I have a huge lilac bush in my backyard. I trimmed it last year and now it is hard to reach the blooms. I love the color and the smell and wish that the blooms could last longer.
The blooming has commenced. Spring is shorter this year which means the crabapples are blooming just as the tulips are opening and the lilacs are not far behind.
A close-up of a fern I found while biking through the woods. Ferns are ancient and amazing too. The picture was taken with a mobile phone with a macro lens added on. I especially like the colors.
Taken close-up with my mobile phone using a macro lens. Almost makes me want to get a macro lens or my camera.
If you look carefully you will see wind chimes on the porch and Christmas lights too. The puddle was impressively deep.
I took a lot of puddle pictures this year because we had a lot of snow melt and many puddles. Some are deep and others are shallow. Many have pictures in them. This was a shallow clear puddle with a stick in it.
