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.

After the rain

I love taking pictures of roses after rain or with morning dew on the petals.

Knock out roses are blooming pretty much year round around here. Right now they are very very happy. Roses are so inspirational to me they show such beauty in the petals.

Sunday we had some rain so I was able to get a few shots of the roses. I decided to give them each a post over the next week.

Thorny weed

I am not sure of the name of this weed but the blooms intrigue me.

The leaves have thorns and scratch you badly.

I rarely get a chance to photograph these.

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.

Pretty little weed

When we have had quite a bit of rain these little weeds pop up.

I love the flowers they are so delicate looking but very pretty.

The wind was blowing on Sunday but I did my best to get a few pictures & this one was my favorite.

Nature surrounds us with her beauty each day we just have to take the time to open our eyes and notice it.
