A Lovely March Morning

Hello! Would you like to come with me while reminiscing on a walk I took in March? πŸ™‚ If so, keep reading!

It all started when I opened the door to see this gorgeous animal grazing in the woods.

And then another showed up!

Then I walked to the clearing so I could watch the sunrise.

The clouds were really odd that morning.

I couldn’t help but get a lot of photos of them!

The horizon looked as if it was on fire.


After the sun rose, I went in search of wildlife and flowers.

I found some! Obviously.

I don’t know what these are, but they were growing on what appeared to be a small tree.

I really like them, whatever they are. πŸ™‚

I don’t know what these are either, but they were growing on trees. πŸ˜€

More daffodils! (I posted a bunch in February, hence the “more.”)

Different color ones too. πŸ™‚

Three different colors!

Sun filtering through the petals. ❀

A baby cardinal! The parents were around protecting the little guy.

These were on a tree in the woods. I wonder if it is an apple. It came out before the dogwood did so it wasn’t that.

And this concludes my walk on this lovely March morning. πŸ˜€ Thanks for joining me. πŸ™‚

Treasure Tuesday – 5/07/2019

I wrote this at the end of March and never posted it. Allergies (and I somehow managed to get poison ivy on my hands so I’ve been dealing with the rash for the past week and a half) are keeping me from doing much metal detecting at the moment, so enjoy these from March!

Most of my finds lately weren’t worth posting about. Fencing, aluminum foil, bottle cap, nails… I do have a few notable finds as seen in these photos:

I have no idea. My dad has no idea either. These triangles were all under the electric pole. We think it may have something to do with that. None are rusting or are in bad shape… I may have to find something artsy to do with them. And the one on the left reminds me of a hat. So I may have to make that happen. XD

However, I think the best “finds” weren’t metal. It was seeing God’s creation as winter ends. 😊 I didn’t just take a metal detector outside – I brought my camera too. Here are some of the other non-metal treasures:

If I had known there was what looks like a bird and two squirrels in this tree, I would have taken more photos of it. Happy accident. XD

This gem was waiting for me that morning.

I’m not sure what this is, but there is a lot of this grass stuff and it looked so orange from the morning sun. After this, I accidentally got it all over me. Turns out shaking it will cause it to fly everywhere like dandelions. Good thing I remembered my allergy medicine. XD

Dewdrops made everything sparkle.

Morning sun and a dying leaf? It sounded like it could make a decent photo so I went for it.

HUGE knotty tree! Didn’t find anything under it but the tree itself is pretty incredible.

This wood was such an odd find. The pattern was so strange I got a photo of it.

Wildflowers!

More wildflowers!

At the end of the hunt, this is what I ended up with.Β  Coax, clamp, metal ring, a metal pipe, and a spoon. I recognized the spoon. It went missing about 15 years ago. One of my dogs stole it and I never found it. Now I know why. They buried it. XD The best find I didn’t need the metal detector for…

Yup. This was sticking out of the ground. Interestingly, the seal doesn’t appear to be broken, so I guess the Coke inside just spewed out? But there is no residue from it. So weird. But it’s a cool glass bottle. I assumed it’s 1980’s or later because there is a faded barcode on it and bar codes didn’t become popular until the 1980s. XD And I was correct. I Googled it and found other bottles that are 1980’s vintage. Of course, those looked a LOT better than this one because they haven’t spent who knows how long buried. XD

(Thanks to T.R. Noble for making this for me! <3)

Blood Red Lilies

I guess this is the last in the series of lily posts. (The first were the yellow lilies and the second were the orange lilies in case you missed it.) I didn’t get as many of the process this time for some reason. I thought I had but when the yellow and orange lilies bloomed, I guess I forgot to get more photos of these. Oops.

Babies!

Medium size bud – with a guardian. πŸ™‚

Almost ready to bloom…

Hello, red Asian Lily! 😍

I love the rich red color. I didn’t expect these to bloom until this week, but they bloomed on the 31st of May.Β  These are the first lilies I bought about three years ago. πŸ™‚

Color Your World – Shocking Pink: Caterpillar And Pink Blossoms

In response to Color Your World – Shocking Pink: Here is a caterpillar I took photos of last spring, on pink blossoms. πŸ™‚ My goal was to get photos of the blossoms – which was not easy because I don’t like heights and I had to stand on a ladder to reach them – and finding the caterpillar up there was like icing on the cake. God really made my week by making sure that little guy was on the blooms at just the right time. 😊 I just wish I had centered the photo a little better; but in my defense, I was gripping the slightly shaky ladder for dear life with my left hand and my right hand was getting really tired of being held over my head and refused to do what I wanted… πŸ˜‚
