An April Day At Mamaw’s

Welcome to part two of April in Photos! πŸ™‚

Mamaw’s daffodils! At least, I think they are. May not be. The blooms on these are so small. She let me dig up some of the bulbs so maybe I’ll have some next year. πŸ™‚

I found some wildflowers along the path while walking to the lake.

I’m not sure what these are, but they are really pretty and have different shades of purples and pinks.

These were everywhere around the lake.

These are SO TINY.

The pink veins in the petals of this one are really neat.

I’ve never seen a flower with oddball petals like this one. Three smalls and a long one. It’s not symmetrical at all.

I heard a plane, so I thought I’d test out my zoom. I didn’t expect it to be this clear!

Apparently, there is a resident beaver living on Mamaw’s lake now.

Last photo of the day. Night was starting to fall, and the colors behind this pine were amazing.Β  A great way to end this post. πŸ™‚

My March 2019 In Photos

Just a quick note, I’ve had a lot going on this past week. I’m behind in reading posts and responding to your lovely comments here. I’m slowly working on it. πŸ™‚ In the meantime, here are some photos! I took a lot of photos in March. Also, coming soon will be A Lovely March Morning, and A March Day At Grandma’s. πŸ™‚ ❀

My allergies started in March. I was sniffing and sneezing a lot. Jackie curled up on my bed and went to sleep. And then I sneezed. I looked around to see if I disturbed her, and… I think it’s safe to say I did. πŸ˜† She looked disgusted with me. She wanted to be in the room with me to snooze, but my allergies weren’t having it. Sorry girl.

The dandelions were back!

So pretty. πŸ™‚

Daffodil! With a little spider hiding underneath. πŸ™‚

A robin! I don’t see many of these around here. I used to see them at my grandma’s though.

My tulips came up! Sadly, they seemed to go dormant before the bloom opened? I don’t know what happened. It was strange. The flower shriveled up and then the leaves stuck around for a while before doing the same. I dug into the pot to make sure the bulbs were okay, and it seemed healthy. I wonder when I bought them, they were on sale and meant for being displayed. I’m wondering if last year they were forced to bloom, and needed this year to gain energy for next year. I’m new to tulips so I don’t know.

Lovely little flower. ❀

Wildflowers! I like the blue color of these.

Vibrant. πŸ™‚

And the veins in the petals of these. ❀

Oh dear! πŸ˜€ Haha. I surprised this one when outside. Oops!

I like silhouetting things against a sunrise or sunset.

This was experimental. I tried to get the nebula in the constellation Orion. This was the result. πŸ™‚

The moon and branches! The branches are easy to see though sadly, haha.

And this is another installment of a Month In Photos! Hope to see you later for the other parts to this. πŸ™‚

A Day At Grandma’s

In response to Dutch Goes The Photo’s Photo Challenge – this is a collection of photos I took last Tuesday at my grandma’s.

You know I had to get more shots of the dead tree and the live tree next to it. XD For some reason, they fascinate me.

And I found some dandelion seed pods and some clover.

At this point, my mom hit a limb with the riding lawn mower, which knocked the belt off. She asked me to see if I could get it back on, and I did – eventually. Of course, I took the camera off my neck for that, and she got this photo. Thanks, mom! πŸ˜‚

And then I found some flowers! I really like the purple one with the seed pods around it. (I admit it – I staged that one. XD The pods weren’t originally that close but I pulled them over into the shot.)Β  And those yellow ones were everywhere! It was such a beautiful day. πŸ™‚
