Flowers From Friends

Below are a few photos that friends have taken of spring flowers just recently.  All of them make me happy, and as I’ve said before, “Flowers are the Great Physician’s happy pills.”  Enjoy!

These photos of spring wildflowers were taken by Seresa Hunter Crowson on a recently family camping trip to the Texas hill country.  Note the beautiful butterfly in the second photo.

This one was taken by Holly Cate of Holly Cate Photography, a young woman with an amazing eye for stunning photographs.  You can see more of her photos, and purchase them, by going to the link above.

This crocus photo was graciously shared by Western Rose, another young woman with an eye for beauty, and sister to Holly Cate.  You can see that photographic talent definitely runs in the family – as does rifle shooting 🙂  You can find more photos at The Little Adventures of Western Rose, or read more about her by CLICKING HERE.

Thank you, Ladies, for sharing these beautiful photos of creation with us!

Camera shots

This photo was taken the other day, then two days later, I took the one below of the same basic area on the tree (though not exactly the same angle).  You can see how many new blooms have burst out in just a couple of days (and I’m sorry I just noticed the trash bags – will have to crop later :0)

Amazing!

The next ones were taken from my hammock in the back yard, from late afternoon to dark.

New Life!

“All through the long winter, I dream of my garden. On the first day of spring, I dig my fingers deep into the soft earth. I can feel its energy, and my spirits soar.” Helen Hayes

I still haven’t figured out how to put prominent photos on my blog page or even the sidebar, so I’m putting this one in a post.  It’s a photo I took yesterday of a tree in my yard that is just starting to bud.  This picture, and the tree, make me happy, because they tell me it’s Spring – at least it is in my neck of the woods.  And since I love taking pictures of nature, there may be many more coming over the next couple of months.
