Rabbit in the grass

We have a very healthy population of wild rabbits.

I found out my brother n law feeds them in the barn and they all run up and gather at his feet. My husband saw this and could not believe it.

They come over here and get in the garden and roam the yard.

The other day 6 or 7 of them stretched across the 2 acres but they were heading to his house 2 acres over from us I think he was running late feeding them.

It was like “Revenge of the Rabbits”.

The beauty of wildlife never ceases to amaze me and getting to photograph it is an added bonus.

Light Rays

Early morning sunrise pictures with silhouettes are one of my favorite pictures to take.

Capturing the sun’s rays through the tree makes the beauty of a new day even more special.

The beauty of natural light

I love the early morning when the sun is rising and a new day is beginning.

The grass is still wet from the dew, the fog is lightly covering the pastures and the blooms of the morning glory bush on the fence line are glistening with the light shining through the purple petals.

There sits a wicker chair under the ash tree with the morning light cascading through her branches & across the grass.

The wire on the fence takes on a golden glow and the fence post is highlighted.

The birds are chirping because it is a new day and there is an occasional moo from the cows in the pasture.

I really love the simplicity of country life.

Variegated Shell Ginger

Variegated Shell Ginger is one of my favorite plants.

We have them planted in the shade accented by sword fern they are under two very large 40 year old oak trees.

Since there were no freezes in the past few winters they are thriving. Currently, they are about 5 foot + tall and 8 foot wide or more in all four directions. Needless to say, they multiply like crazy and then you can share with your friends.

If it freezes they die back and they will not bloom the next spring. They will come back but it will take them some time to get full again.

The blooms start out as a pod looking thing then all the white blooms start showing and those open up to yellow flowers. They are quite striking.

We started out with a one-gallon container of the ginger and now I could give 10 people all a gallon and it would never look like I touched it.

My husband thinks we should sell these plants so he has about 20 in quart containers and another 10 + in gallon containers.

When you landscape your yard research your plants and always buy stuff that multiplies then you can move it to several different locations. Make sure you pay attention to the sun requirements.

A beautiful well-manicured yard shows off the time and love you have put into it.

Sunrise Rose

The morning sunrise kissed the petals of the rose and the dew sparkled like diamonds.

The bokeh is the glitter in this picture.

Sunrise Manvel, Texas 2020

I was able to capture this picture Monday morning of the beautiful sunrise in Manvel, Texas.

Our view has no obstacles just wide open space which makes for wonderful pictures.

Every sunrise is unique its beauty & colors along with the clouds is etched in our mind as one of life’s paintings we got to enjoy.

 

Macro of a Rose

I love photographing flowers with a macro lens and it is all the better when there is moisture on the flowers from recent rain.

This is a knockout rose in our backyard.

Flowers can brighten our days and give us great joy.

Neotropic Cormorant

These two birds are Neotropic Cormorant.

We spotted these two beauties while out at Brazos Bend State Park in Needville, Texas.

I like the way these birds colors look painted on.

Foggy morning sketch

Lately, I have been playing a lot in the sketch options on my photo editing program.

This picture is in our pasture but across the street and I like the way this one turned out.

Some pictures work out better than others when trying this out.
