Took the camera with me to do morning chores - there are some green things finally poppin up around here, and I wanted to get a few halfway decent snapshots.
Of course, the animals were not feeling very photogenic this morning, so I skipped that and went to flowers. They have little choice but to be photgenic. They don't get moody, or distracted because I just fed them, and food is oh, so important to fat sassy horses, chickens & even wild geese that won't keep the hell out of my pasture. Rotten geese. I hate them so.
Sorry. Got caught up for a sec. Where was I? Oh... right. Flowers. Well, Daffodils are blooming, and starting to go past their blooming time even. Hyacinths are lovely, but when there are cats & a teenage boy that make a point of trying to trample them throughout the rest of the year, well. . . they don't fare so well.
Lucky for me, the cherry blossoms are out. In full force, too. I liked this one best out of those that I snapped.
BUT, while checking out the bee hives (pretty sure they are kaput) I was stunned to see this little bugger smiling at me next to the fence.
Yes, yes, YES!!! I love lilacs! I can't wait to have them in full bloom so I can pick a few and let them 'stink' up the house. :) One of my favorite stinks.
Happy Sunday, everyone!
