April 27


We've been having lot's of crazy weather here, and I know a lot of you have too. It's been raining like crazy and there were tornadoes in the next county last night. This evening, the sun is out and I wandered in the yard with my camera and enjoyed it!
Our Japanese Maple is budding. Isn't new growth beautiful?

Yes, beautiful! I am leaving full-blown spring in NC tomorrow, to head back up north where spring will just be starting. . .

The springs rains will really get the trees and flowers popping. I am glad that spring has sprung in your yard.

Your Japanese Maple buds are beautiful, we are having the crazy weather here too, the lilacs are late this year...so anxious for warmer weather...

Lovely close-up shot. That's what I did last evening--wondered around in my yard with my camera, documenting spring. It's quite interesting, soothing, and inspiring all at once.

Yes it is nice to see new growth. Nice to just be out and take pictures. Just you and the camera!

A little sunshine - lucky you !!!!

Hi MAri, Your photos are a feast for the eyes. I've just caught up on all your photos I've missed in the past few weeks-- Wow! They are all amazing but I love the horse plow one. It reminds me of where I grew up.

Hope all is well and your japanese Maple continues to bloom.

Very beautiful! This is so pretty with the pretty pinks of the new buds against the creamy green background. It's almost mesmerizing...I look at it and start daydreaming.
