Fungus among Us

Not the edible kind though, the gills on the underside were what caught my eye.
and then, she {snapped}

Project 52 - Green

Have you ever had one of those days where the list of things is about as long as both your arms combined, and right from the get go, things start to go south? Mine started early this morning when I had to wake up the Bear to move his car so I could go out for an appointment, and his car would not start. Fast forward a bit and the tow truck hauled that away to the repair shop. So on with the day. And such a long one. It ended about ten minutes ago.
As one of my client's would say to me, I am "Zausted."
That is Exhausted in her vocabulary!
Just want a comfy place to sit and rest.
Even this carved tree would do I think!
The quiet calming green of the forest.
It was one of those days that when Plan A failed, Plan B or Plan C had to be dreamed up to save the moment. Kind of like a fork in the path, which one is the best to take?
So tired now at the end of the day, that it is even hard to focus. I yawn so big that things are out of focus.
I am off to bed, I think I could sleep around the clock!
Good Night, All.

Lowly Hummingbird

This tiny Hummingbird never leaves the area for winter. You can go down to Mill Lake Park and see him hanging out on the tree branches at the side of the lake. The people living next to the lake feed him through the winter. I think he is too comfortable to fly south for winter.

Spring Flowers

A few of the Spring Flowers blooming right now.

Some of the Cherry Blossoms. These are mostly gone now, the blooming season just about done.
Its Daffodil season right now and the Tulips are green and getting ready to bloom.
Shadows on the petals no matter how much or little sun there is!
Tiny Pansies. Got to love Pansy faces!
Everyday you see signs of Spring, more Spring flowers blossoming.

Project 52 - Things that Grow

project 52 p52 weekly photo challenge my3boybarians.com
Kind of scary looking, right?
Actually this baby Garter Snake came slithering across my path and was only about a foot or so long. Any bigger and I might of screamed like a girl and ran the other way.
This little guy though has a lot of growing to do before it could make me totally lose it and run screaming into the night!!
After I got over my shock of seeing him and actually wanted to take more photos of him, he instead just wanted to get the heck away from me as fast as he could slither!

Project 52 - Sacrifice.

project 52 p52 weekly photo challenge my3boybarians.com
When I saw this white cross in the distance next to the thorny vine I stood next to, I was struck by how the two images seemed to belong together.
It seemed a perfect picture to feature for today's theme, sacrifice.

Cherry Blossoms

Cherry Blossoms are very slow to bloom this year, here are a few of the very late bloomers.
I found some more Cherry Blossoms today and hopefully you won't be totally sick of them by the time their season is done, because I have more to post in later posts.

More Magnolias

Magnolia trees started blooming here long before the Cherry Blossoms, even when the temperatures were freezing and snow made regular apprearances. They must be a hardy flower.

These are the two trees these above photos came from.

Project 52 - Fooling around.

project 52 p52 weekly photo challenge my3boybarians.com
I can't say I am one for April Fools Day jokes. I don't play any jokes on people, at least not for the past few years.
I think the big joke this year has been by Mother Nature. We had a nice mild winter which did not start until the first day of spring. Then the cold rolled in along with such inclement weather that we don't usually see this late. Snow, hail, sleet, and buckets and buckets of rain.
I have been on a quest to find the elusive Cherry blossoms. Everything is usually pink this time of year. I found three trees, in front of the barn photo I posted the other day with cherry blossoms on them. I got chased by a Pit Bull and another black big dog back to my car when I took these few photos of those blossoms. Not fun. Not enjoyable.

Very few trees have blooms on them, but I am watching them and will be out taking more photos as they do bloom. It is still cold, though and they are cautious!
