Every year I put a bird house on the front porch and every year I complain because the birds wake me up so early. This year I put it on the back porch. The birds are right outside my office. It is kind of a distraction but I don’t mind.
Photography is about light. I guess in this case it is about pink flowers too but they do look better as the sun is going down.
I am not at all sure why but I know that it is true. There are people who live in places where there are no lilacs. The Lilac bush can live a hundred years and it needs very little care. This bush blooms and I can see it from the kitchen window and am reminded of the two young children who gave to it me many years ago for Mother’s Day.
I have grown these for years. Easy to grow they like shade. Plant them and forget them.
Flowers are blooming everywhere. There just are not enough hours in the day to photograph them all. I love the apple and crabapple blossoms are my favorites. I got this one in the evening when there was just a little sunshine on the petals.
May showers get May flowers wet and I am OK with that. My tulips are blooming and so are the purple iris. From now until the first hard frost there will always be something blooming in my yard . . an weeds too.
