissima!

hugs and happy Tuesday,

I don't know, Linda... your images for the scavenger hunt always seem clever and brilliant to me - always!
