My Staring always gets them going~~~~~~!

Sitting by the side door to the deck,
I begin my staring regime.

Then instantly, without too much time, I'm out the door and heading for the garden.

My favourite spot of tall grass is waiting for me beside the espaliered pear tree.
While Jim focuses on a tulip, I devour my salad.

I have to keep my eye on him, just to make sure he doesn't sneak back into the house.

Are you kidding! Jim has been waiting patiently for these magnolias to bloom and 

while I sniff and meander

click and see!

So you see what happens when I situate myself in the proper position for my stare fest,
I gets me my results and so does Jim!


  1. Jim's pictures are amazing, just like you say. And your stares always get you what you want. You go, girl!

  2. Sophie! YOu get 5 stars in bean training! way to go!!!

  3. Sophie, I doubt that your dads are never without their cameras! I don't take as many pictures, because my camera picks up all the dust in my house!

  4. I'm sure the whole household depends on you in order to function, Sophie!

  5. Sophie, you have discovered the wisdom in... A stare is worth a 1000 words! :-)

  16. Love your Magnolia Pictures :)
    We started doing this thing called a photo scavenger hunt, hosted by the blog,
    Our doggie pal, George the Lad, a Welsh Terrier from England, got us hooked. Take 12 pictures each month from the list, post them, blog about it....It's fun, we find ourselves driving through town looking for red doors and interesting street lights and blue things... :)
