No outfit picture today -- hanging around the house and doing some preliminary holiday cleaning and not exactly dressed photo-worthy. But in the interim I just had to post this really cool pic of a recent visitor to my yard. Perched on a hemlock branch right behind where I often stand for my photos is a beautiful barred owl -- and she's come to our yard every day for 3 days now.
While I'm at it, this brings up a FAQ: where do I live? I live in northern NJ in an area called the Highlands, a part of New Jersey with lots of state parks and protected watershed. In fact, my little mid century cottage backs up onto 150+ acres of protected woodland, thus we have alot of wildlife on my quiet street that one doesn't typically associate with suburban NJ...coyote, bear, deer, fox, turkey and now this beautiful owl. We are blessed to live where we do...we have all this gorgeous nature -- yet I'm minutes from the highway and my DH commutes to NYC!
So, enjoy the view out my window & have a great day...see ya tomorrow w/an outfit pic :)
