Busy picture day

This is the Hazen Tree early in the morning.
It has a little frost on it, temperature 7 degrees.
Thanks for the lighting tip Devin !!!

Okay, so this is a perfect picture, blue sky, winter day. Nothing unusual right?

Then a few seconds later I took this picture, look at the spirit clouds in the picture.
Don't ask me what they are. Devin will probably know.
Shaker in fine form.

Winter Cress

I planted this garden cress seed on Jan. 23 it is about an inch tall.
I will cut it with sissors and eat it on sandwiches when it grows a little more.
It is a lot like water cress, kind of spicy.

City workers

The city of Ammon and H&K contractors are working on the road. It turns out it was a leak in the connection of the 6" water pipe that goes straight toward my house. I took this picture through the beveled glass in the front door.

Right now it doesn't look like much, but I will keep you posted.
I would like to give it a name, any suggestions?
