33 Eagle reflections and flowering fireworks!

_blue bar with stars image


I went digging in the old archives again and
 found this photo of reflecting eagles!
It was one of hubby's first attempts at playing with his first 
and a very cheap digital camera 
(circa 2002, under $50 so really an experimental toy for him!) 
 so, sorry for the poor image quality. 
I had to play with it a bit to clear up the image of the eagle.
 I hope you can see it's reflection.

It is hard to tell, but this is a hand craved wood eagle I bought for hubby as a gift, he has a big patriotic collection. It was placed in front of our "heirloom" Christmas cactus in a brass planter, that still has a shriveled bloom in the back right in front of the American flag you can spy out the window.

Do you see the reflection?
I actually think it looks clearer than the original,
 but I have goofy eyes ☺.
Would anyone care to see a current photo of this eagle for comparison?

I hope everyone in North America had a fun holiday weekend and found some time to enjoy some celebrations with fireworks.

We always can hear and see (the very big high ones) from the many surrounding small communities.

I actually found some sparkling in my flower bed!

What a surprise, eh?!! 
(I think it was really little faeries with sparklers, do you? LOL)



  until next time ...



Linking up this week with
Mr. Linky below for everyone.

Did you find anything surprising or uncover an old treasure this weekend?

Your flowers had their own sparklers? They must be very patriotic plants!

That is a sweet eagle and I hope you enjoyed the holiday. We did. We had a quiet weekend and ended it with watching the fireworks, which were spectacular.

We had a fabulous Independence day weekend. The old fashioned kind that are the very best.

Have a terrific day. :)

Is the reflection supposed to be a duck. I swear I see a duck in there.
