Birdhouse in the fog

On a foggy morning last weekend, I was outside taking a few pictures & I noticed the purple birdhouse on the fence post.

I couldn’t help but see the contrast of the birdhouse, fence, grass, and fog.

The little things we see often get overlooked for something that stood out more.

Open your eyes and truly see what is around you and that is the day your life will change forever.

Pretty little butterfly

Everywhere we look there are butterflies in all colors, shapes, and sizes.

Springtime is such a wonderful time of the year we get to see nature come back to life again and enjoy her beauty.

Cherish each day go outdoors and feel the sun on your skin, the breeze in your hair, take a deep breath and enjoy the beauty.

Nature puts on a new movie every day but you have to get outdoors to see it.

They’re Back

Last year we got lucky and the cedar waxwings found other mulberry trees so we actually got to pick some.

This year they are eating our mulberries before we can pick them.

There will be 60 in the tree at the same time chowing down.

Daisy was mad because she loves mulberries and she went out there and was looking all over the ground to find some. I finally found a few on the ground for her. Yes, our dog picks berries lol.

Nature is so beautiful and these birds colors are truly amazing. I enjoy watching them even if they are thieves.

Pink roses

Here are a few pictures of the pink roses with raindrops.

These are some more of our knock out roses.

The texture of a rose is enhanced with the raindrops it truly shows off how delicate they are.

Lichen, Moss, and Algae

Where there is a sick or dead tree it becomes a host for many colorful things.

This limb fell off during a rainstorm.

On each of the limbs were lichen, moss & algae and there were all kinds of it.

I love photographing stuff like this for the colors, textures and the close-up examination using my macro lens.

Gate with a vine

This tangerine cross vine is planted on another fence but it decided it wanted to cross over to the gate area that goes into the backyard.

Actually, I love how it photographs with the gate.

A little woodlark

Every now and then you see a bird whos markings are different.

This little guy I think is a woodlark is much lighter and really stood out at the feeder.

I love getting the chance to photograph different types of birds than I normally see.

How many bird feeders do you have?

We have 3 off the side deck 4 in the backyard that are similar. Then we have two hanging feeders, two wire cage feeders that hold the suet. Then we put out 3 hummingbird feeders.

Proving nature with the seeds for life gives me the chance to help them out and get a few pictures in the process. It is a win-win situation.

Wisteria blooms

I love wisteria it starts blooming before it leafs out but the purples are just amazing.

For a few days, you see blooms and bark then here come the leaves and even more blooms.

The bumblebees love it so in order to take pictures you have to be willing to share the space with 50 + bumblebees. I really do not mind they never bother me. I even grabbed a picture of one zooming by.

We have wisteria on our back fence and I love it I just wish the blooms lasted longer.

Surround yourself with blooms and your days will be brighter & more colorful.
