Spring Into Summer...

More photos today of Nature's garden gifts.

Nothing purer than a dandelion in the summer!:

I can't tell you how THRILLED we were to see a Baltimore Oriole in our yard. He has made several appearances and each time I run for my camera:

I LOVED this had been raining and he had just shook his feathers hard and was a huge fluff ball!:

Blue Jay in the rain:

Tulip center magnified:

I loved the softness of this pink tulip shot. I think Heaven must have some like this:

Miracles abound!!
Another dandelion lover!!
I'd be running for my camera, too, but I know I wouldn't get the shots you do. The oriole is just stunning. Love the shot with the orange--LOL! Makes them look almost related! And the drenched bluejay...the pin growth...all of it.
Your posts are just delicious. They quench the thirst of this housebound lady in Fargo. Most grateful I stumbled across your blog.

I'm just not lucky enough to get a photo of an Oriole...yet anyways!

It is good to be back at last catching up with your blogging activities. What fabulous photos I found here today.

Pat Tillett said...

Wow wow and wow! In the second oriole pic, (where he's puffed up) he has the same shape as the orange...

Paz said...

The Tulip and Forget me Not pictures are brilliant

Pat said...

OMG I LOVED the puffed up Oriole! That is so funny and he is so cute! All the flowers are gorgeous....the forget-me-nots look neon!

Debbie Lo said...

Oh my gosh! Each photo you posted here is incredible! Between your natural photographic ability, your wonderful camera, and your computer software, these are some of the most beautiful, clear and "tell-tale" photos I've ever seen. You should be a professional photographer for a living, girl!

Just love the oriole with his feathers fluffed up. And the blue jay in the rain photo came out so nicely. And as always, the flowers, were SO colorful!!! Great job!
