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.

Spring!

I've been waiting for spring to come.

Top of the World

This is a tiny house finch perched on top of a 30-foot pine tree in my yard.  His song was loud and clear, but I had to scour the trees to find him.  After a few verses, he flew off.

Then my camera spied this wasp nest in a neighbor's tree.  I knocked on the door and told him we had a problem.  I offered to begin collecting rocks.  In the end, I gave him a can of wasp spray.

Mr. Finch reappeared, same song, more verses.

A Lucky Glance Up

I happened to look up from my book and saw the sun setting.  As I pulled the memory stick from the camera, the sun set and these stunning colors disappeared.
