Photo of the Week - Week 18

Week 18 of 52

Location:  Pretty Lake, Mecosta, Mi
Subject:  Catchin' Pike

This weeks photo brings you my proud little man showing off his catch of the week.  He caught a pretty big Pike while fishing with his Dad Friday.  We didn't weigh it but it was around 20 inches.  He was pretty proud of himself and as you can tell by the look on his little brother's face, he was pretty proud of him as well.  We didn't even eat it either.  There were two younger boys fishing off the dock and not doing too well so after we photographed his success he took it over and gave it to them.

And as an added bonus I am throwing in a photo of my hydrangeas that are finally blooming.  The bloomed out white.  I have to do some research to see why it came out a different color this time around.  Last year they were a really pretty greenish blue.  UPDATE:  So apparently turning white means it has used all the nutrients in the soil that give it color.  "Greenist" way to fix it is to add your used coffee grounds to the soil.  So we shall try this in the next couple of weeks and see what happens.

Next week I may post some more flowers of wildflowers.  They are going crazy right now but my camera is stuck in place for pole barn raising photos.  It is coming along nicely.  Will post some progress pictures during the week for you all.


  1. The boys were oohing and ahing over your fish. They wanted to know why you didn't eat it!

  2. Cameron said he didn't feel like filleting it. :o) Laziness pure and simple. Ha ha!

  3. I LOOOOVE hydrangeas!
