While I’ve been lazy and not getting much artwork done lately, I have been trying to snap some photos of the amazing springtime transformation. We seem to have gotten spring early this year, and the grass already needs to be mowed.
I spent some time outside yesterday and the day before, just walking with my camera. It’s one of life’s great pleasures to drink in nature and be able to photograph it. It’s been pretty windy here lately, so it’s been a challenge to get nice, crisp photos of the tender young leaves. Here are some that did turn out ok though. I hope you enjoy.
I love the first grass of the year. It always looks so velvety and soft.
The hostas are springing to life already.
As you can see, it’s quite dry. We got some rain last night, though, so I imagine the plants will really start to grow now.
The crab apple tree has the most beautiful red leaves, and the blossoms are hot pink. You’ll likely see photos of the blossoms when they show up later. It’s a very pretty tree.
I’ll bet you can figure out who is in the center of the photo below. 🙂
Of course, I’m never alone in my outside hikes. I always have at least one cat begging for attention.
And speaking of cats…I am happy to say that my little outdoor feline family has grown up and thrived over winter, and a couple of them will soon be mothers, themselves. Look at those little round tummies!
Happy Spring! Thank you for looking.
