spring

well . . .

so much for my “finding spring” photo hunt.

Signs of spring are still a little sparse on PEI.

But it still was absolutely perfect for an April evening on PEI. 62 degrees, beautiful blue sky and the birds were singing madly to one another.

I could hear one little red-breasted robin singing his heart out. I’m sure he must have been calling his lady love. I finally located him at the very top of one of our scraggly spruce trees. So I dashed inside to get my camera but when I came out this fellow had taken his place.

I don’t like crows although I’m sure they have their place in the ecosystem. They are such bullies toward the little songbirds.

My tulips are coming along. I find it hard to wait so my sweet husband stopped at our local tulip farm and brought me home a beautiful bouquet. The farm has a warehouse crammed with all  varieties of tulips. I plan to go on a photo expedition when they are blooming in the fields. Unlike Lovella, it will be a few weeks before we can tiptoe through the tulips.

My sister gave me that little blue jug. It’s perfect for bouquets.

The evening light was perfect so I took a macro photo outside.I love the light shining through the petals. I’ll have to post it in my sadly neglected Project 366. 🙂

Sophie and I are enjoying many lovely walks – well I walk – she loves to run. Sarah caught her in action in this photo.

 You can see the grass in this photo of Sarah and Sophie – it’s just beginning to turn green. We have a lot of raking to do this weekend but it’s no chore this time of year. It’s a joy just to be outside.

Have a lovely weekend my friends.

  1. Really nice photo of the macro tulips. I think that because we have flowers all year long, I don’t appreciate the arrival of the daffodils and tulips as much as you Northerners do.

  2. Aah spring! We even have spring here in the Arizona desert. I’m inspired by your photos to go in search of spring. Sometimes I take for granted the blah landscape but i need to look a little closer and appreciate God’s creation. Thanks for the beauty.
