I used an ice digital effect to create these two pieces. I love how smooth the lines are, like flowing water. I’m really enjoying participating in the Caturday art blog hop and getting the chance to be more creative on this blog.

Spring is here and that means flowers are blooming. Whether it’s perennials blossoming or you or your neighbors are planting some new annuals, you and your pets will probably encounter some flowers at this time of year. In general it’s always best to keep your dogs from eating any type of plants, but now that it’s Spring all the new flowers may smell too interesting for your dogs to ignore. Even if you have no flowers on your own property, you may pass some flowers on a walk in the park or around the neighborhood. So today I’ve put together a list of flowers your pets need to avoid, as they may cause health issues if eaten or even sniffed. Remember to keep your pets from all parts of these plants, as sometimes it’s the stem or leaves that are harmful to pets, not necessarily the flower petals.
Last holiday season I shared with you my favorite tips for taking a great photo of your pets. (Click here to see all of those tips.) Today I’d like to focus on one tip in particular: walk your dogs before taking your photos. As I mentioned before, walking your dog before a photo session has a number of benefits. You can work out your dog’s excess energy, making him or her more cooperative when sitting still for a photo. Also, your dog enjoys going for a walk, and your dog’s happy mood when you get home usually shows through in your photos. Sadie and I had a photo shoot last month that is a perfect example of the difference between taking photos before and after a walk.
This week’s 52 Snapshots of Life theme is Spring. Although it’s technically Spring right now, the weather here in NJ hasn’t quite caught up yet. In fact, it actually snowed on the first day of Spring last week. So today I’m going to share some photos from last Spring, in the hopes that real Spring weather isn’t too far away.
