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. ๐Ÿ™‚ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ โค

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. ๐Ÿ˜† 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

Daffodil! With a little spider hiding underneath. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. โค

Wildflowers! I like the blue color of these.

Vibrant. ๐Ÿ™‚

And the veins in the petals of these. โค

Oh dear! ๐Ÿ˜€ 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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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. ๐Ÿ™‚

First Day Of Spring – March 20th, 2018

Let’s celebrate the first day of Spring by marveling at the beauty of God’s creation! Especially the flowers…

Easter Lillies

My mom has these beautiful flowers planted all over our yard. And the fun thing is – different batches of flowers have different colors. The above one, if I remember correctly, was planted around a tree near our driveway.

This one was in the flower bed of my dad’s shop.

These were in the flower bed in frontย of our house.

These were outside the flower bed at my mom’s gazebo.


Peach Blossoms

This one is also known as a selfie fail. ๐Ÿ˜‚ย I had the camera on a tripod and put the camera on timerย mode. I ended up having to get on a step-stool to get a proper selfie. Andย then once I was up there, I saw the bees…

If you look closely,ย you can see a bee in the center of this photo. Or the backside of one,ย anyway.


Pear Blossoms


Tulips

I found this beauty at Walmart for $1. Someone messed up and put three tulip bulbs in one pot; it was supposed to be $1 for one tulip. So I guess I got each tulip for 33.333333 cents? Haha. And each tulip is at a different stage of blooming. This is the first one. I expect the next two to bloom at the end of the month or in early April. I hope we have more time the next time we go back to Walmart because I plan to look and see if they made more mistakes… ๐Ÿ˜…

I love the texture of the petals.

Especially with the sunlight filtering through them.

And the inside is really awesome too.


Wildflowers

You’ve probably noticed that I have a fondness for wildflowers. So of course, I had to get photos of them too. ๐Ÿ™‚

We have a few trees in our woods growing wild that have some of the most beautiful pink blossoms!

I don’t know what they are, but I really like them.

Wild violets!

I didn’t see the plant that the flower came from, but we have been getting high winds, so it could have blown in from anywhere. I’ve seen the vines that have these kinds of flowers, but the flowers on those aren’t opened yet.

This is also growing wild. At first, I thought it might be a dogwood, but no other dogwoods are blooming. The blooms remind me of my mom’s apple tree. I would compare them, but it hasn’t bloomed yet. It didn’t bloomย last year either. We’re beginning toย think it’s dead… but if this is a new apple tree that nature planted, I can’t wait to see if it produces apples this year. ๐Ÿ™‚
