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