The Look of Spring

26 Apr

I just love this time of year with nature coming back to life after the long winter.

The birds are singing.

The butterflies are starting to show up.

It makes me wish I actually had flowers in my yard, but, you  know, goats…dog…

I have to be satisfied with the few blooms I can find.

And of course, it wouldn’t be spring without kids.

This really is my favorite time of year.

I like the way the lamb’s ear was growing in the old stump.

I also found a little bug.

There was also a little toadstool.  Sadly, no morels this year.

I also found another columbine in the yard.

The geranium is from my house.  It was a mother’s day gift from two years ago (I think).

I do hope you’ll consider joining me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this coming week are at the top of my sidebar.

I’m sharing today with Macro Monday, I Heart Macro, Shadow Shot Sunday, Monday Mellow Yellows, Today’s Flowers.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

16 Apr

This week’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday items are: outside, collection, tiny, hair and hungry.

For some reason, Haley’s boys always think they are hungry.  Really.  Ask them.  They will tell you that they are starving despite being the fattest kids on the farm.

For some reason, my box has hair all over it.  I wonder why.

Maybe we should ask Snickers.  He’s decided it makes a perfect bed.

I seem to have a collection of tea cups.  My sister has gifted me with several.  I do like them.

I dried my laundry outside on the line for the first time this year today.  In case you can’t tell, we were once again very windy.

At least it’s warm (all right, it’s hot).  That has the flowers blooming.  I found some tiny violets outside my fence.

I’m also sharing with Saturday’s Critters, Camera Critters, and Shadow Shot Sunday.
