More of the U.P. Spring!
Today, I will still continue to show pictures of
our beautiful Upper Peninsula of Michigan spring
as it unfolded...
This tulip was about to bloom...but I loved the promise of all of the colors about to burst in this one~!:
A grackle in flight toward the newly sprouted leaves on the tree:
A chipping sparrow with "that look" in his eyes..
(you know the one)..
the "don't you have more SEED for me?" look!:
Every spring I await the
here they are,
just coming out!:
A fresh tulip!:
A geese family!:
I love those fuzzy babies!:
I bet they are a handful to watch every second!!:
But, worth every second of the care they take!
In future posts, I caught closeup pictures of these little ones as they grew...

- The Retired One
- I retired in June 2008 and started my blog in November 2008. I worked at several jobs as a Registered Nurse prior to retirement. I LOVE being retired! Blogging has offered me a whole new venue to start writing again and to share new hobbies such as gardening, birdwatching and sharing my nature photography. If you like my blog, PLEASE click on "follow this blog". Having a lot of followers reading my blog gives me incentive to continue to do photography and to continue to write. I also LOVE comments, so I encourage you to leave me a comment after you read my posts. Thanks everyone, for taking the time to read me!!
