Weekly Winners – March 1, 2009 – March 7, 2009

This week’s Weekly Winners is dominated by my older dog, Jimmie. He is a greyhound mix, will be twelve years old next month and managed to make into half of my favorite shots this week. Most of these are from an outing to Merchant’s Millpond State Park, North Carolina. The last one is from my front yard in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Enjoy!

    Bald Cypress is what the man at Occoquan Days used to make gnomes.
