A Few Spring Photos

Spring, when it came, was short lived. Still, it didn't fail to bring its beauty.

On April 30, we spent a few hours at Ouabache State Park. The trees hadn't leafed out yet, but that made it easier to spot and photograph these little yellow birds.

We loved the red of these buds against the blue sky.

Ten days later, our crabapple tree was in full bloom. Several days after that, our azalea bush was putting on a show for us. The following collage provides a look at spring at our home.

    1. I'm sure you're right about that long wait for spring making it extra special. It seems the shortest of seasons, but it outdoes itself in beauty.

  2. Linda, what a beautiful back yard with all the color of spring...such natural beauty. I know you so enjoy that scenery that your back yard gives.

    1. We do love our back yard. We planted all the evergreens and the crabapple tree back there where we moved here 29 years ago. It's become a haven for birds, squirrels, and rabbits and gives us a lot of pleasure. The two stars of the whole thing are the crabapple tree and the azalea bush, especially when they're in bloom. Thanks for stopping by.

    1. Thanks for the compliment on our yard, Steve. Doug deserves all the credit for keeping it trimmed and mowed. Doug thought that was a yellow warbler, too. Thanks for the confirmation.

    1. Thank you, Kim. We'll take Spring whenever she decides to show up, won't we? ;)

  6. You have a very beautiful yard in the Spring (and during the rest of the year as well!).

    I agree with you about the new viewing platform at the Sinks, but I really did not break any rules to get the shot I posted. A wide-angle lens comes in handy at times!
