When the Sun Comes Over the MountainL

Yesterday as Ben and I left for a late afternoon walk, I actually said, "When the sun comes over the mountain," I need to get out my camera.

It isn't hard to miss the sun in the mornings.

For a half hour, things get pretty intense in my kitchen.

Intense was not found outside.

All was peaceful and zen-like.

I love mornings.

New Bird at the Feeder

My husband spied a new bird at the feeder earlier this week.

My camera finally caught him.  Meet Mr. Western Tanager.

After Some Rain

Ben and I walked around the block this afternoon.  Sometimes after a lot of rain we see mushrooms.

We've had a lot of rain.

Purple Flower

Ben picked up the planters from the greenhouse a little early.  I spied this beautiful blossom this afternoon.

Bright Red Leaves on a Spring Day

Apparently there is a reason the red maple tree has its name.

Red Maple Leaves

The sun made an appearance after a sudden burst of rain this afternoon.  Glistening raindrops filled the entire tree.  This is a case of what my eyes were seeing was spectacular, but the camera couldn't catch it.  

Sometimes, I have to step back and look at what my camera is seeing, which was bright, new foliage on our red maple tree.

I've been waiting for spring to come.
