For all you snake lovers I have a question that I would love an answer to. I have several small red bellied brown snakes on the property and I have noticed that a few of them will freak out and die while others seem fine. I don't see them unless I get too close the them with the mower. The garter snakes just move out of the way and are not phased by my mower. Are they that sensitive? Please could someone out there let me know if they are that sensitive. I may not like snakes, but I would NEVER hurt one. They keep the slugs in check. They are a great bonus to the garden.
Thanks in advance for the help.
Well I just wanted to get that out there, I have to get back to work. I have a big show this weekend.
Have a great day everyone

I have been so busy getting my garden in shape, weeding, mulching, transplanting and there is still more to do. I decided yesterday morning to take a break and photograph around the yard and that's when I came across these 2 itsy bitsy spiders hanging around my porch. The spider on the right maybe a baby wolf spider, I haven't been able to identify the other one. They are both about the same size. Though the wolf spider will get much larger.
Have a great day.

Well here in Maine we have had a great stretch of nice weather. I have been able to get some gardening done, alittle tilling, alittle weeding and finding lots of earthworms. I mean lots! I have black plastic paths in my garden that had some some small dirt piles and under those dirt piles where huge clusters of earthworms. They were everywhere. So where I tilled I threw them on those beds and they almost immediately disappeared into the soil. Tell ya I don't have any soil problems with that many earthworm! Which is very good! You just never know what you will discover in the garden. It's kinda like being a kid again, you get in there and clean and weed and you seen new things and explore and try to understand why. The earthworms were trying to stay warm from the black plastic and also trying to keep from drying out. There is always a reason why nature does what it does. We just have to figure it out. You never, never, never stop learning! This is when I wish I had some kids around to show and tell with. Some how I don't think my dogs really care. They would probably try to eat them. Yuck!!
So in between trying to get my gardening done and all the other errands that I have been running around doing, I have managed to update my website and have added a What's New in 2009 page which contains 2010 calendars and I will also now be accepting credit card payments. I am very excited about it! I hope that it will boost my sales some. Please visit my website at http://www.cindiresslerphotography.com/ and let me know your thoughts. I can take some criticism.
Everyone Have a Great Day!

So as I wait for the ground to thaw before I can do any gardening, I thought I'd work on a project. Well the project is to make photo trays that I can use for my art shows to display and store my photos in when not doing shows. So there would be a top and bottom. I took the time to work out the dimensions, and I even made a cardboard version to see how it would look. Well this morning I started the project and keep in mind that I am not a carpenter, but I do know my way around a workshop somewhat. Everything was going smoothly for the most part until it was time to put the sides together. Now I asked the guy at the hardware store should I use screws or nails. He said screws, on the other hand Mom says nails. I went with screws and glued the seams. But the screws split the wood in several places despite pre drilling. Now if I had it my way I would buy the trays, but I can't find what I am looking for. And I don't know any local carpenters who could do the job. I need trays that are between 3-5 inches high and from 8-14 inches wide and about 22 inches in length. If anyone out there can tell me where I can find these sizes please let me know. I would love to keep my sanity! Though I am not one to give up easily. So I am back to the drawing board after I have gained some of my sanity back. I will persevere! I will make my trays and they will do exactly as I want! I hope. But if anyone know where I can buy them that would be great!!!
I will be making some changes to my website soon keep an eye out! www.cindiresslerphotography.com
Hey everybody have a great day!!!

If this isn't a sign of spring! I absolutely love spring it is my favorite time of year. I now go out every day with my dogs and walk the property looking for signs of spring. There is still alot of snow, but it is disappearing. I'm eager to start working the garden, but that's still about 2 or 3 weeks away. I can see small buds on the trees and lilacs and azaleas. The robins are back in town. I feel re energized! Spring in a great season. Everything is fresh and new. Have a Wonderful Day!

This photograph I just took today and it is a small stream within my tire tracks on my driveway which will be mostly mud once all the snow has melted. It will be tough driving in and out of the driveway. A little 4 wheelin in the drivway.
I am so anxious for spring! I can't wait to start up my photo shoots. I'll be starting my tomato and broccoli seeds indoors in a couple of weeks.
I have pretty much tied up my loose ends with the business including finishing my taxes yeah! I have some new products that I will be adding to my website soon, as well as all my shows. I only have 2 more shows to hear from which I am hoping will be this week and I will then put them on my website www.cindiresslerphotography.com for you to see.
I guess now I can take some time and kick back and relax a bit. Not! I'll find plenty to keep me busy. There is always something I forgot about.
Have a great day everyone!

I am trying to decide what photo to post today, and what is it I want to talk about. I am going to work on my 2009 budget for my shows based on what I have heard regarding the economy. I will also work on a 2010 budget in hopes that the economy is better as predicted by our government. I want to stay on a positive note. I truly believe that despite this recession it will be a good year. I think for many of us it will mean changes in our lives some good and some not so good. A lot of us will start our own businesses. Who really knows what our future holds for us, we just have to follow our hearts and instincts which will get us to where we want to be. We have to stay positive and be confident in what ever we are doing. All in good time. As our President says it is time for change. I have to believe in myself and wanting to make a living as a photographer, because there isn't anything else I want to do. Photography is my life and I am more determined than ever to learn everything I can to make my business a successful one. The other night I took a business intro class and it was very interesting in the fact that I know more than I thought and I have tons to learn and better understand. There is a continuation of this business class which will be about 6-8 weeks long and will go into more detail. Which I think is exactly what I need to be a better business person. I will persevere, I will be a successful photographer doing what I love within 2 years! If you want something bad enough you will get it!
Here are 2 quotes that I think are perfect for this post.
