On this first day of June,I want to share some of my early flowers with you.
We have recently had a lot of rain and some fairly severe flooding in my town,but those pictures will wait for another day.No one has been injured as far as I know and since we live in an area where the water can run off quickly,we will be just fine.
In between rainy days,I took some time to capture some beauty on my yard.
The Marigolds always add a splash of colour.
New leaves hold a special attraction to me.I love the delicate beauty they have and the range of colours that show up on an otherwise green leaf. This is one of the Mountain Ash leaves,isn't it pretty?
Ok,this is not on my yard,but on Jake's Uncle's yard.This sweet couple had invited me to come photograph the birds in their plum tree.The best picture I got that day was of this female Baltimore Oriole. The tree was loaded with flowers,but I think all the rain we have had since that day may have kept the fruit from setting.I guess we will see as the summer progresses.
Back on my yard,my potted plants are beginning to show signs of growth.
This is a small flower,no larger than half an inch across.The tailing vine is called Bacopa and in summer it is covered with these white flowers.Now all I can do is hope that mine will perform like that.I will be sure to keep you posted.
Finally,here is a macro of one of the Geranium flowers.I really like the two-toned colours of this one.
With all the rain we have had,my plants are definitely wet enough,now all they need is some heat to really begin growing well.
The Oriole shot was taken with the Canon 7D,100-400mm lens,all others were taken using the Canon SX50,on macro setting.
Thought for today:
Ten thousand leaves on every tree,and yet there be men who question God.
