solo post - L, Nikon
A week or so ago I posted a spring preview and said I would post when the azaleas were in full bloom. Well this is the only photo I have at the moment, but as you can see the azaleas are vibrant* red when the sun hits them just so. The trees now have their spring green leaves and the grass is at it's greenest ever; the red maples display a multitude of colors from light green to dark red; the hydrangeas that have looked dead all winter are now full of bright green leaves with the hopes of wonderfully large blooms in the summer; the viburnum is loaded with white blossoms that glow - I can see them from my kitchen window as I wash dishes at night. Everything looks the prettiest to me around 6pm when the late afternoon sun is in the direction I am facing taking this photo here, but unfortunately I haven't been getting home that early.
Oh, and I've noticed a new visitor to the bird feeder this week - the sweet little goldfinches - a sure sign of spring.
I hope to get some more photos over the weekend and get back on track with my blogging and visiting all of you - seeing whats blooming in your world.
*sort of looks like I have applied hue saturation to this photo - I didn't, it's sooc.
The photos on the left are taken by me, Leslye, the mother. The photos on the right are taken by my daughter, Taylor – unless otherwise noted. Comments are always welcome. thanks
If you care to visit, I, Leslye, have another blog - AutumnSun where I ramble around different paths and pleasures of my own.
