Spring

They say that when you’re doing what you love, you never work a day in your life.  If that’s true, I’ve NOT been working a crazy amount these days.

Spring

I couldn’t resist the blossoming of Spring!

Come On…

Come on Spring – kinda tired of riding my bike inside all the time.  Need some variety.

Summer Lovin’

I remember my youth when my mom would go out in the back yard and spend an afternoon pulling Japanese beetles off the flowers and dropping them into a can of gasoline.  Yep, that’s how I remember it.  So when I saw the beetles on the flowers today I had to grab my camera and, of course, I like to get creative (go figure).  Not only with my photography, but with the names and post titles and…well everything.  I just couldn’t help myself with this title.  Sorry Mom.

Summer Lovin'

I know nothing about entomology so this may or may not be a suitable title for the blog posts, but it’s appropriate as far as I’m concerned.

One of these days I’m going to invest in an actual macro lens.  Until then, enjoy…

Photo Blog

Can I just post a picture?  No writing.  This is, after all, a photo blog.  Can I just post an image that has no worldly significance other than to portray the subject in my viewfinder?  Is that acceptable?

Yes.

My mother inherited an enormous yard of flowers from my grandmother and is enjoying all the different colors these days.  I seem to remember, when I was much younger, my grandmother cross-pollinating various iris species to get a new one with crazy color schemes.  Am I not remembering that correctly?  Anyway, here's one of the many irises in the yard these days.  More images coming soon here.

Sure Sign

I know most people try to avoid having them in their yards.  I leave them so I know for sure that Spring is here.  Yeah, that’s my story…

Sure Sign

A sure sign that Spring has “sprung”

Almost There…

Almost There...

It’s pretty awesome how quickly and timely (for the Apple Blossom Festival) all the flowers and trees just pop around here.
