I am so pumped about the end of spring and the beginning of summer I can hardly stand it. Our Colorado spring season exhibited the usual schizophrenic tendencies with the tease of warm, beautiful weather, to rainy days and a big snow drop in late April. I believe all of this is past us and now we can re-focus on the bright, sunny, colorful days ahead.
I took a spin around our yard yesterday and noticed the vibrant blooms we long for in the dead of winter, are starting to surface.
“I must have flowers, always and always”
I am not sure I would categorize these as true Macro shots since they were taken with my iPhone – but they are pretty close. Perhaps I’ll get the big lens out for the next round.
Thanks, Irene at Heaven’s Sunshine, for challenging us every week to seek beauty in photography and nature.
Columbine is popping up all over the yard – I love this flower for many reasons, but it is the state flower for Colorado.
I had no clue flowering onions were a thing – I thought Sean was out of his ever-loving mind. He wanted to pull them out of the ground, but I am sooo glad we didn’t. The bees sure do love them – not too many of those around these days.
Tulips are sooo wonderful – always sad to see them go….
These Bluish flowers are new to me this year. Not a clue what these are – they are so tiny (a quarter of the size of a dime) and delicate.
I hope this kick-started a good week for some of you stuck indoors. Hang in there if you are.
